U2 Trending number 1 on ITunes
« on: August 31, 2017, 08:27:52 PM »
U2 is trending hot or #1 on Itunes. So, it seems like The Blackout is being well-received. It has received over 3.1 million views with 24 hours..17,467,594 people liking this and almost 16 million following them on Facebook. The video was posted on YouTube about 12 hours ago and has over 80K views. Pretty impressive. It's not the type of numbers that Taylor Swift got with her new single but her new song sucks big time and I kinda like Taylor Swift to a certain degree. The new single from U2 Rocks hard!!

It's too bad that they haven't officially released the song on iTunes or Spotify.

I don't understand the correlation. The only people who listen to blackout are u2 fans. Maybe all those casuals who remembered the JT back in the day and decided to attend JT2017 have regained interest.

I just found it. It's not necessarily "trending" in the sense the albums and songs are going off the charts. When you push the search button on the iTunes Store app, it shows trending searches. I'm sure at least 1,000,000 u2 fans have looked up blackout to see if it's for sale

Well if people like me shared 'The Blackout' to their pages and feeds then loads of non U2 fans may have had a little listen.

U2 can only dream of getting the youtube or itunes hits in the numbers like someone in the Pop world (ie Taylor Swift). But Taylor swift and co i bet are much more envious of u2's abilty to play in front of massive crowds every night.

Seriously, who is in charge of this "The Blackout" release? They drop the song on facebook only with a terrible audio quality. On youtube the avatar shows the song logo but there isn't a trace of the video. Nothing on iTunes or Spotify either. Wtf are they thinking??

You do know that Swift has been playing stadiums for at least her last two tours, right? She's twice played the same stadium that U2 just played earlier this summer.

It's entirely possible that the studio version of The Blackout (or even the live-ish version we've heard) will either be included in the digital single for The Best Thing, or available to download when you pre-order the album after it's announced on Wednesday. We'll see. 

In the meantime, the Facebook video of The Blackout has been viewed 9 million times and counting, so it's hardly going unnoticed.
