Another great day for the song. Up two spots on the Hot AC chart to a new peak of #26! SFS adds 37 spins since just yesterday. It's also one of the fastest risers on the chart.

I'm happy to see it, but it is surprising that this mediocre song is doing so well in the charts.

I've heard SFS on the radio more than I've heard any other singles since 2006 combined.

Huh, didn't know this was getting decent airplay.

Random question but is this in the Beats 1 rotation?

While I really like the song, I can understand why many would find it to be a mediocre U2 song but from the mainstream perspective.....it fits in perfectly and even stands out.

I read a lot of comments in this forum when the album came out that this song was generic pop and sounded like he typical bland song one hears on the radio....well, now ITS on the radio

Another good day for SFS, it gains 41 spins to rise to 903 spins on HAC staying at No. 26 (a high), and also rises to 4.980m audience impressions (a high). Also gained again slightly on AAA & AC. And I+e tickets for Belfast were secured!!!

Just saw that! You're right another good day. And another good sign? Of the 25 songs ahead of SFS, only three are rising faster, Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift, Wasn't Expecting That by Jamie Lawson and Locked Away by R. City.

Another good day of gains for SFS on HAC, adding another 29 spins to take it to a high of 932 spins and a high of 5.171m audience impressions. Still at number 26 on HAC. Flat on AAA, but it gained another 5 spins on AC.

I'll check when I get home but I believe that SFS is quickly approaching the most audience impressions on a given day for any of the 3 SOI singles. What's most impressive is that it's doing it from only 1 format whereas EBW was on 5 formats at one point (alt, mainstream rock,rock,AAA,AC and Hot AC)

Cosmo, I think from memory that EBW had just over 9m AI at one stage, but as you say over maybe 5 formats. Still pretty impressive performance from SFS though on basically one format.

Yeah, pretty sure EBW got over 10m AI maybe in early January?

Yes EBW hit 10m impressions but had less spins ... It did break top 200 on overall impressions but believed it peaked at 1200 spins across all formats.

SFS is over 6m impressions and 1300 total spins ... Mostly off hot ac, a bit on ac and aaa. That would make it more often played than EBW. Anyone know what beautiful day or vertigo peaked at? I imagine both were in >50m impressions territory and 20k spins?

Never know - it could cross to pop and become a top 100 hit.

So here is what I tracked for the SOI singles:

The Miracle:
Spins: 1,321 (peak on 11/10/14)
Impressions: 6.1 million (peak on 11/13/14)

EBW:
Spins: 1,568 (peak on 1/21/15)
Impressions: 8.29 million (peak on 2/11/15)

Invisible:
Spins: 1,631 (peak on 2/9/14)
Impressions: 10.4 million (peak on 2/9/14)


If SFS is at 6 million impressions, that is impressive in the context of SOI, given it is the 3rd single and it is outperforming the lead single at this point.
