During 2017 we have only seen three songs at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart, the year started off with Clean Bandits' "Rockabye", and a few weeks ago we saw former 1D'er Harry Styles debut at the top, but the dominant track for this year has been Ed Sheeran with his "Shape of You" track, which this week racks up it's record breaking fifteenth weeks at No.1 in Australia.

"Shape of You" has now spent more time at the top here than any other track since the charts went weekly in January 1949, beating the former record holder, April 1976's "Fernando" (this week in '76 it had been at the top for 5 weeks, chart dated 3rd May) which stayed atop for fourteen weeks. In fact we have to go back to the 1940 to 1948 chart period to find anything that has lasted longer (the charts were monthly between this period), when The Andrews Sisters in 1948 spent 18 weeks at No.1 with their track "Near You" (the record is 23 weeks in 1943 for 'White Christmas' for Bing Crosby). One thing again with 'Shape' is that it's not at the top of either the Digital (#7) or Streaming (#2) chart this week, but neither of the current No.1's on those charts aret selling enough on the other chart that they can reach the top this week.

Ed Sheeran has now racked up 21 weeks at No.1 in Australia from his three chart-toppers, and that now places him equal second for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010's; Singles' alongside Pharrell Williams (Rihanna is in first place with 23 weeks), and Ed moves up from equal 32nd to now equal 29th on the overall list for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 1940 to 2017' with not only Pharrell, but Bryan Adams (from four No.1's). And with Ed holding the top of both charts again this week, he makes it seven weeks in a row for 'Shape' and its parent album "÷ (Divide)", which becomes the longest stretch for one song and album by a Solo Male Artist at the top, beating the six weeks previously set my Michael Jackson in late 1991, but one solo male act has come close to achieving this in the past, just with the one album, but two No.1's from that set, in Bryan Adams who took "Please Forgive Me" (5 weeks from 12-Dec-1993) and "All for Love" (2 weeks from 23-Jan-1994) both from the collection "So Far So Good", whilst the last act to hold both top spots for seven weeks was Adele from late June in 2011 with "Someone Like You" and her second set "21".

Ed Sheeran again has the Top 2 positions in the country, with his current No.1 Digital selling single "Galway Girl" (#3 streamed) climbing back to its former peak of No.2 which achieved four weeks ago. The current No.1 streamed track is again "Humble." by Kendrick Lamar, which is down one spot this week to No.3 overall and drops to No.16 on the digital sales chart too, but for Kendrick the track achieves Gold (●) in sales after only four weeks on the chart.Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson climb up two places to a new peak of No.4 this week with their collaboration "Symphony", which gives Zara her equal second-highest charted song (alongside "Lush Life") and her third Top 4 single after "Never Forget You" peaked at No.3, with this move pushing down two songs one place in "Something Just Like This" for The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, plus "Sign of the Times" (now Gold (●) in sales) for Harry Styles to No.5 and No.6 respectively.

Two tracks staying on hold this week are "Stay" for Zedd and Alessia Cara plus "Green Light" for Lorde at No.7 and No.9 respectively, plus both tracks achieve a new certification of ▲Platinum in sales too. In between those two stable tracks is the highest new entry for this week at No.8, Shawn Mendes with the third single lifted from his "Illuminate" album (TW-47) "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back". This becomes his third Top 10 single in Australia, and his first to debut within the Top 10 (also making it his highest new entry in the process too), and it is also helped by his recent announcement for a second national tour here in late November. And finally scoring her eleventh Top 10 single in Australia is Lady Gaga with last weeks entry "The Cure", which jumps up seven places to land at a new peak of No.10, and it's her first ten-entrant since "The Edge of Glory" climbed to No.2 in late July of 2011.

