The disrespect to my indie fave ALFONSO X EL SABIO is not cute.

 

Let me go and stream his biggest smash "Cantiga No. 10" to celebrate this achievement :clap3:

Pachelbel was the 4th biggest act to come out of the 17th century behind Bach (5.3m) Vivaldi (2,7m) and Handel (1,9m) with 1.2 million monthly listeners :clap3:

He has a whole century to his advantage! Beethoven will outsell despite debuting two centuries after

You can’t just go from WW to US only so Taylor can be #1. How does no one else see anything wrong with that? #1 this century is Eminem.
