M.O. Full Discography Rate || #1 Revealed

    Welcome ladies, theydies, and gaydies to, potentially, the shortest “Full Discography” Rate in Pop Justice HISTORY. And what an injustice that is, really. M.O. (standing for Modus Operandi, inspired by that Drake song I think) is the U.K. girl group that has stormed our hearts (if not quite the charts) for the better part of the last decade. M.O. (not to be confused with Danish recording artist ) formed in 2012, after former Mini Viva member Frankee Connolly met and became friends with former Duchess members Nadine Samuels and Annie Ashcroft. Together, they released a lot of bomb singles and covers, two cute EPs, toured with Little Mix (thanks to Nadine's friendship with Leigh-Anne), and experienced moderate success.

    While remaining friends, Frankee left the group sometime around 2016 to focus on personal health. The group remained quiet on social media, performing and recording a bit here and there, quietly testing out a new member without any official announcement until 2018, when Chanal Benjilali became the official third member. The ladies continued to sprinkle out singles here and there, often featuring or being featured on tracks with UK rappers. They paused ventures for a period while Nadine served time for manslaughter, and in 2020 Nadine (again, quietly, and with no real official announcement) left the group. Annie and Chanal … claim(?) that the group is still going, but until we hear word or see the songs released, it’s fairly safe to assume that the ladies have run their course.

    But enough about their sordid and messy ass history. The one thing they managed to get right way more often than not were the BOPS. These girls managed to release banger after banger after banger for much of their career despite minimal funds, iffy management, line up changes, social media twittery (thanks Chanal) and more. They were often championed and rooted for on PopJustice despite the writing that was on the wall. So let’s get to the good stuff!

    THE RULES
    1. All songs must be scored between 0-10. One song may be awarded your coveted “11.”
    Since there are so few tracks and I would actually love to avoid ties, I’m happy to receive decimal rankings. But like, be sensible. Anything more than .00 will be rounded anyway.

    2. Don't Troll.
    No one is forcing you to do this rate, and I imagine everyone who is taking the time to participate in this rate loves the girls, but if your ballot seems suspect, I will call you out on it. (For example, if all the Frankee songs are ranked 9+ and all the Chanal songs are ranked 6- than mind your business because that’s probably my ballot ddddd…..) I’m kidding.

    3. Send your scores to @boombazookajoe by February 8th.
    That gives everyone 3 weeks to revisit their expansive and exhaustive discography, and since we are all fans, that should be more than enough time. If it seems like we aren’t getting the ballots in, maybe an extension will happen, but I’d rather not! :)

    4. Commentary is permitted and encouraged!
    As I imagine this will be a smaller and shorter and less participated in rate, you are welcome to give commentary on as many songs as you would like! I will definitely be adding them to the write-ups. Be salty and sassy, drag a bitch to the ground, or write a four page declaration about how Who Do You Think Of? Is the best pop song of all time. Whatever tickles you pink.


    THE SONGS

    Kiiii. They literally only released two EPs in their long career, and the rest were standalone singles, etc. So I’ve just separated the girls by their release year.

  3. The song list makes me realize how little I've replayed their output from the last few years. I can't wait to fix this, and to also take a trip down memory lane with their 2012 - 2015 stuff. So many great songs that could've been *huge* in an alternate reality.
     
  4. I'm not really familiar with M.O.... like at all, but this is such a short song list, I might give it a shot. UK girl groups don't usually disappoint after all.
     
  5. LOL. Thanks. #ratevirgin

    I was planning on sending private messages to everyone anyway so I’ll get on that in the next day or two!

  6. By the way, this might possibly be the second shortest discography rate, but I don't the shortest one ever will ever be beat nn
     
  7. The M.O. girls really get no breaks, do they.

    (I’m dying at that whole thread.)
     
  8. Here i've fixed the spotify link for you. You can just copy/paste it in the post.



    Excited for this! My ballot is already half done. Hopefully people score based on the songs and not just based on their feelings towards a certain member dd.

  11. It's just a suggestion, but probably the fastest way is to just copy and paste the same post and tag 5 people at a time.

    These would have made an iconic debut album nn. What a waste.
     
  12. I don't know yet what will get my 11, they have so many bops even with Chanal. You can count on me scoring on the higher end of the scale!
     
  13. Ah, so that's how the experienced hos do it. Well, let's get going then! (If you've already posted in this thread showing interest I probably won't tag ya again.)

  14. I can picture some of their songs as featured artists to get lower scores, but most of their bops are 8+ and that really is just facts. Even the Chanal ones. (Hell, two Chanal songs will be getting 10s from me.)

    28 songs asjfdaflasjkl. I could've sworn they had at least like... 40.

    Anyway I love a short rate so I'll be participating!