UP:
* Dean Lewis hits the Top 20 shores with his track "Waves", up four to a new peak of No.17, the song newly certified Gold (●) too.
* Also cracking a new certification of Gold (●) is Future with "Mask off" (HP-20), which is back up two places to No.22.
* FF8 lead single "Good Life" for G-Eazy and Kehlani rises eight places to a new peak of No.23.
* Jason DeRulo holds at his No.25 peak of for a second week with "Swalla".
* The fastest climbing track for this week is last weeks second lowest entry, "Despacito" for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, which came in at No.93, and this week zooms up sixty-seven places to No.26, giving Luis his first Top 50 and Top 30 hit here in Australia, and the second for Daddy Yankee.
* With the debut EP out and the highest new entry on the albums chart this week for Amy Shark, her two singles rise back up this week, with first entry "Adore" rising seven to No.27, and second single "Weekends" jumping twenty-one spots to land at a new peak of No.53.
* The Kyle track "iSpy" is up one spot to a new peak of No.35.
* The new Bliss N' Eso album was released on Friday, and the current single from the album "Moments" is up six spots to a new peak of No.37, becoming the sixth Top 40 single for the boys, their highest so far was "My Life" (Jan 2014, HP-26).
* Andy Grammer was in the country last week on a promo visit, plus he sung his former No.5 single "Fresh Eyes" at The Logie Awards last Sunday night (23rd April), which helps the song to rebound twenty-one spots to No.39.
* Kaleo break into the Top 40 this week with their first entry "Way Down We Go", jumping up thirteen places to land at a new chart height of No.40, the song being helped by its appearance in the X-Men/Wolverine film 'Logan' too.
* After an initial stumble, the new Cheat Codes and Demi Lovator track "No Promises" is up nine spots to a new peak of No.41.
* Post Malone continue to climb with "Congratulations", this week its up three to a new peak of No.62.
* Last weeks entry for Lord Huron and "The Night We Met" is up eight to a new peak of No.78.
* Ed Sheeran continues his record breaks for this week, as "Thinking Out Loud" is on hold at No.92 and spending its 125th week within the Top 100, still the longest charted song for ARIA.
* The only returning track for the week is Tash Sultana and "Jungle" (HP-39) at No.99.

DOWN:
* There are two songs leaving the Top 10 this week, the first of which leaves for the first time in its ten week run on the charts, "It Ain't Me" (HP-4, WI10-9) for Kygo and Selena Gomez, which is down only one spot to No.11, whilst dropping four to No.12 is Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" (HP-5, WI10-6).
* Drake falls two spots to No.13 with his "Passionfruit", which is newly Gold (●) in sales.
* The three Kendrick Lamar debuts from last week all move down this week, with "DNA" (16 to 19), "Loyalty" (20 to 28) and "Love" (29 to 36) falling a little, thankfully not a lot.
* The Chainsmokers' "Paris" drops seven to No.29 this week, whilst their former No.1 "Closer" with Halsey is down seven to No.55 and newly 10x▲Platinum, whilst "The One" plummets eighteen spots to No.82.
* Starley and her debut track "Call on Me" is down three to No.33 and now 2x▲Platinum in sales.
* The Zayn and Taylor Swift duet from '50 Shades Darker' drops seven to No.45.
* Two Future tracks fall this week, with his Rihanna duet "Selfish" down two to No.46, and his appearance on the Maroon 5 song "Cold" down ten to No.49, but this song is now Gold (●).
* The Weeknd and Daft Punk drop with both of their collaborations this week, with "I Feel it Coming" down eight to No.48 and "Starboy" falls seven to No.56.
* The first No.1 for this year in "Rockabye" for Clean Bandit with Anne-Marie & Sean Paul drops ten places to No.51.

* Adele's "Water Under the Bridge" and Sheppard with "Keep Me Crazy" both fall thirteen places to No.68 and No.69 respectively.
* Imagine Dragons grab a Gold (●) certification for their track "Beleiver", which is down fourteen spots to No.72 this week.
* Dropping eleven to No.77 is Rag'N'Bone Man and his debut entry "Human".
* The final Gold (●) in the chart this week is for Big Sean and "Bounce Back" which is down six to No.84.
* The Vamps tumble nineteen spots to No.86 with "All Night" after 21 weeks in the chart.
* Drake's "Fake Love" drops twelve places this week to No.87.

NEW ENTRIES:
* #44 - Lust for Life by Lana Del Rey feat The Weeknd is the second single lifted from Lana's fifth due album also entitled "Lust for Life" (no date known as yet), and follows on from "Love" (HP-41, late February of 2017) and this becomes her ninth Top 50 and twelfth Top 100 entry.

