Singles charts?

Anyone know how the singles charts work these days?

I'm just wondering when we can expect YTBTAM's UK chart position? Sunday?

I ask because 1, I've not followed singles charts since like 2004, and 2, the SOI songs were not available to buy and thus never got chart positions - will this be different?

Combination of digital sales, digital streams and YouTube hits

As it stands right now, probably not very high. It's currently #65 on the UK iTunes chart.

Yep. Now up to 21 on the UK itunes actually.

Of course the problem here is their streaming is nearly non-existent when most big songs on the chart are stream-heavy.

That and the fact that it's being released with only two days left in the chart week.

Anyone know how streams and YouTube views calculate into "sales". Like 100 streams equals a song purchase?

I'm googling and it seems that streaming is counted toward album sales, but don't see anything about singles...

From wikipedia. "The Hot 100 formula starting 2013 generally incorporates sales (35–45%), airplay (30–40%) and streaming (20–30%), and the precise percentage can change from week to week.[8]"

Streaming is probably a bit higher than sales and airplay now since that's the dominant method of music consumption

Number 17 uk iTunes

Why wasn't it released on a Friday so it would have a full week of sales to chart. Don't make sense
