All of these Christmas / charity songs completely wasting everyone's time. Ariana'll still be top.
It's unreal how many people are behind the times - though i've seen some of them trying to persuade people to stream the YouTube clips.

The iTunes chart is based on sales, the Offal chart is made up to represent something which looks like a chart based on sales, when it no longer is. :roll:
Anything that users YouTube is very wrong. :evil:
I had to take down a video of a radio recording of a 70's chart show. At first the Record Companies where getting fees for the playing of the songs in the video. But all of a sudden the policy changed and YouTube muted the audio. They didn't tell me of course. With no sound it was useless. And youtube suggested "royalty free" music to replace the sound!! Highly dodgy practices of YouTube Part 10. :roll:

Sadly most people now don't even know half the records in the top 40, except the film ones! Even with streaming the "sales" are no greater than before streaming was introduced.
And which Ariana single will be top, now she has a new one to stream! :lol:

By the way what happened to the Abba single? :-?

Ava Max returns to the top spot, Ladbaby down to 21.
Only one new record in the 100 from Post Malone and Wow at 26.
Following on from the collapse of sales of X-Mass tracks, we see several returning Now duplicates, plus a few from XXXtentation and Drake.
Big drops for the Lady GaGa tracks, except the number one record, and Sam Smith, despite Watership Down being on TV has fallen massively!

Amazon seems to have more of the tracks featured on TOTP than iTunes in it's 100, but also has a couple of the new Mary Poppins songs in the 100, which are not in the iTunes 100.

Late response, I know, but I think it's some kind of chart manipulation... :o I've seen some of these charting in other countries before. Amy Monroe had several songs in the Spanish iTunes top 100 a few months ago. In Finland, it was even worse – some of these artists (Amy Monroe, Raul Minor, Jason Le...) even made it to the weekly download top 10 after taking over most of the top 100 for a couple of days!

There are several things all these artists have in common – most of the tracks are instrumentals, the track titles seem either randomly generated or in some cases are the same as some recent hits, no information on the artists can be found anywhere, they're all distributed through Records DK (Distrokid).... And none of them sound like something that would actually be popular in 2019 – the whole thing is really suspicious...
