    Unfortunately no, Finland got one as well. „Monsters“ even went Platinum But Estonia could make it as well in the long run

    ^ Hahaha, this actually made me laugh out loud now! Poor Saara

    Anyways, i have to admit the ESC effect itself had a quite moderate effect on "Monsters" and it mostly got all the success prior the success, while "La forza" only debuted on my charts during the contest, so going Gold that way is quite impressive and i think she should stay on my charts for some more weeks

    Evanescence + Lindsey Stirling? Why do I have a feeling this song will be #1 for the rest of the year? I just checked it out, though, and it's not bad. I'm not too impressed by it on the first spin, but it might be a grower.

    There are three Demi Lovato songs that stand apart from the rest for me, and I'm glad to see them all here: "Heart Attack", "Give Your Heart a Break", and "Cool for the Summer". All deserved to be chart-toppers.

    1 (NEW) Evanescence feat. Lindsey Stirling – Hi-Lo
    3 (2) Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato – Solo
    6 (RE) Demi Lovato – Tell Me You Love Me
    7 (3) Shawn Mendes feat. Khalid – Youth
    9 (4) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *G*
    11 (RE) Demi Lovato – Heart Attack *P*
    12 (RE) Demi Lovato – Cool For The Summer
    13 (9) Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin – I Like It
    15 (8) Eleni Foureira – Fuego
    18 (RE) Demi Lovato – Give Your Heart A Break
    21 (RE) Demi Lovato – Confident
    23 (18) Kylie Minogue – Golden
    24 (15) Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me
    26 (17) Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B – Girls Like You
    27 (16) Shawn Mendes – Lost In Japan
    28 (RE) Luis Fonsi feat. Demi Lovato – Échame La Culpa
    32 (28) Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
    33 (RE) Demi Lovato – Sorry Not Sorry
    34 (23) Céline Dion – Ashes
    36 (RE) Christina Aguilera feat. Demi Lovato – Fall In Line
    38 (29) Charlie Puth feat. Khelani – Done For Me
    39 (22) Passenger – Hell Or High Water
    40 (33) Waylon – Outlaw In ‘Em

Did you already check out his previous releases? I think this new one is his best by far
    I listened to Illuminate, and this new album is definitely better, but that doesn't say much because Illuminate was extremely meh.

    ^ You know, the Evanescence + Lindsey collaboration is actually already out for over a half year, as it's a song from Evanescence' latest album "Synthesis". Lindsey just wasn't credited on the album, but with the video release they also released a single edit with credits for her (finally). Due to the song being already so 'old' i'm already quite over it, so it won't be #1 for that long i'm afraid

    Glad your favorite Demi songs are on the charts right now - and i'm loving the ones you mentioned as well!

    Also nice to hear your thoughts about "Illuminate", as i felt the same

    Hey Tansike

    First of all etc.. at those stats. That's an amazing achievement, and as you know i love to follow your chart each week.

    We share a similar taste in music and i have discovered some wonderful songs here so its really deserved. <3 Here's to the next 4k replies and 200k views.

    Whilst i'm here i might as well start adding to that tally.

    1 (3) Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato – Solo

    Gosh! I didn't expect Solo to return to your #1 after seeing Lindsey Stirling dominating your top 2 last week. This is pretty much set to be #1 in the UK tomorrow and i'm so happy about this, it will be the best UK #1 of the year so far.

    2 (2) Alexander Jean feat. Lindsey Stirling – Stampede
    4 (1) Evanescence feat. Lindsey Stirling – Hi-Lo

    So i'm gonna comment on these together. I did actually give them both a listen (just didn't find the time to comment :( ). But of the two i liked the Evanescence track more so i was delighted that this ended up as your #1. As for the Alexander Jean track, i do like this and its actually quite an endearing track. I even added both songs to my list of potential future entries in my chart. Of course there's been an abundance of new music throughout the week so right now, i really haven't a clue how my next chart is gonna look.

    3 (NEW) Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande – Bed

    This is amazing, i love the exotic summer vibes in the production. It's Nicki's most radio friendly and assessable song for some time so naturally i was gonna enjoy this. Ariana's vocals on the chorus are so lush. I even prefer this more than The light is coming.

    5 (NEW) Bebe Rexha – I’m A Mess

    It seems like this is proving popular with others on UK Mix but i'm not feeling it as much. I gave it listen a couple of nights back and whilst i did like it, it didn't leave much of a lasting impression. Probably unlikely to enter my chart this Saturday but who knows, it could continue growing on me and become a future hit.

