Just had a quick look at LivePopBars to see how Chris Maloney's debut single did, having been released on Sunday. It hasn't made the Top 1500. Thankfully. This equates to less than 100 sales. Seems none of the bingo-goers have iTunes! Discuss.

I wasn't expecting him to break any records but I thought it would have made the top 100/top 200 at least

Those who voted for him probably saw him on TV. He's not on TV every weekend anymore, so he's forgotten.

Well that clears it up then, MeNan's phone bill must have been astronomical last year.

And no return on her investment. He may still love his Nan but I think she might be having second thoughts now, wait until she tells the old girls down at the bingo.

Less than 100? Now that really is a flop.

Weirdly... I feel kinda bad for him.

Is he not promoting it on his Facebook account and what not?

I thought he was insanely popular. I guess we were all fooled by Menan and her fortune.

This is the kind of disaster the X-Factor Master Manipulators are trying to avoid.

There are former winners of the show though who wouldn't be able to sell 100 copies if they released a single tomorrow, so I wouldn't just single him out.

how many people who vote go on to buy the music of the act after the show has finished? given the winners who have fallen by the wayside, I would imagine that very few do. I'm not a maloney fan but I find the gloating on this thread very sad. people seem to relish in someone giving it go and failing

Steve Brookstein and Leon Jackson are the only possibilities though..., I think...

In fairness, how many people actually knew he was releasing a single? It doesn't matter who the artist is, if the public don't know about it then nothing sells. I'm not aware of him having any promotion.

It's a truly fantastic song, possibly my all time fave ballad ever. As for the video, it's stunning. Loads of people on twitter have got the single and he's being kept very busy with work. I'm so pleased he brought this single out & cannot wait for the Album.
My daughter & her friends have also bought the single & love it, it's been well received on local radio stations all over the country too. Well done Chris!

You're absolutely right. To be honest the only promotion I've seen has been on Twitter & local radio. Real shame as it is an amazing song which with the right promotion could easily reach No 1.

It's where you can see where songs are sitting in popularity at the time. It's updated repeatedly but not sure how often that is. someone else may be able to help with more info.

As I understand it, it includes pre orders.

This is the fault of ITV and The X Factor. They should do more to promote the acts that generated all that advertising revenue for them when they were on the show. Each act who end up with a record deal should be invited back on the show to perform their single. It's the least ITV should do.
