    Ah, thank you. Well, it’s interesting they’re only going with Gen 1 Pokémon but still add some Alolan forms. But yes, if they add Alolan forms they could add some cross-Gen evolutions as well, wouldn’t make a big difference IMO.

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!
    I’m glad I’m not the only one who has a bf who does that Well, he was MUCH more into it than me, to my own surprise! But no, it held on for like three weeks or so? So not that long. I basically always picked Decidueye and was quite good at fighting, but as I said my partner was even more into it and he was even better, so when we played against each other he used to win all the time after a while, which made it not interesting anymore. I mean, how is it possible to lose against someone who isn’t into Pokémon at all? Not really motivating

    Short update to my Yellow playthrough, if you’re still interested: I finally picked it up again. The last time I played it was when I beat Sabrina, so this week I finally went back to Fuchsia City, picked up Strength and Surf (didn’t do that previously), arrived at Cinnabar Island and started to explore the Pokémon Mansion. So nothing big, but all of this already took me more time than expected. I forgot how annoying the Pokémon Mansion was – it used to be the most annoying thing in Red/Blue for me back in the days and I think it still is

    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.
    So true! Actually, you’re mentioning something which bothers me a bit when it comes to Shawn’s album, or even his music in general: We don’t really know who he is. He’s often sounding like some other artists. There are also songs written by Ryan Tedder or Julia Michaels which sound typical for them.

    True! That’s why I’m loving streaming so much, despite being completely against it at first…

    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?
    Haha yeah… boxing is very popular over here and I already watched a few battles on the TV, but I never really understood the hype about it. There are so many breaks in between and I feel not much happens except them beating up each other. Why would one do that?

    Yes, it was, sadly. There was so much potential in this song and they kinda wasted it on a basic video. Yes, with a better video she could have been #1 on my charts, the competition wasn’t even that strong and you know how much I love the song, so the chances were there.

    Yes, but I rarely do it I mean, first of all meat is sooo expensive over here, and second, I’m often just getting something which is done fast and I can get and eat, instead of cooking first and then eat. Me and nutrition are a strange combination anyway since I moved out eight years ago

    Interesting – I’m also excited to see how they will do on your charts. Both are quite similarly strong to me so far and I can already reveal that both will have back-to-back debuts on my charts tomorrow

    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...
    Oh, I already forgot about “Cold” But yeah, everything they release becomes a raio hit in the US Agree about WLD/DWK, but DWK was like the first track of a new era, wasn’t it? That’s probably why it was more successful in a few places than WLD. Also, Kendrick is more known than SZA, which could have played a role as well when it comes to the songs success.

    True! The ‘second wind’ is already lasting as long as the ‘first wind’ – they debuted in 2004 and MLJ came out in 2011
    Speaking of “Girls Like You”, I don't remember seeing Cardi B on your charts, so I guess you’re not really into her? I love how she just got her second #1 in the US with “I Like It” as the first female rapper ever to get two #1s, and “Girls Like You” could be her third soon.

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).
    Poor Demi. I’m not sure what would have been better, not being interested in watching her performance or having watched one or more but don’t remember it at all
    Anyways, yeah, up to this point I thought she was a basic live performer, like, just standing there, doing her thing, having great vocals but nothing more or exciting. So my interest in watching her performances wasn’t that big, which is also why I was impressed at how well she did on the concert with staging, performing and delivering a great show.

    I think it’s still a digital-only release, so yeah, they didn’t treat it that well after all. Fingers crossed her next release will be handled properly again!

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).
    Good point, I think this may actually be the case. Especially ‘normal’ album campaigns aren’t as important as they used to be, once the album drops you have to be much more lucky to get another hit from that album, as new singles usually don’t get added on a ‘New Music Friday’ playlist on Spotify etc.
    That’s why I loved Dua Lipa’s era so much, like, it already looked like it’s over as she released lots of singles before the album came out, then the album dropped and had some nice starts everywhere but fell down rather quickly… and out of a sudden, “New Rules” became a surprise hit, the album rose again… and the rest is history!

