Love Yourself :

She's currently #23 on UAC.

Entered the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart @ number 49.

U + ME :
Currently 25(27) on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart

LY is now #45 on urban stations !
It's flopping enormously on iTunes though, not a good choice of single, the public is clearly showing no interest in that one.

U+ME is 20(25) on the R&B/Hip-Hop Aiplay chart !

It wasn't meant to be a single. It's a album filler. But if the entire song sounded like the intro... it would've been EPIC.

Love Yourself is Mary's 2nd most played song on Spotity. It's averaging over 60,000 spins a day. U+Me is averaging 40,000 spins a day and is her 3rd most played song on Spotify. TOI is averaging 25,000 spins a day, on Spotify. But of course, Hurricane Family Affair is averaging over 100,000 spins a day and none of her singles this era has been able to top it. Lol.

I thought it was interesting to see LY climb to #2 on Spotify. I thought it was going to lag.

U+Me is #2 on UAC radio. Should go to #1 tomorrow or Friday.

I need another UAC song. SO we can get 3 No.1 hits from that chart. I actually wouldn't mind 4 No.1's on UAC radio. I have a feeling she can comfortable push 500K-1million with 4 No.1 hits on that chart.

I have NO hope for a Hot 100 entry. LOL. Radio is even treating Mariah like trash.
They aren't treating black women in 40s right. That's just that.

Mary's actually possible of getting a Hot 100 entry, it just really DEPENDS. I think as a feature.

I'm thinking 70-80K. There is hyper, amongst her core audience, which is black women. If you aren't a black women and aren't around them, there's a chance you don't hear of the hype surrounding this album. I see it on twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Am rooting for this album. Am not a fan of love yourself to be honest but I sure rinsed U + Me on the plane when I was coming back from holiday. The lyrics, melody and just everything of this song is just to real.

Am hoping U + Me goes no.1 on US Adult R&B songs.

I predict the album to sell 60-75k the first weekend in the US. It should also be more stable than the last album due to the fact that she already has two Urban AC smashes from the album :)

It wont count towards the first week (or any week), no. The bundle deal they offered doesn't fit in with the rules that soundscan sticks by, her team really failed on that one but whatever.

Album is #3 + #34 on iTunes & #6 on Amazon US.
