I think OTR will not only break Mariah’s record, but it will get like 21 or 22 weeks at #1, lol.

The idea of one song being at #1 for 20+ weeks is so wild like this literally shouldn't happen with new songs coming out all the time :skull:

To think at some point, we could be looking at a song holding #1 for close to, if not a full year due to streaming slowing down chart movement that much.

god i hope not. that would be awful. the irony too is that OTR has blocked like 5 or 6 songs from hitting #1! there's a lot of debut weeks being fueled by streaming then falling off

Billboard only did it that way so it could say the song didnt chart high. Its sleezyAF. I used to think they didnt need competition. 

First of all, remember that Royals went to #3 in Urban airplay (even 27 UAC) and Dark Horse reached #10-12 Urban airplay, but BB didn't let them chart on R&B/HipHop songs either.  Check this out below: Blue On Black -- Five Finger Death Punch, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brantley Gilbert (Country artist), and Brian May is more "Country" than OTR. The verses are completely Country, but with the chorus and solo it becomes "Metal."  Here's the remix

The original 5FDP version  here: 

is even more country, with some banjo and a "Countrier" sounding guitar toward the end of the solo. BOB is a Country/Metal hybrid, and would also rank in the Top Ten on Hot Country songs if BB allowed it to go there. Don't forget that BB never allowed "Royals" on the R&B/HH chart either, even though it was #3 on airplay.  Likewise, "Dark Horse" was #10-12 in airplay, but BB didn't let it chart either.

At this rate, OTR will reach Diamond by the end of June.

The difference is Artpop was Gagas first flop album whereas Witness was Katys first flop album duh!

Old Town Road and Blue On Black both have Country elements. But, Royals and Dark Horse received far more Urban airplay than OTR. But BB didn't put Royals or DH on its R&B/HipHop Chart. I don't think BOB has had any Country airplay, although I'm going to push Bobby Bones to try it after he gave love to OTR.  So, no it's not automatically "racism." Also, "Thrift Shop" reached #13 on the Rock Airplay Chart, but only the 40s on Urban Airplay. And BB didn't cross TS over to Rock either.

After Mariah fans spent ages worrying about better songs beating her record, it's going to be trashed by ... Old Town Road. Heh.

Yeah. UF deserved the record, as it was so huge in every metric. Despacito wasn't so much (I don't think ODS was that great, and UF and its MANY formats was WAY ahead in airplay), although 3 M sales going into early 2018 ain't bad. I do think OTR will reach 1.5 M, which I didn't expect anyone other than Adele to reach.

 

But, UF looked unstoppable going into week 13 and bound for the record. Then SYA came out with the Fast and Furious movie that everyone went to see. So, in wk 14 all of a sudden UF had a contender, but SYA was off cycle (#10), so UF got to 14 wks, Then UF spent 3 more at #2 (which, w/o SYA. would've been 17 wks for UF).

 

One more thing. Despacito was still selling 80k/wk when it was at 2.2 M, then it took a better part of a year to sell the other 800k copies. So, when OTR cuts off, it could do so super fast too.

using @simmnfierzig points:

 

 

Old Town Road

 

week 10 - 787
week 9 - 746
week 8 - 818
week 7 - 707
week 6 - 746

 

so OTR isn't even slowing down and there's no big threat soon so even if it will be losing something like, I don't know, 50? points weekly

 

week 11 - sim predicts 789 points, so that's even rising not loosing

week 12 - 710

week 13 - 640

week 14 - 590

week 15 - 540

week 16 - 490

week 17 - 440

 

 

this song is just insane

Is the week 6 - 10 points was counted using the Billboard official numbers.

 

Curious to see the OTR week 1 - 5 points tho.

no, I used sim points from "final predictions", they may be off something like 20 points up, but  not so much, he is usually very right in this.

Also, it's kinda wild how OTR got this many weeks in a more active season like Spring-Summer

 

 

 

Other 10 weekers like OSD, Irreplaceable, Unbreak my Heart, I will always love you had a lot of its weeks in winter

So Chris Brown would be debuting at #11? :skull: 

 

I can't believe that douchebag is still getting support. I don't like SBS but if she blocks him that is one thing that song would be doing right.

It's all because of Drake, Christopher hasn't scored a decent hit in a while.

The idea of #1 debuts were also massive and next thing you know there was a new song debuting at #1 every month

 

Occupying the top spot for so long is still RARE. Despacito and UF are the only tracks to reach the 14 week milestone since We Belong Together