    6 (NEW) Troye Sivan feat. Ariana Grande – Dance To This

    Ahh i thought this was gonna be your new #1 as you seemed to be a lot more positive about this track than i am. As much as i do enjoy Dance to this, it still pales in comparison to both My, my, my and Bloom.

    7 (NEW) Kygo & Imagine Dragons – Born To Be Yours

    This is so much more instant than the Miguel track Remind me to forget which took about two months before it finally entered my chart. This is definitely entering my chart this coming weekend and potentially higher than in your chart, but i've still got one more day yet which could change how my final chart looks. It's an unpredictable week for sure.

    10 (5) Namika – Je ne parle pas français

    I also want to thank you for this track which i checked out last week. It appears to be doing well in Germany so i'm guessing it's also a hit in Switzerland? I also listened to the remix version with Black M too. I'm not familiar with either artist but this could become a hit in my chart in the coming weeks if it keeps my interest levels high.

    13 (NEW) 5 Seconds Of Summer – Youngblood

    Wow, so this become their first ever chart hit here? Youngblood is officially the guys' highest charting single in my chart now having hit a peak of #12. I think it's incredibly impressive that they have matured and developed beyond their teenybopper fanbase and have got a song that is appealing to a wider demographic audience. Something i would never have expected to see when they started out.

    25 (NEW) Pitbull feat. Leona Lewis – Amore

    Well this ended up being an anti climax. When i read about this i was hoping that Pitbull & Leona would deliver a really upbeat fun party track...but instead they gave us this forgettable non event of a track instead. :-? :( Needless to say, this won't be entering my chart.

    Best of the rest:

    11 (10) Selena Gomez – Back To You
    12 (9) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *G*
    16 (7) Shawn Mendes feat. Khalid – Youth

    23 (28) Luis Fonsi feat. Demi Lovato – Échame La Culpa
    24 (15) Eleni Foureira – Fuego
    26 (11) Demi Lovato – Heart Attack *P*
    31 (20) Kygo & Miguel – Remind Me To Forget
    32 (23) Kylie Minogue – Golden
    33 (21) Demi Lovato – Confident
    34 (31) Madame Monsieur – Mercy
    38 (26) Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B – Girls Like You
    40 (19) Lily Allen – Lost My Mind

    Gosh! I didn't expect Solo to return to your #1 after seeing Lindsey Stirling dominating your top 2 last week. This is pretty much set to be #1 in the UK tomorrow and i'm so happy about this, it will be the best UK #1 of the year so far.
    Hey Jake

    Well, “Solo” has been stuck in my head again lately and I kept on playing it over and over again, while the two Lindsey featured track didn’t have such a replay value for me last week. I’m also glad that this also gets the chance to top the UK charts, definitely well deserved!

    So i'm gonna comment on these together. I did actually give them both a listen (just didn't find the time to comment :( ). But of the two i liked the Evanescence track more so i was delighted that this ended up as your #1. As for the Alexander Jean track, i do like this and its actually quite an endearing track. I even added both songs to my list of potential future entries in my chart. Of course there's been an abundance of new music throughout the week so right now, i really haven't a clue how my next chart is gonna look.
    First of all, YAY that you checked them out <3 Second… not surprised you prefer “Hi-Lo”, as it’s Evanescence after all. Unfortunately, the track itself was already released last year so I’m already a little bit ‘over it’ by now which is why it already fell 1-4.
    That’s amazing news for both of the songs. Sooooo I really cross my fingers that one may appear on your charts sooner or later

    This is amazing, i love the exotic summer vibes in the production. It's Nicki's most radio friendly and assessable song for some time so naturally i was gonna enjoy this. Ariana's vocals on the chorus are so lush. I even prefer this more than The light is coming.
    Yes! I agree with you that it’s Nicki’s best in years and I hope this turns into a nice hit for them both. It’s still too early for me to tell if I enjoy this more than “The Light Is Coming” but that one will definitely make a great debut on my charts next week as well

    It seems like this is proving popular with others on UK Mix but i'm not feeling it as much. I gave it listen a couple of nights back and whilst i did like it, it didn't leave much of a lasting impression. Probably unlikely to enter my chart this Saturday but who knows, it could continue growing on me and become a future hit.
    Aww… I think this is a strong pop record and I’ve been quite a fan for everything Bebe has released lately, so I’m not surprised at how much I’m liking this. It’s just a fun song with a nice sing-a-long chorus.

