Following a series of tracks that underperformed on the radio and sales charts, but still garnered some fair streaming action, Disruptor/Columbia act The Chainsmokers is searching for an all-around smash with the Emily Warren-assisted single “Side Effects”. So, just how smokin’ do the stats look so far? Well, it’s certainly burning at iTunes, holding in the top 25 since release, as it placed on the all-genre chart in 62 countries around the world. However, its Spotify momentum is noticeably lacking, despite its solid playlisting across the pop genre. As of the new update on Wednesday morning, “Side” only ranks at #117 and #167 on the Global and U.S. lists at the service, and its Viral status (#35 U.S./#50 Global) is also on the low side. (The song ranks at #135 overall at Apple Music with similar playlisting.) Still, the single is approaching four million streams, so it could prevail, even with its unusually slow start there. “Side” is also progressing at YouTube, where a lyric video entered the Trending chart and is now above two million views, as well as Shazam, where it currently sits north of 34,000 tags (though it’s fallen short of the Future Hits list.) As the duo reveals their newest EP track by track, we’ll be watching all the effects of it! (Images courtesy of Disruptor and Columbia Records)
