    I have decided that One Kiss is Dua's worst song, that i have actually heard. Honestly it really did not deserve to smash the way it did.

    I think the industry is desperate for someone like Adele. She will likely smash single records before the album gets released.

Adele is basically the female Ed Sheeran so if he’s flopping this hard then she might as well have the same fate as him as soon as she releases again. Regardless, Adele is already 33 now. Even if her next project turns out to be successful it will probably be her last hurrah before flopping into oblivion.
    Afterglow isn't indicative of anything. It wasn't promoted or pushed, just something Ed threw out there for the fans. IT shows nothing. Changing the goalposts again. Now it's her next album after the next one that is going to flop.

Ed Sheerans Afterglow which he threw out there on the 22nd December has no relevance to how Adele may or may not perform so you are really clutching at straws now LOL.

    She obviously won’t be selling 10 million either. She’s a POPSTAR whose last single peaked at #18 on Pop. If the rumors are true and she releases a dance-pop leaning single she will flop. And if her next album is truly dance-pop she won’t be supported by the AC audience either. The only way for Adele to achieve some moderate success would be by releasing another AC leaning album so that way she might gain some support by that audience. She’s not like Taylor who can sell on her name alone and rely on her large fanbase. She’s like the female Ed Sheeran and we’ve all seen how his new single is doing...

    But Adele doesn’t appeal to multiple demographics either. She’s mostly big among the AC audience and we all know they don’t mean much when it comes to streaming. R&B listeners have never used her to begin with and she hasn’t resonated with pop listeners since Hello

    Speaking of Adele, still remember the day she released “Hello” and I got the chills .... such a stunning song.

    I think that of the four mentioned (Riri, Beyonce, Adele, Taylor) Rihanna will do the best. Her streams are just huge.
    Grammy... 8 nominations and 0 wins for ANTI is a big misunderstanding and they will give her AOTY (for her future reggae album) for the 2017 insult.

    And with that she would become the 6th biggest selling albums act ever.
    Good luck selling those copies if shops will be closed due to new variants of the virus

    What Taylor has is consistency. She might not pull the numbers she once had but she will do better than most of your faves.
    I think out of those 3 Beyonce will definitely perform the worst. But as you rightly say we really don't know.

    likeidogoldlink, sis, I was just listening to this: what a bop and a half. Also made Xtina one of the few pop stars ever to reach the top 40 on the chocolate airplay chart. The versatility!
    What a taste.

    Can't Hold Us Down, Tell Me, Tilt Ya Head Back. Her collabs in the 2000s were on point.

    A Song For You is my favorite.

    Why in Gods name does Miss Christina not use that tone/ range when singing in English. That track is better vocally than any of her screaming in English. For a woman that cannot speak a word of Spanish she sounds very good singing in it. I may listen to the rest of her Spanish album.
    El Beso Del Final is the best song on the album for me.

    Youtube is pretty big in Latin America. Latin music videos always smash on Youtube.

    However the difference between Xtina and Thalia is that Xtina had a more global platform of fans and audience so even when singing in Spanish her fans from all over were following (so fans like you even know her Spanish songs) .... while Thalia on the other hand was never really relevant outside Latin America / Spain .... so I do consider Thalia’s results a bit more impressive considering her more limited platform and audience.
    Thalia can be associated in Europe with Telenovelas. I don't know her music at all.

    Adele will probably SELL ten million albums. Who cares about streaming if an artist can still do numbers.

    Maybe not in standalone streaming numbers but she’ll easily pounce her in physical sales which will easily make the difference in SPS.
