    Yeah the tendency is to release just singles or release albums in quick succession which often are 90% filler ( Drake & other mumble rappers for example).

    • POP girls should look at Mariah Carey and release short albums instead of super long albums. Short album (9-10 tracks) with every single song being a bop. That's what The Prophet of Music aka Kween aka The Songbird Supreme is teaching us.

        She already had big hype once 7 Rings dropped. Yeah it was the perfect move but TUN is what brought her there.

          Give it up deelishis, Pretty Please is never getting a release.

          Have you heard the leaked FN outtake called Secrets? It's also a midtempo bop like Pretty Please.

              This is already happening in kpop, groups still release full albums from time to time, but they mostly release mini-albums with like 5 tracks every few months.

                  Yea but 7 Rings followed the trendy streaming sound, while Thank U Next carved a lane of its own and sounded like nothing that had ever been a smash hit before. So definitely TUN did it after what was already a Mega successful era for her.

                        Nope Ariana has a comfortable lead on her with her 19B+ streams while Billie is at 13.5B+ streams.

                          I think I've heard it. How dare you compare that to pretty please (Dua's best song)

                            Well Billie has released one album though and an EP/mixtape. two standalone singles. No features

                            Ariana has 5 albums, christmas EPs, live album, standalone singles and many features in her total.

                            But yeah at this rate I doubt Billie will be able to catch up. Rih is out of the game too

                              Like who wants a 14-18 track album in 2020? most people can't make a great long album no matter how many years they work on it. A album with 18 tracks will have at least 12 fillers. Lol

                                • Both “Thank U, Next” and “7 Ringz” are stunning pop songs. But yeah ... TUN was the game-changer and the one that took Ariana to the next level, 7R was slightly bigger but that one just followed all the elevation TUN had done for Ariana first.

                                    Rihanna is eventually going to get overtaken if she keeps on not releasing new music. Sure her catalog has good recurrent numbers but nowhere good enough to keep up with new pop girls who release smash albums every year.

                                      Rihanna will always be the Top girl from her generation but IMO she’s kind of an old thing among the new girls and new generation now. People already have Ariana, Dua and Billie and she can’t compete or keep up with that.

                                      • Rihanna is the 2nd best selling female artist of all time. With hits across the globe. Y'all think she cares about some streaming numbers that can be manipulated?

                                          Yeah but Billie only has one album and an EP. So how can you really compare that. Ariana has far more output.
