    If the Billy Ray-less version was only number one for one of it's unprecedented run, I don't think that's as big a deal. Or, if you were being sarcastic, I agree. Didn't realize the solo mix was replaced that quickly.

    J. Lo' s song was an entirely new song but called a "remix". The entire lyrical composition was different with the only similarities being the words "I'm Real"

    I thought the missing word in the thread title was 'boyfriends'

    Is Taylor Swift one of Rock's Greatest Living Tragedies?

    Well, it wasn't Taylor's pipes that put her where she is. Her songs and legs, yes.

    I doubt this even bothers her - she'll just shake it off.

    How do 7-year-olds always have so much disposable income ??

    They don't. It's all streams, badgering their parents to keep streaming the song over and over and over again. That requires zero dollars on their part.

    I'm sure that Taylor cries herself to sleep every night over this injustice, on her mattress stuffed with $100 bills.

    Ja Rule on the charts was crazy enough on its own.

    So how does this equate to a #1 song? Theoretically, can a song be a #1 hit if it generates zero dollars? I suppose this is where the whole streaming thing gets confusing.

    How is it confusing? Song with most streams fit the time period in question is number 1.

    Streams count towards Billboard placing, so as a short answer... yes. Absolutely.

    I remember when Taylor only made half million via streaming one year and whined about it. How my heart broke for her having to crash on friends sofas dining on Cup O' Noodles and touring in a crowded van without AC or heat. Poor thing

    Perhaps she should do a duet with that Sheeran bloke.

    Eh, there are plenty of reasons to bash Taylor, her argument was ill formed and she is hardly struggling in any way, I will say that she still had a point about how unfairly streaming pays artists.
