I didn't realise it took that long :o
At the end of the day, I'm not disappointed. He released an album far quicker than I thought he would, and I enjoy it. I'd still like to see and hear another single and video though :mrgreen:

Bon Jovi’s 2016 album just topped the Billboard 200 a few weeks ago because of CDs redeemed from ticket sales.

Not bad, but not the best. Glad there's a single though, I was wondering if there would be any more.

I don't know why he loves that song so much. Apparently it's one of his favorites off the new album. I'm not a fan and I wish he would release "Baby, You Make Me Crazy".

I don't know why, either. He might think it fits the times we are in or something. I like how he performed it on TV better than the one above.
I wouldn't mind if BYMMC was released...that one is much better, so I'm hoping that still has a chance to be released.

"In late February, Metallica announced the second North American leg of their 'WorldWired' tour and ticket sales helped to pad the No. 2 chart position. Ticket purchases included an album redemption offer where fans had the choice of receiving a copy of the album, which then was attributed to part of the 65,000 unit tally."

Metallica is #2 this week. It will be interesting to see how many copies of TTOIA gets redeemed.

Payola.
The song is a flop.

I don't like the song at all and I can't believe it was a released as a single. Sam says it's one of his favorites off the new album so he's trying to make it a hit. It's not going to work.

I don't think it's payola because it's not getting played on the radio. It moved up on the charts because fans wanted the new version and it's probably fallen way back by now.

Edit: It's not even it the iTunes top 200.

Looks like the new single just hit radio a few days ago. I don't think it will be a hit but we will see.

Damn, apparently Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" has over 750 million streams on Spotify. :shock: How long will they continue to make CDs?

Amazing numbers.
I think sooner than later CD's will be a thing of the past. And I think it will be a shame, because I always prefer CDs than downloads, streams any day.

New single gained some spins this week on Top 40 radio but it's not enough to get it on the Billboard 100.
