"Impossible" by James Arthur already #1 on iTunes UK and Ireland
 
In less than 90 minutes after being released. Amazing.

Have you bought your copy yet? :D

I don't think the physical copy is out until wednesday.

"Impossible" is outselling the #2 song on iTunes 4 to 1! In less than 3 hours!!!!

RANK ARTIST TITLE POPULARITY
1 James Arthur Impossible 1.00000
2 will.i.am Scream & Shout (feat. Britney Spears) 0.28125

I think that is a record.

Hermanazo 10-12-2012 02:13

The gap keeps increasing! It's now almost 5 to 1!

1 James Arthur Impossible 1.00000
2 will.i.am Scream & Shout (feat. Britney Spears) 0.21875

Isn't this always the case? :confused: The winner single is always selling that much to #2 in the first few hours iirc.

Hermanazo 10-12-2012 02:35

Not this early after the release. I think Little Mix were 3 to 1 and Matt 4 to 1 by noon. 5 to 1 is insane! Will try to find the numbers.

Digital Sid 10-12-2012 02:36

I've never in my life bought anything a talent show act has released, and I'm not starting now.

But those weren't up for pre-order in advance though iirc. Wasn't this year's winner single put up on iTunes before we even knew who the winner was?

Hermanazo 10-12-2012 02:44

No idea to be honest.

john176bramley 10-12-2012 02:45

The Xfactor winner could release a single which consisted of them farting for 4 minutes and it would still get to no.1.

In Arthur's case it would probably be an improvement.

tj hazuki 10-12-2012 03:25

The lead is impressive.

jamesarthur 10-12-2012 03:47

Fantastic to see it doing so well

Sun Tzu. 10-12-2012 03:57

I would laugh if it didn't even get the number 1 BEFORE the Christmas number 1 chart.

Mr_Eye 10-12-2012 07:40

How is this big news? It would only be news if it wasnt number 1.

kitten12 10-12-2012 07:42

Why would anyone download this horrible shouted dirge?