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!
    I’m surprised… you’re not the first one noting that background sound in a negative way, but I have to admit it doesn’t bother me at all when listening to “The Light Is Coming”. I’m glad you’re not completely turned off by it though, as I think it’s a very catchy pop tune which gets stuck in your head so quickly. It’s obviously far from being her best, but I do like it a lot at the moment and I’m already excited to see how it will sound within the whole album.

    As noted above, yes, it could have been #1 with a good video :(

    I was hooked on “Back To You” again last week, but I think this was like the final boost before starting to fall down my charts.

    Aww… I’m glad you still checked “Sober” out and I’m glad to read these thoughts about it. It’s an unexpected track from her and I feel sorry for her :( I mean, it’s obvious this won’t be a hit, so the release kinda feels like she needed this to say and didn’t know how, so she recorded and released this song.

    Yep, they both dominated my charts in this year so far! I’m quite sure with the upcoming album release Ariana will get lots of plays and NTLTC could end up as my most played song of the year, and who knows, maybe also the most successful one?
    Haha… you’re sweet, thank you <3

    Thanks so much

    Yeah, especially since a lot of cross-Gen evolutions are already available in GO too (and even the Gen IV ones might be available by the time the Let's Go! games drop in November), so making them unavailable in Let's Go! will feel weird even to people who have only ever played GO before. :-?

    Short update to my Yellow playthrough, if you’re still interested: I finally picked it up again. The last time I played it was when I beat Sabrina, so this week I finally went back to Fuchsia City, picked up Strength and Surf (didn’t do that previously), arrived at Cinnabar Island and started to explore the Pokémon Mansion. So nothing big, but all of this already took me more time than expected. I forgot how annoying the Pokémon Mansion was – it used to be the most annoying thing in Red/Blue for me back in the days and I think it still is
    What? Has your partner always been a big fan of/good at fighting games? Which Pokémon did he usually pick? I get what you mean about not wanting to fall behind/constantly lose to someone who's not even a big fan of the franchise It was similar for me when my bf was leveling up faster in GO for a while (but I soon caught up and sped ahead as he gradually lost interest, like a lot of players from the beginning...)

    I'm ALWAYS interested in Pokémon playthrough updates from you <3 Who contributed the most against Sabrina? Her level jump in that game can be tough stuff. Now that I think about it, she might be the only 5th/6th Gym Leader (depending if you face her or Koga first) in any region to have Pokémon at Lv. 50. Even some of the 8th Gym Leaders in other Gens don't have Pokémon at Lv. 50! Ah, you mean those random spots where you have to fall off the edge to drop into certain levels/areas in Pokémon Mansion? It also has some door/shutter puzzle too, right? Making you press random statues to unlock sections of different floors...?

    **Nod** Some of the reviews I've seen for Shawn Mendes mentioned that exactly! Like Pitchfork, for example:

    Nothing about these songs belongs uniquely to Mendes, and you can imagine them being recorded by anyone: Nick Jonas, Charlie Puth, a random choice from the One Direction diaspora.

    Boxing is a big deal in Switzerland? I had no idea! I imagine football is the most popular sport, given what I know about its massive status across Europe, but would boxing place second? Have you ever seen a live fight?

    So basically, your personal health habits went to sh*t without mom around to keep you in check? ;) Not that you look unhealthy in any photos I've seen of you, of course!

    True! The ‘second wind’ is already lasting as long as the ‘first wind’ – they debuted in 2004 and MLJ came out in 2011 Speaking of “Girls Like You”, I don't remember seeing Cardi B on your charts, so I guess you’re not really into her? I love how she just got her second #1 in the US with “I Like It” as the first female rapper ever to get two #1s, and “Girls Like You” could be her third soon.
    Yeah, "Don't Wanna Know" definitely benefitted from "lead single" hype (yet they still left it off the standard edition of Red Pill Blues...)

