Official charting - Bittersweet

It's official, Bittersweet failed to perform well on the charts. Digital Spy and The Guardian gave the song 5 stars and BBC Radio 1 (curse those sods) gave it 3 stars. It was #1 on MTV Dance for weeks (it's still #1). PopJustice and several other websites gave the song favourable reviews. Sophie was on top of the PJ Almighty for several weeks (months even!). It's hard to believe that a song as good as this landed somewhere inside the top 40., and not in the top 10.

Bittersweet peaked at #25 on the UK Singles Chart, #14 on the UK Club Chart and #38 on the UK Downloads Chart. I hope it does well in Russia. By the way, Can't Fight This Feeling is #1 in Russia (thanks Fran). It's good to see that Sophie has a loyal fanbase there. Go Russian fans!

Sophie has plans for a second single - either Revolution or Off And On. The second single hits the radio sometime in July and the album will follow in August. Hopefully everything will go as planned and she'll have a decent top 10 hit with the next single.

Wishing the best for Sophie....

By the way, i'm back. I'm done with my exams (such a relief). So how have you been?

Thanks Eden, that's so sweet of you. And thank you all for wishing me too...

God i feel so lost on my own blog right now. I really need to start updating the website. There's nothing new out there though. Hopefully we'll have some news soon.

I wouldn't worry about chart positions, they're no indication of quality.
It seems that only rubbish like RnB or rap gets into the Top 20 nowadays.
Good site by the way!

Thanks NDA, i know you from somewhere... the official site? Are you Neil by any chance?

NDA said...

Hi Kaushik. Yes I am Neil from the official site. I don't go on there much these days but I'm still a big Sophie-fan and looking forward to the next album and hopefully a tour!

Hey Neil, good to see you here. I'm looking forward to the new album too. The first single was excellent, even though it underperformed on the charts. Hopefully the second single will find itself somewhere inside the top 10.
