  1. The Billboard Music Awards went down today (October 14) at 5 pm PT FYI. Below are a few of the performances + the list of winners:
  2. The new weekly charts, the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S., are based on worldwide streams and download sales and will give an accurate glimpse into the most popular songs on the planet. Launching today, the Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide songs while Billboard Global Excl. U.S. focuses on all territories outside the United States. Both collate sales and streaming data from more than 200 territories, with rankings based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading digital platforms, and downloads from key online music retailers. Source: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/9448370/billboard-launches-new-global-charts Yo, this is AMAZING for fans outside the United States! We will finally have a voice. No more payola and some careers will be over
  3. Folklore went to #5 after the six consecutive weeks on top. In its seventh week, the album sold 48,000 units (she's not a streaming force) to be honest. Several articles claim Taylor put her catalog online the day Witness came out simply to sabotage Katy Perry. Several saw this as a villain strategy. But now it's all love. Anyway, Taylor is no longer #1, but come Christmas season when she releases and ships physical units estimated in the US to be about 3,000,000 total of the vinyl pre orders, once all 8 covers with different bar codes (UPC) ship and scan she will be back on top. The only woman who could end her is Adele. And until Covid is over... reports from actual scientists with degrees suggest a huge and more deadly second wave is expected this holiday season and should last until February. I already plan on going to my grandparents and staying there til the second wave is over. Christmas will not be cancelled and we shouldn't separate ourselves from family Xmas traditions, cos serious depression from the holidays kick in cos loneliness is at a higher peek during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays cos we grew up with that one time of the year. The whole family came together under one roof to celebrate the holidays. Whether ski lodge and such. But business perspective Taylor knows Billboard doesn't count pre orders. She knows her fans have unlimited line of Platinum and Diamond credit, have all bills paid cause most of her fans are from loaded families or have trust funds they are set for life. Don't need to work, everything is paid for. So by having two different ship dates: one for CDs and cassette, the other with the vinyl and digital download with no clothes set for November... she made sure to top the charts during the holidays and stay there.

  4. Billboard is doing the fan army battle of 2020 which is dubbed music March madness. Madonna beat Lil Nas X, a one hit wonder basically by 52.86% of the votes went to Madonna. However, billboard is getting called out by putting an established music legend against Normani who is struggling to get established. I did vote for my girl, But I was alarmed. Madonna had close to 89% of the votes. I actually called billboard out, I said that was uncalled for. You literally set up Normani to lose. My other friends are even saying Madonna is only winning cos Billboard is putting her against artists that have yet to establish themselves, or is still seen in the case of Lil' nas X a one hit wonder, even though he's not, He is still going to be viewed and put against the success of His debut single. The longest running #1 single ever.
  5. https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/chart-beat/9446514/katy-perry-smile-five-burning-questions?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook I found this article interesting. Points were made .. Never really over would be more popular this year thx to Dua and The weeknd Katy was a year too early for that track to be huge. Some suggest go back to her first Album and be the feisty girl who told a guy. You PMS like a bish, I should know. Remember in 2008 as a woman, It was refreshing to hear that from a woman who had the same problems with men like we did. Hot N Cold was everything we wanted to say, but couldn't muster the nerve to say it. Some also suggest move out of the state's and move to a country and find a sound that is untapped. Some also say that Con Calma was her most successful hit during the Witness era, so she could tap into that reggaeton market as well. But one comment shocked me. "Debuting at #5 is an honor, Katy would have peaked higher but not #1. But to be beaten by a Live album by Metal icons Metallica (the long awaited sequel to The Hugely successful 2000 album with the orchestra) has to hurt. Heavy metal is dead, but you lost to an iconic Heavy metal band that remains popular, that has to hurt"
  6. The top 50 albums by women on billboard 200 are determined by how many week's it lasted on the Billboard 200. Technically one group Ace of Base is included but despite featuring two females as the vocalists there are men in the group, Buddha and of course Jonas who is the brother of the two Female singers Malin and Jenny. The top 50 are as follows: 1. Adele 21 2. Taylor swift Fearless 3 Alanis morissette Jagged little pill 4 carole king Tapestry 5. Taylor Swift 1989 6 Whitney Houston Whitney Houston 7 Lady gaga The Fame 8 Shania Twain Come on over 9 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift 10 Paula Abdul Forever your girl 11 Celine Dion Falling into you 12 Carrie Underwood Some hearts 13 Whitney Houston The bodyguard 14 Norah jones Come away with me 15 Evanscence Fallen 16 Britney Spears ... Baby one more time 17 Spice Girls Spice 18 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey 19 Mariah Carey The emancipation of Mimi 20 Avril Lavigne let go 21 No doubt Tragic kingdom 22 Adele 25 23 Miley Cyrus Hannah montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (TV soundtrack/Miley's debut studio Album) 24 Janet Jackson Control 25 Kelly Clarkson Breakaway 26 Wilson Phillips Wilson Phillips 27 Mariah Carey Music Box 28 Ace of Base The Sign 29 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 30 Fergie The Dutchess 31 Alicia keys Songs in A minor 32 Heart Heart 33 Janet Jackson Janet. 34 Jewel Pieces of You 35 TLC Crazysexycool 36 Alicia keys As I Am 37 Taylor Swift RED 38 Rihanna ANTI 39 The Chicks Home 40 Amy Winehouse Back to Black 41 Enya A day without Rain 42 Natalie Cole Unforgettable.. with Natalie Cole 43 P!NK M!ssundaztood 44 Whitney Houston Whitney 45 Celine Dion Let's talk about love 46 Barbara Streisand Funny Girl (Soundtrack) 47 Diana Ross and the Supremes Diana Ross and The Supremes. 48 Madonna True Blue 49 Tina Turner Private Dancer 50 Stevie Nicks bella Donna The fact that the entire top five are all the album of the year from their respective Grammy telecast is iconicish.
