Does anyone have any suggestions for other charts to comment on/keep up with? I think it would be pretty fun.

In 1999, Eminem released his debut single My Name Is which reached number 2 in the charts. It was beaten to the number one spot by this.

I completely agree! This is actually my third favourite song of all-time. :)

It's a great song. I remember it reached number 2 in the chart after he died but it was beaten to the top spot by Cascada - Evacuate The Dance Floor

avatar

Piran

I vaguely remember that chart. Crazy to think that happened over 11 years ago now! :O

avatar

Cameron

Yeah there were loads of Michael Jackson songs in the top 40. I would have loved Man In The Mirror to reach number 1 as a tribute to Jackson but I didn't mind Evacuate The Dance Floor being number 1

avatar

Piran

I wasn't too mad that it got blocked, given that I love Cascada, but yeah, 'Man In The Mirror' going to #1 would've been a really good tribute.

By far the best 6ix9ine song. I would still recommend it to people to hate his music.

The features on here are golden as well.

So Kanye West is running for president (!!!), 6ix9ine dropped a Spanish song (more Autotune than Lil Wayne), and Jason Derulo might claim a second week at number 1.

avatar

Only kinda bad thing here is Savage Love getting a second week, although it's kinda growing on me l.

Kanye West running for president probably won't happen (and if it does it'll be interesting) and I like the new 6ix9ine song.

also Lil Wayne dosen't use much autotune...

#3: Robin Schulz & Wes - Alane (-2) v [604]
#4: Will Ferrell & My Marianne - Jaja Ding Dong (debut) ^ [578]
#5: Cheat Codes & Kim Petras - Feeling Of Falling (-2) v [552]
#6: Kim Petras - Heart To Break (-2) v [531]
#7: Will Ferrell & My Marianne - Double Trouble (debut) ^ [510]
#8: Jubel ft NEIMY - Dancing In The Moonlight (=) -- [504]
#9: CHVRCHES - Never Say Die (-3) v [492]
#10: Demi Lovato - In The Mirror (debut) ^ [486]

Basically, 'Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga' is going to have a massive week! :D

Not a good start on the Digital Songs Sales chart in the US mate... Kanye's already at #1 with a partial week of sales, BLACKPINK debuted at #2 & Cupcakke just about sneaked into the Top 10 (although she thankfully probably won't chart on the Hot 100). :/

avatar

🧡 oliviasnoodles 🍜

Yeah I just saw and I don’t really like Wash Us In The Blood. BLACKPINK at #2 as well? Please say they’ll drop... -_-

avatar

Piran

1

I haven't even heard the new songs from Kanye West & Cupcakke, but I just don't like them as people! :P

The only reason the former is #1 on sales there is because he announced he's running for president, haha.

Simm has 'How You Like That' at #21 on yesterday's Hot 100 prediction, but wherever that song debuts, it'll probably fall fast like 'Trollz' did!

Fun facts:

- Jawsh 685 becomes the first New Zealander to top the charts since Lorde with 'Royals' back in 2013. Aged just 17, he becomes the youngest man to solo-produce a No.1 single since Martin Garrix reached the summit with 'Animals' in 2013, also at age 17.
- Lewis Capaldi's 'Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent' year to date tally sits at 310,188, almost double the 2020 sales of Stormzy's 'Heavy Is The Head' which has garnered 166,430 units as the year's second biggest album so far.

Yes to Hypercolour landing at 77! Really hope this one manages to crack the Top 40, especially with the house resurgence happening at the moment. Also a big well done to Becky Hill and Sigala for charting in at 38 with Heaven on My Mind - although I dont find it a good as Wish You Well, its still a decent enough track for the summer.

Hopefully fake friends can enter it next week, and midnight cementing it’s place in the top 40 I’m loving!

Really REALLY hope becky hill can climb heaven on my mind is an absolute banger and can do big things, she deserves a leading top 10 single so bad!

Perfect STILL in the top 40 aswell, this point I just want it to stay long as long as possible it’s so funny to see.

I am annoyed that "Dance Monkey" is still on the charts which I don't like because it is the only song from Tones And I that is big and I hope another song from Tones And I will be on the charts because there was another song that was on charts for only 2 weeks months ago from Tones And I and I hope it will be back on the charts one day. I feel like "Dance Monkey" is still being overplayed which is annoying. We need another song from Tones And I to be on the charts because it is getting on my nerves.

Apparently Jason Derulo sampled the beat of Savage Love from an instrumental song by Jawsh 685 without permission and wanted to release the song himself without crediting Jawsh 685 which led to a backlash but both Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo have resolved the issue and Jawsh 685 has allowed the sample and is credited on the song

Can't stay long today, but my thoughts on today's chart: we all knew 'Savage Love' would go to no 1, shame but nice to see something new. as long as it doesn't go full on 'Dance Monkey' on us.

WEEKLY CHART REVIEW (03/07/2020 - 09/07/2020)

Haha, well it would appear now that I’m ready to go back to doing longer reviews again, apparently the charts are ready too! We’ve gone up from two to four new arrivals this week, as well as a brand new song at the top.

Anyway, while ‘Savage Love’ is far from the best #1 song of 2020 & I really do question how this is going to age with me, unlike the majority here, I actually find it very fun & catchy, for now at least. Regardless, like it or not, I’ve said from the start that this had huge Song Of The Summer potential & this week’s overall combined sales for it only confirms that!

