    This is completely untrue in todays world.

    Even an utter flop like Run The World (Gheys) has more streams and impact than Jeannette's discoraphy.
    It may have more streams, but it's one of my least favorite Beyonce songs ever. It has no melody whatsoever.

    I believe that some albums wouldn't work with each track released separately. I'm thinking of Marina & The Diamonds' 'Electra Heart'. The album only makes sense if consumed as a whole. It's easier to tell a story in 50 minutes than in 3 minutes 30 seconds. I believe it's good to compare it with a DVD or a book. Of course short videos or short stories work on their own, but a 2 hours movie or a 200 pages book can add much more richness and variety to the whole thing assuming that they don't necessarily build up on filler material for most of the duration.

    [MENTION=31471]RayRay[/MENTION]: 'Together Again' is a nice song. My favorite song by Janet Jackson is probably 'Someone to Call My Lover', closely followed by 'All For You' .

    I couldn't disagree more here [MENTION=31471]RayRay[/MENTION]. If an artist is only releasing singles you only get that one side of them (whatever they are doing to try and be commercially relevant). With albums, there are always a handful of tracks that were not recorded to be hits, this is where artists get to explore a variety of styles and sounds.

    Oh wow so I just saw that Dance Monkey is blowing up in the US now too.

    It will probably block any other song from going #1 for all of December.

    Old people bring nothing but regression and degradation like Brexit and Trump so no thank you, I'll keep on happily dragging the dusty olds.

    When it comes to Janet vs Beyonce, I prefer Janet any time any place.
    No one made me love to dance as much as Janet.
    Also, I prefer her voice and songs.

    Sis, this has been going on since we were fetuses.

    You are right. I believe that single performance can make you turn into a celebrity, while album success makes the difference between a celebrity and a star as acts with a long and stable career at least had one defining big album.
    [MENTION=27834]Rihab[/MENTION]: You're mostly talking about young people, while the majority of the population in Western countries are 40 years old and older. And I believe that we need to consider different needs depending on the respective part of society. Capital Bra is successful in the singles department, but will he have a sustainable impact on the contemporary music landscape? I feel like he's the kind of act who'll be considered a 'child of its time' in years to come. Like Wilson Phillips back in the day...

    Imo, it has more to do with the fact that popular music goes through cycles. At the moment, rap dominates all other genres and rap is still a male-dominated genre. Women dominated when pop dominated from 2005-2013 and they will make a comeback when pop makes a comeback OR when more women break into rap (we're already seeing this on a national level with Aya Nakamura in France and Juju / Shirin / Loredana in Germany).