  7. Remember in 2018, when billboard allowed fan uploaded videos to count towards charting on the hot 100. Thx to the 19 week reign success of Old town road, Billboard has removed that critieria. There's buzz saying that Billboard is about to adopt the UK critieria of streaming and limit only a few streams to count, and have it only Singles only (Basically cutting out the album tracks) and they are also considering banning Promo singles to chart. Billboard is seriously only capping 20 streams on the hot 100 and Making an emphasis on Album sales on the Billboard 200. The fact these rules are considering to take place as Google announced that beginning in September, they are shutting down their music store to focus on YouTube music. Has people thinking is this their way of avoiding a backlash on the streaming and helping veteran acts who don't pull huge streaming numbers but is a stronger force on the physical force.
  8. Taylor Swift has sold over 500,000 units of her new album folklore in just three days. The album already surpassed the biggest week of 2020 for any album, previously set by Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die (497K). This isn't counting the limited week of physical pre-orders which ends Thursday at 11:59 PM EST. In 2014, Barbara Walters said it best, and this just proves her comments were valid and accurate. "Taylor Alison Swift is the music industry." She's half way to a million! Let's place bets. I think she's gonna outdo Lovers numbers because she has won over fans that normally don't check for her at all with this album. Related:
  9. https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/9424039/taylor-swift-new-music-poll?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter The mixers are not funkin' around anymore.. Billboard does this weekly poll. Asking readers and followers the best new music every Friday. Little Mix is leading. By a lot. They count for close to 70% of the vote. Taylor Swift is in second place with only 17% of the votes are in her favor . But I want the mixers to Know. Madonna won the fan poll of best album of 2019 for Madame X. And that was a success for an 80s act. Since they don't sell that well. But Little Mix will flop in the US. Since Billboard is a global page. I already can tell you Brazil and the UK flood the site and voted for The girls.
  10. Billboard changes rules, no longer counting digital bundles, eliminating the practice of non-manufactured items being used to influence 1st-week chart rankings. This will affect the Hot 100, where it was used as a tactic by artists such as 6ix9ine, Travis Scott, Twenty One Pilots and Justin Bieber. "Billboard will no longer allow sales of physical albums or singles that are bundled with digital downloads to be reported as digital sales, thereby eliminating the practice of spontaneous non-manufactured items being used to influence first-week chart rankings. Only when the physical item -- ostensibly what the consumer is buying -- is shipped, will it be counted in Billboard’s official tallies" What do you think about this? Source: Billboard
  11. Billboard as of today announces no more merch bundles or concert ticket bundles.. Billboard states that the reason behind this is due to artists like Lady gaga, Ariana grande and 6ix9ine took advantage of this, By offering a physical product like a vinyl record, CD or cassette with a digital download sent automatically, But the physical product is 6 to 8 weeks from shipping and being in the hands of the consumers, Billboard calls this an unfair advantage and therefore will no longer allow this to chart cos as we see all these artists ended up having sharp drops from the #1 spot on the hot 100. And as for the concert bundle again due to it giving a huge inflation as we saw with Madame X and Celine Dion. Without this strategy it wouldn't have debuted at #1. Music fans are calling this out as Many believe it's only a matter of time til billboard stops counting pure sales on any charts, thus becoming a streaming only eligible to chart only. @Jordan Miller @Roxxy
  12. Beginning on October 2,2020 Forced Albums + Tickets are no longer invalid to chart. Opt albums, Meaning does the fan want the desired album are the only way to count.
  13. Go to wikipedia, type Billboard icon award and you will see in Red 2021 but It's expected to go to Madonna. Making this the worst kept secret, what's worse The cancelled 2020 BBMAS icon award went To Garth Brooks, an artist who pioneered The Bro country genre which is insanely popular today. I truly believe Billboard caved after Madonna got called out for saying everytime she goes to an "American" award show she is never honored the way she's used to in Virtually international award shows. The lambs called her out saying she made it about her, She didn't mention Mariah Carey, But this is the same woman that said the success of Mariah Carey was due to the dumbing of America.
