    when it comes to albums... 1 standard edition CD, 1 deluxe CD, 1 deluxe vinyl... not 600 different versions..

    But I'm not the one to talk... I usually buy 3-5 physical + the same in digital format... of my faves albums.
    The rules are the same for everyone. I dont think people realize just how much so many artists rely on web sales to boost their numbers, especially albums. Billboard will not be removing web sales anytime soon, it will kill the industry. They may tweak it a bit. One thing they could easily do is only count the original track and no remixes. Or just count the original and one remix.

      yeah, I know... but these other installments... did not have any of the hype and promotion behind them. I mean the first concert was even broadcast here in GER... the others were not.

        But this is also true for albums.. Its the exact same for Taylor Swift and her eight different album covers on two different formats and then five more vinyls and random weeks where she did signed copies. It was the same people buying the same product over and over again. Check Billies store and see how many different things she has for the same album. Mariah had around eight different formats of her last album. Coloured vinyls, one with a different cover and prints. All these things are for fans to mass buy.

        Also all the BTS remixes are on Spotify and youtube so what do you mean that they cant stream them ?

          I was just curious to see what you might say if I paraphrased you.

              Don't get me wrong, i'm really happy and proud of his success. I wish the material were a bit stronger.

              • Billie Jean is a timeless classic. Do you consider it to be MJ's biggest song (or most loved) ?

                    They are not equivalent to the Beatles lol. They are the equivalent of tinfoil in a washing machine.

                    what they do in the artistic field has no merit, in my opinion.

                          MJ was literally the biggest pop music star that ever lived. His stardom consiting of 5 consecutive +20million selling studio albums won’t ever be matched by anyone.

                          ”Billie Jean” is definitely one of the greatest recordings ever made ... but he also have many other flawless songs like “Thriller”, “Beat It”, “Dirty Diana”, “Smooth Criminal”, “Give In To Me”, “Earth Song”, “They Don’t Care About Us”, etc.

                          Legend forever.

                                      Bey definitely does ... She and J.Lo have gone out to dinners and they even shot a Pepsi commercial together.

                                      Bey at the time was so naive that she probably was clueless about the fact Jenny had a nickname (J.Lo)

                                            Which came first One Thing or Get Right .. cos thats the same song basically.