* #59 - Murder to the Mind by Tash Sultana is the second entry from her debut EP "Notion" (TW-13), and follows on from this weeks No.99 re-entry "Jungle" (HP-39)

* #61 - Hard Times by Paramore is the first single from the forthcoming fifth album for the band entitled "After Laughter" (due May 12th), and is the first new material from the group since early 2014, with this track becoming the bands thirteenth Top 100 entry (11 for the band, two for lead singer Hayley Williams).

* #64 - Attention by Charlie Puth is the lead single from his forthcoming second album (no date or title known as yet), and becomes his fifth chart entry, with all four previous entries hitting the Top 10 too.

* #67 - Don't Give Me Those Eyes by James Blunt is helped into the charts by a couple of events, one is his appearance on the Graham Norton Show screened here two weeks ago, then late last week he was in the country on a promo tour for his new album "The Afterlove" (TW-9), and then last Sunday night he too sang at The Logie Awards (23rd April), which helps this to become his eleventh Top 100 chart entry.

* #73 - Night With You by MØ is the seventh Top 100 entry for the Danish singer born Karen Marie Aafaad Ørsted, all of her recent entries (Kamikaze, Don't Leave and Final Song) all due on her forthcoming second album (no date or title known as yet).

------------------------------//-------------------------------
"÷ (Divide)" by Ed Sheeran delivers an eighth consecutive week at No.1 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week, becoming Ed's equal longest run at the top, as his second album "x (Multiply)" spent eight broken weeks (from six runs) at the top previously.

The last album to spend eight weeks in a row at the top was Adele's "21" set during it's third of five runs at the top from its sixteenth to twenty-third weeks in the No.1 spot from the 5th of September to the 24th of October in 2011. The second "21" run was for eleven weeks from mid-June to late August, whilst the longest continual run at the top during this decade is the thirteen week run for the Pink best of "Greatest Hits... So Far" (from 22-Oct, 2010). Ed Sheeran now moves up the list for "Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums 1965-2017' from equal 35th to now equal 32nd, as he has now racked up seventeen overall weeks at No.1, placing him alongside Bon Jovi (10 #1's), The Seekers (one #1) and John Lennon and Kings of Leon (also 3 #1's).

The first of three new entries to the Top 10 this week is lead by the debut EP for local singer Amy Shark entitled "Night Thinker", coming in at No.2, the six track set featuring her two current charting singles in "Adore" (HP-3, TW-27) and "Weekends" (HP/TW-53). This is followed at No.3 by the soundtrack to the second film "Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.2", entering four places higher than the original did in mid-August of 2014, and that first volume is up ten places to No.15 this week, having originally peaked at No.2 in its third week on the charts. This new edition features seventies track from ELO, Sweet, Fleetwood Mac, Glen Campbell's "Southern Nights" (#1 in the US this week in 1977), George Harrison, Cheap Trick and Cat Stevens amongst its 14 tracks.

NEW ENTRIES:
* #20 (LP#8) - 8 by Incubus is the eighth studio album for the US rock band, and their first since their July 2011 seventh set "If Not Now, When?" (HP-10), and overall this becomes the bands seventh entry (six studios and one best of), with six of those seven albums reaching the Top 20 ("Make Yourself", LP#3, their first entry, climbed to No.24).

* #22 (LP#11) - Love and War by Brad Paisley is his first album in almost three years, and becomes his seventh chart entry here in Australia and fourth Top 30 album.

* #23 (LP#2) - Gutful by Bad//Dreems is the second album and entry for the Adelaide band, with the new set landing ten places higher than their first entry "Dogs at Bay" (HP-33, Sept 2015).

* #24 (L#7) - Live in The Netherlands by Xavier Rudd is his seventh live album and second to chart here in Australia, as his third live set "Good Spirit" debuted and peaked at No.29 in April of 2005, and overall this becomes Xavier's ninth chart entry (seven studios and two live), all of which have reached the Top 30 or higher.

* #26 (LP#3) - You Are We by While She Sleeps is the English metalcore's first entry to the ARIA Albums Chart, and their third studio set.

* #46 (LP#5) - Tears on the Dancefloor by Steps is the reformed bands fifth studio album and first in five years, and their first to chart for this century in Australia, as the bands first two albums are their only previous entries in "Step One" (HP-5, peaked Oct 1998) and "Steptacular" (HP-25, Nov 1999).

