Chart Check: Tinashe’s ‘Pretend’ Impacts iTunes UK / Rita Ora Swings Into US Digital Top 40

Published: Monday 1st Sep 2014 by David


After conquering US radio with the infectious ‘2 On’, Sony’s Tinashe sails towards global relevance on the ship that is her new single ‘Pretend’, available to purchase now.

Today, thanks to support she’s garnered from British music lovers, the rising star has earned an iTunes UK R&B Top 40 with the new song!

Full story below…

As Rita Ora‘s ‘I Will Never Let You Down‘ finds itself placed at #34 on iTunes USA’s Pop chart, Tinashe occupies two spots on iTunes UK’s R&B tally, with ‘Pretend’ perched at #20 and ‘2’ placed one spot below at #21!

Two on indeed.

Will the success of its lead single be enough to ensure commendable numbers of T’s debut LP ‘Aquarius’?

Find out when the project drops October 7th!

    Rita Ora is slowly making her mark but Tinashe is a FLOP

    • Existential Force September 1, 2014

      Negativity doesn’t need to spread on a simple blog. Cyber bullying and toxic comments are never okay. Let Tinashe continue blossoming as an artist; she’s working hard on her craft.

      I have nothing but hope for you, Proud-Ariantor. Have a great day!

    Ok Rita I’m seeing you gurl. I just want u to stop being a h** but you’re doing great now in US. And Tinashe I’m on your side keep on doing your thang and I can’t wait for Aquarius.

    I don’t see it for Tinashe tbh…I don’t feel she’ll crossover and get out of the urban world. She’ll go as far as recent Ciara to me. And Rita….the real little engine that couldn’t, but she keeps trying with this US market…

    Congratulations to Calvin Harris!! I’m sure he
    paid the session singer, who won’t have this
    song on her album…

  7. Dem Lessors September 1, 2014

    Proof of ‘conquering’ are positions on the iTunes subgenre charts which barely touch top 20… *Holds tounge*

  8. Tits McGee September 1, 2014

    I really hope that the song rockets to the top 10 of
    BB. It would be interesting to hear Rita explain how
    she can’t perform or have ‘her’ hit on her album!!

  9. IdontCare September 1, 2014

    tinashitt oops I mean tinaflop mighty mouse looking a** is going to flop harder than kreyshawn she’s annoying you can tell she’s a try hard wannabe just like Ciara and “2 on” SUCKS how is she going to release a album off of a Minor urban hit the song isn’t even a moderate or major crossover hit lol FLOP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Timago September 1, 2014

  11. UGH September 1, 2014

    Tina… Will FLOP, but at least she got an album release date
    The only thing Rita has is herpres simplex 1 & 2 #TheTruth

    • UGH September 1, 2014

      Misspelled on purpose so you know what I mean**

  12. Memo September 1, 2014

    Misleading title as usual. Rita Ora is Top 40 on iTunes Pop Chart, not in the main one. She’ll never happen!

  13. the voice September 1, 2014

    Tinashe doesn’t need to crossover to make money and have success…
    She just needs to stay true to herself.

    She also needs a Clive Davis type manager or exec that will do for her what Clive did for Alicia Keys.

    I would like to see Tinashe do much more TV in the U.S and UK.

    She should do Jools Holland in the UK and Fallon & Kimmel in the U.S.

    IMAGINE if Tinashe had has many opportunities as Roc Nation gave Rita. Boring Rita has been all over TV without any U.S hits.
