TBH Asia really loves him, he’s huge in India too.

 

OT: Imagine being this HUGE in the most populated country in the world, poor local artists who have to rely on a continent that doesn’t even have 1 billion peope to get called global :chick3:

But I was told old albums weren't included in any year-end lists. :cupid: Thanks for the info, sis! :duca:

Distorting people's words again? I told you that they're not included in year-end lists of music apps like QQ, which is true. This list comes from an albums publisher, so why are you mentioning that? You can't come up with something else? The way you keep DESPERATELY trying to grasp for straws is humiliating. You truly don't know when to admit defeat, sis. :skull: 

 

OT: Legend!

Who said that tho? I saw people claiming she's less known in Asia compared to the western world (which is absolutely true) but I never saw anyone claiming she's completely irrelevant in Asia.

Sounds about right. POC solidarity found dead (or was actually just non-existent and only a few tumblr teens believed it existed)

Not ATRL resorting to race baiting when the receipts debunk the local Taylor myth. 

 

POC is such an American concept. Most Asians who are not familiar with the Western culture don’t even know what POC actually means.

Fearless was certified 10x platinum in the Philippines. Well before her first pop era “Red”.

Taylor has always been huge in Asia (prob one of the biggest ones of all time) but I must admit that I find it annoying when Swifties exaggerate this receipt by heralding her as the biggest selling artist in the continent, when in fact Mariah, Madonna, Britney and Avril have sold far bigger numbers and has left a huge impact in the Asian pop scene.

Lol, at Lana being No.10. She should stop ignoring eastern Asia. She was in Singapore once and that was for something random in 2012 :skull:

 

She probably has no idea she has fans over there :rip:

This is about China tho, not Asia as a whole. Taylor is bigger than Mariah, Britney, Avril and Madonna in China :sorry:

Good for her, but its inaccurate to say that she's the biggest in Asia just because she's the biggest in China (having a billion population doesng guarantee huge sales). I'm noy hating her btw or generalizing the Swifties, I'm just pointing out some excesses that some Swifties have exhibited here in this site.
