What Are You Waiting For? has officially entered the UK charts at number 38. This (goes without saying) is the girls worse performing single, which was previously Work which entered at number 22 in June 2009. It is the girls 18th consecutive Top 40 single.

Finest Selection the girls first Greatest Hits album has entered the UK album chart at number 10.

As soon as we find sales information we will update this post accordingly.


How to support the new single and album.

Single – What Are You Waiting For?

The brand new single from The Saturdays – What Are You Waiting For – is OUT NOW! Due to changes in the UK singles chart you are now able to support the song in additional ways. We all appreciate that a lead single with an album out the next day presents a lot of problems with sales but please make sure you can do the following:

1. Buy the single from iTunes – just 99p! You can also download it from AmazonMP3!
2. Buy the EP from iTunes – £1.99 Again this is also available on AmazonMP3


Hit play above to listen to the song on Spotify, if you don’t understand the new UK chart rules on streaming please read below.

In a major change to UK charts recently, legal streaming also counts towards the UK charts, this has already been a proven affect on songs which have had decent sales but low streaming and have therefore charted lower than expected. Under UK chart rules 100 streams of a song (you must listen to the song for AT LEAST 30 Seconds) counts as ONE extra sale. Only streaming from the following services count (youtube doesn’t!). Most of these offer basic free services (or even a trial) if you live in the UK we strongly suggest you pick one (or more if you really want) and give What Are You Waiting For a play. A good system would be to BUY the song on iTunes but then STREAM the song from Spotify that way you are supporting the song twice. Remember every 100 plays = one sale.

I’ve linked to all the streaming sites below. They ALL count simply choose the one you personally prefer. It might be worth checking existing accounts, for example EE 4G customers can get Deezer on your mobile devices for FREE. Vodafone4G customers can get Spotify for free etc. Spotify has FREE accounts, Napster has a 30 day FREE trial, o2 Tracks also has a FREE subscription model.

This page will be updated with Spotify embed links once the song is available in the UK then you can just come back here and hit the play button!

Album – Finest Selection – Greatest Hits

Sadly streaming the album doesn’t add to sales, so its the old fashioned way here:

1. Buy the album from iTunes. Deluxe Edition and/or Standard Edition
2. Buy the album from Amazon  Standard Edition and/or Physical CD
3. The super Fan edition from the Official Universal Store

You might also be presented on iTunes to ‘complete my album’ and get the Greatest Hits for a much reduced price. I’ve spoken to the official charts people and they confirm buy doing this your purchase DOES count as a album sale. So please use complete my album if you want to get it cheaply. If you like to buy multiple copies to support the girls (I know some of you do!) then buying the physical CD (or fan edition) and then completing the album on iTunes for say £4 might be an option to get two sales.

This post will be constantly updated, if you know of other ways drop us an e-mail or twitter message and we will update 🙂