    Ahh i thought this was gonna be your new #1 as you seemed to be a lot more positive about this track than i am. As much as i do enjoy Dance to this, it still pales in comparison to both My, my, my and Bloom.
    #1?! Well, yeah, I was positive about this, but it’s still far from being an amazing song or so. It’s very good, of course, and especially compared to Troye’s previous tracks it made a much better impression on me, also because I never got much into “Bloom”, “The Other Side” or “My My My”. It’s also the very first time Troye hits my Top10

    This is so much more instant than the Miguel track Remind me to forget which took about two months before it finally entered my chart. This is definitely entering my chart this coming weekend and potentially higher than in your chart, but i've still got one more day yet which could change how my final chart looks. It's an unpredictable week for sure.
    We felt the same there! “Remind Me To Forget” also took ages to finally grow on me but now I think it’s quite good. I’m already excited to see how this will do on your charts – there’s currently a lot of competition out, and I’m loving that!

    I also want to thank you for this track which i checked out last week. It appears to be doing well in Germany so i'm guessing it's also a hit in Switzerland? I also listened to the remix version with Black M too. I'm not familiar with either artist but this could become a hit in my chart in the coming weeks if it keeps my interest levels high.
    Yay! Glad you checked this out & enjoyed it! As you say, it’s quite big in Germany (#2 last week, has a chance to reach #1 this or next week), but only just started in Switzerland, as it’s charting for only two weeks so far (but it rose 83-69 this week). It’s likely to get much bigger than it is right now over here, as it’s rising a lot on iTunes and Spotify, which is well deserved. I don’t know if you checked out “Lieblingsmensch” in 2015, which was her breakthrough hit (#1 in Germany with 43 weeks on the chart, #2 peak in Austria and #14 in Switzerland). It’s quite good as well and I’m so happy that she got another hit with “Je ne parle pas français”

    Wow, so this become their first ever chart hit here? Youngblood is officially the guys' highest charting single in my chart now having hit a peak of #12. I think it's incredibly impressive that they have matured and developed beyond their teenybopper fanbase and have got a song that is appealing to a wider demographic audience. Something i would never have expected to see when they started out.
    Yes! Actually, I have to admit I never checked out “She Looks So Perfect”, at least from what I remember, maybe I simply forgot it! I completely agree, and while it’s a surprise they got a hit these days, it’s absolutely deserved as “Youngblood” is really good.

    Well this ended up being an anti climax. When i read about this i was hoping that Pitbull & Leona would deliver a really upbeat fun party track...but instead they gave us this forgettable non event of a track instead. :-? :( Needless to say, this won't be entering my chart.
    Poor them! I think it’s not even that bad but it will most likely be a one-week-run on my charts…

    Also, I LOVE (!!!) your new avatar so much!
    Aw - you're totally welcome, Tansike You've got such a great personality/attitude that always makes it fun to interact with you on here. It helps that we share some non-music interests (like Pokémon), and your chart is a really perfect mix of songs that I already know/like, combined with songs I'd probably never come across otherwise that make me step outside my usual musical comfort zone/bubble. ;)

    Ha, glad you approve of Eevee <3 It's funny, because I'll probably end up buying the Pikachu version of Let's Go (since you can't evolve your starter, like in Yellow, and I'd rather work with an un-evolvable Pikachu than an un-evolvable Eevee) - but so much of Eevee's art is so damn cute, I'd rather use that for an avatar.

    No, I still have them… but I don’t know for how long, cause they’re just taking space away to be honest, and my memories to them aren’t as important as the ones to my comics or card collection. So I definitely made a wrong decision in what I kept and what I gave away. Haha, I didn’t even mean that, it’s just that we do some other stuff, watch a movie together or whatever, instead of me playing Pokémon. Sometimes he’s playing a game and I simply watch him play that game instead of playing one by myself. Aw, well, I’m okay with you asking this every week, unfortunately it’s still the same as of now. I already was sooo near to play again yesterday. Hopefully today. Somehow I miss it, but somehow it’s still not as important as some other stuff to me at the moment. Also, I have to admit that I’ve started to get interested in playing one of the newer ones again instead of Yellow… so let’s see how I’ll decide in the end.

    Sounds interesting! Since they released Red/Blue on the Virtual Console not too long ago, it makes sense for them do change some stuff from the original series. Have you spotted something else worth a mention by watching that trailer several times?
    Ah, yeah, I definitely wouldn't want to have to deal with sending an actual check through the mail in order to pay those!

