  • So I looked at wiki for Diana Ross to see her stake in the 80s decade thing, and her Hot 100 performance actually makes a decent showing - eight top tens and a few more top 40 songs. She released seven (!) albums in the 80s, a couple which went platinum, but my guess is the cumulative sales might be where it falls apart for her.

      The thing with Diana is that she lacks albums sales.

      Pat Benatar didn’t have that many Top 10 hits (4 Top 10 hits during the 80s) but she had 11 million certified copies for albums in the USA during the 1980s (all certifications given in the 80s).

      • Yeah some of the albums did well, but none of them were a monster smash. Still kind of impressed she had that kind of impact so late into her career.

          Some of the stats for those older female artists are fascinating. They were often flopping for up to ten years before somehow resurging. Dionne Warwick, Cher off the top of my head.

            Barbra’s albums also received a sh*tload of certifications during the 1980s (like more than 20million units)

            Tina Turner got 6,5 million certifications for albums during the 80s (probably 7 million in real sales which is not that far away from Janet and Cyndi) and she hd 5 Top 10 hits during the 80s.

            I think it’s safe to say the biggest female artists of the 80s decade in the US were: Madonna, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Janet Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Pat Benatar and Tina Turner.

            • Speaking of Barbra the names of some of her albums crack me up.

              Her first three albums -

              The Barbra Streisand album
              The Second Barbra Streisand album
              The Third album

              Then later - My Name is Barbra
              My Name is Barbra, Two

              Then she had one called Je M' Appelle Barbra

              And the best of all -

              Barbra Streisand And other musical instruments

                      • So Taylor Swift went more acoustic and folk-ish in 2020 and is proving she can have real success with it?

                        14 years into the music business with the 8th studio album of her career.

                        Kudos to her.

                          I'm not sure how you can determine 'real succes' when the album is only out for 1 day.
                          I haven't heard it yet, but I like 'Cardigan'. It's atleast a lot better then what she was doing on her previous 2 albums for me. Good video as well.

                            Let’s not act as if the album won’t be effortlessly #1 and the single will struggle to reach the Top 40 or something.

                            This will be a success.

                              • If y'all hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't even know Tayloo had an album out. Her album launches used to be events, what happened? No one is talking about it, no promo, no banners anywhere, Dua has more hype for a Spanish single.

                                  She literally announced it 24 hours ago she was releasing something today.
                                  5.05.2009 / 6.22.2011 / 4.24.2013 / 4.25.2013 / 3.1.2014 / 9.13.2014 / 7.21.2016 / 7.14.2018 / 7.15.2018

                                    I don't doubt that with about a hundred versions for her fans to buy + her name. The first week will be huge.
                                    I suppose the first week is all that matters now anyway, but I'm curious to see what a less commercial album without any buildup and promo will do for her in the long run.

                                      No is talking about it, I mean...you are talking about it. So you know she has an album out.

                                      • I have to say for the first time in about 10 years I'm starting to enjoy some commercial pop music again.
                                        it's no coincidence that the trend seems to be throwbacks to the 90's 80's and 70's. I'm just glad we're beyond the plastic lifelessness craze a bit.

                                          That's because less than 24 hours ago no one even knew she was going to release a new album. It was a surprise release, she announced it yesterday and everyone was like WTF!.

                                              Would have been cool is she sang a line or two in Spanish though. "Un dia me amaras de nuevo" in one of the choruses or as an adlib in the outro would have been nice.

                                                  Selling her soul to Daddy Satan right before NR was released really paid off

                                                  It would have been cute if she sang a bit in albanian though if she is so obsessed with making Greater Albania happen
