Ah, sorry - I just meant that I wished "Greedy" had been chosen as a single instead of "Everyday" (and I think it would've done better), but I'm not sure if Ari/her team ever seriously considered making it one. I totally agree that Dangerous Woman had several untapped potential hits!Mainshow wrote:Oh, I had no clue that "Greedy" was meant to be a single but "Everyday" got that spot Personally, I think she did the right decision since I prefer that track to "Greedy" a lot but oh well... I could have lived with a few more single choices in general. That album was loaded with potential hits!
"Break Free" spent a week at No. 1 (turnover on top of my chart is pretty fast), but it's spent 25 weeks overall. Only 17 songs have racked up that many cumulative weeks (out of thousands of entries over the years).Mainshow wrote:Who cares about grammar in pop music? I am glad you love "Break Free" that much, especially since that's the song which introduced me to Ariana! - How many weeks did it spend at #1 on your personal chart?
• I love learning the story of your journey to Ari fandom: so "Break Free" was her first single that really caught your attention, and then "Love Me Harder" was the tune that convinced you to dive into a full album of hers. Both EXCELLENT picks (her single selection was on-point that era), so it's great to discover that they had such a meaningful (and lasting) impact on you!
• Speaking of My Everything singles, "One Last Time" was an early standout on that album that took on a whole 'nother level of significance after the Manchester tragedy. From a catchy "please forgive me" anthem to a symbol of unity and perseverance in the wake of something truly horrifying.
• The quality just keeps on coming with "Breathin" up next <3 In addition to the massive personal-relatability factor of trying to manage anxiety on a daily basis, I also really appreciate how Ari helps to normalize/de-stigmatize mental health struggles by being so candid with some of her own experiences on this track and "Get Well Soon" - doing her part to tear down the misconceptions that such issues are a.) not real, and b.) something to keep to yourself.
SUCH a strong batch, Mainshow!
