  1. Yesterday Problématique (alleged debut album under Republic Records) by Kim Petras leaked in its entirety. Many fan rumours say it got leaked because it's a scrapped project. Kim tweeted though that it's not scrapped. She got no approval to release anything. Read more here: Kim Petras Vents Over Not Being Able to Release New Music: ‘I’m F—ed’ WWW.BILLBOARD.COM In a series of since-deleted tweets, Petras said that she was unable to release new songs because her upcoming music is stuck in "limbo." What are your thoughts?
  2. My book The Number Ones, which is coming out in November, is about the 20 most pivotal chart-toppers in Hot 100 history. There’s a chapter on “Baby One More Time” in there, and its inclusion was obvious. I didn’t even have to think about it.The Number Ones: Twenty Chart-Topping Hits That Reveal The History Of Pop Music is out 11/15 via Hachette Books. You can pre-order it here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0306826534?tag=gum00-20 The rise of Britney Spears was a product of its moment. It came out of the convergence of certain trends and decisions and lucky breaks. But her arrival, smashing into public consciousness like a comet into the earth, felt inevitable at the time. Today, looking back, it feels just as inevitable — as though Britney Jean Spears could’ve been born anywhere, in any circumstance, and she still would’ve become one of the most famous people on the planet before reaching adulthood. That kind of feeling can only come out of an earthshaking pop moment, and “Baby One More Time” is nothing if not that. At this point, the details of Britney Spears’ early life feel like the stuff of a comic-book origin story. McComb, Mississippi and then Kentwood, Louisiana. Daycare-supervisor mother. Construction worker father. Southern baptist church choir. Dancing lessons. Talent shows. Boundless ambition. A failed Mickey Mouse Club audition. A move to New York, learning her trade at the Fame school and serving as an understudy on an off-Broadway musical. A televised performance, singing the Judds’ “Love Can Build A Bridge” on Star Search and losing. The real problem was that the world never looked at her as a little girl, even when she was a little girl. Then, when Britney Spears was a grown woman with kids of her own, she had her adult rights stripped away from her for years on end. But that’s a ****ed up story for another column. Britney’s mother contacted Larry Rudolph, the high-powered New York entertainment lawyer who would eventually become Britney’s manager, and then her conservator. One of Rudolph’s clients was Lou Pearlman, the odious figure who assembled the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC. Britney auditioned for Pearlman, who was putting together a girl group called (yeesh) Innosense. Pearlman offered Britney a spot in the group, and she almost took it, but she decided at the last moment that she wanted to be a solo artist instead. Larry Rudolph could help with that. (Britney chose wisely. Innosense was a group for six years, and they never made any hits.) Larry Rudolph set up auditions with three labels, and a 15-year-old Britney flew to New York with her mother. The first two labels passed. Jive didn’t just sign Britney Spears because she had a good voice. The people at Jive knew that things in pop music were changing. There was a whole new generation of consumers, teenagers and preteens, who wanted the sort of big, bright, proudly plastic pop music that had fallen out of favor in the ’90s. Britney thought she’d be making music that was more in the adult contemporary zone; The Song Machine quotes her saying that she’d imagined something like “Sheryl Crow, but younger.” Jive had other ideas. Max Martin did not write “Baby One More Time” for Britney Spears. When Martin wrote the song that he called “Hit Me Baby (One More Time),” he thought it was R&B, and he thought that the song should go to TLC. They rejected the track. Years later, T-Boz told MTV, “I was like, ‘I like the song, but do I think it’s a hit? Do I think it’s TLC?’