    Evermore is the best selling female album and Clownderbby still has the audacity to not see Taylor as a contender!

    Congratulations to Grammy Winners: Jazmine Sullivan, Doja Cat, SZA and Olivia Rodrigo!

    I think Clownderby underestimates Taylor cross gen appeal, she can easily get nominated in AOTY, acclaimed and hit album in a weak year. The fact she won AOTY the year prior won’t stop the nomination, especially now that we don’t have committes.

    Olivia’s success is definitely attributed to timing & a lack of competition on the charts. She was able to attain buzz in a year where most major acts didn’t release or dropped subpar material (i.e. Bieber). It’ll be interesting to see if her moment will sustain into longevity.

    I’ve said this a lot but Billboard’s formula is actually atrocious and makes no sense for the streaming era. Butter being #40 on streaming while allegedly being the biggest song in the country makes ZERO sense. Good 4 U should clearly be spending its 10th week at #1 but Billboard has decided to prioritize social media engagement over charts that accurately represent consumption.

    Industry Baby should be debuting at #1 next week but I assume ~11k people buying 24 copies of the same song will apparently make Butter more popular than Industry Baby, a song that millions of people are actually listening to. Quite curious to see if Lil Nas X will point out how inaccurate the charts currently are.
