That will bring them the number 1 for sure. A well deserved one. Happy for Gaga also.

This is surely a desperate attempt to get the number 1. I bet they wouldn't have discounted if they weren't so close to number 1. The Cure has only been out 4 days, whats the idea. Would it not be better if it was discounted in a month or something like Symphony when its closer to peaking and higher on Spotify (unless this is going to be a long term situation?). I don't get what the need is already, you'd think it was falling out of the top 40 after a week or something its still number 3.

Why not capitalise on potential new sales so early into the songs chart life? I still don't think they expected this to be sticking around the top end of the charts like it has done and it was only made A- for Coachella and B- as a thanks for the fans etc.. It's a smart move if they plan on it actually doing something. This way it'll be top end of the charts and radio will have to take notice/it sets her up well for a new era.

And in regards to Clean Bandit being discounted, weren't 'Tears' and 'Rockabye' discounted fairly into their chart lives too?

I don't think Rockabye got discounted! I really don't blame them for discounting this though, if it leads to another #1 for them, why shouldn't they?

But radios don't really look at i-tunes anymore do they? The bad thing about discounting this early is if its only discounted for a week it will then drop off after a week.

Capital certainly look at iTunes! More than they really should considering how big a part Spotify plays in the chart these days.

Yeah Capital most certainly do and I am sure Radio 1 do for pop acts like Lady Gaga when it comes to their playlist! (Less so for bands like You Me At Six/Kings Of Leon etc.. though)

Cascada for a surprise hit please! (Never gonna happen - but 'Playground' is genuinely the best thing since at LEAST 'Glorious'!)

It's been a huge hit either, so it can hardly be called desperate. It's just another box to tick off. It deserved #1 in the first place.

Had they discounted last week it may have been that little bit extra they may fall short of later today
