    Music > Light Years Body Language >>> American Life (not even close tbh) Confessions >>> X If you wanna stretch it and, for me at least, even it out - I’d say Aphrodite is better than MDNA.

    May the best (or worst?) pair win!

    Admittedly, Madame X aged like milk for me and it has its vices... but it’s still a pretty good body of work and she put effort into it. Her best in a long time + she’s been in the business nearly 4 decades, so that only makes it more impressive. I do not know what exactly Charli XCX serves but it’s not quality! I could go into my kitchen and make the same sounds with a frying pan and a metal knife

    1989 is factually bigger than Teenage Dream, so Taylor. It moved more pure sales units (10.5M vs. 7M despite a rapidly declining market) and more streams despite the anti-Spotify bullshit she pulled. 1989 also had a far bigger tour ($258.7M with 85 dates vs. $59.5M with 124 dates). 1989 also wins by such a vast margin in critical acclaim (76 Metacritic score vs. 52 for Teenage Dream), not to mention that 1989 won three Grammys - even Bad Blood won one... the definition of irony. But Grammys ain’t shit so let’s just stick to the critic scores. Teenage Dream wins by far in terms of singles success (5 #1s and a top 3 hit vs. 3 #1s and a top 5 and top 10 hit), but then again 1989 sold nearly 3x the amount of pure sales in the US than Teenage Dream so that hindered its single performance. As well as the anti-streaming stance. Really affected her worldwide and even domestic chart peaks and longevity since most countries had switched to streaming by 2015. Still, Teenage Dream was undoubtedly bigger in that department. Taylor was also far bigger in the media comparatively but it wasn’t always for the right reasons and it’s hard to measure that. 1989: 3 (Album, Touring, Critics) / Teenage Dream: 1 (Singles) Numerically, Taylor had a bigger peak than Katy. This is a fact, and you can’t argue it when the numbers literally say that 1989 was bigger despite having less single success and not being meticulously planned and promoted for 2 years like Teenage Dream. Numbers do not lie. What we can argue is which era is more iconic, and that’s subjective. Looking at the numbers, 1989 gets far better recurrent streams than any Katy album even despite the late Spotify release and low playlisting exposure she has, so it’s pretty hard to make the argument that it’s less iconic or remembered than Teenage Dream. But Teenage Dream was more perfectly planned and executed as one of THOSE pop eras for the ages. So I wouldn’t disagree with anyone claiming it’s more iconic, I might even agree. But I’d say 1989 isn’t even Taylor’s most iconic era or what she’ll be remembered for anyway (maybe on a global scale, but domestically Fearless>>>) - which is a discussion for another day.

    Getaway Car LWYMMD Call It What You Want Not a single reputation song just jumps out at me anymore, as in, being amazing or an album highlight Still, these are probably my favorites now. LWYMMD is interchangeable with So It Goes and Delicate. It’s funny I place CIWYW this high now because I didn’t care for it for a long time but anyway. We love a grower!

    She’s gonna be the first woman to open an NFL stadium apparently when she becomes the first artist to play at SoFi stadium This is pretty much what I expected. She’s not doing a full tour but clearly wants to keep momentum and appease international fans. This supports my theory she’ll release TS8 in 2020 and fully tour that + Lover in 2021 while she re-releases her old records. Hopefully she does Glastonbury/RiR and adds Asian dates bringing it to a total of like 20 dates.

    I’d say she looks like a mix of young Gaga and Madonna As someone else said - they both have Italian-American blood running through their veins. Not sure why this is shocking that they could have some physical similarities or why you’re pressed

    State of Grace is one of my favorite album openers of all time. It sets the mood, tone, and sonic components of the album perfectly. It just sounds atmospheric and I think it's her best song, so, naturally it would be her best opener as well.

    Basically what everyone else said The image was dark and it does have a lot of heavy electronic instrumentation that’s typically considered ‘dark,’ but the album doesn’t explore any particularly heavy concepts or unique sounds. Even Lover has a few songs which could be considered haunting, which is more representative of ‘dark’ pop than whatever Reputation was. To me at least.

  21. It’s already at 1.05M and has 9 weeks left, so it only needs 83k/week to get 1.7M by the cut off. But I think Billie will end up at 1.8-1.9M by the end of the year (first week of November), so she’ll need to average 95k per week for 9 more weeks to get #1 BB YEC again I think it’s perfectly manageable if she puts out vinyls or merch bundles or something. Her streaming is doing so well (398M already and will be at 500M since release by the end of week 3; 930M incl pre-release streams)... so I’m sure she’ll at least stay top 3 for a couple months. Either way she’ll end up top 3 on the year end chart which is super impressive for an album with only 11 weeks

    Lowkey overrated It probably ranks around 12-13 or so for me on my album ranking. I don’t see it aging well (kinda the Wonderland of Lover), but it’s still a great song. Whew the way I love all 16 Lover tracks!
  23. The total numbers are out there, yes I think they'll post the total numbers alongside the weekly numbers for the top 10 (ie an album is at 1.7M, it did +40K this week) with the Billboard article, if that's what you mean.
