Looks like youtube adjusted their view count, and it went from more than 2M to 1,966,737 views..
It was on 2,267,000...
They also corrected the Oscars performance from 14.4 mil to 13.7 mil.
Plus they also corrected other QAL videos earlier this week. The Somebody to Love performance on X-factor lost 100-200k views earlier this week for instance. It didn't get that back by the way.
ETA: that video just lost another 5k. I'm waiting for it to hit 7 million, but it should have hit that over 2 days ago already.
ETA2: the audio video also lost 14k views.
Makes you wonder if it is really worth it to keep trying to game the system..one thing it means is that the numbers really don't mean much when you know many of them come from people putting then on repeat then turning off the volume!!! Makes the information worthless, imho. I play as much as I can listen to, and buy/gift what will count in the first place, then generally stop that. Just me, and I love to see his numbers go up in that first surge, but after that it is like 'grade inflation'...it demotes the importance of even the 'real' numbers, I am afraid...

Great news about FS charting at #22 on the BB digital sales chart! It is kinda crazy to think that GT only charted at #43 as the first single of his last album in comparison. I am not sure whether it is his new management or label but wow! I am very excited about the things to come!
I was just having a thought, I might totally be off the mark but what if Adam’s new single is a new QAL song? Remember that studio session Alisan Porter mentioned in Nashville with Roger and Adam? Wouldn’t a new QAL song tie in perfectly with Adam’s status as the current frontman of Queen, the upcoming QAL documentary and the QAL tour? QAL would have something new to sing on the tour Just fun speculation while we wait for the official single to drop
I think it makes total sense to at least think about the incredible platform and opportunity for Adam if they released a QAL song during high flying times like these. However, what if the song doesn't get the reception they are hoping for? Wouldn't that give the "he's no Freddie" naysayers quite a field day? I think a "tie in" with Queen is a smart strategy, however I would prefer an all Adam song instead, because I am also really craving it, but it would be ideal if it somehow tied in with their sound and artistry.
I agree that FS charting at #22 is FANTASTIC NEWS!!! I was curious to find out what it took for Adam to get there and I educated myself a bit...
"Billboard publishes a host of charts that are individually or collectively based on key fan interactions with music, including album sales and downloads, track downloads, radio airplay and touring as well as streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, Vevo, Youtube, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen BDS, Nielsen SoundScan and Next Big Sound. In order for artists and title to chart in Billboard, they must be among the higher ranked performers among the specific metric used to compile the chart. Specific methodologies can be found on each chart page on billboard.com and on the Chart Legend reference page on billboard.biz."
From what I gather, in addition to streaming, buying, and viewing, it certainly is a good thing to help keep circulating Adam's name on social media. My contribution is my presence on twitter by liking, retweeting and sharing important articles and posts in relation to Adam, plus I do leave positive comments on his YT videos every now and then - never more than one per day, but here and there when I view his videos. For instance, I have left numerous comments on Adam's acoustic live video and additionally I do "like" other comments that I agree with. I keep tweeting the mv out on a daily basis. Got more likes yesterday than ever before btw. Keeping Adam and Queen going by still talking about their Oscars performance can't be a bad thing either. Sorry about the ramble. I think Adam and Queen are the gift to each other that keeps on giving. (not only does their collaboration work, but they keep each other in the news and now they are both on the charts)

ρяσмρтσ αяgєηтυм ☠️ @promptosilvered Apparently a lot of people are losing significant amounts of views YouTube on TeamYoutube twitter is replying people about it... it appears to be a flaw in their system and they are probably trying to resolve it as we speak

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
