It literally gained the most audience in the overall radio top 10 yesterday, anti-hero is very likely to surpass shake it off’s amount of weeks in the top 10 of the Hot 100. It may not win soty/roty, but it’s far from having reached its final monument, especially since the tour starts tomorrow and the song will reach #1 on Adult Contemporary Radio tomorrow as well.
Lavender Smash creeping up to the Top 10 as well. We love to see it.
Seems like the momentum is very much aliveReplyMarch 11, 2023 at 6:34 am #1205342660
Not looking good so far. Number 2 debut in Billboard 200 for Miley somehow I guess
Even #3. Twice could be #2 because of high pure salesReplyMarch 11, 2023 at 5:20 am #1205342604
he/she literally just showed you why taylor was way bigger than katy and gaga by listing ther album’s total units sold/riaa certifications. use your swiss-cheese brain, jeez.
That user doesn’t care. He hates Taylor. He admitted it. He lives in a fairytale where she’s not the biggest popstar on the planetReplyMarch 11, 2023 at 5:16 am #1205342600
Back to the American Music Awards. I won’t acknowledge these Taylor Swift trolls from now on. I believe that SZA will have the most nominations. If not her, then Drake will. Any other thoughts or predictions?
Yes. Taylor Swift is going to sweep! 🏆March 10, 2023 at 8:39 am #1205341601
You need to get a life, you pathetic Swiftie. Trying to rewrite history to support your fave. Taylor WAS NEVER bigger than Gaga and Katy in their peaks especially worldwide. Using some bias magazine cover from circa 2014 to prove your point? Wow. The Fame/Monster and Teenage Dream were monster hit albums. Fearless and especially Speak Now can’t compare. Heck, even Bieber was doing better than her with My World 2.0 and other albums he had during that era. I won’t start with Adele. I know that’ll trigger you again. Swift is basically the mean, popular high school girl who wouldn’t include you in her “squad”. The same squad that gives you the same vibe as “you can’t sit with us”. Her sales were on a downhill slide until recently using desperate tactics to show people that she’s still relevant. Taylor is mildly talented and doesn’t know who you are. Your love of, your delusions, and your obsession with her is no different than the weirdos who try to go to her New York apartment and have been issued restraining orders.
With all due respect i’m not the one fuming from the mouth about a popstar or hurling insults at a stranger on the internet. She might not know who I am but at least her music means something to me and has brought me joy in plenty of stages of my life. I can’t say the same about a hater who knows every single detail about her life and all of her wrongdoings. Now please tell me which one is worse or as you put it, more pathetic? 😩

Lol. Look at the certifications on The Fame, The Fame Monster, Teenage Dream, etc. and compare it to Fearless and Speak Now. Boom. At the time she was local. Keep using only the US as an excuse.
Fearless – Diamond
Teenage Dream – 9x platinum
The Fame Monster – 5× Platinum
Speak Now – 7x Platinum
Prism – 5x platinum
Bortn This Way – 4x platinum
Red – 7x platinum
Witness – N/A
Artpop – Platinum
Let me stop before comparing their fifth albums
This thread is about the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS so it’s not an excuse but rather on topic. Cry about it later 😭
For the record, Taylor’s career is factually bigger than Gaga’s and Katy’s combined. She has more overall units, she’s sold more albums, more concert tickets, has a higher tour gross, has more streams, more followers, more engagement, more acclaim and the gap is only going to get bigger. The only place they beat here is single sales.
If you want to call Taylor local, you’re only making them look worse. Two global superstars can’t outsell the local, untalented country girl combined? What went wrong? Embarrassing!ReplyMarch 10, 2023 at 8:17 am #1205341552
taylor swift is SO pathetic and her swifitie fans really dont think she seek validation i really feel sorry for her because shes one of the biggest artist of the world yet only swifities cares for her but anyway….
Her fans and you because it seems like you think about her quite a lot to have formed such a radical opinion. Please come join us in the real world where the average person does not care about any celebrities.