    It's a similar situation for me, where I still had a bunch of old stuffed animals/Beanie Babies lying around my old house for years, but most of the stuff that I wish I'd kept now was given away/lost over the years. Which games has your man been hooked on lately? Any chance he'll want to play Let's Go with you once it's out...?

    HmMmMm, I don't think I spotted anything TOO noteworthy in that first trailer (mostly just trying to recognize the setting/cities in each shot), but someone noticed in the E3 gameplay footage that there's wild Bulbasaur in Viridian Forest/Vertania Wald, which is a pretty cool addition!

Anyways, it’s nice to hear you checked the album out now, but kinda sad that it left you pretty cold, so I really hope some tracks will grow on you. It’s interesting how you say it’s a slow album, as it didn’t make such an impression on me. “Nervous”, “Particular Taste”, “Queen” and “Mutual” are all more uptempo and belong to my faves, but also some slower songs like “Like To Be You” or “Fallin’ All In You” are really good. Will be interesting to see how things turn out after a few more spins
    Well...I guess most of the album seems slow compared to something like "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back," which had been my favorite of his (and still is, I guess). A few songs on Shawn Mendes did manage to stand out as I kept re-visiting the album last week, though, and "Nervous" was definitely one of them (along with "Fallin' All In You" and "Why").

    Overall, Shawn Mendes still doesn't do as much for me as some of the other albums that I've checked out this year, but there's enough worthwhile (non-single) tracks to discover that I'm glad I gave it a chance in full.

    At long last! I think I saw somewhere that you weren't too impressed with it, though?

Her last proper rock album came out in 2016 and unfortunately I didn’t go to her concert back then. The thing is, until last Autumn, I never attended a concert where you couldn’t get seating tickets, as I used to have a chronic iron deficiency, so I never wanted to try it out as I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to stand there between all the people for so long, and would need to sit down which wouldn’t be possible if you’re in the middle of a crowd, and Tarja isn’t big enough to visit venues with seating places. So I ‘skipped’ her, except the Christmas concert, as that one was only seated and the venue was a theater (for obvious reasons, I think). But now I know that standing for two hours or so is actually possible, and she’ll release a new rock album in 2019, so I will most likely go and see her on her next tour, as she usually always visits Switzerland on her tour (it’s still one of her most successful countries besides Germany, Finland and part of South America).
    Ah, I never knew that you had to deal with that deficiency (and still do?), so thanks for sharing that **Hug** What kind of treatment was needed for that? I’m glad that you've managed to make it through standing-room-only concerts more recently! #survivor

    Maybe we'll be more in agreement on "Focus" or "No Angel" ;) **Fingers crossed**

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    Yeah, I thought "Wait" had been a proper single everywhere, but it flopped HARD overseas (No. 79 in the UK, No. 91 in Australia, etc.), so maybe it was only really pushed/promoted n the US? :-? Either way, "Girls Like You" has definitely gotten them back on track, charts-wise! Seems to be their biggest hit since..."Sugar," I guess?

    It's one of Golden's highlights for me (possibly my absolute favorite track across the whole album)...but you're not the first person I've seen who thinks the first two singles are actually some of the weakest moments on the album. :x

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

Yes, she’s doing a co-headlining tour with Evanescence, but unfortunately it’s just for the US so far. Evanescence already toured Europe earlier this year and announced this co-headlining tour shortly before I saw them. Seeing both of them live together would be brilliant, so fingers crossed they’re expanding the tour with European dates as well.
    **Fingers and toes crossed** for ya!

As for GYHAB… its chart performance looks worse than it is. In fact, with the upcoming charts from Thursday already included (it’s already pretty much done as I’ll be busy tomorrow), it’s tied with another song as her fourth most successful song on my charts! Being in the Top20 for so long with just a #9 peak is actually quite a rare feat.
    Ooh...props to Demi for defying your expectations! I don't think I've ever watched a live performance of hers, but it's good to know that she's capable of truly entertaining. Is she a surprisingly good dancer? Bummer about "Really Don't Care," since I'm a big fan of that one, but I get what you mean about it not being too shocking that she chose to skip those (granted, "Skyscraper" was basically her "comeback" hit...)

    I'd forgotten about "Cycles" when I was writing that comment last week but I'm not sure if that was ever actually promoted anywhere, or was just rumored to be a single at one point? It never got a video, and it's not listed as a single on Wikipedia...

