Yep, same here in AU. It's a big feature on the main page, but nothing.Am in the UK and the same happens here too.
Yet it’s touted as a feature on Siri’s UK page:
It definitely did, I used it all the time lol. I got through to an engineer eventually, and the best they could say was that they don't know but that they'll monitor it. Haven't heard back since.I'm sure it used to work. I've Tweeted Apple Support - let's see if they reply with anything that might help!
Reviving an old thread as I’ve noticed this in Australia today as well. Hopefully it’s just a bugYep, same here in AU. It's a big feature on the main page, but nothing.

Well, that's disappointing.It’s not a bug. I reported it last year too and I also didn’t receive any follow up.
Yesterday, I was working on an unrelated issue with my HomePod that got escalated to the very top so I had access to a senior HomePod expert at Apple. I asked him this and he got me the answer: it’s been removed. Music charts are US only.
Given that this was a top selling feature of HomePod to begin with, it’s not ok that they removed it.
This support document confirms it:

I have a vague recollection that Apple cut ties with a music industry charts company — might’ve been Billboard — over some disagreement on licensing. Who else would have that kind of historical information? Like many things related to places outside the US, Apple has bigger fish to fry and is in no rush to correct this.Well, that's disappointing.
Thanks for posting this followup though, @ipedro.
I'm presuming that Apple has decided it's too difficult to source a definitive answer for the historic song queries outside the USA. (Although you would have thought if anywhere aside from America, data for the UK would be possible…).
