  • Mariahs AIWFCIY reached a gigantic 17m streams daily on Spotify. She kinda drives the Xmas season and all these other artists benefit from her, so we should say thank you Mariah. Kylies Santa Baby reached 4m daily streams this year, that’s huge for Kylie. Also, Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry got new peak in streams with their Xmas songs. Ariana got a big 12m with Santa Tell Me, which could challenge Mariah the next Xmas seasons.

    • Guess the stereotype 'Straight men don't like female pop vocalists.' doesn't seem to apply when those songs actually appeal to all kinds of demographics, including straight men.

      • Christmas songs get played cos they are all on the big Christmas playlists. It doesn't really mean anything about artists appealing to anyone. Those songs are also played constantly in shops and in malls and shopping centres and guess what those places use now, seeing as its 2020 and everyone streams music - they use Spotify. So those songs get a lot of passive play also. If you think anyone straight is actively seeking out something like Santa Tell me or Kylie's Santa Baby lol just no

        • I did an advent calendar with my friends this year - posting a different new Christmas song each day of December to break them out of the nostalgia bubble, but I am pretty sure half of them didn't even bother listening.

            seems illogical when I look at AIWFCIY's streams.

              Again I NEVER mentioned AIWFCIY. But if you want to go there how many streams does the most streamed song on Caution have. Why aren't "the straights" streaming that to the extend they stream AIWFCIY ?

                I'm not sure I understand you point?

                I mean why does "Butterfly (song)" have bigger streams than any song on Caution? (and why does AIWFCIY get more streams than My All / When You Believe / Touch my Body...etc) in summer?

                U act like all christmas songs ate only popular bc of streaming and yet there is this ONE song which gets 50k-60k daily streams in summer. It ranks among the top 10 weekly songs in not only what would be Mariah's discography, but also in them other pre-digital era divas discography.

                  Christmas songs are popular at Christmas because they are Christmas songs. Everyone since the beginning of time has listened to Christmas songs at Christmas. Streaming is simply a vehicle used in 2020 to listen to those songs when years ago people would have played their Christmas Compilation CD's or turned on Christmas FM. Christmas songs get big streams and big airplay at Christmas - no surprise there - and that is why they chart. Very few of them would chart on sales only, if any.
                  Don't understand why you are being so argumentative - three days in a row now - over this basic fact.

                  • I think it's a legit question on stevyy 's side, so it's totally fine to have that debate. There's definitely worse than that (I'm thinking of the 'Is X more successful than Y?' debate that seems to occur every few days in this thread.).

                              You should have joined the Christmas survivors in the games section.

                              I listened to over 50 Christmas albums this season. Such a festive time of the year.

                                Thoughts ? Did your fave make the Top 30? I am quite surprised to see Celine sneak in there and other big names not making it at all.

                                  • While the US mostly abandoned artists older than 40 apart from a few exceptions (Maroon 5, Sia, holiday songs), they seem to loved a lot by Swiss people: 5 out of this year's top 10 albums are by artists older than 40 (AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, 2x Gotthard, Bob Dylan).

                                              I own Loud and Good Girl Gone Bad on CD.

                                              I also own 2 J.Lo albums & every Xtine album, except Burlesque. I buy music of acts i hate. well... not hate... but my church forbids to listen to hateful women who talked smack against my god.

                                                  • I own 'A Girl Like Me', 'Rated R' and 'Loud'. I used to buy 'Good Girl Gone Bad' back in the day but lost it somehow.