… Was I going to say, ‘Hit me baby one more time’? Hell no!” Martin also offered the song to Robyn, but she didn’t record it, either. Britney Spears, 16 years old and just signed, was not in a position to turn songs down, but she wouldn’t have turned down “Baby One More Time” anyway. She loved it. Britney flew to Sweden — her first time overseas — and recorded that song and a few others with Max Martin. With “Baby One More Time,” he figured that everyone would understand the whole “hit me, baby, one more time” refrain meant “call me,” that it wasn’t about violence or S&M. Jive changed Martin’s title to “Baby One More Time,” trying to avoid controversy. (Technically, the title is “…Baby One More Time,” but I’m not typing a million ellipses into this column.) It didn’t work. Maybe that weird S&M frisson helped the song become indelible, inescapable. With everything else that we know about Britney Spears’ career, would you doubt it? “Baby One More Time” is not a song about violence. It’s about outright romantic desperation, and Martin’s lyrics are written in near-mythic terms: “My loneliness is killing me, and I must confess, I still believe.” It’s simple pop stuff, and it sounds elemental. Some of that is the sheer blinding focus of Martin’s songwriting and production, and some of it is the way that Britney Spears sings it. Britney Spears never met Denniz Pop, who died of stomach cancer in 1998, at the age of 35, though Pop was still credited as one of the producers on Britney’s debut album Baby One More Time. The night before she recorded “Baby One More Time,” Britney didn’t sleep much. Instead, she listened to Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” over and over, using it as a kind of guide. Britney told Rolling Stone, “I wanted my voice to be kind of rusty… I wanted my voice to just be able to groove with the track. So the night before, I stayed up really, really late, so when I went into the studio, I wasn’t rested. When I sang it, I was just laid back and mellow — it sounds cool, though. You know, how it sounds really low in the lower register — it sounds really ****. So I kept telling myself, ‘Britney, don’t get any rest.'” Pop music sounds like Britney Spears, too. Britney’s whole life story is so ****ed-up and sad for so many reasons, but that story also has plenty of triumphs. “Baby One More Time” announced Britney Spears as a generational figure, a born pop star. She made good on that promise. Britney Spears won’t return to this column for a surprisingly long time, but we will see her again.

  3. 1989 seems to be a matter of when 🗓 after Taylor made a virtual appearance at the Las Culturistas Awards and behind her was a black board that reads 1989 secret session Nashville
  4. Here are the nominees for Billboard Army Face-off. VOTE: https://www.billboard.com/music/music-news/fan-army-bracket-2022-1235083109/
  5. Billboard staff predicts Rihanna's ninth studio album to sell 500K+ in its first week. Harry Styles’ ‘Harry’s House’: Five Burning Questions – Billboard
  6. Billboard does a rundown and credits these musical artists for their show-stopping residences in Las Vegas.
  7. Poor Anitta. Her newest single “Boys Don’t Cry” an attempt to reach the always difficult market for non English speakers is a hit but only in Brazil. The song only charted on Spotify Brazil but hit #2 the day it premiered on January 28 and now is on #30 and the US it didn’t hit the top 200. It also spent eight days in the global rank but about 80% from the streaming was coming from Brazil. To promote the song, she even went to Jimmy Fallon but failed with only hit #31 on Pop Airplay on Billboard. So Exhalers, what Anitta is doing wrong or is it prejudice from Americans?
  8. Mariah covers Billboard with their famous Women in Music issue but not only that, she debuts her NFT on the cover as well. Personally, I think it looks better than Legend X's cover. What do you think @Jordan Miller?
  9. Britney last #1 hit was a decade ago and last year Mariah Carey entered a distinctive club of the only singer to have #1 songs in four different decades. Britney despite not being a chart topper is part of select group of singers that includes Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Janet Jackson, Usher, Stevie Wonder and (ironically???) Christina Aguilera to have #1 hit in 3 different decades. if Britney ever return to record again and if that happens in this decade, would you guys think Britney will have a new #1 since she became the most talked woman of 2021?
  10. On December 04, 2001, the Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Destiny's Child were the biggest winners of the night. Britney Spears performed I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney, on a platform placed in front of the Fountains of Bellagio.
