Re: CHART RESULTS: HOTSPOT

Where is this #6 in Canada coming from?

The official Billboard 100 for Canada had Hotspot as a new entry at #61 last week, which seems far more realistic than the list that shows it at #6?

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I absolutely adore “Monkey Business”, can’t stop playing it! I so severely cringed when I first heard it that for only one disastrous (and shameful) moment, I thought throwing all my PSB collection out of the window to the street. Now I am addicted to the song; cannot stop playing it five or six ti...

Re: Hotspot ratings

I give it a very solid 7.

With Decide instead of Wedding it would be an 8 ;)

Anyone got the US sale numbers?
Pet Shop Boys post their fourth No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, as Hotspot opens atop the survey dated Feb. 8. The set starts with 9,000 equivalent album units, driven almost entirely by album sales, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Yes it is. The official PSB site mentions it!

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

The fact that the last three albums have had consistent sales is a great thing, it shows that their fan base (though not huge) is holding steady, even though album sales as a whole are dropping through the floor. Th fact that they can get 15K+ people in the UK to purchase something that they can ea...

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

Its fair to say that PSB's sales reduced significantly after Very. That was their last album that really sold to the masses before they became a fanbase only act. So here are the opening week sales of their albums since Very. Which kinda proves promotion does have an effect... 23,732 Bilingual (#4,...

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

Well Fundamental and Yes sold more than Nightlife and Release. Which indicates the fanbase is up and down and also youre right about promotion. Fundamental and Yes had heavy promotion and coverage. Youre also right about Parlophone not dropping PSB. Thats just bollocks. I spoke about the last 10 ye...

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

Yes speculation, but I'm speculating that they are not getting much interest from non PSBs fans. PSBs are not a young group, you either like them or you don't. If you are in the don't category, no matter how many TV appearances or 5 star reviews they get, you aren't going to buy their records. It's...

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

Spot on. Looking at the album sales from Elysium onwards it really doesn't make much difference, if at all, you're right there. They would have likely sold 10k albums anyway even without any promotion and still charted in the top 10. How could you possibly know what any of these albums would have s...
