Surely Not ladbaby again for the 3rd year in a row ..Cry

all he has to do is say its for the NHS or some good charity cause and he would likely win hands down

anybody got any thoughts on it this year ?

How big media works, Bieber and NHS is a bigger story than LadBaby 3. Would they want to promote him over two NHS runners? He was the story last year.

It can't be calculated accurately nowadays as 'premium' streams have more weighting than free streams. The 600K was the day before the ones that count. Nobody knows the streaming levels for the chart week coming, aside from that they are likely to be huge, maybe 5 million just on you tube for example. With LB's great start, he's moved further ahead but Mariah remains the nearest threat, for me.

December 18th: And They're Off
James Masterton XmasNo1 18 December 2020
Let the games begin. As of now, we are officially inside the Christmas chart survey period. All sales and streams of singles in the UK from now until midnight on December 24th will count towards the Christmas chart. And on this blog I'll try to give as many updates as I can as to how the race is going.

One small procedural issue should be noted. Readers of this in previous years will know I've been able to post detailed updates on some of the numbers involved as the week unfolds, this thanks to contacts in the industry leaking them to me ahead of time. This time around thanks to my Music Week role I do myself have privileged access to that data, but this actually means I'm bound by confidentiality not to abuse that or break the strict embargos that exist around midweek information. So regrettably the only information I can recount is that which the Official Charts Company themselves have chosen to put in the public domain, although I will do my best to colour in any detail, expand on matters they are vague about and at the very least try to give any sensible analysis that is required.

Here's hoping for something resembling an actual race. The worst of all worlds is one single soaring into an unassailable lead and rendering all subsequent debate irrelevant.

I wouldn't say I'm a fan but it seems there's a big market for his sort of unvarnished warts and all type of content. The 'every' man made good. It's obviously exaggerated but he doesn't take himself seriously. I was pretty skeptical that the enthusiasm would have carried through, but it has. It's obviously a factor that iTunes is dead otherwise Grin

Ladbaby has had a 3 day headstart

His Single was released last Friday ...it has already sold 80,000 - 90,000 copies

Ed Sheerans song was only released this morning

The cut off point for sales / streams / downloads is midnight on Thursday 24 December

So Ed and any other potential competition have 4 days to overturn ladbabys sizable lead

Marcus Rashford documentary is on bbc 1 tonight at 7 pm ....expect considerable ladbaby sales from this prime time Evening tv slot

I lumped a good few quid more on ladybaby earlier when he went as big as 1.7 - 1.8

The fact that Mariah and Wham are now 3rd and 4th according to the official charts company is very telling

Ed Sheeran still not even showing up on Kworb stats for iTunes

Ladbaby has released 2 versions of his song ..both of which now occupy the top 2 positions in the iTunes and Amazon charts

People don’t care if he’s a **** Army ....it doesn’t matter that the songs are rubbish ...

the fact is all the money raised will go to food banks really resonates with the public at Christmas time

The charity Angle gives him a huge advantage over Sheeran

Btw ....I agree with you when you think  that Ladbaby will be begging Ed to tell his fans to buy the ladbaby song ...just like Bieber did for the NHS In 2015

Ladbaby sold 90,000 last year ...78,000 the year before ....he Will easily sell over 100,000 this year

Shape Of You scored 90K streaming points with 13.4 million streams, when the ratio was 1-150 audio only. Over 7 days. Say Ed does 10 million streams in 4 days, average ratio 300 that's 33.3K. So he needs something like 7.5 million streams a day to be in the race. 13.4 million (1.91 million per day) is the audio streaming record).