  11. The charts are here and Taylor debuts at #1 on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts. This is the third time she tops both charts after Folklore/Cardigan and Evermore/Willow. "Red" opens with 613,000 units, making it the second biggest opening in 2021 after Drake , while "All To Well' becomes the longest song to reach the top of the chart. Twenty-six songs from Red will also chart on the Hot 100, breaking the previous record set by Drake for most Hot 100 entries in one week. Taylor also dominates the charts in UK, Australia, and Ireland. Adele is expected to dominate the charts next week with her new album 30. Here is the "All Too Well" video for everyone to enjoy: And "I Bet You Think About Me":

  13. On the July 24 chart, “Permission to Dance” debuted at No. 1 with 140,100 total sales, according to MRC Data, with “Butter” falling six spots to No. 7 and Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” holding at No. 2. But then, something highly unusual happened: The next week, “Butter” returned to No. 1 (leapfrogging Rodrigo and others) and switched places with “Permission,” which slipped to No. 7. ''Rodrigo’s fans claimed that it wasn’t a coincidence. @scrappyseal, noting the reversal, tweeted that BTS had “0 GP [general public] support. A real smash is sustained by the GP support.” Another fan of both Rodrigo and Lipa’s, @lipaanostalgia, described BTS as having “fraudulent ways” and its fans as “involved in chart manipulation” and “mass buying.” ARMY’s crowdfunding efforts are certainly near legendary at this point. As screen grabs of account balances and bulk purchase receipts on Twitter reviewed by Billboard show, BTS fans use PayPal to pool money from ARMY around the globe and make the purchases that will count toward U.S. sales. “ARMY WHERE ARE YOU??” @borakore52 asked in an Aug. 5 tweet. “I have enough for 448 sets of 16 PTD plus 24 Butter!! Even if you cannot buy until later, please get your requests in ASAP!!” Some ARMY organizers then offer to reimburse other fans for purchases. The source of those funds remains unclear, and some BTS fans have expressed concern about revealing more about their methods. “Feeling the need to be a bit more discreet on the timeline about what we do and how we do it,” @RafranzDavis wrote during a funding run in early August. “It’s annoying but thnx to everyone that just gets it.” (MRC Data has a standard process for examining any suspicious chart activity; Billboard would not allow sales funded by an act or its label/management to count toward chart performance.) These efforts have buoyed the group’s singles, as they have sailed to the top of the charts despite BTS’ weaker streaming numbers and radio airplay than some of its pop contemporaries. “It’s a fair question,” says RM of allegations that ARMY’s work amounts to chart manipulation. “But if there is a conversation inside Billboard about what being No. 1 should represent, then it’s up to them to change the rules and make streaming weigh more on the ranking. Slamming us or our fans for getting to No. 1 with physical sales and downloads, I don’t know if that’s right ... It just feels like we’re easy targets because we’re a boy band, a K-pop act, and we have this high fan loyalty.” When asked if HYBE itself organizes fans in any chart manipulation, Shin Young-Jae — president of BTS’ label, Big Hit Music (a HYBE subsidiary) — answers with a chuckle. “Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually had the ability to mastermind such a thing?” he says. “I get that there are market developments [related to BTS] that are head-scratchers for some people. But I don’t believe the U.S. market is one that can be handily topped by downloads alone. We think the songs’ impact was shown in many ways, and we are proud of that achievement.” https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/9618967/bts-billboard-cover-story-2021-interview Those users mentioned in the article are currently getting death threats from extremists Army so bless you Billboard, such a moral move to doxx people. U're such an amazing chart. Always following the rules and morals F.R.A.U.D.S. -Allegedly
  14. I thought she was over, a one hit wonder, flash in the pan, how did she do this? https://www.billboard.com/charts/billboard-200 Her songs are also: Happier Than Ever: 11 NDA: 59 Getting Older: 69 Billie Bossa Nova: 70 Oxytocin: 72 I Didn't Change My Number: 80 Lost Cause: 84 Halley's Comet: 90 My Future: 91 The way the haters keep losing and Billie keeps winning
  15. I know this article is from *another time* (early January 2004) when sl**-shaming and the patriarchy were not widely discussed concepts, but oof...it reads as so bonkers today. Basically the article suggests that ***ual explicitness by female artists is one of the reasons for declining sales. Here's a screenshot of the article when it was in print. A condensed version can be read here. I just had to round up the most hilarious quotes: Why would Alicia Keys and Norah Jones be "vamping it up" when they were in different genres? Never mind that Britney and Xtina co-wrote/produced multiple tracks on ITZ and Stripped. Wasn't Slave 4 U during the time Clear Channel wasn't playing her songs? And yeah she would be more "wholesome" during BOMT because she was just 16 then.
  16. Now with touring a non factor in the list for the first time, the global music industry according to Billboard only made 250 Million then the usual Billion dollars annually. Taylor swift is the top money earner with 23.2 Million this year. 10.0 Million even comes from streaming 10.2 Million came from album sales, thanks to the many formats of Folklore, the 8 album covers, the indie signature version sold at independent Music store for 25.00 a CD, the cassette and target exclusive versions, was a big factor how Taylor dominated in sales compared to just streaming Music. Publishing she just made 3 Million.. Everybody else, made under 20 Million compared to Taylor swift as they focused on streaming numbers, than sales.. Congrats, Taylor swift.. @Jordan Miller @InTheZone4Life @Adriannn
  17. Billboard predicts Taylor swift to win album of the year a fourth time with "Evermore" and Fearless to be noninvasive as well and winning best country album.. They predict Billie to win record of the year a 3Rd time with Therefore I Am. But state both Sour and Fellow Grammy fav Billie Eilish could pull the upset on Taylor swift. They state Morgan wallen will not be nominated at all and is banned most likely. Olivia will win best new artist as well..
