Re: Is there any possibility for a Number 1 album? Look at the list of releases

Looks like streaming is spoiling the party. J Hus album is number 1 on Apple Music and his songs are all over the top 20. I don’t use Spotify but I guess it’s the same picture.

Another peeve: just 42 minutes.
It’s not the length that counts, it’s the girth.
And Hotspot is well girthy.

Thanks for posting! Well, it's pretty much over, the other Top 5 artists all "sold" over a thousand copies in a day (does this count streaming too?), and this J Hus person will be #1 next time. dd5d12bc4164a2c709c9e9737d13cd9e[1].jpg They're performing in the national tv awards on ITV tonight.

Re: The Problems With Hotspot

Putting "you are the one" as second track right after "Will O" feels misplaced. Just when the album gets going, they put the brakes on.