    • I'm lovin' this surprise rebound for "Solo" "Hi-Lo" is likable enough, but I'm definitely partial toward "Solo."
    • I know you love Ari, but I still wasn't expecting such a strong start for "Dance To This" (maybe because I'm pretty underwhelmed by it myself) I much preferred "My My My!" and "Bloom," but I guess this one has some...subtle/mellow/chill charms to it.
    • Exciting to see 5SOS earn their first-ever entry with "Youngblood."
    • Solid Top 20 start for "Nervous." Since it got a video, hopefully he'll properly push it as his next single. It'd easily be my favorite single from this era so far.
    • Impressive for Demi to earn two Gold certs in the same week (especially since "Give Your Heart A Break" "only" peaked at No. 9).

    Yet another chart that's one-of-a-kind, Tansike!

    Chart Run: *6*- / 1w
    12 (9) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *G*
    Ariana seems to be slaying everyone's charts at the moment!!! I mentioned in another thread that her recent releases are still needing to grow on me. They just aren't capturing me like nearly every other release of hers has had. Even Everyday got me more excited.

    20 (12) Demi Lovato – Cool For The Summer
    26 (11) Demi Lovato – Heart Attack *P*
    Loved the Demi comeback a bit!!! Cool For The Summer is yet to sound dated at all for me.

    32 (23) Kylie Minogue – Golden
    Hold on Kylie . I'm glad to see that Golden has managed to make a small impact with you Tansike. Your charts usually don't get rocked too much by a Kylie release, so this warms my heart! <3

    Is it really confirmed you can’t evolve them? Don’t see the point of picking Eevee then So I’m definitely going with the Pikachu version as well. But yeah, the artwork is cute and overall it’s still one of the most iconic Pokémon to me.

    I have absolutely no idea! He’s playing some games on his iPhone lately, and these are quite boring to me. There are two games he’s playing all the time, something like a shooter game and something with bubbles. As for Let’s Go, I’m not sure about that. Maybe he’ll try it out as he also tried Pokémon Tekken out due to me and he really enjoyed it.

    Oh wow, this would be brilliant They should have added something like this in the main series as well, especially in the latter games. How cool would it be if some old starter Pokémon would be able to catch in a normal playthrough!

    Ah okay, makes sense. Also, these are some nice choices for your favorite songs, especially “Fallin’ All In You”.

    Very happy to hear you’re not too ‘mad’ that you checked this out and that it wasn’t for nothing. And who knows, maybe one track will grow on you even more?

    Yes. I mean, it’s a simple boxing video, I expected a lot more for a song which has been a fan favorite since day one and Halsey AND Lauren knew about that. Plus, it would have been a great opportunity to do a LGBT video, as the song is also about that and they’re both bi from what I remember. Would have been cool, especially now that it’s pride month. The video even had a negative effect on me – with a great one it could have been an easy chart topper, but with lots of other new entries it will be a tough battle now. What are your thoughts about the video?

    Still do, but it’s better these days than it was as a child. It was actually quite simple, eating more meat and stuff with enough protein, plus there were some other possible treatments but we never followed that (with we I mean me and my mother, as it was a thing in my childhood), because of lack of money. Anyways, thank you! <3

    I think so. Okay, to be fair, they’re pretty much an US radio darling, everything gets a lot of airplay there, so it’s ‘easier’ for them to get a hit in the US while it really has to click with the people in other countries to become a hit. I guess you mean worldwide? I think “Don’t Wanna Know” and “What Lovers Do” were actually quite big hits in many countries as well…
    And now that I think about it, it’s kinda crazy how they became such a force on the singles charts, when people thought they’d be over in 2010! “Moves Like Jagger” was an amazing career move for them!

    Oh! Well, don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad at all, it’s just… there. But to be fair I’ve never been a huge Kylie fan so it was expected to be not blown away by her stuff.

    Really? Never? Not even one of the award show performances? But yeah, she’s more entertaining than I thought and danced better than expected (I thought she wouldn’t do dance routines as I’ve never seen that from her and she’s more like a singer-singer than a dancer-singer).
    Sometimes I wish a few artist would adjust their setlist to the countries they visit. Demi’s a good example, as she never visited Switzerland before that tour so it would have been nice to hear some older songs as well.

    Well so it looks like you’re not the only one who forgot about it if it’s not even on Wikipedia
    It also looks like “Bitches” will do nothing, which is quite sad. I hope Tove Lo will come back harder again with her next album.