    Admittedly, most of Cardi's material doesn't do a whole lot for me, but her story/struggles before finally achieving such massive success make me more inclined to root for her anyway (or at least make me less bothered by her chart dominance).

    **Fingers and toes crossed** Tove fizzled way too quickly after "Habits" was pretty massive and "Talking Body" was still a decent-sized hit most places. I guess things started getting off-track for her when they took forever to decide if "Timebomb" or "Moments" would be the official follow-up to "Talking Body," and then "Cool Girl" kind of killed the Lady Wood era before it could even begin... :x

    That’s why I loved Dua Lipa’s era so much, like, it already looked like it’s over as she released lots of singles before the album came out, then the album dropped and had some nice starts everywhere but fell down rather quickly… and out of a sudden, “New Rules” became a surprise hit, the album rose again… and the rest is history!
    Ha, that's such a perfect example! "New Rules" might be the most successful 6th (7th?) single ever!

It’s obviously far from being her best, but I do like it a lot at the moment and I’m already excited to see how it will sound within the whole album.
    I tend to have a hard time tuning out background noise in general in life (like I can't get work done at a busy café, or fall asleep if the TV is still on), so I can see how others probably wouldn't struggle as much to ignore that audio clip in TLIC. Even with it there the whole time, I'm definitely not completely turned off - the track just feels like a step (or two, maybe three) down from "No Tears..." for me.

    Ooh...I'm lovin' the implication that Ari could pull ahead in the second half of 2018! Her album release is still on the horizon, and maybe if she tours in Switzerland before the end of the year, she could REALLY secure that glory! ;)

    Woah, I didn't realize that Lindsey was still promoting/releasing singles from her last (non-holiday) album! This seems like a really interesting/unusual case, where an artist releases a Christmas album, then goes back to promoting the album that came out a year before the Xmas one. Could this be a chart record of sorts, since "First Light" hit No. 1 almost two years after its parent album was released? Especially since it wasn't due to the concert effect (or an album re-release) either.
    • Ah, so "Focus" just BARELY beat out "No Angel" here! At first, "No Angel" was the clear winner for me, since "Focus" felt WAY too repetitive...but toward the end of last week, "Focus" narrowed the gap between them more than I expected.
    • Lindsey gettin' that Christmas-in-July re-entry too!

    Yet another shining chart, Tansike!

    I just checked my Excel spreadsheet, and when I listened to Brave Enough in 2016, it looks like I rated "First Light" 7.9/10. I think I'd bump that up a bit. It really is lovely.

    The new Eleni song definitely isn't on par with "Fuego", but it's a cute summer jam. Boo at the tumble for "Dance for This", though! :(

    True! But is it actually 100% sure we won’t get them?

    I'm ALWAYS interested in Pokémon playthrough updates from you <3 Who contributed the most against Sabrina? Her level jump in that game can be tough stuff. Now that I think about it, she might be the only 5th/6th Gym Leader (depending if you face her or Koga first) in any region to have Pokémon at Lv. 50. Even some of the 8th Gym Leaders in other Gens don't have Pokémon at Lv. 50! Ah, you mean those random spots where you have to fall off the edge to drop into certain levels/areas in Pokémon Mansion? It also has some door/shutter puzzle too, right? Making you press random statues to unlock sections of different floors...?
    I don’t know, he’s usually more a RPG or shooter gamer. He always picked different ones, he liked to try them out instead of picking the same all the time. You’re still playing GO, do you? I also belong to the people who gave up on it very quickly, but then I’m not someone who is ‘on the way’ that often and if then it’s with my car so I wouldn’t be able to catch lots of Pokémon.

