I just listened to the album and this is my first visit back in the thread since she was recording it.
I'm catching up and a bit surprised the reception to Magic was lukewarm! Some parts of it blended together a little bit, but I also wasn't giving it my undivided attention. I'm pleasantly surprised the entire album is relentless in terms of tempo.
Right now my top tracks would probably be...Supernova, Dance Floor Darling, Real Groove, Say Something and Monday Blues
Ariana will be tough to budge, no?
Not a hater by any means but she sold 195k sales + streaming compared to her last record's 360k first week sales, clearly a decline due to lack of promo/lead time/radio-friendly material and limited physical copies, so I don't think Little Mix or Kylie with multiple singles on streaming, cassettes, vinyl, signed CDs should have any problem knocking her off. It's not an Adele or Taylor Swift situation.
She’s (seemingly) live on The Project on nz tv now. Same old shit interview questions, neighbours, moving to London, breast cancer, a gold hot pants joke. They couldn’t even be bothered to finish the plug for infinite disco at the end once she’d gone.
Anyway, it is wonderful seeing here everywhere today. So much fantastic promo.
