    We are actually not - TV performances generally do massively impact her sales in her key markets.

    Declining sales is a rubbish excuse - in her key markets like France, the UK, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland and to an extent the US, her sales are generally much better when supported by a visible ad campaign which has TV appearances at the centre of it.

    She had a huge UK promo schedule lined up until she ended up having to reschedule her Canada shows - but this was obviously all dropped. She would’ve been a contender for a 50-60k week in the UK if she had been present and promoting a couple of times.

    I respect you Wayne, but you haven't shown a lot of reality when it comes to charts these days. Thinking she would do more than 2.5x first week sales in UK if she did TV performances is just crazy.

    You were expecting 200k+ sales in the first week in the US and when other people were writing down 150k predictions you came at them that there's no way such a low percentage of redeems is possible for her. Yet here we are at 120k.

    And declining sales is a reality, not a rubbish excuse. Celine isnot the o y example, it's literally EVERYONE.

    The drop in the US next week is going to be huge.

    Sales have decreased so it's unrealistic to expect LMBTL numbers, still tv promo works for Celine, I'm sure if she had visit UK she would have doubled up those numbers and would have helped in the upcoming weeks. There is still time, not sure how much break she has now, but I think a couple of weeks? But probably she wants to rest as well.

    Totally normal for divas like CÚline and Madonna who rely heavily on physical sales.

    I am aware that it is the norm, I just updated the thread with the chart position seeing as no one else did it.