    <3 Erm. Is it bad when I forgot who helped the most from my team? I think it was Pikachu or Pidgeot. But yes, going by levels her team has a very high standard compared to other editions. Yes, I mean that. Plus, I don’t know if it’s just me, but wild Pokémons appear all the time in the Pokémon Mansion, like more than usual. At least I already thought this back when I played it for the first time and it still feels that way now. Anyways, I made it through the Mansion and beat Blaine, which ended up much easier than expected, despite his team being Ninetales (lv. 48), Rapidash (lv. 50) and Arcanine (lv. 54), which looks very strong on paper. My highest one – Pikachu – is still only level 45
    Side note: I wtf’ed a bit when Arcanine used Reflect. A move I didn’t see coming at all!

    Oh, interesting to see I’m not the only one thinking so and even some professional reviewers felt the same! Not a good sign for Shawn, but he still has enough time to find his sound.

    Well, it’s actually bigger in Germany than in Switzerland, but most stuff from Germany kinda affects Switzerland as well, and some German TV stations do a lot of promo for Boxing, which affects Switzerland as well as these TV stations are big here too. Anyways, yeah, I think Football may be the most popular in Switzerland, but I think Tennis would be second due to King Roger

    Haha yeah basically. Well, back when I still lived ‘home’ my mom obviously cooked or looked after what we ate, and once I moved out that wasn’t the case anymore Thanks, yeah, I’m not completely unhealthy, but it could be better for sure.

    To be fair the whole “Red Pill Blues” era was quite strange at first with all these ‘random’ single releases before the album came out…

    Well, I can live with that answer! At least you don’t hate her

    True. I still think “Queen Of The Clouds” and “Lady Wood” deserved way more attention as they’re really, really good. I know you’re feeling the same about “Blue Lips”, but she herself kinda abandoned that album, while she didn’t do that with the other two. Interesting to see your thoughts about “Cool Girl”, I thought it was quite a nice hit for her and gave her more recognition again

    True! Closely followed by “IDGAF” as the most successful 7th or 8th single ever
    Ok, Katy’s “Teenage Dream” era may say hi. But other than that I can’t remember a single which became so huge despite being released so late in the era.

    <3 Aww… I actually feel completely the same! So I don’t ignore that background ‘noise’ on TLIC, but I actually like it somehow. But I completely understand why one wouldn’t like it, and don’t get me wrong, while I really enjoy TLIC, I agree with you that it’s a few steps down compared to “No Tears…”.

    Her chances are really big actually, as she’s still so high on my charts and I still love the song so much, so I don’t see it falling down soon. Also because of the missing competition... there were a few big hits, but a really big one is still missing for 2018 so far. As for a tour, I think if she does one, it will be next years, as ‘big’ artists usually announce their tours a year or even more in advance. That would definitely a ‘must-see’ for me, especially after she cancelled her last (and first) concert in Switzerland last year

    Well, that’s probably a case of ‘when is a song a single?’. Basically she only released a video for “First Light”, and back in the days she threw out videos all the time, and she still does that for random stuff such as a Greatest Showman medley, an “It Ain’t Me” cover or so. She’s probably not the typical artist who promotes an album, ends with it and moves on. She’s more doing whatever she feels to do and in the end I’m happy she decided to release a video for “First Light”, as it’s one of the most typical Lindsey-tracks on “Brave Enough”.
    Regarding your question, yes, I think this is the first time ever an artist gets a number one single from an album which is nearly two years old. It happened every now and then that there’s one doing it a year after the albums release; the biggest gap I found was Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die”, which debuted in the week 05/2012 and “Dark Paradise” hit #1 on the singles charts in the week 10/2013.

    Nice to hear this about “Focus”. I already saw your latest chart and so I knew you’d prefer “No Angel”. Interestingly, the gap is slowly getting bigger for me, with “Focus” becoming the clearer fave of mine.

