    Also what is the point of debuting at #1 anyway only to fizzle out the chart in 5 weeks. All those extremely weak #1 - OUT debuts this year made the #1 position lose all its prestige.
    Yeah the race for number one is extremely close. Mariah is between 4 and 10 points ahead depending on which predictor you look at.

      And he would only ever have two top 10s in your hole as lead. One of them wasn’t even a rap song - more like emo R&B - and the other was whatever this was supposed to be.

      I really went from not caring for this song at all to having this as my most played Mariah song of all time because of the constant mentions of this song from some of y'all here.

        If this was still the 20th century, I’d agree with that. Kween has been making gutterat and emo R&B since I was barely starting to form sentences. This was a very rare exception from when she was trying to gain back her 90s Karen audience.

        Her last top 40 hit in your hole.

          • For whatever reason, 'I Want to Know What Love Is' peaked at No. 3 in Japan and is her 2nd highest peaking single there, only behind 'All I Want For Christmas...' (No. 2).

                  So Tayloo will prolly get it if she pulls out more discounts, payola and cheap tricks. It would be tragique if she doesn't get it despite all the desperation

                  Also I wish Duanal did the same to DSN when it was stuck at #2 by few points.

                  By the way this proves that her success is all organique since she had the chance to payola DSN to #1 but didn't do it.

                  • Taylor has also discounted her discounted discounts to $0,39 - which is the lowest price you can charge in order for Billboard to still count those sales for their charts.

                    • Taylor's new song is now the song which was sold for the lowest price ever.

                      Loverboy (2001) was sold for 49cts in an even worse sales climate.

                            Grl you have zero proof of Dua doing any payola. That's just a myth pressed gheys created out of thin air.

                            Meanwhile Tayloo is pulling all these tricks blatantly in our faces for the world to see. All of that for a song that will drop off the chart in 5 weeks and is already forGaGatten

                              I have no idea what that song sounds like. It's indeed already forgotten.

                                Say what you want about Kween’s iconik 49 cent tactic for Loverboy, at least you got the original and the remix in one purchase.

                                      yes, and people flocked out in droves in order to get a copy. 585,000 physical singles in 2001... is the equivalent to selling 8 million digital copies during the digital sales peak.

                                      • Taylor succeeded: Music has now become a throw-away thing (again).

                                        It goes like this:

                                        1) giving it away for free
                                        2) discounting discounted discounts to 39 cts
                                        3) bundles
                                        4) releasing 35 music videos

                                          Come on now. Anyone who leaves the house OR turns on the TV occasionally should at the very least know Gold Digger, Stronger, N*ggas In Paris, FourFiveSeconds, Power and Black Skinhead.

                                          I would guess that most people my age also know Can't Tell Me Nothing and Love Lockdown, I'm less sure about Monster and Run This Town.

                                              39 ? she dropped it again from 48 ?

                                              if so she has a discount for a discount which was already discounted.
