Can we already deem Billie as a hitmaker?

Bad guy was the biggest song of 2019 and her new single is Top 20 on Global Spotify. It also debuted Top 10 in who knows how many markets globally (ON SPOTIFY - apparently this needed to be clarified). She has put out single after single that has consistently gained massive streams 
 

so can we already consider her as a hitmaker or we need to wait for more singles? 

 

Note: Billie has more +500m songs that other popgirls with only two albums like Dua and Camila. So let's be rational!

Yes, Yes & Yes. :clap3:

 

She’s to the Streaming era what Rihanna/Taylor Swift were to the Digital era and Mariah Carey/Madonna/Whitney Houston/Celine Dion were to the Physical era. :clap3:

 

With only one studio album and an EP, she is already in the top five most Streamed Females ever and is still climbing. :clap3:

 

Her peers, one whose most streamed songs are with Young Thug and her beard, can’t relate. :clap3:

she literally has 2 songs with over 1B streams (they were released in 2019 btw) and one more is about to reach 1B too

but sure, she has ONE hit

literally her album tracks are also HITS, everyone from the GP knows them and recognizes them, which is difficult to get, not everybody has that

with 10 songs approaching 500m, definitely

anyone who says no probably thinks pure sales still matter in 2020

Her streaming numbers are great but she still only has like 2, maybe 3, actual big hits on Billboard. 

 

So no.

Finneas is the hitmaker. He made bad guy inspired by a Selena Gomez song. And half the industry worked with him since then, including Selena herself but also Camila. Billie deserves none of the credit. She is successful thanks to his brother. :razzle:

The usage of “hip” told me everything I needed to know :fan:

I mean yes but doing great on one platform doesn’t change the fact that she can’t get hits on Billboard.

Okay but this thread isn’t about Billboard hits.

Billboard 200:

 

#14 WWAFA

#40 Chromatica

 

Interesting to see what’s “hip” in 2020 these days.

OT: WTPO, lovely, and bury a friend are definitely hits. I mean they’re multiplatinum all over the world so clearly those are hits. She’s gotten Top 10 singles with every song she’s dropped after her album era ended (NTTD was #1 in the UK) and has not faded when looking at her streaming numbers. I wouldn’t call her a certified hitmaker until her next era rolls around but she definitely has hits and is still selling albums, which is difficult to do not everybody can do that.

So then by your logic Justin Bieber, who writes none of his music and produces none of his music, is not a hitmaker. He is successful thanks to Scooter Braun, Usher, and whatever producer of the week he uses :matty:

I said it even when she was at her biggest - her whole thing is a shtick and a fad and it will be over so quickly. You don't get a long, sustained time at the top on monotone whisper singing. 

 

I still think she'll have a Lorde/Lana type strong fanbase/semi-success once all the mad hype has gone away.
