Single 5: How Ya Doin' Ft. Missy Elliot

Salute

1st Single: Move
2nd Single: Towers

2nd Single: Love Me Like You
ALBUM
3rd Single: Secret Love Song
4th Single: Weird People / OMG (Slightly slicker radio edits)

Salute

1st: Move
2nd: Towers
3rd: Nothing Feels Like You
4th: About The Boy (Although if we are considering the time of release, I would change the order of this with NFLY so the latter got the BGT performance slot)
5

Get Weird
1st: Black Magic
2nd: Love Me Like You (European/Australian single)/ Grown (International)
3rd: Secret Love Song
4th: Hair or A.D.I.D.A.S (I don't think any of those would be huge though)

Your Salute era is pefect, it's the exact singles I would've opted for. 'Towers' would've been sublime on the radio. I'd perhaps put 'Salute' before 'Move' as another pre-album single, possibly released in Summer. I imagine it would've fared much better chart-wise if that was the case; not only cause it'd be pre-album, but it probably would've received much stronger radio support too.

For DNA, I'd just forego a slow-tempo song entirely. I do enjoy CYL occasionally, but it was a bit of a comedown following 'Wings' and 'DNA'. I'd go with:
1st Single: Wings
2nd Single: DNA
3rd Single: Red Planet (recently revisited DNA and this is such a huge moment. Plus, it sounds slightly reminiscent of DLG. Would've been a nice tribute).
4th Single: How Ya Doin' (with a proper Sunday release, rather than the hasty mid-week one that squandered its peak).

I agree that Get Weird has been perfect thus far. I hope they don't ruin that by releasing 'Lightning', as their recent social media activity seems to be suggesting. I sound like a broken record, but 'Grown' seems like the logical next choice, either remixed or with a feature added (or both, a la HYD). I think 4 singles is sufficient. I see where you're coming from with 'Hair' as a 5th given that it's already charted, but I can't see the 4th doing massively well, and two consecutive 'flops' may seem a little questionable. I'd rather they took a break and returned with a killer lead for album 4 (or perhaps a re-release).

It would be between Red Plant and Madhouse for the DNA replacement, both are strong.


Lots of fans on Twitter see Love Me Like You's peak and say it wasn't a good single choice. But I still fully back that as a choice. The reason it was such a good single choice is that it fitted in so perfectly with all the radio demographics. I really don't see Black Magic being as good as an album seller, despite being a huge #1.

'Love Me Like You' kept the album selling imo, so I agree with it's single choice too.

DNA:
1. Wings
2. DNA
-Album-
3. How Ya Doin ft Missy Elliot
4. Change Your Life

(Don't really have any complaints in hindsight for DNA singles, maybe red planet, or stereo soldier, but I think 4 was a good number debut album. Only thing I would have changed is How Ya Doin first because I feel like it could have made more of an impact)

Salute:
1. Move
2. Towers
-Album-
3. Competition (Sports Relief song)
4. Salute
5. About the Boy

(To me they got more wrong singles wise this era. little me is great, but definitely album track for me, towers is better, and better for single 2. competition screams Sports Relief single to me, so as much as I love Nothing Feels Like You, would have went there, and About the Boy is a jam, so would have loved to see it as a single)

Get Weird:
1. Black Magic
2. Love Me Like You
-Album-
3. Secret Love Song
4. Hair (with another feature)
5. ADIDAS

(I agree, they've gotten everything right this era so far, and there are many other moves they could make single for wise, that I would also be at peace with, bar 1 choice, which is obvious my opinion on)

LMLY has sold pretty decently as well. Anything that followed Black Magic was going to be overshadowed anyway.

The only thing I would have changed would be Nothing Feels Like You instead of Word Up! and then possibly These Four Walls or Towers to finish the Salute era before Black Magic.

The big one for me is 'Red Planet' instead of 'Change Your Life' for DNA. I feel 'Word Up' kind of made the Salute era feel a bit disjointed, but I think they did alright with it aside from that. 'Nothing Feels Like You' slotted in somewhere would have been nice but no biggie.

Wasn't there talk of a Minaj collab/they'd expressed desire to collab with her?

Firstly- hi! My first ever post on this forum

Secondly (an on topic)- It seems to be universally agreed that Nothing Feels Like You should've been a single instead of Word Up. At the Get Weird live stream the girls were asked which song they wish had been a single and even they chose Nothing Feels Like You.

I seem to be in the minority that actually like Little Me but I would've changed the release date. Seriously, who in their right mind thought releasing a single on 30 December was a good idea?

This may sound controversial, but I think Secret Love Song is better without Jason Derulo. His verse takes away some of the original meaning of the song and a lot of Mixers I speak to on Twitter seem to prefer their version. If that had been the single (and it had some actual promotion) it could've been up there with Move in terms of chart peak and sales

Hi Matt! Welcome to the forum, I hope you stick around. biggrin.gif

I don't think it's controversial to prefer SLS part 2, I think loads of fans seem to agree. I'm in two minds about it though, as I feel like Jason's name probably attracted a lot more attention around the single and helped its performance a lot.