    • Exciting to see 5SOS earn their first-ever entry with "Youngblood."
    • Solid Top 20 start for "Nervous." Since it got a video, hopefully he'll properly push it as his next single. It'd easily be my favorite single from this era so far.
    • Impressive for Demi to earn two Gold certs in the same week (especially since "Give Your Heart A Break" "only" peaked at No. 9).

    Yet another chart that's one-of-a-kind, Tansike!
    When compiling my charts for last week I realized “Solo” has been stuck in my head for the whole week and I’ve replayed it over and over again so it was even an obvious #1 for me, despite all the new entries which came out.

    It’s interesting how most people who enjoyed the first songs of Troye’s upcoming album aren’t that impressed by “Dance To This”, while it’s the complete opposite for me! Anyways, “Dance To This” also isn’t a masterpiece and I don’t see this being high up on my charts for too long at the moment, despite the Ari involvement.

    Well deserved – “Youngblood” is good!

    I’m quite confused with Shawn’s era so far. I thought they’d push “Youth”, but instead of releasing an official video for that one they kinda surprise-released one for “Nervous”. It’s a good track but somehow it gets lost in the crowd of other new entries for me.

    True! The concert effect really strengthen up her discography – there are some other good news this week as well

    Thank you so much

    Ariana seems to be slaying everyone's charts at the moment!!! I mentioned in another thread that her recent releases are still needing to grow on me. They just aren't capturing me like nearly every other release of hers has had. Even Everyday got me more excited.
    Aww. I think it’s cool how everyone has their own tastes and a few people think she’s as strong as never before while some people can’t get into her new stuff. I think she has an amazing 2018 so far and I’m also loving the new “The Light Is Coming”. Fingers crossed the new stuff will grow on you more, maybe it will with the album release?

    Loved the Demi comeback a bit!!! Cool For The Summer is yet to sound dated at all for me.
    I agree! I don’t get why I got over it so quickly back then when it’s actually one of her strongest singles for me nowadays

    With all the new releases which are out at the moment this was most likely her last week on my charts But yeah, she’s usually not a big force on my charts and “Golden” is her first album to have three entries on my charts, so she’s at least getting stronger here with each release

    ^ Yeah... she was one of the artists who only had #1s in her discography and now this is already her second song within less than a year which most likely won't top my charts... but to be fair, it was a very competitive week, it's 'just' a live release and it's a song i never fully appreciated.

    I think she's slowly releasing a bit too much. There are so many random releases from her and sometimes the less would be more instead of more is more...

    I listened to your top three songs, and "The Light Is Coming" definitely sounds better now than it did when I first played it. Its chorus is very electronic, almost video-game-esque. "Strangers" I always thought was decent, and "Undertaker" is okay, too.

    I actually listened to 5 Seconds of Summer's new album last week, and it wasn't bad. They're not One Direction, but their music is pretty palatable still. "Youngblood" is certainly a highlight from the new LP.

    Expected debuts for "Ocean" and "Growing Pains". I think you mentioned that you enjoyed the former considerably more than the latter, but, hopefully, both will grow on you. I think "Growing Pains" is indeed a bit...basic, but I like how she references her past era, and I think the lyrics are fairly relatable for most young adults.

Never did i expect this topic to be that popular, because when i started doing my own charts around twelve years ago i never thought someone would be interested in it, but i'm so thankful there are so many people who keep on checking out this topic - so thanks a lot <3 <3 <3
    Congrats, Tansike! It's quite funny that your chart has reached this milestone around this time because just this week "Crystallize" tied "Diamonds" as my joint most-played track since 2012, and were it not for your charts that would never have happened. I look forward to six more years of quality charts, with detailed synopses and thorough chart-runs. Bring on six more years of symphonic metal interspersed with soothing electronic instrumentals, the best of dance and pop, and sprinklings of country and folk music.

Due to the song being already so 'old' i'm already quite over it, so it won't be #1 for that long i'm afraid
    Ah, noted!

    Well, when your music is at that level, there's lots of room for improvement, and he does seem to be slowly improving, which is good.

    Very glad to hear "The Light Is Coming" sounds better now! For me it was once again love at first listen, even though I think this may change soon and it most definitely won't have the same longevity with me like "No Tears Left To Cry" had. Very happy to hear you checked the other two out and enjoyed them a bit.

    I feel the same! "Youngblood" is the obvious highlight, but the full album is better than I expected.

