For a song by a new act without being a hit, 51m after a month is good. Waves is at 12m after 7 months. Even Love Lies only has 144m views and that was a smash. It's still around Top 50 WW on Spotify and airplay is growing. It won't be a mega smash but it worked as a nice introduction for her solo career.
    She needed that mega-smash to prove her self as a solo artist. She can deliver a hit but maybe not on her own. I still love her though and hope the label tries again with a solo single but I'm afraid the next single will be a feature.

    Maybe that remix with a rapper and a remix video??? Get Da Baby or Meg on it?? lol I know remix videos are a thing of the past.

        She is already kinda happening to be honest! She's not at THAT level yet but she just needs more promo & appearances.

        I actually agree with [MENTION=49569]cheapthrills[/MENTION], while it's nothing special - I really, really like this song and I'm surprised it isn't really smashing (outside Pop radio) yet.

        • The video is really pleasing and its a shame that its for such a non special track

          • I like this now but still don't think this should be the solo debut single for a girl aimed to be a superstar.

                It just peaked at #27 after 7 weeks... that’s a hit these days.

                      Yeah this song did/is doing quite well in the UK honestly. Apparently she cancelled her UK promotion though which is a shame. I feel her promo campaign for this song is a bit off. After all those hype she only performed at the VMA's and then went completely silent?

                      Oh and this song is actually approaching the top 10 on Pop radio, currently at #12!

                          Or better, catchier stuff? Camilla isn't much more interesting either. If hits is what she's after we've had many bland persons scoring hits. Unfortunately for her both this song and her are bland and don't stand out.

                          • Camila doesn't appeal to me either but she definitely is interesting to many people, hence why she was always the most popular member of the group BY FAR. Her look, her Latino background, her tone, her relationships and her celebrity friends have definitely helped her building a strong brand.

                            I know Instagram followers aren't everything but Normani currently only stands at 5.1m followers despite all the appearances that she did, while the least popular girls of 5H has 3.7 and 3.8 respectively and Lauren, who is barely on TV, has 7.4m so I'm guessing people aren't really connecting with her?

                            • Camila is different though. People already have Beyoncé, they don't need a basic version of her. And i love Normani but she needs something to stand out from the crowd.

                                I guess you could be right because I don't follow her that much, but I don't follow Billie Eilish, BTS, Blackpink and other stuff tweens are into these days, yet every once in a while I see articles about them popping up. Camila flies completely under the radar for me. So it might be my personal experience, but she doesn't seem to me like she's much more interesting to people than Normani.

                                  she dated ty so she has a bit of bite.

                                    Beyonce is doing well with mainstream people thank you very much.

                                      Lucky you cause you definitely don't wanna see that video of her kissing Shawn Mendes on Instagram live that randomly popped out in my timeline the other week.

                                        Lauren had been popular before she dated Ty. I think it's because she has this woke Tumblr girl personality and she's very blunt as well.

                                          • But can we really use Instagram as a bar though? I mean while Lauren has more fans that has not translated into a hit.

                                                      I think I've said it before but I really want her to capitalize her People's Choice Awards look as the aesthetic for her solo debut. This Good Girl Gone Bad x dominatrix look really looks good on her and might set her apart from the others.