    Yes – a very unexpected re-entry! But I listened to a ‘Best Of Lindsey Stirling’ playlist I’ve created with the best songs of her whole discography last week, and got stuck at “Carol Of The Bells”…

    So I see you’re also quoting Blair St. Clair’s “Now Or Never”. What are your thoughts about that one if I may ask?

    Thank you so much

    7.9/10 already sounds great, but i'm glad it seems you're enjoying "First Light" even more now! It's definitely one of the most typical Lindsey songs on "Brave Enough" and i'm glad she released a video for it.

    Agree about "Caramela". As for "Dance To This", i don't know, i'm already quite over it. I hope the album release will get me back into the singles again.

    I'm not sure if we've gotten any further confirmation from official sources, aside from what the developers said during those question-and-answer sessions, but only Gen I Pokémon have appeared in all of the trailers and gameplay footage shown so far :( They might make it possible to transfer over cross-Gen evolutions from GO, but there hasn't been any actual evidence for that yet...

    Yeah, if you had to go out of your way/change your daily routine just to find opportunities to play GO, it totally makes sense that you'd lose interest quickly. I generally walk (or take public transportation) whenever possible, so GO gameplay fit into my lifestyle pretty perfectly.

At least I already thought this back when I played it for the first time and it still feels that way now. Anyways, I made it through the Mansion and beat Blaine, which ended up much easier than expected, despite his team being Ninetales (lv. 48), Rapidash (lv. 50) and Arcanine (lv. 54), which looks very strong on paper. My highest one – Pikachu – is still only level 45 Side note: I wtf’ed a bit when Arcanine used Reflect. A move I didn’t see coming at all!
    So disrespectful to your team's efforts They fought their hardest for you, even over-coming a serious level disadvantage, and you instantly forget the whole ordeal. Kidding aside, it sounds like you've been really chugging along, with only Giovanni and the Elite Four/Champion left! I'm especially interested to hear how Let's Go will feel for you, since Yellow will still be so fresh in your mind...

Anyways, yeah, I think Football may be the most popular in Switzerland, but I think Tennis would be second due to King Roger
    So there's a lot of German cultural influence in Switzerland, beyond just sports and TV? I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to life in Switzerland, so I might be asking some very obvious questions here Ha, all hail King Roger...or is it more like Daddy Roger for you? ;)

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    Does your partner cook much, or do you usually eat out/order in when you're together?

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    I definitely don't hate her My only real problem/concern with her was when she defended some of the homophobic sh*t her husband's said...but I don't want to hold his words against her too much, and I can understand the temptation to defend the person you love, even if they've done some distasteful sh*t.

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

I know you’re feeling the same about “Blue Lips”, but she herself kinda abandoned that album, while she didn’t do that with the other two. Interesting to see your thoughts about “Cool Girl”, I thought it was quite a nice hit for her and gave her more recognition again
    I never really got into it myself, and it flopped pretty hard (or at least under-performed) on the charts I follow most often (US, UK)...but after checking Wikipedia, it looks like it did out-peak "Talking Body" in several other markets I can't bring myself to blame the amazing "True Disaster" for de-railing her career, though...

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    Sadly, "IDGAF" was pretty much ignored in the US (No. 49 on the Hot 100), but I know it maintained her "New Rules" momentum pretty well basically everywhere else in the world. Ah, "Teenage Dream" is a great example, though I'd say "New Rules" was bigger than "The One That Got Away" (and then the TD re-release singles don't feel like a totally fair comparison).

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

It happened every now and then that there’s one doing it a year after the albums release; the biggest gap I found was Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die”, which debuted in the week 05/2012 and “Dark Paradise” hit #1 on the singles charts in the week 10/2013.
    OoOh...many thanks for digging up that trivia about Lana!

    Quote Originally Posted by Tansike

    I actually just checked it out last week thanks to the link you provided here! All of the story and humor in the video definitely overshadow the song itself, but it still sounded pretty good!