    Yes, I mentioned that over in your topic. I'm not sure if both will grow on me more and for now it's likely to see them not getting new peaks on my charts. Alessia still has a chance to do so once the album drops though.

    Thank you! Woah, this is really huge! I've seen Lindsey having to re-entries a few days ago (I think on Friday?) with "Crystallize" and "The Arena", and it's obviously always so nice to see her re-appearing on your list. But I never imagined her to be tied with Rihanna's "Diamonds" as your most played track since 2012 - this is really huge! That's what I love about this section here, sometimes one discovers a track which ends up as a big hit even though one probably would've never heard it by themselves. Thanks for the nice words <3

    True!

    It's 1st of July which means half of the year 2018 is already over. So it's time to take a look at some of the most successful & most played songs and albums so far!

    I won't give away too many details though, but still wanted to do a short Update with what was hot this year so far.

    Mid-Year Report 2018: Singles



    With 254 plays, "Across The Sea" by Leaves' Eyes is the most played song of the year so far. But is it also the most successful one? Going by plays, it's followed by "No Tears Left To Cry" by Ariana Grande (237 plays), "Monsters" by Saara Aalto (232 plays) and "Night 13" (218 plays) & "The Space Between" (164 plays), both by Auri. All these songs are currently in the Top15 of the Year-To-Date Charts. Auri aren't the only artist with more than one song so high up on that list, as My Indigo owns two entries as well with "Out Of The Darkness" and "Crash And Burn". Anne-Marie & Marshmello ("Friends"), Elina Nechayeva ("La forza"), Imagine Dragons ("Whatever It Takes"), Nina Kraljic ("Lay You Down") and Noah Cyrus ("Again") all own an entry in the Top10.

    Also worth a mention: With 148 plays, "Solo" by Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato is already the sixth most played song of the year and is likely to enter the Top10 of the Year-To-Date Charts very soon as well, despite being out for only a few weeks.
    Mid-Year Report 2018: Albums



    The symphonic metal band Leaves' Eyes also owns the most played album of the year so far, as their "Sign Of The Dragonhead" has 1,001 plays to date, being the first and only to cross the magical 1,000 plays this year. Unsurprisingly, it is followed by My Indigo's "My Indigo" (974 plays) and Auri's "Auri" (797 plays), with The Dark Element's "The Dark Element" coming fourth with 601 plays and Anne-Marie's "Speak Your Mind" coming fifth with 532 plays. These five albums can all be found in the Top10 of the Year-To-Date Charts as well. Other artists in the current Top10: Brandi Carlile ("By The Way, I Forgive You"), Faun ("XV - Best Of"), Halsey ("hopeless fountain kingdom"), Rachel Platten ("Waves") and some various artists (Eurovision Song Contest 2018).
    Mid-Year Report 2018: Album Tracks



    "Sign Of The Dragonhead" may have the most plays for an album, but the album track with most plays doesn't belong to Leaves' Eyes but My Indigo with "Black Velvet Sun" (117 plays), closely followed by "Indian Summer" (109 plays) from the same album, with "Jomsborg" (94 plays) coming third - the first album track by the aforementioned most played album. Yet another My Indigo track comes fourth with "Star Crossed Lovers" (87 plays) while Rachel Platten's "Collide" is the fifth most played album track of the year so far with 82 plays.

    Supposedly it was mentioned during a question-and-answer session with the developers of Let's Go!, when it was also confirmed that only Gen I Pokémon will be included in these games (plus some Alolan forms) :x I'm still optimistic/curious about the games overall, but keeping out ALL cross-Gen evolutions is a really disappointing choice, since it makes a lot of Pokémon feel "incomplete" (like Golbat being permanently stuck as fairly-useless Golbat, when it's actually had a cool, useful evolution for almost 20 years now...)

Maybe he’ll try it out as he also tried Pokémon Tekken out due to me and he really enjoyed it.
    Ha, I feel you there! My bf jumps between different games/apps (that don't interest me) so often that they all blur together, or I just instantly forget what they're called I'd forgotten/didn't know that you and your partner had played Pokkén together! Were you pretty into it for a while? Who was your favorite fighter to use? I only tried the free demo for a very brief while, since I'm awful at traditional fighting games like that one It did look pretty gorgeous though - especially the Pokémon themselves!

    Very happy to hear you’re not too ‘mad’ that you checked this out and that it wasn’t for nothing. And who knows, maybe one track will grow on you even more?
    Ha, yeah, Ed's influence on that track is pretty apparent (Shawn even sounds like he's doing an Ed impression during some parts) - but that combo really works! It's the perfect example of what Ed can be doing while he gives the world a break from releasing his own material.

