    Maybe you're right... To me, the whole 'Better' release seemed a bit rushed for whatever reason. It was the same with 'Wild & Free' during the last era: It was foreseeable that there would be a sequel for 'Fack ju Göhte' and she could've recorded the track during the normal recording sessions, put it on the album and release it as 'normal' 2nd single. Lena's team clearly isn't able to plan a proper era with a length of 1.5 years in advance and instead decide overnight, which is not very professional. I don't see 'Better' reaching the top 10 and am not even sure about top 20, so they might've hoped for more to back up the re-release as the previous two singles also couldn't make the top 20. We'll see...

    Better on iTunes
    #9 Austria (-1)
    #10 Germany (+1)
    #44 Germany (+26)
    #68 Switzerland (-20)

    on Spotify
    #28 Austria (=)
    #29 Germany (=)
    #138 Switzerland (+9)

    on Apple Music
    #21 Germany (+2)
    #27 Austria (+3)
    #209 Switzerland (+17)

    They released an acoustic version of "Better", that's why there are currently two versions on the German iTunes chart.

    But I don't think we can compare these stats.

    In a rap dominated chart like Spotify I feel that she's such a strong contender. She's basically the #1 female and she's doing that with ENGLISH.

    When it comes to German females in general there's Sarah Connor and LEA, and it's not like they are outpeaking her massively. She had more hits than LEA and bottom line is also a bit stronger than Sarah, single-wise.

    You misunderstood my point I think. I already got that she's doing really well considering everything (female pop singer singing in English) and I already said many times before in this topic that it's incredible how well she's doing in today's market, BUT, compared to how her songs are doing on Radio, iTunes, often times also on Apple Music and her popularity overall, her Spotify positions are below all that and that's what's holding her back from getting better chart peaks. I didn't compare them to others in a way of saying she should be higher, I said she's just lower on Spotify than on the other platforms.

    We are definitely on the same page

    I just think that saying her streaming is weak, well I guess I’d call that different but we both are definitely saying the same.

    I have read comments about her streaming not being that well on others forums as well and I guess I have a different view on it. Lena is collecting longevity streams in those 30-50 chart areas and ... I personally feel like the culture needs to change in order to have better peaks again!

    But who knows - the journey for Better isn’t over yet

    Although she has lower single peaks than with Crystal Sky, I feel like her singles this era will be remembered better.

    ^ Ok, I got you now as well

    Her streaming is actually really good considering the circumstances. And as you say, she's doing really well overall and even though she doesn't get a high peak anymore (at least for now, I think "Better" may get a Top20 peak at least) her songs show great longevity, while many of her high peaking singles didn't do that. I also think "Don't Lie To Me" and "Thank You" will easily end up with a certification, maybe "Thank You" as well so that would be great.

    After all, this era has already been a fantastic success for her and the album also may end up with Gold (fingers crossed her label cares to certify her releases).

    #85 Switzerland (-19)
    #86 Austria (-20)

    New peak on Austrian Spotify and it also reached a new peak on their iTunes chart yesterday (#6). This is looking very promising and the acoustic version is also doing very nice. Probably new peaks on the official charts in Austria and Germany this week!

    German Midweek Charts

    17 (16) Better

    Great hold - but I think #15 on the official charts is its final peak, as it has started to fall everywhere (iTunes, AM, Spotify)

    Austrian Singles Charts

    17 (25) 10 Better *new peak*

    "Better" becomes Lena's highest peaking chart entry in Austria since "Stardust" peaked at #14 back in 2012! It's also her third highest peaking single ever, as only "Satellite" peaked higher than those two (#2).
    In addition to that, "Better" is also her longest charting single since "Wild & Free" (30 weeks, 2015-2016) and currently her fifth longest charting single ever in Austria.

    98 (94) 3 Better

    With three weeks, "Better" already ties "Bee" and "If I Wasn't Your Daughter" as Lena's second longest charting single in Switzerland!

    German Midweek Charts

    25 (20) Better

    It definitely has peaked - what's a little bit unlucky considering the re-release is coming in three weeks. But it did a fantastic job so far and it definitely should have some longevity, hopefully 20+ on the charts in total.

    Will be interesting to see if she releases another single from the re-release.
