Uptown Funk is literally unstoppable right now, with 130k sold last week and it's set for a fifth week with there being no competition this week. Here's some of the future releases that could make an impact.

19th January 2015

Meghan Trainor – Lips Are Movin

26th January 2015

Fergie – L.A.LOVE (LaLa)
Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Rhymes
Karen Harding – Say Something
Luvbug – Revive
Selena Gomez – The Heart Wants What It Wants

2nd February 2015

AronChupa – I’m An Albatraoz
Mike Mago & Dragonette – Outlines

9th February 2015

Bakermat - Teach Me
Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora – Doing It
Chris Brown ft. Tyga – AYO
DJ Fresh feat. Ella Eyre – Gravity
Imagine Dragons – I Bet My Life
Ne-Yo – Coming With You
Sheppard – Geronimo

16th February 2015

The Avener – Fade Out Lines
Axwell Λ Ingrosso - Something New
Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do
Mr. Probz – Nothing Really Matters

23rd February 2015

Disciples – They Don’t Know
Madonna – Living For Love
Omi – Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)


I can't see Meghan passing 100k and at this rate Uptown Funk will still be selling that much per week, so I could see it remaining at #1 until Ellie Goulding releases. Which makes it 9 weeks. But of course we could get an big OA/OS release anytime soon, or Hozier could climb to #1 (please no), so who knows. I'll remain optimistic though and predict 9.

Who would have thought if Mark Ronson could get 9 weeks at #1, after all those 1 weekers at #1 last year laugh.gif

Sadly I can't see Meghan knocking it off either sad.gif guess #2 will have to do which isn't bad either but on terms of how long I say another 2-4 weeks maybe.

I was expecting Meghan to take the #1 spot but I'd welcome another week for 'Uptown Funk!' any day!

I'd love 'I’m An Albatraoz' to take off and get the #1! Either way it needs to be this year's novelty dance song following '#SELFIE', 'I Love It', 'Bom Bom'/'Gangnam Style', 'Loca People' and 'We No Speak Americano'. biggrin.gif

I think AronChupa will be the one to knock Uptown Funk off.

there is a serious lack of big new releases this year so far though, plus our chart is slowly becoming like Billboard so it won't be long before long running #1s are a common occurrence

I'm voting 9 weeks until Ellie Goulding, a few in there like AronChupa & The Avener have #1 potential but I don't think they've gotten the support to do so without being pushed back, and I don't expect some huge OA/OS release at this time of the year. (I hope so though)

In case Ellie gets pushed back or something Cheerleader should be able to do it the week after.

I voted for 10 weeks by accident, I meant 9 weeks (made a little mistake with my calculations)
I also think love me like you do will knock it off but I hope Meghan and Fergie will and both have a little chance

I've notice that as well, I'm still having doubts Meghan not getting there, but Mark Ronson'e sales have decreased week on week now, I think he can manage another 100k next week after that its going to be below 100k.

The AronChupa track is alright, but its a bit like marmite to me, could be a dark horse.

Something else is bound to crawl out of the woodwork, unless an old track appears from the Voice auditions.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ne-Yo manages to get to #1 with his new song, so I'll say 8 weeks, unless there's a surprise release.

Also, there's singles from Kelly Clarkson/Leona Lewis/Rihanna/Adele coming up soonish I believe. Plus I'm sure there are some others I'm missing out.

Edit: Wait isn't Meghan a shoe-in for #1 with "Lips Are Moving"? The pre-order is #88 already with a week to go and it's doing really well on streaming - so it could only be 5 weeks.

I think Lips Are Movin can still get there (despite it struggling a little on pre-orders atm). I see L.A.Love reaching #1 on iTunes once it's out, and i'd say there's a slight chance of getting there officially

I'm An Albatraoz will undoubtedly be a BIG contender for #1 at some point, though there's every chance they'll just keep pushing the release date back due to lack of radioplay at the moment (though I doubt it'll even need much radio support to really take off)~

Eight weeks I think. Love it to be AronChupa but I can see it being Sheppard that knocks off Mark and Bruno (either that or gooddelta being one of about three Buzzjackers I know IRL is warping my mind)

If Meghan can't do it, I say it'll stay there until Ellie's released (that is most definitely a 100% certain #1). AronChupa might be a long running top 5 hit or climb there at a later stage?

I thought Meghan would knock it off, but it's struggling on pre-orders and I'm not feeling any hype for it at all, if Uptown Funk is still selling 100k+ then, then I can't see her matching that.

Unless something comes out of the blue, I'm gonna say 8 weeks because I feel some of those songs out on the 9th of February could stand a chance of number 1 (Ne-Yo most likely, but Charli XCX/Imagine Dragons could maybe challenge too), and if not, I'm certain Ellie Goulding will knock it off the week after.

5 weeks? I think.

But I haven't really taken into account the competition for future weeks: unsure.gif

At the moment, I think uptown Funk will *just* pip Meghan off from the top spot. It'll likely stay there until Ellie.
