Do people actually believe that any of Midnight’s frontloaded success was organic?

Frontloaded success? ny1

 

Following the expectation-shattering blockbuster debut of her new album, “Midnights,” Taylor Swift has coasted to a second week atop the charts, earning the equivalent of another 342,000 album sales, according to the tracking service Luminate.

Although “Midnights” experienced a 78 percent drop in its second week of release — down from 1,578,000 in sales the week prior — Swift’s follow-up performance was still good enough for the third-largest total of the year so far, topping even the debut of Beyoncé’s “Renaissance.” (Other than “Midnights” last week, only Harry Styles’s “Harry’s House” sold more.)

Swift managed to move more than one million copies of “Midnights” in its first week largely on the strength of physical merchandise, including vinyl, CDs and even cassettes. But the album lingers at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week thanks to its consistency on streaming services, where it totaled 294 million plays (down from 549 million).

Combining digital plays, downloads and purchases of the complete album, the second-week sales of “Midnight” were the largest for any album in its second week since Adele’s “25” in 2015, Billboard said.

Swift also maintains a healthy standing on the singles chart, the Hot 100, where she had previously occupied all of the Top 10 — a first in the chart’s history. This week, the single “Anti-Hero” holds at No. 1, with Swift songs also landing at No. 6, 7 and 9.

Rihanna’s new single, “Lift Me Up,” a ballad from the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack, debuts at No. 2.
 

 

Doing very well into her second week. CRY ABOUT IT ny1 

Specially when Taylor has only become bigger. 16 years after her debut. The longevity is real. Some can't handle it. Just when haters thought she was over. This happens.

people literally danced to remixes of easy on me more than the remix of anti-hero.  but keep telling yourself that LOL

considering there's 27 versions of the album that she made her crazy fans have to own every one, are we shocked?  she literally promoted a merch item wanting her fans to buy 4 albums at a time.  the greed is real.  enjoy paying 27 times for her laziest album yet.

I bought vinyl once (in Lavender tay8) like the majority of her 1.3m in pure album sales, thus far. Considering her overall mass appeal and the fact that she broke the first-week streaming record,  I don't think she needed alt versions to sell her album, but keep telling yourself that JustEat4LYFE stan. katy4

she can break all the records she wants with this album, it's forgettable and no one will be listening in years to come. a local artist with no actual lasting impact.

 

and i'd rather listen to just eat on a loop for the rest of my life than ever hear "the lyrical genius" attempt to sing "karma is a cat purring on my lap" ever again

sorry seems like you're missing where Katy begged her fans to buy every version. or specifically made remixes of songs for only a few hours for purchase only. or specifically made merchandise that enticed the fans to buy 4 versions of the Cd/Vinyl to make a tacky clock.

oh right cuz that didn't happen.  and at least Smile has vocals unlike some wanna be singers.

Tell em clap3 Taylard stans think she's doing what everybody else is doing but she really goofed herself with all this desperation. It proved what we've known all along. She's the personification of capitalism and tries to bleed her fans out for their money.

Her fucking tour with the dynamic ticket prices is another scam and attempt to break a record she knew she wasn’t gonna break otherwise.

Literal megalomaniac trash, just like her arch enemy Kanye minus the (open) anti-semitism.

Stream Anti-Hero  

You can have as many versions of an album as you like but it won't matter unless people are willing to buy them. That is organic. People buying your album is organic. If they buy multiple copies, that

she really provides the most satisfying stan experience of any pop girl, always making all the right moves and keeping her stans FED  love that for her and for us