So pathetic <3
Taylor Swift is currently #3 on monthly listeners on Spotify and the truth sometimes hurts.March 4, 2023 at 10:08 am #1205331767
There we go. I thought Taylor was cool back in the day, but as time goes on…I don’t know. Never was a fan. She was just okay. It used to be Little Monsters vs Katycats a decade ago and now a certain percentage of those fanbases have latched on to or jumped ship to Swift’s fan army and a majority of those fans think they’re the superior fan army in the western world. Her records have sold less and less since Reputation and then Lover and her other two studio albums had less than stellar first week sales. Then all of a sudden, she’s selling a million records in the first week again? What was different from then and now? Selling multiple versions of her album and releasing various remixes of her lead single. And in the past few years has purposely screwed Drake, Olivia, and many others on the charts. And the two that I mentioned made their feelings clear in interviews or social media. And then used sympathy and social media to look like a victim of societal norms and beefs/feuds so she can continue to look like America’s angel. I could go on.
This was a decade ago:
Taylor Swift was certainly bigger than Katy and Gaga then too. Red literally sold 1.2m copies first week and stayed #1 for 7 weeks which is longer than any Katy or Gaga album
Anyways, please don’t go on. This seems like a very personal topic to you and it’s not that serious. Grass needs to be touchedReplyMarch 4, 2023 at 9:49 am #1205331733
Taylor is not the only one who has many fans. Other artists also have many fans but unlike her they are not desperate for awards. Have you seen the American Music Awards last year? a. Taylor won many awards in AMA, but the award show received its lowest ratings in music history. b. Swift movies like Cats in 2019 and Amsterdam 2022 – bombed or flopped at the box office. c. It has been awhile since Taylor had an organic number 1 song on the chart, except if she released multiple remixes. d. This taylor is not the taylor I used to love… who gives credit to whoever she wants — as her fans say.
I literally never said that only Taylor Swift has fans. I said she had the most. Anti-Hero literally returned to #1 weeks after those remixes were available and it also debuted at #1 with some of the biggest streams for a song ever without any remixes available. Is it really worth your time re-writing history to make a point?
Anyways, talking about movies, especially one where she was on screen for less than five minutes is extremely transparent but you do you. This is why Taylor’s success and dominance continues to shock her “haters”. You’ll ignore context and run with anything to convince yourself her power is fading. Like using live TV ratings as a measure of anything like this was the 90s, downplaying album that debuted with +800k units or using terms like “organic” or “inorganic” to talk about undeniable smash hits.
Back to real life: 13 days until the biggest female TOUR of all-time and one of the biggest in history starts! We love the best selling artist globally of 2022 (#2 in 2021, #2 in 2020 and #1 in 2019)February 25, 2023 at 5:49 am #1205317407
Classic Swiftie. Let’s go. Adele has a huge fanbase throughout many generations especially older fans. Those older fans who buy her records aren’t wasting their time on Twitter like a certain fanbase. Beyonce and Adele have huge fanbases. Watch what you say. Second, I’m sure you’re the type of Swiftie who loves to dismiss or diminish anything her competition does. As for TikTok, anybody who wants to promote their music on that app can do. The problem is the way she did it. Along with the way she released multiple versions of her mid album, which is why it’s called MIDnights. And the way she stomped on Olivia, Drake, Rihanna, and many others to do so. Drake and Olivia complained about it. I could go on. Scum as hell. If Bieber, Ariana, Harry, and others had a similar fan account like Swift, she would barely be winning AMAs at this point.
Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Ariana and Adele don’t have as many fans/stans as Taylor Swift, especially in the US, but if you want to believe that they do go right ahead. I can’t stop you from living in an alternative reality. I mentioned how Taylor has a lot of young fans which is far from a polarizing opinion to explain why her fan voted awards engagement levels are much higher online and why her tiktok presence matter. Something you quickly dismissed and turned it into an Adele comparison. Similarly, Midnights is also a critically acclaimed album with a near perfect average score of 86 on Metacritic. It’s actually higher and objectively more acclaimed than all of the past efforts of everyone you mentioned except for Beyonce. Nothing you say will ever change that. Listening to it right now and it’s definitely far from MID. Maybe give it another listen? I honestly don’t know how anyone can go from LH to Maroon to Anti-Hero and think that.
