Wow!

It's hardly the first time any music chart has been accused of being rigged but using fans to do it for you is pretty low.

T'internet has a lot to answer for.

I hope the official website shenanigans with the signed print will work, even though I imagine half of those copies will be shipped internationally, and therefore not counted for the UK placing.
Is that really the case? The album would be sold in the UK even if it ends up being mailed elsewhere. Same thing would happened e.g. if I decide to buy on Amazon UK from Germany, instead of Amazon DE. At least that's my assumption.

If thats the case, I will buy hotspot from official store. Please, someone can confirm or deny it.

Yeah, I tried checking the chart rules on that, didn't find them there, but yeah... If that really were the case, it would be easy to get a UK #1 by selling it in the UK exclusively. Everyone else would buy it from an online UK store and therefore concentrate the sales there. Unfortunately, I think they won't count.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'd love them to get a #1, and for my two copies to mean they will.

Unless it's changed, the recorded address of the owner making the payment method determines whether it's UK-chart eligible.

I've pre-ordered the double CD, vinyl and cassette. Ridiculous.

I reckon they've been pretty savvy with the cassette and temptation of the signed prints. That said, I'd have still bought the vinyl and CD.

Eminem has just released a surprise new album today, let’s just hope their isn’t any surprise releases next week. Rihanna’s new album is expected to come out soon.

So now you can say goodbye to number 1. Eminem wil easily outsell them in his second week. And as to my own prediction the chances for top 5 are also unlikely.

Yeah, very depressing development, but I'm still optimistic about them getting at least to #2. Of course, since this has no hit singles to speak of, maybe the hype will be concentrated and most people will get it immediately this week, clearing room for the Boys next time.
~edit: Eminem doesn't have any physical sales either, so it will mostly be streaming.

Eminem will be umber one for about a month. Kiss that number one goodbye. Top five at best. Number 76 by week three

Well that's the end of that then. I didn't think Hyde Park would carry them over to boost their album sales four months later anyway.
