Get On Your Boots hits number one.


Considering that they pretty much gave the single away and it's not even for sale everywhere yet, I'm pretty pleased it's hit number one anywhere.

I'm actually surprised that it's not in the top 30 on the US store.

It's my understanding it debuted at #37.

I think there were two versions of it charting in the iTunes top 100 songs. That probably contributed to it not having a higher ranking.

I don't think there are actually two different versions of the song, usually when this happens it's because there's a "single" version and an "album" version of a song. You can see on this feed that the song is currently at both #85 and #38. I can't tell from the info there what the difference is as it says the same thing for both. I'm sure it has something to do with iTunes cataloging.

I think I've seen one version of GYBO as high as #22 this week.

I believe all the sales numbers from both versions on iTunes and other retailers will be merged together for the actual Digital Downloads/Hot 100 charts.

When I went to purchase through iTunes, myself, I noticed there were two ... versions, if we can call it that. They're the same song. There's a black artwork, and a white artwork. *shrug*

That's because there are two versions of NLOTH. You can pre-order the regular or deluxe versions, and you can download GOYB now from either of them.