    Woah - props for this unexpected plot twist! I definitely wasn't expecting "I'm A Mess" to rebound all the way to No. 1 after that 5-5-6 run so far - unless there was a recent video release or epic performance that I missed? Admittedly, I haven't been playing the song much after it didn't impress me much when it first dropped, but this might inspire me to re-visit it this week...
    • Although I would've loved if we shared the same Palo Santo faves, it's still awesome to see those two re-entries - and both of them earning new peaks! How high did "Meteorite" get?

    Yet another tidy chart, Tansike!

    Hmm okay. Fingers crossed they may actually appear in Let’s Go…

    Ah yeah, it makes a lot more sense if you’re generally walking anyway. Of course there’s still the possibility to walk around for the game itself, but it never impressed me as much as it would have been worth it walking around to catch Pokémon.
    (side note: does this phrase make any sense? My english still is not the best when it comes to building phrases )

    I know! To be fair, the battle against Sabrina was quite easy which is why I don’t remember much of it. I didn’t play the past few days so Giovanni and the Elite Four are still left. True, I’m a little bit afraid that I may get bored quick(er) because the first Gen is so fresh to me

    Hmm… good question! Actually I would say no. The influence mainly comes from TV, like ‘The Voice Of Germany’ or other casting shows usually have an even bigger effect on our market than our own casting shows. But other than this ‘TV influence’, I wouldn’t say there’s a lot of German cultural influence.

    Nah, I’m fine with King Roger – he’s not my type

    All of that to be honest He loves to cook, but we also go out to eat or order some stuff to our place, which is way too easy to do these days by the way!
    How is it in your relationship?

    Good! Ah yeah. Ariana just had something similar when she defended her fiancé who made a joke about the Manchester bombing. This really can affect an artist, as in Ariana’s case I’m currently a bit irritated and don’t know how I should think about her. In Cardi’s case I’m just enjoying the music and I’m not a ‘fan’-fan, so this didn’t bother me that much. But I get your point.

    Haha… I just experienced the other way; I always thought “Talking Body” already bombed, but I just found out it was a Top20 in the UK and the US But yeah, “Cool Girl” was actually a nice-sized hit for her and even when it peaked low in many countries, it showed some impressive longevity in many of them as it was a streaming hit. But yeah, “True Disaster” really was a true disaster commercially, which I still am shocked about as it’s one of my favorite songs on “Lady Wood” :(

    Ok fair point, I didn’t know it only peaked at #49. That’s still not too bad, and it was a huge success in the UK at least. Dua still is a one hit wonder in the US, so it will be interesting to watch how she will do with the lead track to her second album.
    Ah yes, of course it’s not the fairest comparison, but it was the only era I remembered that had so many singles

    You’re welcome! I always love it when you ask a question like this & I have to dig in my Excels to search an answer – simply because I never write down these kind of records & stuff, so it’s always interesting for me as well to find these things out <3

    Glad you checked it out! I get what you mean, I’m not really a fan of the break after the first chorus, the song doesn’t flow well that way, but I think the video is well done nonetheless. Very happy you still enjoyed it!

    No, you’ve missed nothing. Well, there was a performance I’d nearly call epic and I only discovered around a week ago, but that wasn’t the reason for that climb. It simply was real tight in the whole Top10 during the last month, most of them were contenders for #1 and last week, the competition was a little bit weaker and Bebe finally made it.

    “Meteorite” peaked at #3, this was its chartrun: 25-28-31-32-27-18-*3*-6-7-7-8-11-14-21-25-26-33-Out
    It took some time to click with me but ended up as a very successful hit.

    Thank you

    Yep... his new album made a weak impression on me at first, but i'm currently getting back into it. A shame he's not successful anymore.

    Hey Tansike

    1 (NEW) Ariana Grande – God Is A Woman
    2 (5) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *P*
    3 (6) Ariana Grande feat. Nicki Minaj – The Light Is Coming

    WOW This is amazing for Ariana Grande. God is a woman has turned out to be the epic gospel flavoured r'n'b bop that i was hoping for, and the music video is like the gift that keeps on giving. So delighted to see this #1 here but i suspected as much when i knew this was getting released.

