    . Positions (the single) is expected to sell around 30k this week which is a huge step down so I’m 99% sure she won’t be able to pull 150k pure with the album.

    what do you think the streaming numbers will be?

    I also wonder why positions sold so much less it’s not a horrible song

    TOTC predicts 37m streams for Positions, which is good.  It is #1 on US Spotify all the tracking week.

    I’m trying to not be too disappointed with the sales numbers, not everything should be about charts and Ariana said that this is her favorite album so I’ll just enjoy the era for what it is even if I don’t totally vibe with the music.

    She said that about every album she has released. Everybody does. I’ve heard the album, there are few standout tracks, it’s not for pop fans. It’s more Sweetener vibe with a lot of strings like Dangerous Woman.

    Yes I agree. I wonder how critics will react to it because they did like Sweetener. I’m thinking the metacritic score will be around 75-85.

    The problem is that she’s releasing music too quickly. She literally had Sweetener in 2018, thank u, next in 2019, two #1 collab in 2020, Stuck with U and Rain on Me… Like, general public needed a little break from her. That’s why there’s no hype I think.

    We need a proper era, let’s hope this is not a 2 weeks era.

    According to Universal Music Italy, 34+35 is the next single, and that song has been play listed on Capital FM UK. I wonder if she’ll release a music video for it tomorrow.

    Yeah I thought there was way more hype than there is. positions (song) is not doing nearly as well as I expected based on the announcement hype.

    Probably a 300k debut, maybe lower.

    Honey, let’s keep it real.  “Positions” is a shitty song.  BARF!  That’s why it’s NOT doing as well as expected.  Ariana Grande can’t keep releasing crap.

    everyone remembers Tay releasing folklore, it was a freaking event! If it were a nonentity it wouldn’t have topped the Billboard 200 for 8 weeks!

    Positions is the most commercial song on the album by far. It’s the only one that sounds very radio-friendly.

    Nasty is pretty radio friendly if you ignore that full on incoherent word vomit in the chorus, but I think 34+35 is the next announced single, which isn’t so bad either

    Wait how did you hear the album. Are you like an actual critic. Cause that’s so cool

    Taylor was smart by having it be an actual surprise release. This is kinda weird cause she just sorta announced it 2 weeks before. Taylor announced it like 14 hours before it dropped and I only heard about it because all the morning radio stations were talking about it. Also tons of articles popped up which caused a lot of hype. This was weird timing as it didn’t really have enough time to have the single do much and get on the radio and grow, and it didn’t have the full surprise drop. One more thing might be that I think Taylor had given the album people wanted for years. I think it’s too soon to judge this album but I really hope it does well because Ariana is very talented and I hope this isn’t just a half month era that just ends
