YAY CHILDISH GAMBINO!May 15, 2018 at 11:19 pm #1202547941
I would like to remind everyone I was the first person to write on here that Childish Gambino will be a major Grammy contender for Redbone way back when. No one else was talking about him before me. Just saying. I know everything.May 16, 2018 at 12:32 am #1202547955
No, sweetie! Myself and a few other posters also predicted “Redbone” for ROTY/SOTY nominations. Let’s not get carried away. We all know Gucci is the Grammy whisperer in this forum.May 16, 2018 at 4:21 am #1202548019
Lol I don’t think either one of you are some Grammy guru. Y’all get just as many wrong as you get right, and the ones that you do get right are usually safe, boring choices that tend to be the taste of most Grammy voters. Y’all don’t make any long shot choices and get them right, and I don’t get how y’all “always get it right.” Maren Morris was both of your Best New Artist pick two years ago, but she lost. And there are plenty of other examples where that came from. So stop with the narcissism.
Anyway, what does any of that have to do with the Billboard Hot 100?May 16, 2018 at 4:39 am #1202548020
We all know that poor quality song will probably end up being nominated, just like 1-800 was (for the social message).
Who cares about Committee nominees anyway. They’re all over the place now. Personally, I will only try to predict the general vote winners, because that’s what I got right last year. The committee choices are just so random and hard to predict.May 16, 2018 at 6:23 am #1202548068
“This Is America” is lot closer to “Formation” than “1-800.”May 18, 2018 at 10:30 pm #1202549849
I don’t know how This Is America will do in the next weeks. It’s not getting radio, and it’s mostly a viral hit. Once the virality of the video is gone, it’ll plummet.May 21, 2018 at 6:03 am #1202550985
“This Is America” has about 19 million audience impressions and continues to grow on radio, so it definitely has radio support. Not sure where you’re getting your information.
It’ll get a second week #1, and it will have formidable competition from “Nice for What” in the upcoming weeks. It’ll slow down as expected but won’t completely disappear from the top 5. “This Is America” is a legitimate hit.May 21, 2018 at 10:46 am #1202551157
Billboard Hot 100
1. Childish Gambino – This is America (2nd Week at #1)
2. Drake – Nice for What
3. Drake – God’s Plan
4. Post Malone featuring Ty Dolla Sign – Psycho
5. Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line – Meant to Be
6. Zedd featuring Maren Morris and Grey – The Middle
7. Ariana Grande – No Tears Left to Cry
8. BlocBoy featuring Drake – Look Alive
9. Camila Cabello – Never Be the Same
10. Ed Sheeran – PerfectMay 22, 2018 at 8:34 am #1202551761
“Nice for What” and “This Is America” will likely switch spots.
“Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai should be top 10 next week. That’s huge for a female R&B song in this day and age.May 22, 2018 at 2:02 pm #1202551944
I honestly don’t get the music business as far as charts go. How in the fuck is sangria wine chatting higher disputes fall in line having higher iTunes sales? Is iTunes irrelevant? Is this industry all about streaming now?May 24, 2018 at 4:43 pm #1202553442
Things will change some 1st chart of July Billboard will put more weight to songs and albums from “paid” streaming etc less weight to free streams YouTube etc
