    You can change the topic title to "In My Defense" Era cause that's the album title.

    Excited to see how Sally Walker performs considering the people in the video. Hope it goes viral.

    This is the best reception she’s had to a song for a while. Despite the face I loved them, both switch and saviour were huge flops. However I do think she’s on the upswing. Kream got the most attention any of her releases have for ages and the video has so many views for a song that wasn’t a hit!

    I think Sally Walker is her best chance at a higher hot 100 chart placement. I must say, her visuals are INSANE!

    4.2 million views on Youtube in slightly less than 2 days. It started with 0.7 mil in its first 16 hours so I think it's growing fast! I really hope this manages a decent upward trajectory and doesn't end up getting 365'ed.

    She just accused Spotify of payola and I think she is right. It’s the biggest new release but they didn’t add the song to any major playlist. What do you think, guys?

    Yas at the YouTube & iTunes debut, tho

    She's right but i thinking that she have to stay calm about this. Shes coming back slowly and start a "fight" with stream platforms important like Spotify could be prejudiced her music.

    Anyway, shes in New Music Friday US/UK playlist on Spotify

    Now that she’s independent, it would be more difficult to be added to any major playlist, unless she spent her money on the payola thing! That’s how these services work.

    Nowadays, it’s so difficult for a single to have sucess without the induction on Spotify’s playlist ‘Today’s Top Hits’! I believe that to belong to this, you have to pay. I like the way the sucess is measure with the streaming, but the payola thing ruins everything.

    Seriously, it doesn’t work like that.
    There’s no payola in Spotify playlists. Even though many prefer to think otherwise.

    There are many artists in big labels ignored by these big playlists as well as several random indie artists playlisted (right now, for example, Alec Benjamin, Dermot Kennedy, Gaullin... are playlisted in Today’s Top Hits).

    Anyway, there are songs in TTH doing bad on streaming and songs not playlisted doing good.
    She was included in New Music Friday’s playlist.
    After her last flops and years since her last hit, was she really expecting to be directly at the top of TTH or something?
    The fact that she’s not Top 200 anywhere (but Brazil and Greece) speaks volume.

    BTW, she deleted those tweets, if I’m not wrong. Guess she realized what a bad idea it was to acuss them and expect them to playlist her afterwards.

    Is becoming a 'massive instagram star' *after* being a bona fide pop star genuinely a thing?

    Yeah, I agree. And also, Spotify, YouTube and iTunes are three completely different platforms, you can't measure the success of the song by two of them. For example, many people thought she was shading Rita, Anitta and Sofia with that comment, but all of them have a great amount of monthly listeners and followers on Spotify, so it makes sense that their song was added to TTH. On the other hand, Iggy is not doing that well on Spotify since The New Classic Era. I do believe Sally Walker will eventually be added to the playlist though.

    R.I.P caters to the Latin market, one of spotify's biggest listener groups.Look at the ww Top50, there are plenty of spanish/portuguese songs. The genre is also what fits most in many playlists curated for the GP. It is clearly the wrong song to compare it to. People tend to forget that the US is not the center of the world. Everywhere else Sally Walker isn't doing that great. She is right she should've been added after they saw the performance on Youtube and iTunes but exypecting it right away was over the top, she herself was surprised how Sally Walker is doing It's hard for her to crack the 200 charts without any playlist inclusion (and being somewhere down at No.20 on New Music Friday doesn't really help)

    Oh pls dont be naive, ofc theres payola involved with Spotify playlists
    I also doubt she expected to be added to todays top hits or #1 in any big playlist but she did probably expect them to at least move her up significantly on new music friday after the early reaction for the song. They also did KREAM so wrong but oh well, she needs to build her presence and following on Spotify/apple music by working with big artists that already get a bunch of streams w their new releases cuz of big followers and being playlist faves otherwise she wont go nowhere in terms of commercial hits with the way charts are set up nowadays