    How many times has an artist occupied your top 3 in the same week?

    5 (3) Lindsey Stirling – First Light

    I must thank you for introducing this to me two weeks ago. I checked out First light after seeing it #1 here and i got goosebumps listening to the song. The violin melody is so enchanting, so emotional and yet so eerie. I just love the way the song progresses and builds right to the very end. This now becomes Lindsey's highest charting single in my chart.

    10 (NEW) Twenty One Pilots – Jumpsuit

    Heading for my chart this Saturday, although i'm going to a wedding so my chart will be posted earlier than usual, possibly tomorrow night. As for Jumpsuit i checked this out on its day of release as i was curious to hear what these guys would return with. It's definitely got some intriguing moments that keep me interested but i don't see this being #1 worthy. :(

    17 (NEW) Charlie Puth – The Way I Am

    Music video effect? Or has this now entered because it's officially the next single. I think Charlie is looking mighty fine in this video. He brought the sex appeal on this one. It's also his best single since How long.

    19 (NEW) Niall Horan – Finally Free

    Aww, you sure know how to make me happy. So pleased to see Niall making the top 20. I wasn't sure how you would react to this song but for me, it's just such an enjoyable uplifting pop song which sounds perfect for an animated film.

    Best of the rest:

    11 (8) Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande – Bed
    12 (7) Years & Years – Sanctify
    13 (10) Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato – Solo *G*
    14 (13) Demi Lovato – Sober
    15 (11) Billie Eilish & Khalid – Lovely
    16 (14) Evanescence feat. Lindsey Stirling – Hi-Lo
    22 (17) Namika – Je ne parle pas français
    25 (16) Selena Gomez – Back To You *G*
    28 (23) Christina Aguilera feat. Demi Lovato – Fall In Line
    29 (21) Years & Years – If You’re Over Me
    30 (27) Elina Nechayeva – La forza *G*
    36 (33) Martin Garrix feat. Khalid – Ocean

    Hey Jake

    YASSS! As i commented over on your topic, i'm also loving "God Is A Woman" so much. At first i was slightly disappointed, as i wanted a pop-dance-bop à la "Break Free" or "Into You", but i'm glad she went with something which is yet again not trend-chasing. Her era has been really strong so far, so i can't wait to hear the full album.

    That's a very good question! I also asked myself about that but didn't look it up until now. There was someone who i had in my mind and going through some Discographies, that artist also made it: Lana Del Rey! In week 05/2012 she was in the Top3 with "Born To Die" (#1), "Video Games" (#2) and "Blue Jeans" (#3). I also just discovered that Lindsey Stirling also did it after i attended her first concert in week 44/2014 with "Roundtable Rival" (#1), "Master Of Tides" (#2) and "Crystallize" (#3).

    Other than that, Kerli nearly did it in the week 12/2013 as she was #1 ("The Lucky Ones"), #2 ("Army Of Love") and #4 ("Zero Gravity"). But i guess that's it, so Ariana is only the third artist ever to occupy the whole Top3 in the same week

    As you can imagine, i'm very happy that you not only checked this out, but also enjoyed it so much! This has been one of my favorite songs of the album since it came out nearly two years ago, so i was happy when she announced the release of a video for "First Light". I'm glad this became a hit for her on your charts just when we were talking about her Discography, and i'm also excited to see how it will do overall.
    Random fact: Bebe Rexha actually sampled this on her "All Your Fault, Pt. 1" EP last year on the song "Small Doses" <3

    Can't wait to see how this one will do! I think it's a good comeback. They never had that one huge hit for me, so i didn't expect them to come back with an immense song, so i'm quite happy with "Jumpsuit".

