  1. I can name at least ten more of her songs that should have gone number one, but this will do. What a queen.
  2. She looks amazing! Really love the hair, and the makeup is on point.
  3. The fact that this random midweek release could go #1 and is smashing streaming records has me cackling. She really is the queen of the streaming era, isn't she? This is the moment - if she gets the #1, this is a huge shift for her as an artist. She was already the biggest pop artist in 2018, I'm pretty sure - I can't name another one with multiple top ten hits this year, let alone multiple hits and a #1 album - but this takes her a step ahead. When's the last time a pop act scored three (possibly four soon) top tens in a year, actually, or three of them at all? Like, Purpose era? Anti if it counts?

    1. no tears left to cry 2. thank u, next 3. Problem 4. The Way 5. Dangerous Woman "Focus" would be like, tied with "Problem" (I mean, it's a clone anyway) if it was eligible - and it really should be. Better than the "real" lead. thank u, next did a lil' bit of THAT!
  5. WHAT? The damned title track / lead is already out. And it's a little bit snatched! Wow, Ari, sis really did that.
  6. You're not really wrong, especially if they market it as a mixtape and not a "real" studio album - but I think what a lot of fans are excited for is the quality, not a commercial push. Hugely positive reception to the team she's working with and the quick recording turnaround. It's a good sign that she's fully confident in the creative space she's been in lately and is taking advantage of it right away.
  7. The messy title, weirdly quick recording and release (while another two singles are still active, no less), and lack of features are how you know this is probably gonna be lowkey legendary. Perched for her best record and all that tbh.

    I would assume that sources like Pitchfork and Stereogum would have received some sort of press release or promotional notice about the single, and that would have potentially mentioned "Party for One" being the lead for a full album. Until we receive more information from Carly, her management, or her label, I would assume that information to be the most correct that we have so far.

    "Party for One" will be, by a significant margin, the best song any pop artist has released since Emotion Side B introduced us to "The One." Dissenters and heretics can try it but they won't get far, come at me!

    I just think it's hilarious that DJWS said literally "no" to it being a part of the ASIB sessions, and then went on to literally describe exactly how and why it's an outtake from the ASIB sessions. You don't need to walk into a studio booked under the name of the damn album for it to have been out of "the sessions" that went into conceptualizing the project.

    I've had "everytime" on repeat essentially all day, actually.

    "Strawberries & Cigarettes" is pretty cute! It's got that classic Troye vibe to it. One of the many tracks he's got that should have been played up and down the radio across the world.
  13. Incredible that this song has spent so long in the top 5 - like, five months now or something? - when it's really not even that good, for Maroon 5. Get those chart points M5 and Cardi, obvi, but I'm just a little salty that the phenomenal "What Lovers Do" didn't get this kind of treatment. Their best song and one of the best pop singles this decade, and it just gets slept on compared to this one. Then again, I've literally never understood the GP's taste when it comes to M5 - it's always up in the air whether a song will be a hit for them, regardless of whether it's great or totally not. Ooh, snatch that hit, Ari. The light is comin' to bring back everything the darkness stole.

    The last single? I mean it's good, but that's annoying. I've been having dreams of hearing "Lucky Strike" and "Plum" on the radio - I guess some things are too good for this world, though. I personally prefer Blue Neighborhood's length and the specific, like, vibe of some of the best tracks; "Wild," "Fools," "Cool," etc. (really almost every track on the album) are wildly nostalgic for me just because of how much I played it that first year it was out. Bloom excels in specific tracks - I'd place "What a Heavenly Way to Die" at the top of his discography for example - but there's just not enough of it. For me, the album is a moment like The Fame Monster or "Love Without Tragedy." It's a piece of work the immediately strikes you as being brilliant, but is over before you can blink, essentially. I hate getting 10 tracks or less - especially when one is an automatic skip, then it's really just nine!

    I mean I love Bloom but I can get with this perspective, I need more Blue Neighbourhood in my life. He jinxed this one by not releasing the Carly collab tbh. It just didn't have enough Sad Gay Magic in it.
