ok ok first let's see if the song didn't smash 'cause the idiot that made the thread maybe thinks that and then people goes and thinks that but it was not
a year and more than 100 MILLION views for the video (this represents relevance)
#7 worldwide (around 10 weeks inside the top 10) #10 on US radio
#11 on Billboard Hot 100
#8 on US pop songs
top 20 Europe
Platinum certification: Canada, US, Japan, Australia and Italy
anythng new? ok I can agree with that but it was a perfect pop song.
it has great producers Max Martin and Shellback
plus the name of the song was cool and unique.
many of your big faves and their latest singles couldn't do that and YES I'm refering to... Madonna, Britney, Gaga, Beyonce etc..
so the question should be: Should WTH have smashed MORE?
ok thank you.
It did not perform to record label expectations and that is why promotion was severely reduced for the rest of the album. Be honest with yourself rather than plugging in numbers in defense. She can do better and deserves to do better.
Both you and I know that you want her next lead single to be much more successful than "What the Hell".
No. It feels like her most uninspired lead single. I was sick of Girlfriend at one point but at least it felt like something interesting and fresh for her unlike the more dated sounding What The Hell.
It also felt like RCA made her record it to ensure the album has at least one moderate hit.
