Gemini Feed on iTunes
#25 Peru
#66 Australia
#71 Poland
#92 Russia
#98 Canada
#130 United States
#155 United Kingdom
#181 Ireland
#198 Vietnam

Just took a look at iTunes and saw that the single is doing quite well for her standards, so i thought i'm opening a topic now. Not sure what to expect, i hope this album will do better than "Goddess" did, which didn't live up to its hype chartswise.

I asked whether I should turn the Goddess thread into her C&SH but this answers my question :lol:

Edit: Just saw your PM Tansike!

Gemini Feed is brilliant and has real potential. I could see radios playing it

Oh :lol: Sorry, i started this topic before checking who made that topic then, i thought someone like Alice did so it won't get updated anyway so i just did this and checked afterwards... :lol: :oops:

I hope so for "Gemini Feed", probably her second most radio friendly song so far (following "Beggin For Thread"...) :D

^ well you're right, but i think being Top100 on iTunes and Spotify in Australia and near to the Top100 in NZ is already a good start, especially for her 'standards' :)

Glad you snatched the thread, Tansike. :lol:

This is doing good and has a better start than Goddess, so pleasant to see ! :cry:
She needs to release Trainwreck as a single, it has potential to be a decent hit for her and it's perfect for Winter ( + TINAU could be nice, as well ! ).

UK Monday Update

15 Banks - The Altar *

Not bad! It doesn't look like it will outpeak Goddess' #20 peak though. It's a very busy week, 9 new releases also above her

And the album is expected to sell between 17 and 20k SPS, which is quite decent ! :D

TOP 15: DEAD HEAT MAKES FOR A LIVELY RACE

Columbia’s Solange and Jagjaguwar’s Bon Iver are in a dead heat in the race for this week’s #1 on our SPS chart. Solange has been defying the typical new release trend all week; yesterday, the fourth day of release, was her biggest so far at iTunes. If this trend continues, we may be raising the projections before week’s end. Bon Iver is expected to have strong indie numbers which should keep the race tight until the end. Bon Iver is seemingly a lock for #1 in sales.

As many as 11 new releases could appear on our album chart Top 15 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers re-enter the Top 5 thanks to strong redemptions from their ticket bundle which went on sale last week. While we don’t think RHCP will catch Bon Iver in sales, we’re keeping a close eye on these redemptions. Here’s how it looks at midweek.

SPS

Not in Top 15

*Bon Iver (Jagjaguwar) 54-59k
