    I think rap was underrepresented on the charts in the first half of the decade. I don't feel it's a coincidence that it's chart success parallels the rise of streaming.

    So "4" won
    Thats coz streaming is dominated by urban listeners and urban is the in genre right now. It will look different when "generic dance pop / edm" will be dominating yet again in the future.

    I was trying to say if the Album was a IASF 2.0 it would've been over for the girl's

    She was very successful around the world but her last 3 albums performed quite differently.
    Both Lemonade & ST could've moved 6M if her dad was still around. Parkwood is so Lost they honestly have no plans after 1st weeks

    “Single-handedly self-penned” lol how ridiculous

    You do know that the majority of songwriters have writing partners right? You do know that everyone from Adele to Alanis Morissette co-write most of their songs as opposed to “single-handedly self-penning” every single one right? Does that mean they deserve less credit? A good writer knows how to collaborate.

    FYI Mariah’s co-writer & producer for AIWFCIY has said himself that she pretty much wrote the whole thing and his contribution was more on the production side so stop talking out your ass
