All those songs highkey flopped too, especially Million Reasons given that was discounted so many times and literally dropped off the charts so many times and kept re-entering (in the lower regions). When she performed it at the Superbowl it skyrocketed but had no longevity (as expected). It was an artificial and local "hit" like Dope. gaga3 

The only hit Gaga has had since Applause is Shallow and I'm very sure it will be her only recent one. gaga3 All her solo songs from ASIB flopped too, so it's most likely thanks to Bradley. lol3 

Million Reasons was the ...Ready For It? of 2016 with literally the same peaks and weeks in the USlol3 At least it was a decent hit, despite all of the promotion Perfect Illusion wished to havelol3

 

I have to say that Always Remember Us This Way and I'll Never Love Again were never really seen as singles. Shallow is frontloaded (with longevitymad1) just like how My Heart Will Go On was that single when people think of the Titanic movie. I honestly think they did pretty well as non-singles, if they would get released and both Gaga and ASIB would make clear it's the next single, Shallow would fall a bit and both would get a cute top 30sia1

It really wasn't a decent hit. Had it not been for the SuperBowl, the song would have done even worse than Perfect Pollution. Gaga could have done much better had she actually bothered to release the good songs from Joanne but NO. She had to prove how much of a great "artist" she is by releasing one of her worst ballads ever as a single.

Her ballads simply aren't good. They never were and they still aren't.

A-Yo, John Wayne and Dancin' in Circles could have easily saved the era. Releasing Perfect Delusion as the lead was the most stupid decision she (or her team) has ever made.

It's what the best song on Anti deserves nicki5

ARUTW still charted better worldwide. nicki5

desperado still sold more and I think that outweighs Top 10 placements in countries who have less than 10 million citizens bey7

Million Reasons WAS a decent hit lmfao1 

Platinum certification, 300 million streams on Spotify, 20 weeks on the H100 with a #4 peak 

it's pretty simple really lol3 

 

I mean yeah ya'll can cling to the belief that it would've flopped without all the promo - which is true 

but the matter of fact is that the sis WAS promoted and that was enough to turn it into a hit  katy8

i think that’s unfair, it’s not like the bradley songs smashed and he’s not the most famous guy around recently, Shallow’s still a really good song

Didn't Rise spend like 7 days at the top of iTunes US and you called it a flop? So why wouldn't we call PI a flop?

Do people not have more important things to do than bitch about chart positions, sales and whatnot? For fuck's sake, this shit is getting on my nerves.   Guess I'm getting old, huh.

It's a bad song
