I think if they had implemented this a couple months sooner, SFTTR would have been blocked from the top. WFL was huge on Spotify at the time.
Most likely. However, the Billboard format has changed many times over the years and a new rule doesn't change past #1s. So luckily, SFTTR is still classified as a #1 hit. I'm surprised it didn't fall a bit because of the updated format.
I wonder how the next two sites being added - Zune and Sony Music Unlimited - will shake up things. The charts will be hectic for the next month, but everything should be 'normal' again so enough.
It's insane. I think this is the 38th week. It's coming for that all time list.
Though many credit her joining The Voice for reigniting her career, Christina Aguilera attributes her divorce as a "rebirth." With her film debut in Burlesque and 2010's Bionic receiving mediocre reviews, it seemed like Aguilera's seventh studio album would determine her future. Lotus is a dazzling comeback. Where Bionic came off as too conceptually tired, these songs sound organic in contrast, starting on the earthy "Lotus Intro" with Aguilera's soliloquy likening her inner strength to that of the resilient flower. The following "Army Of Me" is a modern disco laced anthem of empowerment. As she sings, "Now I've found my second wind/Now I've found my second skin", she sounds honestly comfortable in that skin. And why shouldn't she? Lotus was recorded in the comfort of her home studio where her friend Cee Lo Green dropped by to pipe-in on the grandiose "Make The World Move" before she and Blake Shelton duet with vocal pyrotechnics in "Just A Fool".