Just before we get to the new entries, it’s awesome to see ‘Watermelon Sugar’ & ‘Secrets’ both move up the Top 10 to reach new peaks, but of course, ‘Kings & Queens’ entering the Top 20 would be the highlight for me in terms of songs that were charting last week.

So, onto the new music for this week, starting with the highest of them being from BLACKPINK! Again, K-Pop isn’t a much loved genre on this forum, yet BLACKPINK are among my favourite acts to come out of Korea & they’ve even landed a few of their own songs in my personal chart… although, sadly, this isn’t going to be one of them! My concern is that the production from Teddy seems to be a blend of that from their previous hits ‘Ddu-Du Ddu-Du’ & ‘Kill This Love’, but unlike both of those songs, the vibe of this song just doesn’t suit the girls at all. Sure, each of the members still bring their signature sass & attitude to this song, but when the pre-chorus reminded me what XXXTENTACION did on the hook of ‘Look At Me!’ in the sense that they’re essentially screaming for attention without sounding at all rebellious, I’m not going to like it one bit! I also found the drop to be surprisingly weak from this group & honestly, the only part of this new single that works is the heavier bubbling electro beat towards the end of the song, but even then, it’s not worth the wait to get to that underlying melody. Sorry if there are any die-hard fans here, but this was a massive disappointment! Solid 4/10.

Now we move on to a summery tropical remake of a much-loved classic by King Harvest from way back in 1972! Now while they did the original, you all probably remember the cover that Toploader did much later on in 2000, as this was a much bigger global smash, particularly in the UK. Anyway, the version we’re going to be talking about is more of a remix by Swedish EDM duo Jubel! I’ve been hearing this one on Capital FM for at least a couple of weeks now, but I think it’s cool they kept a generally slower tempo for a dance song & they the beat is a lot softer to accompany Neimy’s more breathy vocals. The wavy guitars are a surprisingly good fit here, but you can tell that this particular take on the song was made for the hotter months only, so it almost certainly won’t have the same nostalgic feel that either of the earlier versions had! That being said, it’s easy to see why this has over 100 million streams on Spotify & that it’s a pleasant tribute to a timeless hit (which King Harvest themselves expressed their support for!). For me, I’m thinking a solid 8/10!

Up next, we’ve got… Bring Me The Horizon?! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I’m just surprised at how well this song did, if anything! They’ve not even been out of the rock scene for all that long & yet, this is their first Top 40 entry since 2014’s ‘Drown’ & their second highest charting song ever. Oh well, I’m certainly not complaining, because this is one of the hardest hitting rock songs I’ve seen in the charts in a long time! It’s so thunderously heavy with those crushing riffs & Oliver Sykes’ powerful growls just turn this into a bonafide headbanger. It’s also interesting how part of their fanbase think that this might be inspired by a Japanese horror game of the same name, or that they possibly wrote this before the night of the current pandemic or the lockdown that came with it! My only criticisms are that the robotic whispers of Alissa Salls are placed at a very weird place in the song & don’t really add any suspense to otherwise such an intense tune, along with how scattered the guitars are before that final explosive hook. Obviously nobody knows when bands will be back on tour at the moment, but man, whenever BMTH do get back on the road, this one will go off! I’m giving this a solid 7/10.

Meanwhile, this next one is a song that I’m well behind on, as we’ve got the second collaboration between Becky Hill & Sigala, called ‘Heaven In My Mind’! I actually know a couple of people on Disqus who are obsessed with the former artist & while this afternoon was only the first time I heard this song, I can safely say that I think I’ll get into more than ‘Wish You Well’! Becky’s delivery is arguably more joyous here & it has a much more personal feel to it; just trying to think about the good times when you’re in a dark place in your life, which is something that many people need right now. Also, it is just me, or does the chorus have a similar vibe to ‘Lose Control’ with the deeper drops & Becky’s vocals pitched down? I felt that, but I mean that in a positive way! I wouldn’t say I love it just yet, but I think it could get there with a few listens. For the time being, this is a light 8/10!

So yeah, apart from one, the new entries weren’t bad at all this week! I see that ACR is failing to get rid of older songs, with ‘Dance Monkey’ not falling, ‘Perfect’ rising yet again & ‘Someone You Loved’ even re-entering the region. So much for allowing newer hits to chart, eh?

As for next week, based on the first day numbers. it looks like I might be reviewing new music from Joel Corry & MNEK, AJ Tracey & Mabel, as well as, urgh, Kanye West, among others.

That’s it for now though! Have a good weekend. Remember to stay safe with everything reopening! :)

How they can go from the awesome 'Sour Candy' to this?! :(

I was quite surprised that I liked 'Sour Candy' since I'm not a major fan of either Lady Gaga or BLACKPINK.

I hated Kill This Love too, but that’s more tolerable than How You Like That.

I think we can both agree that 'How You Like That' is definitely their worst song to date. :/

Should that not be AJ Tracey & Mabel Piran? Do you not like Mabel or was it a typo? I'm loving becky Hill this week and the fact Kygo is finally getting closer to the top 40. I am finding his album amazing and better with each listen, its criminal that none of the tracks have made the top 40 except higher love which sounds like it doesn't belong with this album.
