Cardi B

Part of the reason Finesse debuted at #1 on streaming songs was that the music video was launched alongside the song. I agree that the numbers aren’t earth-shattering by any means but this should easily debut in the top 10 without a video, I don’t necessarily agree that her team would’ve (or at least should’ve) been expecting much more than that after Money missed the top 10 altogether.

I think the addition of Bruno probably raised expectations a bit.

Bruno’s recent collaboration with Gucci and Kodak missed the top 10. Obviously it’s too early to say how it is going to end up in the long run, but the song is off to a solid start.

(And on a personal note, I much prefer this to Finesse).
 
There's extra hype surrounding a Cardi and Bruno follow-up though, because Finesse was so well received. On launch there was huge interest, but as we've seen after the past few days not as many listeners have stuck around.


That's obviously not to say this or Money isn't a commercial success despite not reaching highs, but it is what it is.
 
Money is an average track that got a great video and Grammy performance. There are several clunky bars and times where it sounds like she’s struggling to stay on beat, she sounds much more in command and confident on the verses of Please Me (but maybe I’m the only one who thinks so ddd).

I mean, ‘your pussy basura, my pussy horchata’ renders all of Money (And Finesse) irrelevant.

I’m traveling Chile at the moment and I can’t believe how big Taki Taki is here.

In other news she should have two killer songs and instead released this and Money. Both not bad, but both not the what they could and should be right now.
 
she/her
Please Me reminds me a bit too much of other Bruno songs, Versace on the Floor maybe? (A few of them sound similar though so I’m not sure) but it’s perfectly fine, just not that exciting.
 
Radio is eating this up.

- 19 on Pop
- 17 on Rhythmic
- 22 on Urban
- 47 on Hot AC

Doing decently on streaming to, sits at 6 on Apple Music and 20 on Spotify. I'm assuming she's shot the video? Usually that's the one thing they're late on. Hopefully we get an album announcement within the next month.

Yea, the radio updates are absolutely insane across the board.
 
The astronomical radio spins are falling back down to earth. It dropped on every format today.

-5 to #24 on pop
-3 to #20 on rhythmic
-3 to #25 on urban

It also fell to #27 on Spotify yesterday. I'm surprised they didn't have a video ready to go with this one.
