Well what I was thinking was. If us as her fans managed to get her to number 12 of downloads and we've all bought a physical cd at least 1 copy (I think I have 4) we should be able to at least get her to number 2 or even number.

After writing this I see my theory makes no sense at all. But I still reckon that There is every possibility delta can debut at number 1. I don't think one direction will be any higher on the aria charts as they have hardly moved on iTunes.

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won't give up
I won't give in
I fight for hope in this
WAR ON LOVE

Also I think its really important for Delta to stay in the Top 10 as long as possible, thats what will inevitably make the song a success - not one week at #1 and then dropping off.

Believe Again - #2, #6, #11 (3 weeks to leave Top 10)
I Cant Break It To My Heart - #13 then #42 (Biggest fall in history at that point)

In This Life did great - #1, #2, #2, #4, #3, #3, #3, #5, #10 (9 weeks in Top 10)

I'm not saying its impossible, I would just be very surprised because Carly Rae was selling double the #2 for most of the week - as in I dont even think it will be close between Carly and Delta. Like 4:3

That's great news for delta! It can still get to the top spot. When, and I saw when Carly rae dies away a bit.

Reece Mastin - Good Night - #1 - 04/12/2011
Delta Goodrem - Sitting On Top Of The World - #2 - 22/04/2012

If we analyse the #1's, there is one thing that is clear. They are generally huge international artists with songs that are intended to be played in clubs or largely on radio - Lady Gaga, Kesha, P!nk x 2, Rihanna, Madonna, Flo Rida and Jason Derulo. In almost 5 years, they are the only artists to hit #1 on debut besides Brian McFadden + Vanessa Amorosi.

This Is Who I Am is one of my favourite ever songs and it was a smash on radio so that makes sense and Just Say So, which went to #1 for 3 weeks, came out of nowhere. Great song but dated too. But they are the two exceptions in almost 5 years (good on them I say).


As for Delta going to #1 on iTunes next week - possible. As for Delta hitting #1 next week - I doubt it. As shown in just the first two days of the next charting week, Carly Rae is killing it and I dont think its until the Sunday airing of The Voice where Delta will feel that resurge and I think Delta may eclipse on Tuesday to go #1 unless Reece Mastin has something to say about it.


So my expectation is that Carly will stay #1 next week and maybe Delta will eclipse #1 if she can hold on. I do however think Delta should be doing more promotion 2 weeks from now - performances on Today Show, interview on A Current Affair, print magazine cover shoots. Keeping this song in Top 5 for as long as possible and even clinching at #1 eventually would be awesome.

SOTOTW officially debuts at #2.

Artin


That's a great debut... I'm delighted for Delta... even if she doesn't go number one with this song, number two is a great achievement..

Lets hope she stays top 3/5 next week.. a huge drop wouldnt be the best start to this era.. but im optimistic this wont happen... it's a new song, people dont have it on the album yet and the voice will be great exposure for week two promo...

But #2 is a great achievement :-)

#2 is a great start for Delta after such a long break :)

Keeping this song in Top 5 for as long as possible and even clinching at #1 eventually would be awesome.

This is why Delta's role as a mentor on The Voice will hamper the promotion of her new single. She can't appear on Seven or Ten until The Voice finishes in July (she can appear on Channel V and MTV though) and she has already appeared on most major FM radio stations in Australia. Which leaves newspaper and magazine interviews and photoshoots.

Being on the highest rated television show and all the exposure from that is far better for Delta than one or two appearances on Seven or Ten.

FAR BETTER.

Channel 7 & 10 have jackshit that can promote her, I mean if Rove was still around it'd be a different story.

Even then, it wouldnt do that much. Roves influence dwindled massively towards the end. The best sort of shows for Delta to actually have influence on iTunes would be to appear on would be The X Factor or Australias Got Talent finale, or Sunday Night or Today Tonight which all have equal or if not better opportunities on Nine Network with 60 Minutes, A Current Affair and the more exposing and popular The Voice which has already done better than X Factor and is beating AGT in ratings. Sure, a Sunrise performance would be nice but its not a necessity until the album is out which should be fine for Delta :)

I know, the only other shows you can really perform on are Young Talent Time and Dancing With The Stars.

#2 is fantastic, we should all be very happy with that.

Aww its a shame Rove is not around anymore, I always really enjoyed watching his interviews with Delta!

ANYWAY - NUMBER 2!!! This is great news!! I am so happy for Delta, she totally deserves that what with all the in-stores she has done! Id much rather have SOTOTW in the top 10 for a good number of weeks than hit number 1 and then be forgotten about just as quickly. I think longevity is more important these days :)

Hoping "Sitting on Top of the World" will be on the charts for at least 10 weeks in Top 10. That could beat her last single by at least one week which could help her when she starts promotion in the U.K.! While she is in the U.K. she could very well release the second single (with a music video) at home during that time riding out the good feed-back from "Sitting on Top of the World." I think the instores have helped her greatly and I can already see that this era will be very different from 2007. With Vince by her side I can see her making a bigger impact then she did in 2007 and 2008!