  18. MRC Data revealed their mid year charts, and No surprise Morgan Wallen is the top artist and Top album "Dangerous" has amassed 2.1 Units, despite the label drop, radio ban and lack of promotion from streaming platforms. The N Word controversial country star is actually having his biggest despite being banned by award shows and other forms of entertainment. The top 3 albums are. #1 Morgan Wallen "Dangerous" #2 Olivia Rodrigo Sour #3 Justin bieber Justice. @Blackout2006 @Jordan Miller
  19. "Butter" is the first song from a group to mark 5 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart since 1996. On June 28 local time, Billboard announced that BTS’s “Butter” had taken No. 1 on the Hot 100, its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States, for the fifth consecutive week. “Butter” also topped the list for top-selling songs of the week. BTS set the record for the longest-running No. 1 hit by any Asian act when it topped the Hot 100 for the fourth consecutive time last week. This week’s fifth consecutive No. 1 extends that record. Billboard’s Gary Trust writes, “Only one song by a group has topped the Hot 100 for more weeks from its debut than ‘Butter’: Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s ‘One Sweet Day,’ which spent its first 16 weeks on the chart at No. 1 in 1995-96.” Billboard shared that “Butter” garnered 12.4 million U.S. streams and 128,400 downloads (a 15 percent increase) for the week ending on June 24, as well as 27.6 million radio airplay audience impressions (a 6 percent increase) in the week ending on June 27. Billboard also stated that “Butter” had sold at least 100,000 downloads in each of its first five weeks, the first song to do so since “Despacito” in 2017. According to Billboard, “Butter” is just the 11th song out of the 54 songs that have debuted at No. 1 to spend its first five weeks at No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100. Of the 1,125 songs that have hit No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100, “Butter” is the 196th to spend at least five weeks at the top.

  20. I've just noticed that mostly Billboard charts are not available in its entirely unless you are a premium member. I don't know since when this has been happening. I remember until few years ago, you could scroll all the charts and see all but now it's not. To be a pro, you have to pursue a $10.99 monthly or $24.99 to include the magazine print issues. The only charts available for free are: Hot 100, Hot 200 and Global 200. https://www.billboard.com/charts/latin-songs
  21. Billboard staff ranked Britney's Hold It Against Me as the 42nd song with the best bridge from the 21st century. They further discuss the songs impact on dubstep : " [HIAM] became the first song to ride a dubstep drop to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- opening the floodgates for about two years' worth of subsequent pop hits to find similar success doing the same". Gaga's Shallow (#6) and Marry the Night (#50), Rihanna's Whats My Name (#18), Enrique's Bailando (#19) and Beyonce's Crazy In Love (#25), Dua's Levitating (#26), Christina's Beautiful (#33), and Miley's We Cant Stop (#44) also made the list. As for the Top 5: 1 - Outkast - Hey Ya 2 - the Killers - All These things That 've Done 3 - Olivia Rodrigo - Drivers License 4 - Ke$ha - Praying 5 - Kelly Clackson - since U Been Gone Check out the full chart here!

  22. Go to wikipedia, type Billboard icon award and you will see in Red 2021 but It's expected to go to Madonna. Making this the worst kept secret, what's worse The cancelled 2020 BBMAS icon award went To Garth Brooks, an artist who pioneered The Bro country genre which is insanely popular today. I truly believe Billboard caved after Madonna got called out for saying everytime she goes to an "American" award show she is never honored the way she's used to in Virtually international award shows. The lambs called her out saying she made it about her, She didn't mention Mariah Carey, But this is the same woman that said the success of Mariah Carey was due to the dumbing of America.
  23. According to Billboard, Fearless opened with 291,000 units becoming the biggest selling album in a week in 2021. The album is also the first of its kind to debut at #1 (i.e. a re-recorded album), and the most streamed country album in one week ever by a female artist. It is Taylor's ninth number 1 album, and her third in less than a year. All three albums (Folklore, Evermore, and Fearless) rank in the top five biggest selling albums of 2021. One word: Queen.
