This hit #1 on Apple Music in the US & Global, and it debuts at #4 on US Spotify + #26 Global.
Releasing a 9 minute video for such a nothingy song is just ??? Life's too short to go through that.
The ten second sequence of her sitting down at :44 where's its just background noise... comedy gold. Video could have ended there.
I wasn't about to give her a bunch of streams, but I tried watching the video and it's just so.. Odd? Shocked at how well the song is doing.
Oh no! This song isn’t good!
When will Adele?
This is holding up well, still sitting at #1 & #8 on iTunes, #2 on Apple Music, and down from #7 to #9 on Spotify today. It impacts rhythmic radio tomorrow but debuted at #49 today. She also dropped a shortened music video without any of the acting bits to push some extra streams on YouTube.
She's on course for her 20th top 10 on the Hot 100.
I wonder if it's really connecting with people or if it's just stans mass-buying/streaming.
I know Spotify filters mass streams on their charts, I remember BTS fans causing an uproar when one of their songs had more "unfiltered" total streams than the number represented on the official Top 50 chart. I'm not sure how it works exactly, but I believe it caps each user at a certain amount of daily plays or consecutive plays now.
The production on this is great but it’s again just another throwaway nothing song.
It would take a lot for me to ever check her after the past few years, but the thing about Chun-Li is that.. It was an amazing song. The verses were fire, the writing wasn't lazy. It reminds you of her capabilities. Queen was solid, and that's arguably one of the best songs on it.
These new singles just don't have that.
And they said Chromatica had no impact!
She got blocked by a children's song, I'm sure her husband loves that.
Thank you Lin Manuel Miranda!!!
I almost spit out my drink
Nicki acting like “no sexual visuals” is some sort of qualifier towards the success of a song?
She gives me Trump teas way too often.
Well it didn’t take long for the old Nicki to resurface
