    Oh, the streaming argument and people liking it. I guess OTR is a masterpiece then.

    People often like crap. That doesn't change the fact that some people may (rightfully) feel like certain artists are lacking in ballad delivery. Halo is a great example of over the top ballad that does feel quite "wrong" in places emotionally. But Bey can deliver a ballad if she doesn't shout too much (check out 4, her best album).
    An uptempo song is easier to bop but ballads only work and have success when they communicate emotions and people truly feel them. There's no way someone would stream a ballad that much if people didn't feel touched by or connected to it.

    For that reason "Halo" is the biggest and most appreciated ballad in the music industry since Celine's "My Heart Will Go On".

    "Halo" also won the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and was critically acclaimed by music critics and audiences alike.

    What are the chances of the Sewerage remix going #1 next week by the way?

    And let’s not forget that "I Was Here" is Bey's best song.

    Buy and stream:

    Let them talk.
    Halo, Heaven, Flaws & All, Otherside and Bigger disagree.

    That's because you relate to that much more I don't listen to ballads often in general tbh. But Otherside is so magical it makes me hear colors. It's walking over the rainbow bridge in your mind

    True. She doesn't have the emotional authenticity to deliver a good ballad. Even something like Halo feels like from the robot at a factory.

    I love this song so so much.

    If you actually spent time listening to what she is putting out instead of constantly talking shit on UKmix, you would have your answer.

    *plays Otherside*

I think a main/solo achievement carries more weight personally, but I don't make the rules.
    Individual performers do not receive individual credit for a song like that. No one who was on the "Helping Haiti" single for example, received an individual credit for that No 1 in the UK.

    So for example:
    - Katy Perry - ET - legit to give credit to Kanye West
    - Taylor Swift - Bad Blood - legit to give credit to Kendrick Lamar
    - Katy Perry - Last Friday Night - not legit to give credit to Missy Elliott
    - Billie Eilish - Bad Guy - not legit to give credit to Justin Bieber

    And following that 50% rule: Let's say the remix has got a 51% share in week 1, 49% in week 2, 51% in week 3 and 49% in week 4. Should the credit get dropped every 2nd week or what?
    Justin was never credited for Bad Guy because his remix was insignificant and did nothing for the song. Same as Mariah never received credit for Unforgettable after she hopped on the remix.
    The performer on remix is only credited if it accounts for the majority of the chart points and for the weeks that it does. If the original takes over in week 2 or three that is the one that receives credit for those weeks. Hence why Bey was only credited for 5 weeks on Perfect Duet.

    I love the way Nicki says "DOJHA" in the intro and this song still reminds me of a Janet type groove. It's so catchy.

    Congratulations on Miss Minaj for finally scoring her first #1.
    Of course it's happened with her most insignificant and forgettable entry ever but she FINALLY got it, didn't she.

    I think that's exactly what happened with Perfect. The duet with Bey was #1 for a few weeks, and then I don't think she got credit for the final week it was #1 - only Ed.

    Yes, that's how the rule works.

    Nothing wrong with features and duets. Jumping on cheap remixes of established hits on the other hand...
