I read somewhere smth about this having sold 7k+ already in the USA.
If she keeps pulling like 5k per day, that'd be an achievement and could end up selling like 35k or 40k, which is more than she did w/T, TAOLG, YM, Infinity, I don't...

Problem is radio ain't touching this and streaming has been low.

Considering that she was not put on any playlists yesterday, I think she is off to a decent start. The real prediction will be after today. If this is no real traction after the song is added to playlists on Spotify, then I will start to worry.

As I told you yesterday on the other thread, expecting 1 million was simply unrealistic. Really really unrealistic.

She had less than half a day in some territories and, as it was a Thursday release, it was not added to any playlist.

We'll see tomorrow if the playlists where she was added today had any impact (although the placings in most of them were average or bad). I expect it to reach 700k at best tomorrow.

Views on Youtube are bad as well... Less than 300k in 12 hours. It won't reach 1 million on 1st day.
I wasn't expecting the video to explode either... It's a simple video with basically just her for 3.30 minutes... Fan-only material.

I guess most fans are still with a decade ago way of thiking and iTunes positions make us think that a song is a bigger hit than it really is... Cause streaming, so far, it's bad.
It will need to hold really well on sales during the week to be able to chart at the very low region of Hot 100.

GTFO's streaming numbers are normal for an older female artist waaaay past their commercial prime... since this won't be pushed on radio'cause it's a buzz single I expect this to be a non event in terms of streaming, the video is very boring and will not help at all either.

"I dont" and "infinity (lyric)" videos both surpassed over 1million views in 24 hours

GTFO is tracking 600k in 24 hours. Disappointing considering its #1 worldwide iTunes

Any news about US radio audience?

She needs a radio deal and pay to be on Spotify's playlists like 'Today's Top Hits'. It's unbelievable the way Spotify already put Khalid's new song on that playlist. Her streaming numbers are quite low unfortunely...

It's too early for disappointment. I think that videos are usually getting more views during the second half of the day, so 1 million is not impossible.

At least it's not this scenario with the lead single. I hope with 'With You' it will be different!!

iTunes position are meaningless and point to nothing. They haven't been good for predicting a hit for quite some time now.

Yes, but still an achievement, particularly for Mariah. It may not mean much to charts these days (if the sales dont balloon over that of others in comparison) but it does speak to momentum and headlines.

Imagine if the song suffered at the lower tiers of the chart upon initial release. The headlines that would've been put out. Whew!

Examples of iTunes related press, particularly from industry:

Among songs, Mariah Carey’s “GTFO” (Epic) sits at #2 at iTunes,Kris Wu f/Jhene Aiko’s “Freedom” (Ace Unit/Interscope) is #6, Lana Del Rey’s Mariners Apartment Complex” (Interscope) is #7 and the Dolly Parton-Sia collab "Here I Am" (RCA) is #8. Over at Apple Music, Lil Baby & Gunna’s “Drip Too Hard,” a Wednesday release from Quality Control/YSL/Motown/Capitol, is #5.

At midnight ET, Shady/Aftermath/Interscope’s Eminem surprised fans with the release of Kamikaze, his tenth studio album. And boy, does he sound recharged. Within two hours, it had flown into the iTunes Top 3.
http://hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=313209
Sweetener zoomed to #1 at iTunes upon release and “God” was essentially the only song to get an appreciable boost from the lackluster VMA show, moving to #1 on the singles side of the digital sales emporium.

The video won't succeed on YouTube. I am a Lamb and couldn't get past the first minute let alone the GP. I hope she'll be fine for WY.

Why does she never put effort on her music videos? . . . Youtube is pretty much the most viable streaming platform for veteran acts.

she had quite some good recent videos... and by recent i mean this decade. Up Out My Face was a concept video (2010). #Beautiful was OK.

YM(E) was tragic. So was I don't and now this. Infinity was OK too.

There's no point to push radio deals for an official buzz single.

Better than I expected.
#200 worldwide usually has around 600k daily streams, so we'll see today if it made the Top200.

The music video is about to reach 1 million on YouTube (well, not in 24 hours, but at least in 28... :lol: )
