UK midweek singles charts Official Singles Chart Update Top 100 | Official Charts Company

TBT is nowhere to be seen in the top 100.

I told you it would drop and not climb.

There is no hope for U2 in the uk singles charts in this day and age

There is never ever going to be hope for them if they don't bother to do any push or promo,

That's pretty cool. Would be cool to get more additions on satellite stations and curated streams on Spotify and Apple Music.

Here are the updates I have from Mediabase as of 9p ET in order of Format size/importance.

You're the Best Thing About Me:

Top 40:
-Not currently charting (haven't in years)
-1 station added the song (only 1 station in El Paso…but it broke through the format!!)


Hot AC: #42
- #42 with 266 plays and 1.874 million impressions
-2stations added the song
-Up 150 spins w/w

Alternative: #30
- #30 with 575 plays and 2.256 million impressions
-6 stations added the song ( 2nd most added)
-Up 184 spins w/w (3rd biggest increase)

AC:
- Not currently charting in the top 50
-No new stations added the song


Active Rock: #46
- #46 with 113 plays and 0.699 million impressions
-1 station added the song
- Up 43 plays w/w

Triple A: #8
- #8 with 409 plays and 1.194 million impressions
-1 station added the song
-Up 168 plays w/w. (2nd biggest increase)

It hits a high in both spins (1,363) and impressions (6.02) in its 12th day on the charts. For some recent context, The Miracle didn't hit this level of plays or impressions until its ~60th day on the charts. Every Breaking Wave saw a similar length of time to hit these levels at ~60 days. As mention before, You're the Best Thing will be pushing for adds on Hot AC and AC next week, so we might see an increase on those formats. I would like to see an official video released for this song and some promo performances but time will tell I guess.

Had a long drive today so I tuned in to SXM Spectrum (channel 28 for me). At Noon they did a "Top 5" countdown, and the DJ was really bragging on this song.

After it played, he said "U2's new hit single ytbt has been the #1 song for two weeks now. Tune in Friday night to see if they can make it three in a row."

Now, my Sirius is at Eastern Standard time in the U.S. I don't know what each station is "named" aside from 28 The Spectrum. Too lazy to look up channel guide, but I heard VERY different versions on channels 31, 33, and 36.

On channel 33, it was a dance/club mix for sure, but not Kygo's release. Looping dance beat and well over 5 minutes. For me personally, I have never been into U2 songs remixed for clubs...however, after just hearing it once, I think it's my favorite so far...

First time I've heard ytbt with a good stereo system turned up loud. If this isn't one of U2's biggest hits then they just won't ever really have one again. I guess that's a stretch since I've only heard this song for a week now...but it sounded really good, especially the Channel 33 version.

Edit: Ch 33 is called "1st wave"
