As would be guessed by the first figures of Spotify and Youtube, taking to account that the viewer of your Google account in the united States and the United Kingdom, ‘Rain on Me‘ is the new number 1 in both countries.
In the case of the Uk, the second single from ‘Chromatica’, our “Disc of the Week”, has achieved the equivalent of 70.132 units in the first week, proceeding to 60,000 of them to the streaming. In both cases it is the sixth number 1 for each. In the case of Lady Gaga numbers 1 pre in the Uk have been ‘Just Dance’, ‘Poker Face’, ‘Bad Romance’, ‘Telephone’ and ‘Shallow’ with Bradley Cooper. In the case of Ariana Grande, their numbers 1 have been ‘Problem’ with Iggy Azalea, ‘Bang Bang’ with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, ‘Thank U’, ‘ Next’, ‘7 Rings’ and ‘ Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’. As you can see, they are all collaborations with girls or issues in solitary, never featurings with guys, although she has had, of Troys Sivan Calvin Harris.
In the united States, this is the fifth number 1 for Lady Gaga after ‘Just Dance’, ‘Poker Face’, ‘Born This Way’ and ‘Shallow’. In this country, ‘Bad Romance’ could not be number 1 contained in the position 2 for 7 weeks, non-consecutive, first for ‘Empire State of Mind’ Jay-Z and Alicia Keys and then by ‘Tik Tok’ by Kesha. With this success, Gaga is the third solo artist after Mariah Carey and Beyoncé – that gets a top 1 in the united States in the last three decades.
It is the fourth single top 1 to Ari in the united States, but the good news is that they are all fairly recent, so that seems clearly on a roll. The above have been ‘Thank U’, ‘ Next’, ‘7 Rings’ and ‘Stuck With U’ with Justin Bieber. In the wake of this last and of the alleged purchase of multiple copies for part of your team to achieve the top of the Billboard Hot 100, Grande recalled that it had cost him 5 years of her career, getting his first number 1 in their own country.
In the rest of the world, ‘Rain on Me’ has not been number 1 more than in Ireland, which normally presents a list very similar to the Uk, remaining in the position 5 in Italy, in the 9th position in Germany or in the position 12 in France. Of time, in these countries have not been matched by both the achievements of ‘Poker Face’, ‘Bad Romance’ or ‘Shallow’ (‘Perfect Illussion’ came to be number 1 in France). Regarding to Ariana Grande, from the american R&B, it lacks numbers 1 in continental Europe: in Italy, ‘Rain on Me’ matches its best mark, the top 5 who managed to ‘7 Rings’. In Germany, the best brand is the top 2 of ‘No Tears Left to Cry’.
With regard to our country, with a list flooded with songs in Spanish, trap and reggaeton, and without that, you post Youtube, ‘Rain on Me’ has no options at least for the time being from adding another number 1 for Lady Gaga or be the first one to Ariana Grande, where ‘7 Rings’ at least came in the top 5. Your ball, Spain has had 5 singles number 1 for Lady Gaga, some of which were “instant grats” on ‘ARTPOP’ when it was not streaming: ‘Bad Romance’, ‘Born this Way’, ‘Applause’, ‘Dope’ and ‘Venus’.
