With a string of big new pop tunes available for your downloading pleasure, let’s take a look at how they’re getting on after one day on sale… and how we reckon they’ll end up.
The Saturdays – ’30 Days’: Frankie, Mollie, Una, Rochelle and The One What Sings Good really need ’30 Days’ to do well, seeing as their last album On Your Radar and single ‘My Heart Takes Over’ performed worse than expected. The song is already in the Top 10 after a day on sale, and the EP is No. 1 on the iTunes album chart, so we reckon a Top 10 placement shouldn’t be too tricky to achieve. But given that The Sats’ sales usually tail off as the week goes on, we reckon around the No. 9 mark is a realistic prediction.
Demi Lovato – ‘Give Your Heart A Break’: Demi has only ever had 3 Top 40 singles, and we don’t think ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ will be her fourth. It’s amazing, but its lack of radio play and the fact it’s now eight months old don’t exactly spell chart glory. The EP is doing OK on the iTunes Album Chart, so – at best – a low-end Top 100 placement looks likely.
Scissor Sisters – ‘Only The Horses’: The track is currently in the iTunes Top 40 and a performance on The Voice tonight may well push it towards the Top 30. But is it just us who hasn’t really heard it around that much…?
Mark Ronson and Katy B – ‘Anywhere In The World’: This one has had a bit of airplay on TV ads, but other than that it hasn’t really made its mark yet. We think this’ll be a slow-burner, but for now an entry around the No. 50 barrier sounds about right.
Jessie J featuring David Guetta – ‘Laserlight’: Available on the Platinum Edition of Jessie’s album for the last few months, ‘Laserlight’ has already been in the Top 10 for a while, and we don’t think its official release today will make much of a difference to its chart journey. Even though a major climb looks unlikely, expect it to still be in the Top 10 next Sunday.