    Both. The video kinda confirmed its single status for me, so i let it onto my charts. I agree with you about Charlie looking mighty fine, but i disagree on the second part, as i loved "Done For Me" and think that was the best single of "Voicenotes" But i'm so glad he delivered the look in the video and went back to his brown hair

    I knew you would love this debut! As i said in your topic, i was pleasantly surprised by "Finally Free". I don't see this becoming a big hit on my charts but at least he scored another Top20 - he's having the strongest discography on my charts by all of the One Direction boys and that's well deserved, as he's definitely also the most promising one.

    Some Informations regarding My Charts

    Due to me being on vacation for nearly three weeks starting next week, the upcoming few charts will be posted in an unusual way. Here's the current plan:

    week 30: full charts coming on Monday, 23rd July
    week 31: Top5 of the Singles Top40 coming on Thursday, 2nd August, if possible *
    week 32: Top5 of the Singles Top40 coming on Friday, 10th August
    week 31 and 32: full charts coming between 11th and 13th August

    * if internet is working

    Please understand that i will most likely not be able to reply to your comments, but i will pick them up once i'm back in Switzerland.
    If something unforeseen happens and i'll have an internet connection, i will obviously stick to posting the complete charts on thursdays or if i don't have a connection at all, i won't even be able to post the Top5 updates for week 31. Everything is possible and i just wanted to point this out in case i won't be able to post at all

    Greetings,
    Tansike

    Oh wow that's incredible. Has your partner met your family? Is he the guy who sings in a vocal harmony group? I remember you mentioned him a while back in this thread.

    He has met part of my family, like my parents and my brother, so the 'important' ones. He didn't met my aunts, grandmother etc. yet, while i meet them all at once next week, and we will live with them, so i'm kinda nervous Yes, it's him

    Your memory is good - it ties "Feliz Navidad" (1-4-9-37-Out) as her song with the shortest chartrun so far. But i'm sure it will go up again once her live album drops, and "Feliz Navidad" may make a re-entry during Christmas time.

    Fantastic #1! I feel like we don't have many pop 'moments' these days, but "God Is a Woman" is certainly a big one, and I'm happy it's come before the launch of the album, as I did have a few concerns with "No Tears Left to Cry" and "The Light Is Coming" both being just 'okay' for me. We have a stunner now, and I'm excited for the new LP.

    Charlie Puth is so adorable in his "The Way I Am" video! The song isn't bad either.

    1 (NEW) Ariana Grande – God Is A Woman
    2 (5) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry *P*
    3 (6) Ariana Grande feat. Nicki Minaj – The Light Is Coming
    4 (1) Bebe Rexha – I’m A Mess
    5 (3) Lindsey Stirling – First Light
    6 (4) Halsey feat. Lauren Jauregui – Strangers
    11 (8) Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande – Bed
    12 (7) Years & Years – Sanctify
    13 (10) Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato – Solo *G*
    14 (13) Demi Lovato – Sober
    16 (14) Evanescence feat. Lindsey Stirling – Hi-Lo
    17 (NEW) Charlie Puth – The Way I Am
    19 (NEW) Niall Horan – Finally Free
    24 (22) Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin – I Like It
    25 (16) Selena Gomez – Back To You *G*
    26 (26) Eleni Foureira – Caramela
    28 (23) Christina Aguilera feat. Demi Lovato – Fall In Line
    29 (21) Years & Years – If You’re Over Me
    36 (33) Martin Garrix feat. Khalid – Ocean

    Agree about "Caramela". As for "Dance To This", i don't know, i'm already quite over it. I hope the album release will get me back into the singles again.
    I hope so, too!

    ^ Glad you're loving "God Is A Woman" that much as well! As you know, i already thought about that pop 'moment' when she released "No Tears", but i'm glad you're having that moment with "God Is A Woman" now.

    Agree about the "The Way I Am" video! A shame he isn't as successful as he was with her debut, even though he's still releasing some great tunes.
