Four of the five songs available from Thursday’s special audition episode of The Voice have charted on iTunes genre charts.

Leading the way is Julien Martinez, the college student and teacher’s aide who turned two chairs with his performance of “Pride and Joy.”

He landed a spot on Team Adam Levine.

And, as of 8 a.m. this morning, his version of “Pride and Joy” had landed at number two on the iTunes blues singles chart.

Meanwhile, Brandon Royal, who hadn’t taken a stage for five years prior to his blind audition, has scored a hit on the iTunes reggae chart.

His cover of “Master Blaster” was number 12 as of 8 a.m.

Below is where all the songs from Thursday’s episode are landing. As of 8 a.m., none of the songs had cracked the iTunes Top 200 overall singles chart.

Keep in mind that it’s impossible to compare a performance on one chart to a performance on another.

It’s incredibly more difficult, for instance, to scale the county singles chart than any of the others listed below. And all the more so on new music Friday.

44 — Casi Joy, “Blue”

Reggae singles chart

12 — Brandon Royal, “Master Blaster”

Blues singles chart

2– Julien Martinez, “Pride and Joy”

108 — Quizz Swanigan, “Who’s Lovin’ You”
