This is another of my observation threads/me being a chart stan and getting excited heehee.gif

But GUESS WHAT THIS WEEK COULD BE? It'll most probably be the first week for over a year to have more than one new entry in the top 10, which is such a rarity in the current sales/streams climate.

We could even see three or four, with the possibilty of Touch or Oops by Little Mix reaching the top ten.

So my question for you is, is this the best chart week of the year? What's been your favourite chart week of the year? AND will next week be a better week with more potential new entries from The Hospices Choir and Jo Cox's Friends?

The Christmas chart is always the best of the year for me, so Friday 23rd one this year.

Christmas chart for me!

It's not just about NEs for me but nice climbers for songs growing in popularity as they are discovered by more people hence why I'm a fan of OAOS - it produces the best songs at the top!

I like OA/OS. I just really wish new songs were given loads of promotion straight from the off - there's something so exciting about having new entries high up in the charts.

This is it, but as you can see radio 1 are strange when it comes to playing new music still like a slow build up even if a song is top 10 already.

But they are improving as can be seen by A list additions which only rarely occurred before 2016, but they generally happen with artists they love!

My favourite week would be either:
- When One Dance was knocked from the top spot
- When SOTME went straight in at number 1

Christmas chart weeks are usually boring these days due to predictable X factor being no1 and a slush of Christmas songs reentering. It's always the same songs reentering too. Why can't we have a new original Christmas song doing well? It doesn't happen very often.

There are two which stand out for me this year:

- The week where 7 Years, Fast Car, Ex's & Oh's etc entered (but mainly 7 Years), although that was marred slightly by Get Ugly & Work entering as well

- The Week where Tom Odell, The Neales, The Stone Roses 'Beautiful Thing', This One's For You & Hotter Than Hell entered (but then again, One Dance was at #1 then)

Louis Tomlinson is the only top 10 contender I see this week. Who are the others?

Zayn & Taylor will struggle without Spotify. X Factor Winner will struggle without many streams and no CD.