* #84 (GH#14) - The Very Best of by Linda Ronstadt becomes the fourth compilation of Linda's hits to chart in Australia, this new set is already Gold (●) in sales, with her previous entries being in 1977 (HP-22), Volume 2 in 1980 (HP-53) and an overall "Greatest Hits" set in 1981 (HP-41).

* #97 (LP#10) - Be Myself by Sheryl Crow is her tenth studio album and her ninth chart entry (eight studios and one best of), and all but one of her five entries for this centry have only hit the Top 90 and stayed for a single week or two, so maybe this one will climb next week.

Didn't see that coming! Yay to ABBA's record being beaten, thanks Eddy!
Wow! Just wow. I am surprised that #7 digital + #2 streaming beats #1 digital + #3 streaming; must be a big lead for Shape over Galway on streaming.

Also surprised James Blunt couldn't crack the top fifty with his sales.
15 weeks in the top 20 is a good run but to spend those weeks at the top? That's insane. In any case, if ed sheeran getting a record breaking run was what it needed to take to ensure Galway Girl didn't hit #1... it's worth it. Hopefully GG can continue to miss out - even if that's at the expense of a 16th week and beyond

Also, entering may we've only had 3 #1s this year.
I think the streaming numbers below the top 2 are very close, Drake was #3 for the week on Spotify, but he's only #7 overall, despite Spotify having the lion's share. We might all be underestimating Shape's streaming for the same reason people were in the UK, it has a bunch of remixes etc on Spotify that may not be in the top 200 there, but in such a close outcome, they make the margins.
I hope any articles discussing Ed's record highlight the fact that when ABBA spent 14 weeks at #1 back in 1976, people actually had to leave their homes and fork over a $2 note to buy a copy of "Fernando", whereas now, Ed is being kept at #1 by kids merely listening to the song on a streaming service (multiple times), rather than paying money for it. I know the world is different now and that it's about music "consumption" (rather than "sales"), but there really is no comparison between spending months and months at #1 purely based on sales, and spending the last several weeks of your #1 tenure based on how many times people were actually listening to your track online. Congrats to Ed, though. I find him to be grossly overrated myself ("Shape of You" isn't even his best song, let alone worthy of being the longest running #1 in Australian chart history), but kudos to him.
Of the two songs, I prefer Fernando by a very wide margin. I'm just pleased to see the record broken because it's something I thought would never happen with the way the chart has changed over the past decade. Having followed the chart for 25 years now it's exciting to see a run like this just because it's never happened; that record has been in place since quite a while before I was even born. It's amazing to see.

I just wish it were a song I liked more. Castle On The Hill would have been perfect. Shape is fine, but it's not even in the conversation of Ed songs I like best, even if that conversation consists of twenty.
At this stage, I just want an Australian Artist to make #1 this year but now it just seems so unlikely!

just over 230 chart points/sales between #1 & #2 singles this week.
bulion, do you know why (in this last four weeks) Greatest Hits (Neil Young) ranked higher than Harvest on Catalogue but not on Top Albums?
I don't know why it isn't within the Top 100, last week his GH sold 248 copies, whilst Harvest sold just 206.
Warner probably hasn't allowed Neil Young's Greatest Hits to re-enter the main Top Albums Chart. It happens quite often with catalogue albums.

Streaming will be incorporated into the Albums Chart from May 14th according to Herald Sun:

"THE Australian album chart is about to change forever.

ARIA will now include data from streaming services as well as physical sales and digital downloads to compile Australia’s most popular albums each week.

The adoption of the new technology will take place from Sunday, May 14.

Major territories including the US and UK already factor in plays on streaming services when they calculate the Top 100 albums each week.

“The ARIA chart is where people come to see what Australia is listening to,” ARIA CEO Dan Rosen said. “More and more Australians are listening to music via streaming so the ARIA chart needs to reflect that.”

The ARIA singles chart already factors in streams of tracks from Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and Google Play to work out the Top 100 each week — using data from both paid and free subscribers.

ARIA will use the same ratio for the albums chart as it does the singles chart — 175 streams counts as one stream.

It’s a complicated equation. Listeners don’t need to stream an entire album, with ARIA using data compiled from streams of 10 tracks of one album.

Rosen uses Ed Sheeran’s chart dominating album ÷ (Divide) as an example.