    I'm definitely not mad at all! This is why streaming services are so appealing: we can check out full albums so easily without really "wasting" money if we come away from them feeling fairly unimpressed/unconvinced.

Plus, it would have been a great opportunity to do a LGBT video, as the song is also about that and they’re both bi from what I remember. Would have been cool, especially now that it’s pride month. The video even had a negative effect on me – with a great one it could have been an easy chart topper, but with lots of other new entries it will be a tough battle now. What are your thoughts about the video?
    Boxing is just such a gross sport, it's always been hard for me to watch People clobbering each other in the face until they're a disfigured mess. (Even though I know all the bruises, cuts, and blood are fake in this case.)

    I didn't realize the "Strangers" vid was disappointing enough to actually hurt the song for you, though So with a more interesting, on-theme video, it probably would've returned at No. 1?

Anyways, thank you! <3
    <3 Do you still have to maintain a pretty protein-heavy diet now in order to keep the symptoms away? Steak for dinner every day, basically? So manly! ;)

    ...and now that I've heard them both, I'm even more curious to see where they land on your next chart! I won't say exactly how I feel about them just yet, but I'm WAY more hooked on one than the other...

I guess you mean worldwide? I think “Don’t Wanna Know” and “What Lovers Do” were actually quite big hits in many countries as well…

    And now that I think about it, it’s kinda crazy how they became such a force on the singles charts, when people thought they’d be over in 2010! “Moves Like Jagger” was an amazing career move for them!
    Ha, SO true about them being radio darlings here in the US Even "Cold" and "Wait" went Top 10 on Billboard's Radio Songs chart. Yeah, I think DWK was even bigger than WLD in some places (when it definitely should've been the other way around, IMO). ;)

    M5's longevity is seriously impressive, especially considering how long they've ridden the "second wind" they got after "Moves Like Jagger." "Girls Like You" is shaping up to be a Top 10 (or even Top 5) hit in a bunch of places right now, yet back in 2010 it was looking like their time was up...

    Sometimes I wish a few artist would adjust their setlist to the countries they visit. Demi’s a good example, as she never visited Switzerland before that tour so it would have been nice to hear some older songs as well.
    Ha, maybe I was too quick to say "never"...but none that I can call to mind now, anyway Granted, I don't watch awards shows too often. I was thinking the exact same thing about her not being known as a dancer, so I can totally see why you were surprised to discover that she can actually pull off some tricky routines! I would've been too Shame on us for under-estimating her, I guess...?

    **Nod** That would make perfect sense (especially since an act's biggest hits/signature songs can really vary from country to country too).

    Yeah, it feels like Blue Lips was treated more like a mixtape than a proper studio album release :-? Did it ever even get a physical release, or is it still digital-only? With only two proper singles (released nine months apart...) #mess #justicefortove

    I wonder if messier/confusing eras like this are becoming the norm in the streaming era, with artists doing bits of promo for a bunch of different songs (a proper video for one, a lyric video for another, live performances for another, etc.) instead of focusing on promoting just one song at a time. I do prefer/miss more organized album campaigns, but I guess getting exposure for as many songs as possible might be more effective for getting people to take an interest (and buy concert tickets).

    • It's always a treat to see Ari earn another No. 1, but I've got mixed feelings about "The Light Is Coming" as a song. There's definitely some catchy elements to it, but that repeating quote in the background does get pretty distracting. I totally support her trying to include some sort of political message/statement in her music, but I don't get exactly what message she's trying to send with that particular soundbite (or if it really needed to keep looping throughout the entire song in order to make her point). Overall, it's an interesting, unexpected offering, for sure.
    • Would a more satisfying video have been enough for Halsey to block Ari? Now we'll never know...
    • I'm diggin' the little rebound for "Back To You" back into your Top 10!
    • I wasn't in a big rush to check out "Sober," since the Tell Me You Love Me era hasn't been doing a whole lot for me...but this track does have a pretty powerful emotional punch to it. It's raw, honest - and you definitely come away from it feeling for her.
    • Leaves' Eyes and My Indigo have clearly been the stand-outs of 2018 so far! Glad to see that Ari's not too far behind in terms of overall song plays, though. Also: if you're doing an update of "what was hot this year," you obviously should've included a selfie (or two)... ;)

    Yet another illuminating chart, Tansike!
