Is "positions" bigger than ROM in the US?

Recommended Posts

quitedangerous

I remember Liddos, saying that ROM is Ariana's first single to spend 4 weeks in the top 10 since 7 rings and how Gaga gave Ariana a hit, but now Ariana has spent 3 weeks, soon to be 4 weeks, in the top 3 with her solo lead single "positions". Why is that? Is it shaping up to be bigger than ROM? Discuss.

there's a lot of adjectives to describe ROM and timeless is certainly not one of them

Well

In the US, positions is without any doubts bigger. Just look at the chart run :deadbanana4:

positions: #1 - #2 - #2

ROM: #1 - #5 - #10

Lemme remind that both of these songs had an album boost in the second week :gaycat2:

 

Now, let's take a look at the UK and Australia charts :gaycat5:

ROM - #1 for one week in the UK, in Australia only #2

positions - #1 for three weeks, the fourth week is on lock, #1 in Australia for two weeks

 

Looks like the winner here is Ariana, oh wow, oh wow.

Sis, this thread is embarrassing. To answer your question, positions was released when points of the top 10 are really low (you only need +200 points to be top 3 :rip:) and Rain On Me didn't have that luck. Anyway we will see in the future which one has the most units, chart runs are not a good indicator since it depends too much on the timing.

the points are low because the rules have changed

Positions is not only bigger in the US but across the globe as well. ROM might have been bigger on some Eastern European airplay charts though, I’ll give it that but certainly not in the world’s biggest music market where it couldn’t even go #1 on AM if I remember correctly. :cm:

 

Spotify 

positions:
Week 1 — 54,439,354
Week 2 — 43,688,348
Week 3 — 35,815,092

Week 4 — 35,039,693

 

Total — 168,982,487

 

Rain On Me:
Week 1 — 49,289,915
Week 2 — 36,377,369
Week 3 — 26,969,617

Week 4 — 25,512,314

 

Total — 138,149,214

Do you have a link please? I'm interested in that! I thought it was only the bundles (which affects mostly the Billboard 200, not so much the Hot 100)?

sis bundles mattered a lot, that's bassically where everyone's pure sales came from, since iTunes are practically dead and you need at least 30k sales to go #1 there for a full week, so with them having way less impact in the Hot 100/Hot 200 the points have plummeted for everyone, but the songs are still huge and they'd have the same peaks and placements with bundles

that's a personal problem of yours cause everyone else has heard positions, since it's bigger and people preffer it and haven't dropped it like hard rock, like they did with ROM
