The injustice smh

 

Highkey shocked Erotica is in this list tbh

Erotica was released in early October, and they moved on to Deeper and Deeper in mid November because they knew Erotica won't be selling the album during Xmas season. And that meant early removal from radios and stores.

Very interesting, thanks!

 

Gimme More is the biggest surprise here as it genuinely is remembered. I guess some of these songs might suffer from being Q4 releases (e.g. Lover)? :duck:

Yeah, Lover would’ve easily made it if it had its full 22(?) weeks counting. And in her case a lot of the other songs were originally promotional singles that she dug back up late in the era and they bombed :rip: 

 

Gimme More is probably the same case. Didn’t it come late in the year?

edit: August 31 so not super late, I guess I was thinking of Womanizer which came in October. But August is still kinda late so that explains it.

Oh well, if Erotica has to die so the best single of the album can live, then that's a worthy sacrifice. ❤️

Katy missing as usual when it comes to “bad” charts :clap3:I’m not sure that Taylor’s inflated promo singles should count. Consider them as top 10 hits is a stretch.

Drake ft. Michael Jackson in 2018 :deadbanana4: Let's say no to when record labels h0e out dead people, please. 

 

Anyway; idk, some of them are more remembered than others, so a chart run like this doesn't mean that much.

Would some of these have made the YE Lists if their runs weren't split among qualifying years? This would probably be true for some of the Sep/Oct releases.

Also, Xscape's "My Little Secret" was a top 10 that didn't make a year-end.

It's one of their most remembered songs so that's wierd lol

Dixie Chicks “‘Not Ready to Make Nice” and Glee’s “Don’t Stop Believing” both peaked at #4 and never made the YEC.

You are correct. I think their infighting affected the way they could promote the single, and then broke up soon after.

Yes, and with no video. The era would have smashed longer if there was a music video.

From the artists I checked, only Avril Lavigne, Céline Dion, Katy Perry, Janet Jackson, P!nk and Shakira have all their top 10 hits making it to BB's Hot 100 YEC.

Wouldn't this also include Selena since all of her 7 top 10 hits made the YEC?

 

Excluded LYTLM as that chart is pending.
