Though in the US they had only one top 10 single, "I Can See For Miles," peaking at #9.
I feel very sorry for her for not having absolutely everything she wants
The suits have been screwing over the talent since the beginning of time.
"I'mma let you finish but..."
I feel like there out to be some kind of benefit concert to support her in this terrible time
Lemmy (RIP) help you out here...
Is Taylor Swift one of Pop's Greatest Living Tragedies?
Well, not quite everything.
She didn't get to portray Joni Mitchell.....
Help me out here; does Eminem have 9 number one albums or does he have 13?
According to Wikipedia, he has 10 #1 albums which include a Soundtrack and a Greatest Hits album.
But he also has two with D12 and another with Bad Meets Evil.
I was going by what his Discography on Wikipedia said. I didn't see any mention of the D12 or Bad Meets Evil albums.
Well that just breaks my heart. Will no one help this woman? She's in deep trouble.
Maybe you didn't scroll down far enough;
*Eminem production discography
*Bad Meets Evil discography
I know, “Bless her heart.”
Yes, that's probably the reason.
It's considered functionally the same thing these days. Like Bad Bunny being quite possibly the biggest artist in Latin Americ despite most of his hits being features.
The download and the stream put the focus back on the individual song. The single is king again after years of albums dominating the industry.
Each era yields its own crop of stars and superstars. With digital certifications, Swift, Drake, Rihanna, Eminem, and Katy Perry already have sales over 100 million singles each. IMO that more important than how many number ones she has.
It’s all about the money and she has plenty of it
I understand what you are saying, and in terms of assessing the popularity of Diana Ross as an artist, I think it is perfectly fair to raise her success as lead vocalist for the Supremes. She's kind of a special case, much like Michael Jackson with the Jackson 5. But Billboard is not going to change the way they give credit for singles because it makes sense overall. Otherwise, Florence Ballard, Ringo Starr, Andrew Ridgeley and Richard Finch would all rank above Taylor Swift in the list of artists with #1 singles.
Which gives me an excuse to bring up one of my favorite American Top 40 trivia questions. Three of the most successful rock bands in history, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and the Who, only had three top 10 hits between them. What were they?
Answer: I Can See for Miles, Whole Lotta Love and Another Brick in the Wall. Only the Pink Floyd song hit #1.
Which reinforces the point that for many acts, the singles charts don't matter at all.
Kanye wants to give Taylor a hug
I think what Taylor needs more than ever now is someone to comfort her. I am hereby publically volunteering to be that comforter
Are the charts even relevant any more? Do people still listen to the run downs like back in the day? This is a serious question because up to about 1999 I did keep an eye on what was in the singles charts and who was number one, but after that I lost interest but I am not the target demographic any more, but was just wondering if people do still watch the charts like they used to.
Jimi Hendrix only had 1 top 20 single in the US too, which blows my mind, coming from the UK.
