The Spotify charts are a bit messed up right now, they don't update in many places at the right times. Like on Spotify Charts the chart being shown is from the 28th Feb still.

Actually, the top 15 took the whole page. I would have to scroll down and leave out #1 to see #16. mad.gif

What happened to the phrase "people don't listen to albums"

At least 500 000 Brits just did.

Hopefully every song is explicit and they have to skip na who am I kidding

In theory though if they skip every ed song they have time to play everything else

Ain't it cheaper buying the album instead of streaming it
I don't mind Ed's music, but this just makes a mockery of the singles chart.

This is why, I insist, there should be a rule that if a user streamed more than a certain percentage of tracks per album all those tracks should only count to the album chart.

I feel like the ONLY person that doesn't mind the album tracks in the top 40. The only real problem is the name of 'singles chart', in the streaming era, it's much easier for people to just listen to what they like on a mass scale and the charts are reflecting that. There's no denying that these tracks ARE in the top 40 most popular tracks of that week and therefore have a rightful place in the top 40 in my opinion. It may make the charts more boring but they've been dreadfully dull for a few years now and at least they're being accurate (unlike Billboard getting rid of old tracks in the bottom half of their chart). What's the point of having a chart if the compiler is manipulating what can and cannot chart when they feel like it 🤷 Ż\_(ツ)_/Ż

I mean, it's fine for a week, maybe two. But my concern is that this could last for months.

I agree Josh, if album tracks are individually being streamed more than anything else then why not recognise that (as long as it doesn't mean Lorde misses the top 40 teresa.gif), and making a rule to stop this would necessarily be somewhat arbitrary. The chart isn't supposed to be exciting, it's supposed to be a list of the most purchased and streamed somgs, which includes songs that aren't 'official singles'.

It's called an "album". It belongs in the album chart. Streaming rules are pathetic. Stick it in a handy passive streaming-playlist and that's measuring popularity of actual tracks? No it isn't. It's measuring curiosity and passive radio listening.

People do NOT individually choose these tracks, they choose a batch of pre-prepared (or album) tracks, and that includes the streaming charts.

The official singles chart is much less accurate than the sales chart. Always has been. Just wait for christmas again when those songs beloved of teenagers like Jose Feliciano's Feliz Navidad pop in. Yeah, older people have never heard of it either.....
