Yes also rock bands. They sold Millions and Millions of albums not just after the initial hype, but also very well over the next months after release. Now there is just the initial hype the cult following creates, selling overall way less than they did in previous decades. Not sure when the last rock band had a 5 Million seller, it‘s been a while.
Explaining the flops of older artists (in detail) is and always will be pointless. Every artist in the history of the music business has declined over the years/decades. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Celine Dion, Eminem, Britney Spears,… everyone is called a flop at some time. Some had a huge initial debut and are measured…[Read more]
Gabriella Wilson scored 10 noms and 2 wins out of her past 2 EP‘s. Ariana Grande has 11 noms and 1 win out of 5 albums.
Nobody here really cares how much Gabriella sells or how she performs on charts. Nobody pits her against superstar artists. She just does under the radar her thing, gets her noms and here and there she wins a G…[Read more]
Ariana‘s TUN era came and went?
H.E.R.‘s „I used to know her“ era had 1 single that fell off the hot 100 after one week. The album debuted at #86 and left the chart after 2 weeks.
This is came and went. Both got AOTY noms.

Some people in this thread want to talk about who is winning an award, who is the front runner, the #1 pick. The arguments need to be the strongest of course.
Other people just want to talk about what album/song get‘s a nom later this year. So they use lighter arguments because there are 8 (or 5) slots available.
And that is the point why two p…[Read more]
This is basically how the entire world works.
Over 99% live either in extreme poverty conditions, starve to death, brutal wars (lead by the elites), are forced to work in low wage jobs, slavery or live a middle class to upper class western world life. These people mostly have no platform and whatsoever, a few will join the true…[Read more]
