After a smashing first album, Maroon 5 saw its success shrink until the release of Moves Like Jagger. This song has steered the band to the tops of the charts. Is this trajectory also visible on streaming platforms?
South Korean superstar IU just debuted straight at #1 with her new song Blueming on the Gaon charts this week destroying all competition as well as taking up half of the top 10 digital tracks there with songs from her new album Love Poem.
No one who follows the charts there are surprised really, it’s just what she does with everything she releases in her homeland. And she’s been doing it for a decade now!
But is this really enough for IU to go up against her fellow Koreans that are way more popular than her internationally?
Who’s popular in South Africa? A lot of information is available for many countries from Europe and America, but what about the main African market?
One would instinctively expect hugely popular black artists from the decade to dominate, like Michael Jackson and Prince, but in truth sales were mostly driven by British expatriates. Should we expect to see Kylie Minogue and Rick Astley in full force then?