I also never diminished anyone’s accomplishment or anything that any other artist has done. I’m confident that anyone with basic english skills or with access to google translate who is reading this exchange will agree with me. If anything, you’re coming off quite bias and even a bit delusional. Taylor Swift is at her peak, charting like five albums every week inside the Top 50 and her sweeping the AMAs against those other artists is not surprising especially in 2023.
the way she stomped on Olivia, Drake, Rihanna, and many others
period. as long as you know it.
And here is the moment that this year’s IFPI #GlobalArtistChart winner @taylorswift13 received her IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year award. Her third time at No. 1, making her the most successful artist in the award’s 10 year history 🏆✨ pic.twitter.com/6hTTE9lQ0m

Hopefully Swift gives us a break for once and skips this year’s show so that others can win too….
I don’t think she needs to attend to win.
Either that or contact the person running @TaylorNation13 to take a chill pill or don’t mention the award show at all. That account is the only reason why she is winning these awards. Harry isn’t doing that with his official fan account. Neither is Beyonce or Adele or Lizzo. They’re not that desperate for relevancy. And using TikTok to promote her new studio album in order to keep up with the times…wow.
Do any of them have as many fans as Taylor? I think Harry might but Beyonce, Adele and Lizzo? What even are their official fan club twitter handles? I’m sure one quick glimpse at their engagement levels will answer the question.
Regarding Tiktok, I think the problem is that a big chunk of Taylor’s demographic is young. It makes total sense for her to be on Tik Tok. Not that there’s anything wrong with promoting your music either… weird argument tbh and it reeks of jealousy. Do you make music or something?
That would be like me saying Beyonce doing photoshoots and putting looks together every time she leaves her house and posting it on her social media platforms is an attempt at relevancy. How stupidReplyFebruary 20, 2023 at 4:49 am #1205310823
Christina Aguilera will never headline the Super Bowl. Her best shot was to be a guest with Maroon 5 and that didn’t happen. Get real!ReplyFebruary 18, 2023 at 5:09 am #1205307302
You can’t sleep on the many POP hits that Nicki does have. It doesn’t have to be Do We Have A Problem or Chun Li. Her catalogue consists of Super Bass, Moment 4 Life, Starships, Bang Bang, Anaconda, Super Freaky Girl, The Night Is Still Young, Pound the Alarm, Hey Mama, etc. she also has major rap hits that she can pull out and guests that she’s featured with to bring out as well. With a good choreographer and enough time to rehearse she’s good to go.
I never said Nicki Minaj didn’t have the “hits” to do the Super Bowl. I was answering to a troll who claimed that Taylor didn’t lmaoReplyFebruary 16, 2023 at 9:15 am #1205305751
Bad Romance peaked at #2, charted for multiple weeks inside the Top 10, was #8 on the YEC and has accumulated billions of streams. It was a massive chart hit. Hardly comparable to Do We Have A Problem, Chun-Li or Barbie Dreams.ReplyFebruary 16, 2023 at 8:55 am #1205305720
Not a troll and I’m a big Taylor fan, but it’s the truth. The Nicki Minaj songs you just discarded will easily be sang along by the audience than say shake it off, blank space, I knew you were trouble, etc. It’s not about charts in this case. Some songs that didn’t top charts are way more popular than some that did. Nicki is huge to general audience, but you underestimate the power of rap. Even Cardi’s Up is more popular than Anti-Hero. The audience will easily sing along when Cardi gets to the “broke boys don’t deserve no pussy” part. Bad Romance didn’t reach number one, but that song is insanely popular till this day. Dedicated fans mostly aren’t the general audience cos the general audience prefer those sexy songs.
No one at the Super Bowl will be singing “Broke boys don’t deserve no pussy” lol
I think you are heavily underestimating Taylor’s reach and GP appeal especially with smashes like Shake It Off, Blank Space, Wildest Dreams, Bad Blood, I Knew You Were Trouble, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Love Story and You Belong With Me. Yes, she also has far more fans than Nicki and Cardi.
You prefer sexy songs tho and that’s okay tooNot now
