If they aren’t number one in the midweeks when all of the physical bundle sales are counted it doesn’t seem likely they’ll be there at the end of the week does it, when streaming starts to weigh more heavily on the overall figures?
Faye has just said about a summer tour next year - I’m thinking festivals. And I’m thinking Brighton pride!
Faye just mentioned “gigs next Summer to celebrate our 25th anniversary” in her James Martin interview.
Unless there are loads to be counted. Don’t physicals only get counted when they’re shipped? But yeah, I actually thought they’d start off with a huge lead, so that’s out the window!
I can’t believe the Manics are going to hold them off yet again.
Ah well, the fact they’re still competing for a number 1 is astonishing in itself. No other act like them from their era can say the same. Good for them.
This feels like a more lowkey release than the first part. I don't know if many people outside the fanbase are aware of a new album.
Either way, another top 10/5/3 album for them is an achievement no matter what.
And there about 3.5k behind so not sure they’ll catch up. Sales are no where near what pt1 got on day one either.
Yeah, the buzz is nowhere near as big as last year.
It's #2, it's still doing great.
Would their day 1 pt1 sales have put them at number 1 this find around?
Well fuck. That’s surprising. I guess the “new album” angle just didn’t cut through. I do think naming it Part 2 gives the wrong idea.
They need to press some more Claire CD's and bring the 5 CD bundle back stat!
Top 5 for a Steps Part 2 album in 2021 is still brilliant.
I guess we’ve got about 800 sales from the 4 signings to add on and then the promo on Tuesday on “this morning” and whatever else they might have up their sleeves. Sales are always slightly lower at this time of year, don’t forget pt1 would have ended up as Christmas presents etc and it was more hyped with the tour announcement etc. it is gutting that they’ll likely miss out again!
Disappointed, but not surprising. This album doesn't have strong lead single like TOTD or selling Sia name and mighty SIYE like Part 1. They didn't even promote the song on national TV show AT ALL!!
Depending on what happens 3 consecutive #2 studio albums is insane for a pop group 25 years on. I just can’t believe the Manics are stopping them again
I thought they'd at least start off ahead at #1.
I wanted the 2001, 2011, 2021 number ones. Oh well, it's still done well!
Anyone else as gutted as me, so just bought another 2 sets of the individual covers?
Just met them in London, got a few pictures with them and a couple of things signed. They’re super lovely.
What are the sales? If they’re low Drake will probably overtake them when streaming is added.
Just listening to their personal messages on their discs, I love them so much. Lee’s acapella Take Me for a Ride line, he’s just adorable.
