I was just at Target and I have to give Taylor credit on one thing. She does promo very well. When will Britney?

More artists should release this special editions, but only the japanese market does it.

Right? When will will britney indeed? Glory was literally hiding under other CDs that had already been out months before :imok:

I remember in that vogue 70-something questions thing Taylor said if she wasnt a musician she would do advertising so Im guessing its something she enjoys doing

Taylor has been forever stuck in between her BOMT and Ooops I did it again eras. Success wise - that's great, but song wise and lyrically wise she's still singing about having older boyfriends (she's 27, 28 (?) already gurl grow up) and about omg, imma become a bad gurl and my reputation is gonna be ruined, but then i only ever see glimpses of her threatening that sh!t's about to go down (Ready for it), but for the most part she's still playing a victim (Don't blame me, this is why we can't have things), pure mindless pop as she has always done it, with no risky, experimental sounds, mentally stuck at age 20. 

Yes, she's a clever marketing person, but that's no artist to me. That's caterin to the population she knows well she can only cater to - the underaged girl princesses who have their parents shelving money for this marketing ploy, and then some quasi-edgy older try-hards that claim Tay is the new queen. 

What's more, she has this whole marketing strategy to create that fake image that she's a bad girl, and then writes articles about people not being what they seem, and what they present. We get it Taylor, you fake it till you make it (ye you already made it long ago).

I'm not a Taylor hater, kudos to her, I believe she actually changed the new formula to success and more people will follow suit to follow her lead rather than Britney's. 

Britney alienated a lot of youngsters with sudden turn to sexuality too steeply with her third album.

Taylor is only ever so slightly dipping her toes in saying she's that close to idea of forever bringing out the bad side (new Taylor) out there, only to return to the "Gorgeous" dumb blonde/naivette of "OMG you're so gorgeous and i can't say anything to your face because duh look at your face"

It’s crazy how Taylor got all of Britney’s people. She took max Martin and took Joseph Kahn.

I bet she laid in bed staring at her Britney poster saying to herself “someday, I’ll show you, I’ll be better than you. “ like every typical emo teen. :snapney:

I think target’s magazine discount yesterday will give it a last minute boost. The magazine comes with a copy of the album, so it counts towards sales.

Thats what she gets for not putting it on streaming. She would have beat Britney if she did that. Now she has to live in regret. Poor bitch. :bang:

Its no doubt that her team expected her to pull 2+ million considering Adele did that with 25 after her breakthrough album 21. Mind you Taylor had multiple 1+ million first week sales. 25 was Adele's first. Taylor also had both country and pop behind her and for those that dont know, America loves their country music. They can release sh!t and it'll still go #1, but taylor declined from her breakthrough album 1989 which spanned multiple #1s. So did the good sis flop? Did Kimye won?

Are u insane? U seriously think she flopped? Taylor has already sold millions of albums, LWYMMD went #1 and was a huge hit. Her magazines at target were popular and her marketing strategies have killed. How on earth do u think she flopped:ineedthetruth:

Everybody knows LWYMMD was payola'd. Its chart history is proof of that. Her team was expecting her to pull 2+ million and the good sis couldnt do that. :bang:

Comercially she didn’t flop AT ALL, i meand the woman is a commercial genius

musically, yes she did. 1989 was all over the place, yet neither Reputation’s LWYMMD or RFI attracted GP for long.

NO. She definitely didn't flop. Reputation became the best-selling album of the year in just 4 days, LWYMMD went #1 for 3 weeks with no promotion other than a music video, and RFI went #4.

Taylor is taking a totally different approach with this album. She's only doing VERY minimal promo. She hasn't even performed LWYMMD live yet. I think she knows she was way too over-exposed during the 1989 era and 2016 was suppose to be her hiatus, but she ended up being even more exposed because of Kanye/Kim, Calvin Harris, and Tom Hiddleston. So now she's trying to stay out of the spotlight while also promoting an album... honestly it's probably a really smart way to ensure that she can come back fully into the spotlight with future albums. If she would've come back like she did with 1989, the GP would've been totally exhausted with her and it could've ruined her entire career.

So to answer your question, NO. She isn't flopping. She's just taking a very different approach with this album cycle.
