That's really interesting! Good for them! I'm surprised no major label signed them, or would agree to their terms. Oh well, turns out they didn't really need them anyways!


Their last album haven't even passed 20k in total so far! Plus, with the way Fascination set up All Saints - their own label with a distribution deal - I'd assume they've set up Steps the same and that if Bananarama actually get around to releasing music it'll be the same sort of deal. That way their acts record independently and probably at minimum risk for the record labels, but they still can get decent distribution of the material.

I'm so gutted that they lost the battle of getting the #1 as Ed was overtaking the #1 according to Wednesday midweek :(

Single has climbed back to number 10 on iTunes while the album is back up to number 3.
Maybe physical will pick up ?

Scared of the Dark chart run in the UK so far: [37-147-out-139-140...]

Yesterday it was up to midweek #39, so unfortunately it doesn't look like it'll better its current peak of #37. I hope it at least manages to hang on to the Top 40 for tomorrow though, it would be a shame when it's been in the iTunes Top 10 for almost the entire week!

In the sales only chart, its run is: [7-43-79-51-41-40...] and I presumably it'll be back into the Top 10 this week. Sadly it has no presence on streaming. :(

Scared ended up climbing to #44... damn streaming. :despise: [37-147-out-139-140-44...] It was #10 on sales only.



Tears on the Dancefloor is officially in at #2! It was sadly but predictably let down by streaming, and surprisingly a little let down by physicals (specifically CDs).

It reached #1 in the download chart, #1 in the sales chart (physicals & downloads together), #2 in the physical chart, #7 in the vinyl chart* & #28 on streaming.

* It was Record Store Day on Saturday, so the vinyl chart is full of releases from that day. So #7 is good! (Ed Sheeran's vinyl fell from #1 to #15).


#1 - Ed Sheeran (53,809 sales) [18,433 of which was derived from streaming]
#2 - Steps (37,624 sales) [1,099 from streaming]

Interesting fact: the album sold an impressive 1,110 copies in the vinyl format.

Totals:

1,403,404 - Step One
1,292,466 - Steptacular
705,390 - Buzz
20,015 - Light Up the World
37,624 - Tears on the Dancefloor

1,131,168 - Gold: Greatest Hits
240,848 - The Ultimate Collection

If we hadn't of known they were midweek #1 I would be so delighted for them right now, never thought they would get as high as #2!!!

Really have a big issue with streaming.

#2 is great, I have no idea what sales are like in the UK, but those are pretty decent numbers right?

Hoping that they push Story Of A Heart out soon so they can keep up the momentum and manage some more time in the albums chart.

^ Yeah it's a good sales figure! It's the 5th highest weekly figure for a #2 album of the year.

Good news this week - Tears on the Dancefloor is midweek #4! Great to see it holding up well. :D The Ultimate Collection also moves up to #12!

Story of a Heart entered the singles chart at #173 (#74 on sales).

Fab news about the album reaching Number 2 and for it not to be falling rapidly. This campaign is going pretty much amazingly for them!
And what great news about the Ultimate Collection! I think it helps that in HMV it is £2.99 with any purchase, and in my ASDA, it is only £3!

I really hope Tears on the Dancefloor reaches at least a Silver certification!

The album being midweek 4 is amazing ! I'm expecting it to drop later in the week but looking likely to spend another week top 10! Scared is midweek 85, do we know how much it has sold now? Around 13,000?

They've been tweeting/posting about Neon Blue today. Are we sure that it's not the next single? It's my favorite! *fingers crossed*

I really hope they decide to release it as a single. That song is so damn good!

Lisa/Lee/Claire did an interview , can't find the link now but the main points were;
Neon Blue is a contender for third single
They don't think there will be a solo section on tour
They will be performing 5,6,7,8 on tour as they are aware it's their biggest hit on Spotify and YouTube

Very pleased for them! Tears on the Dancefloor sales after 2 weeks: 50,384.

Scared of the Dark fell to #104, it has sold 58,500 so far. [Chart run: 37-147-out-139-140-44-104...]

Glad to hear Neon Blue is a contender for third single too, my favourite album track. <3

They are doing quite well really on sales aren't they. I didn't expect them to sell quite so well, was thinking 50,000 would be a nice figure to end at nevermind in the second week. Silver is a definite then and Gold looks likely (:

Fab news! I was worried that the album would fall like a stone, but so pleased with it's position. And also very good sales too. Next couple of weeks should see it certified Silver!

And how brilliant that the Ultimate Collection is so high as well. It's seems like Steps can do no wrong at the moment.
They all must be blown away and so happy at the way they are being received nd how much love there still is out there for them!
