well, everything you pointed out is correct but to me the PAYOLA!!!!11111 argument is as tiring as the practice itself. blame the game, not the players. Dua's team is also accused of this to no end, m
The payola is literally worse than during Sweetener era. When you look at the chart points literally 60% of it is airplay points. Positions and 34+35 are #1 and #2 on radio despite mediocre call-outs.
screaming at this
i was just playing the new tracks and they all ended before any momentum built