  14. If one thing can't be denied is Todrick Hall is one of the biggest Black LGBTQ stars. Up there with Billy Porter. But that's not to say he isnt loved by his own community In 2017 he appeared in the Taylor swift video Look what you made me do and became like her spokesperson for the LGBT community. Which has led to some Black LGBTQ community members accusing him of selling out But he finally comes clean. He didn't grow up in a black neighborhood outside the church and family. He grew up in a white Middle class neighborhood Which truly now makes sense. Why most of his employees, etc were white. Cos that's all he grew up around. 90s white middle class would probably be now considered as the upper class in today's climate.
  15. Just casually came across this article with both writers of mood ring on billboard. Check it out, this could build traction for the song. Basically the AMA Jordan did. But with both of them. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/9393539/songwriters-melanie-fontana-jon-asher-britney-spears-mood-ring
  16. 6ix9ine continues to put Billboard on blast. He says his song should be #1 this week, but Billboard is corrupt. According to him, 6 credit cards purchased 30k units of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's song "Stuck With You," which ultimately gave them the top spot. He says you can buy #1s. Industry payola is real y'all. He's trash but I see no lies detected. Billboard, please respond Earlier:
  17. GET HA! Ariana Grande won't put up with 6ix9ine's claims that she and Billboard cheated to get "Stuck With U" to #1 on the Hot 100. He said the #1 was basically bought. Read more about that here. In a new message posted on Instagram, Ari ripped 6 to shreds. Justin Bieber chimed in as well. Why he inserted himself into the drama is not yet known. 6ix9ine found comatose in a ditch. Do you think Ariana and Justin legitimately got to #1? Or was it bought like 6ix9ine claims? Where there's smoke... Let me know what you think. Related:
  18. Travis Scott's and Kid Cudi's song "The Scotts" has debuted at #1. Also, "Savage" by Megan Thee Stallion has jumped from #14 to #4. All the other songs on the top 10 this week have gone downwords. Source:
  19. Well, Billboard went there. While they didn't shade or drag 6ix9ine, they did come out and for the first time ever... defended themselves. As for "GOOBA," only 30,000 views counted towards his video views. The rest of them came outside the US so they weren't counted. They basically said he only won on the streaming songs and rap songs charts. They even noted that his song "Fefe," with Nicki Minaj, doesn't get played on Top 40 and rhythmic radio formats because he's hard to market. Outside the world of rap, he's kinda cancelled. Here's a copy + paste excerpt from Billboard: Read the full article with receipts here. Thoughts on Billboard clarifying things? Related:
  20. Last week. The barbz finally got a good reason to celebrate in what can be described a bad year for Nicki overall. Thx to her controversial marriage to Kenneth petty. Well it appears. Thx to screen shots coming out. Say so is #1. But it's only credited to Doja Cat. Billboard removed the nicki feature. Let's just say. The barbz are mad. Crying foul. Let's just say. Due to her having her #1 stripped. The lambs are having a party right now on Twitter. Acknowledging. Billboard did something right for once.
  21. In a deleted Instagram post. Problematic rapper (how he's still alive is a miracle given he does have a price on him) if you go by street gang code. He's living on borrowed time. Refused witness protection and such. Anyway, he called out Billboard saying as an independent artist. He's following his numbers closely. He knows he has the #1 song in the country with massive streams and video views. But he knows he's lacking in radio support which he expects that to be permanent cos of the controversy around his case. But unfortunately Ariana and Justin bieber knew they were losing a battle. Their just released song was discounted to just 69 cents. They know their losing streams, video views to rapper 69. So this will be a chart battle unlike any we have seen.
  22. Billboard in conjunction with Billboard pride announced the top 20 Empowerment Anthems for the LGBTQ community. Number one Is Express Yourself by Madonna. That did start a war of words with the little monsters and Madonna fans. While both adults buried the hatchet. It does seem the stan war will continue as long as we live. Could continue in Hell as well. Who knows????? The fact that Stronger by Britney spears isn't included in this list has led to a debate and caused minor controversy stating that song helped a lot of her fans to accept themselves and is a modern day I will survive and shall be treated as such. The inclusion of Cardi B's #1 bodak Yellow (money moves) did raise questions especially her comments on the transgender community defending migos and the queer comment (Katy Perry did get major backlash for working with them on Bon appetit. Some questioned if she is still using our community just for money. Dates back all the way to I kissed a girl) and of course wishing someone's mother to contact and die of AIDS definitely raised eyebrows and accused billboard of including a shallow anthem. Some do say the obsession with money and status quo is so 00s mentality. A tired trend that needs to die. Opinions anybody?????
