Jesy Nelson - Boyz (feat. Nicki Minaj)

  1. It's not the #13 itself... It's the fact that she killed her credibility for a debut on the bubbling under!

  2. Don't forget Nicki is on the track too. With her crazy fanbase she's usually good for a chart placement but this is just... karma.

  3. This, but it's Jesy's

  4. This whole era already feels like it happened for a brief unfortunate moment months ago. Truly a weekend-long solo career.

  5. What "credibility" did she have? She was one quarter of a group who have been - at best - moderately successful in the US (and less so with each album era). There was no one over there at the edge of their seat waiting for her to launch a solo career. And anyone from the UK who's broken that market has done so by offering the US something they don't have already. Not by reheating stuff by American acts from 20 years ago. Even if the song was good she'd have had a mountain to climb.

    As for #13 on the Bubbling Under chart being a good start - how does she build from here? Is she likely to get any major promo slots? I can't help feeling she's already played all the cards she has.

  6. She has an established name with a rabid fanbase attached to the song, it's a bit naive of anyone that thinks Nicki wasn't put on there specifically for that reason and it didn't even help.

    Also, songs that have been on the Hot 100 for more than 20 weeks are deleted from the chart if they fall below #50, and songs that have been on the chart for more than 52 weeks are deleted if they are going down the chart and fall below #25. (The deleted songs are then eligible to chart on the Hot 100 Recurrents chart.)

    So even #100 on the chart isn’t necessarily the song that would have been 100th based on just sales, streams and airplay. #13 on the Bubbling Under chart is therefore likely to have been well below #113 if not for the chart rules.

  8. Why are the American charts so confusing!

    Basically it’s a tactic to increase song turnover and prevent the same songs from clogging up the chart forever and blocking new songs from entering the chart.

    In the UK we don’t have this approach and so Mr Brightside has been on the chart for 84 years dddd.

    Remember when it was believed she'd hit #100 and then Adele would knock her out to the Bubbling Under?

  11. “Boyz” is simply taking time out for itself from its rightful place in the upper echelons of the Hot 100 - or, indeed, any chart - as a radical act of self-care.

  12. I love our charts and the absolute consolation prize that is the Bubbling Under Charts.

  13. I'm crying at this chart position and some people on here a few weeks ago thinking Adele releasing her new song would be of relevance ddd.

  14. I reckon that must have been funnier in your head than reality.

  15. How long until this thread gets moved to ‘Comeback Corner’ please? xoxo
  16. You have to have done something to make a comeback.

    Potential next big things could be more of a fit.
  17. But there’s no potential.
  18. Hmm... She did release something, it didn’t do so great, and technically she is a seasoned artist at this point even if it was as part of L*ttle M*x.
  19. Is she going to get a second single? Nicki doesn’t come cheap so this needed to be a hiT.

  20. Waiting for something like this to be on the end of her Solo Career section of Wikipedia:

    Then for the next section to say she's joined the Loose Women panel.

    In all seriousness though I don't see her getting a second single, unless she funds the promotion herself. I'd love to know how much the record label spent on Boyz.
