@thesaturdays brand new album, On Your Radar sadly enters the UK Album Chart this week at number 23.
As fans all we can do now, is to keep promoting the group, hopefully the forthcoming tour will keep the girls in the media throughout December. Remember over Christmas sales of albums are very high, as people buy them for presents. An album at number 30 could be selling as much as an album at number 10 across the summer. I think our next task as a group of fans is to try and keep the album inside the UK Top 40 throughout December, if its actually sitting in prominent places in stores like HMV and high up in iTunes people will keep buying. Also where possible make sure you leave positive reviews of the album, be it on iTunes, Amazon, HMV etc. A few positive reviews might get those who are 50/50 about buying it to pick up a copy. Chart placement is one thing, actual sales of the album is another. Don’t believe the false stories around in the media, they are about to embark on a pretty large Arena Tour, and if you compare them to the likes of other girl bands out there such as Wonderland and more recently Parade, who failed to go even Top 100 with their album last week, it could be a lot worse. Yes its far from ideal, we all know that, but it’s also something really not worrying about. It’s up to the groups management, and record label to get their thinking hats on and reverse the misfortune. It’s our job as fans to support the group, and that includes the bad times as well as the good!
Just ignore the haters, and the bad reviews, we are better than those people, and support the girls with their new album, and obviously their forthcoming tour that kicks off this Friday 😀
