Brendon Urie, Taylor Swift 2,941,966

Spotify WW 20 days after release (March 2, 2017)

 

Chained To The Rhythm
Katy Perry, Skip Marley 3,304,019

CTTR was doing more streams 20 days after release despite the substantial growth in streaming over 2.5 years, why is this?

Makes more sense to compare LWYMMD to chained and see who's the winner! Or compare katys recent songs like con calma and 365 to ME!

Seems more fair to me!

We're comparing most recent lead singles.

“Chained” is a good song. “ME!,” unfortunately, is not.

By the way, @ElleDriver, I don't think neither 365 or Con Calma Remix had any of these promo spots:

 

- First-week airplay deal in United States (Apr. 26 - May 3, 2019);

 - #MeToYou Twitter campaign by Taylor Nation (Apr. 26, 2019);

- YouTube notifying people who aren't subscribe to her about Me! MV (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- YouTube commercials with Me! MV (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- EVERY single banner on iTunes (5 banners) (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- EVERY single banner on Apple Music (5 banners) (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- Vinyl single (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- Limited vinyl single (Apr. 28 - Apr. 30, 2019);

- CD single (Apr. 26 - Apr. 30, 2019); 

- Discount on some key markets of iTunes Store (Apr. 30 - May 1, 2019);

Katy Cats are SO brave. Can't wait for Katy's next single since she's so successful. It's gonna be a fun ride. :celestial3:

Not surprised at all, because ME! is ****ed up horrible.

 

CTTR is not amazing either, but it's a much better song and not half as annoying.

Even if they did they'd still bomb like are you really insinuating Katy is more successful than Taylor? 

 

Btw me is still higher on spotify than Chained to the rhythm was at this point ,a little detail you forgot to mention!

You forgot #jesuiscalME, and Taylor Nation instructing fans on how to gift the song and have it count as a sale.

 

Also, CTTR had the biggest push for a song on Spotify in recent memory, so that explains the Spotify stability.

 

Both are flops compared to their previous leads. 

 

The Kats shouldn't bother getting brave since Katy's career is doomed from here on out, whereas Taylor's follow-up will most likely be an easy top 20 debut and we'll see from there, plus her album will probably double-triple Witness's total worldwide sales in the first week.

How is that so when ME! was placed as both a song and a video on TTH, effectively being on the playlist twice, while CTTR never received a vertical video. Plus this is 3 weeks in, so a push means nothing (as seen by the fact that CTTR's numbers peaked in its 3rd week while ME! has been declining since launch).

Yes :rip: It's quite shocking to me considering CTTR was considered one of the biggest flops.

Well the vertical video was during the first week, so a push clearly means nothing at this point as you said!

CTTR was everywhere on Spotify during its first week, moreso than ME! Today's Top Hits isn't the only playlist that matters.

 

Since CTTR was so stable and such a monstrous hit, surely it lasted more than a week on the Hot 100's top 5, right?

You're mentioning the growth in streaming as if ME! isn't higher with less streams. Let's see how Katy's next lead does.
