I wonder if any of their singles will re-enter the chart, it happened when their singles finally were available to download so I wouldn't rule it out.

Just recently, songs have needed ~3k to make the top 200, so it's problematic..

300k streams in a week is very possible for some top songs if the hype is there. But yeah, I can't see anything troubling the top-40. Maybe low top-100 for 1-2 songs at most?

Oh my god YES, I'm so excited for this! I'm an avid Spotify user and it always annoyed me that I couldn't listen to their stuff on there because they're my favourite band.

I don't really see any of their songs troubling the chart though! I remember the huge hype around their songs being added to iTunes in 2010 and 'Hey Jude' was the biggest impact from this, just about scraping the top 40.

Google announces,
The Beatles' iconic albums will be available for purchase and streaming on Google Play Music on December 24th.
Hope we get some of those Google Play £2.99 bargains. Hey Jude for 19p?

If Google Play can sell them then they are losing their exclusive rights.
What happened with iTunes last time is that they advertised the fact you can download tracks and the tracks that were advertised sold the most. I have not seen adverts much for streaming sites before, so I don't think it will have a big impact as far as streaming is concerned. If the other download sites have them that is a different kettle of fish. There are loads of older people who download from the likes of Amazon, more so than iTunes and they will want certain Beatles tracks.

I'd love for this to result in a lot of their songs re-entering the top 40

iTunes added their music in 2010, so they probably had a five year exclusive deal which has now run out.

Seeing as the chart is announced tomorrow and the sales cut off is tonight... yes.


It would need the all time streaming record and then some for getting anywhere near any kind of #1.
