Album Tracks Charting

I know that due to our previous experience, you've decided to limit the charting to only 2 album tracks per album to prevent too much of album tracks flooding the singles chart. I noticed that the 100th song in the US chart has 20,000 sales which require roughly 3,000,000 US streams (no CD or digital sales included), which means that at least 6,000,000 or more worldwide streams are required (assuming that 40-50% of worldwide streams are coming from the US). Based on this calculation, all of the tracks from my album have more than enough streams to enter the singles chart. So, it feels unfair that they're not charting since they're eligible here.

But I also understand that if you change here, every other album tracks from all albums will enter the main singles charts like crazy. Therefore, I suggest that the requirement for album tracks to enter the singles chart should be raised higher, meaning greater streams to sales ratio (not using the 1: 150, maybe 1:1250 or something). But the limit of two per album should be removed in my opinion cause these days some artists even debut their entire album in the singles charts.

In the UK (not sure about other counties), the same issue happened in real life with Ed sheerhan. All of his album songs were really high in the charts, so the official charts company decided to introduce a rule that only 3 album songs can be in the charts at any given time. (The highest charting ones first). So in the game you could pretent that this is the case 🤣🤣

Maybe in this game, the US and UK charts should be given extra conditions/rules for charting in order to mimic the real life situation. I'm okay with charts from the rest of the countries being as it is, it's the US chart that really bugs me lol.

The game limits the number using the UK rule. It takes the top 3 and allows those to chart.

Top 3? I've released 4 albums so far in a span of 5 years and I've only noticed two album tracks coming up on the singles charts every single time, not three. 

Additionally, I see that tracks with higher streams are not charting in the singles list but the lesser streamed ones are charting instead.

In reference to this, it would be good that when a song from an album comes out as a single, the previous streams count in its total sales and also its history chart appears.
