Yes / Love - International chart #'s

#1 Post by German PSB »

With the release of both the single Love etc, and the full album Yes ahead, I really hope for some good chart positions around the world. They deserve it!
The best sales will obviously be in the UK.
I really hope for the 5th #1 single there.
Love has the potential for that for sure.
Yes might become the second #1 album (is it right that Very was the only #1 album there yet?) in the UK.
Here in Germany, Love starts getting some Airplay, and I'm sure the album will debut in the Top10.
I will post the numbers/ positions from here in this thread. It would be cool to collect all the (hopefully fantastic) numbers from around the world here.

18 days ahaed of its release, Yes etc is #13 at the amazon.uk album charts, and #1 at the preorder charts!
The Love singles are #2 and #5 at the amazon single charts :up:
Go for it, PSB!!!

I'd believe that in units sold, Germany is their biggest market, not UK? Gemany is regarded as the biggest market in Europe. But I may be wrong..

Where have you been the last 15 years?. :lol:

I think you are being ironic or very optimistic.

Given the current singles market in the UK, I'll be glad if they enter the Top 20.

But even if "Love etc." became their most popular single in two decades, I still doubt that they can beat Calvin Harris singles, which is released the same day.

I guess I'm very optimistic :wink:
Does anyone have the charts entries from their previous albums in the UK?

Maybe it's too soon but "Yes" doesn't appear on the itunes top 100 yet. On amazon the double edition is in the top 5 but the normal edition is #36 right now.

Yet? Not "anymore"? Didn't everyone preorder after the Brits hype? :D

It is really annoying that the radio stations in Slovakia ignore their fabulous new single Love etc. Although I can hear a PSB song on the radio more often now, but they always play their older hits. I wonder how is this in other countries (apart from the UK of course).

On German Radio, Love etc is getting more and more airplay.
After last weeks #74, it is this weeks #55 on the radio-charts.
With the album being released next friday, Love should get a lot more airplay next week.

UK: #14, #27
Ireland: #40

I'm expecting a Top 5 position in Germany.
