Spotify Australia don't support local talent.

Delta hasn't been added to the "Hot Hits Australia" playlist since "Wings" which is the reason why she hasn't done well on streaming for a while now. It's the exact same reason why "The Only High" by The Veronicas flopped.

If you want to blame anyone, blame Spotify Australia.

Yeah I would agree that most Aussie acts are getting a very rough run on Spotify. Even proven hits (like Jess Mauboy's 'Fallin') don't get much traction. That being said, I don't blame 'The Only High' on Spotify for flopping, that song just sucked (IMO of course).

Delta's 15 years into her career, so hits are going to be hard to come by at this point.

The problem is not only Spotify though. Think About You is struggling digitally as well. It has dropped from #3 to outside the Top 40 on the digital track chart. It's only #60 on iTunes atm.

Spotify does affect iTunes to an extent as listeners may decide to buy songs from iTunes based on what they hear/discover on Spotify. So the more exposure a song has on Spotify (ie through popular playlists), the more chances people will buy the song on iTunes.

It's just not an equal-level playing field at the moment.

There are several examples of songs doing well on iTunes without getting exposure on Spotify. I also highly doubt That people who are using streaming are also downloading them.

It's quite clear that the GP doesn't like the song.

I wonder if her whole album follows this sort of direction. I hope not.

Why would someone who streams on Spotify also buy at iTunes?

The song still doesn’t sound great to me. It’s definitely no Heart Hypnotic.

Don't know if it's been posted, but this has been added to the Hot Hits Australia playlist. There are 800,000 followers so hopefully this has some impact on streaming. Overall streams for the track are currently at 1,700,000.