“There’s 15 songs on the Ed Sheeran album. You take the top 10 songs from that album in terms of streaming numbers, you take out the top two which would probably be Shape Of You and Galway Girl so the album chart isn’t skewed by a big hit single. You take the average of the next eight tracks, put two back in and divide the 10 songs by 175. Then you add in the physical and digital sales.”

ARIA have been running a test chart for a year to see what impact streaming would have on the turnover of albums and also the steady influx of new releases.

Many believe the use of streaming in the singles chart has meant songs spend longer at No. 1 — Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You just smashed ABBA’s 31-year-old record by clocking up 15 weeks on top.

“Certain artists do better on streaming services than others but the test chart wasn’t massively different,” Rosen said. “It hasn’t been as big an issue as we thought. It was one of the reasons we waited, we didn’t want this to unfairly prejudice Australian artists and the model we’re implementing is the best possible model to ensure Australian artists have the best chance of success on the chart.”

Streaming will now also be used to calculate gold (35,000 sales) and platinum (70,000) certificates and will count for all genres."
Glad to see that ARIA will be adopting the UK methodology for this. I knew it was a matter of time and was hoping they wouldn't muck it up. I do worry if in the long term I'll see a lot of my favourite artists struggling with lack of streams much like how it is on the singles chart, but I think this will revitalise the album chart in a necessary fashion.
That sounds fair enough for the album charts. Let's hope some revision is on the way soon for the non-singles in the Singles chart.
To see if I understand properly: So it's most streamed tracks 3-10 averaged out and then divided by ten? Then applies the streaming ratio? "Put two back in" is only for the dividing by ten, and doesn't effect the average resulting from 3-10, right? How will this work for EPs such as Amy Shark's, which has only six tracks. Obviously all six will be used for the average, which might then allow the effect of a massive single to be an influence, but then will their average be divided by six or by ten?
I was wondering when ARIA were going to implement the 'joys' of streaming points to the albums chart. There's no longer any FOMO for the albums chart now. *Dave Hughes voice* Good on youuu, ARIA!
I'm not sure if any special case is made for EPs, since it's not mentioned on the article, I'd guess that they wouldn't. It's kind of tricky territory because you can look at it another way, and if they took the hard average (minus the big two) and an artist (like Calvin Harris idk) were to just cram hits onto an EP, it'd be easier to abuse the system. Though one could argue that at the same time we have Drake in the US currently abusing their system by making his recent projects way longer than they need to be because more tracks just means more stuff to stream.

I was testing some numbers last night and for what it's worth, if it were last week's chart, Sheeran probably gets about 2K stream-equivalent album sales, Kendrick would get a little less than that, and the next biggest album at the moment would be More Life which would only get about 500 extra. From how I've seen it play out in the UK, it'll likely be a case where albums without hits can still chart high, but the albums that are high in the conversation will be shifted up a bit.
Oh here we go, ARIA published an article themselves this morning: http://www.ariacharts.com.au/news/2017/audio-streams-to-be-integrated-into-aria-albums-ch

key to note: "The two tracks attracting most streams are reduced to the level of the average of the next eight highest streamed tracks associated with the album (or all tracks where an album has fewer than ten tracks)."
If anyone's interested, I made a mock-up of the graph on that page using Ed Sheeran's real Spotify figures from the latest weekly Spotify chart: http://i.imgur.com/Ja7zbwy.png The #3-#10 average is 276,624 plays, which amounts to 1,581 sales (assuming they don't change the 175:1 ratio whenever they feel like it), plus however much from Apple Music and other services.

Regarding EPs, the ARIA article says they add up the plays for the top up-to-10 tracks (with the top 2 adjusted down), then divide by 10, then divide by 175; it doesn't simplify that into just taking the #3-#10 average and dividing by 175. So I believe Amy Shark's EP would get divided by 10, not 6, and The Chainsmokers' Collage EP wouldn't have benefited from having 80% of its tracks be charting hits. However I'm not sure if the top 2 on an EP would contribute to the average they're reduced to; I guess not, but it can be read both ways.

I'm glad ARIA are doing this, and I hope it'll help the albums we can verifiably see get heaps of listens (DAMN., ÷, More Life, Starboy, 'x' forever until the end of time) succeed, over the likes of covers and Christmas albums that sell highly by appealing to older demographics who don't use streaming and have more disposable income to impulse buy CDs, which can easily be listened to just once or left unopened, and have zero cultural impact, as well as albums that only sell to niche fanbases and disappear after the first week. I mean, I'm not a big album chart follower, but it always ticks me off when I see something like this week's chart, where 'A Tribute To Mario Lanza' (with a grand total of 1,734 Spotify plays and 39,948 YouTube views on its biggest track) sits above Kendrick's hugely impactful album.
Ah, Rosen explained it poorly in the Herald Sun article above. So the two most popular tracks are scored at the average of 3-10 and then the scores of all ten are added with the conversion after that.

Kendrick still didn't have a physical release for the latest chart; if that was out I'm sure he'd have been ahead of the Mario Lanza Tribute. Physical sales do still have some relevance to the albums chart, so maybe be more ticked off at the release of physical Damn being so much later rather than at people buying another album.
It'll be interesting to see how DAMN. & More Life go once they get a full release. In general though they do represent a serious gap in market representation on the chart as rap fans are much less likely to buy albums but they'll generate crazy streaming numbers. I'm something of an oddity for having bought Kendrick's last 4 projects
I think Damn has sold reasonably well physically since it was released last Friday. It won't pull crazy huge numbers, but there would still be plenty of fans who want a physical copy.
Yeah what I meant is once it's represented on the chart lol. I think More Life is out this Friday too but I might be wrong. But yeah, I expect a slight rebound but nothing major like say Radiohead shooting back from out of the top 40 to #1 in the UK last year
Fair point, I'd forgotten about the delayed physical release and not for the first time
Not sure if you meant tomorrow or the 12th, but More Life isn't out tomorrow as far as I'm aware.
I meant tomorrow but lol not surprised, keeps getting delayed
"This ensures that albums with one or two hit singles do not distort the performance of an album within the albums chart."

...but three or more hit singles makes distorted performance fine? I don't think it's a bad change to make overall, but the key issue with including streams for albums has always been the dividing line between the singles and albums chart, and I'm not sure how well these provisions will actually protect that. Wouldn't it be better to disallow plays for singles? Forgive me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that the label nominates a song as eligible for the singles chart - wouldn't excluding streams of those songs from the albums chart discourage nominating every album track as a single?

I know it's a little reminiscent of the short-lived change in 2012 re: instant grat tracks (in terms of trying to reflect a division that's simply not as clear-cut these days), but I do think double-counting of the same streams is a problem, and it seems to me the solution would be allowing streams to count for either singles or towards the album, but not both (maybe with something similar for sales of individual album tracks in terms of having them count towards the album chart on a 10:1 ratio rather than the singles chart).
You kind of make a point there Fenrik, where should the inclusion of streaming points for Singles and Album charts start and stop, and likewise for non-single song unit sales. Maybe it is too hard to easily categorise as one or the other. I hope ARIA are trying their best to work through this issue, but in my opinion there is still some work to be done.
I think in terms of measuring album popularity through streams, there's eventually going to have to be some degree of simplification that's not going to appropriately cover every individual case. Simply because there do not exist the resources/desire to determine it. So what we have is an admittedly entirely arbitrary system since they're really only looking at 8 tracks (in Sheeran's case, Castle On The Hill, Happier, Perfect, Dive, Supermarket Flowers, What Do I Know, New Man & How Would You Feel). If you stream one of those 8 tracks, you're affecting the album chart, if you stream a different track, you're not affecting it, even if the actions are clearly identical. But then I feel this frustration every time I buy a track and it's not even counted in the chart.

I guess the sense in this system is that generally artists won't have more than 2 active singles from an album in a chart, and even if they have a 3rd or 4th, it's still somewhat negligible (if an artist maintains 3 singles in the top 50 on streaming, that's just about 150 sales, that's it), so it just uses what would be the normal case as a model and basis for all cases.

Hopefully this means Rihanna can get more longevity on her next album. Anti's quick drop was surprising considering her past chart runs but then again her singles were much less succesful this time.

Anyway I'm fine with this change as long as it doesn't end up as extreme as the US where More Life is selling 4-6k but estimated at 65-70k due to streaming
