Is “Folklore” success what “Lemonade” & “ST” aspired to be?
 
Taylor becomes this untouchable goddess with multi-week number 1 surprise album “Folklore”. What I mean by untouchable goddess is, She’s not doing interviews nor promo but still selling the album and singles only by her name.  Is this what Beyonce is trying to do with her surprise albums? 
 

Discuss.

I love them both :angelo:

ST & Lemonade felt like cultural EVENTS. Folklore didn't / isn't. So yeah

All were cultural EVENTS.

Beyonce and Taylor surely know how to make cultural resets.

Cultural events bring the numbers and success with them, don’t get confused by paid media articles claiming things that aren’t true.

 

K bye for now, Sunshine. <3

I am pretty sure Stranger Things was a bigger event than Folklore.

No one cares about what y'all think "felt like an EVENT!". :deadbanana2:

 

Facts > feelings 

OT: All 3 are impressive eras but I do believe Folklore can end up bigger than both :clap3:

Is no promo really something to brag about? I want as much content from my faves as possible :michael:

 

Lemonade felt bigger because it was a visual album while Folklore only has one single so far

Folklore could catch up if Taylor releases a second single 

 

& ST was bigger than both

All 3 were successful. I find it hilarious how this sub screams and cries about “SeXiSm”!! But is the first one to put woman more successful than any of you clowns could ever hope to be, against each other.

How were Lemonade & BEYONCE not as successful, if not, more successful?? :rip: Also the undeniable FACT those two albums made it a thing for mainstream artists like Taylor to be able to surprise drop an album with no traditional rollout. The absolute nerve to claim Beyonce who set the standard failed in comparison.

 

This screams trying to erase a black persons achievements/impact with whitewashing. Yikes.

how could the title be true when those albums came first chronologically? :deadbanana: and especially when S/T was the album that set the standard for what a modern surprise release looks like. must be worms on the brain

Folklore followed Beyoncé’s blueprint. She’s been doing it for years now.

Self titled was a moment everyone was talking about.

 

Can’t say the same for Folklore and Lemonade.

Folklore has the sales but almost zero impact.

They are about the same

The difference is that Bey tried hard to make it an event 

Taylor just released the album and went back to quarantining

One is movie series while other one is an album so what is the correlation? :rip:

 

Also Stranger Things opened with racked up an average minute audience of 12.8 million viewers in 4 days while Folklore had 290 million streams in US first week which makes an 18 million average track so you might be wrong :eli:

Didn't Folklore open with bigger numbers? So were people only talking instead of buying? :huh:

How did she try hard? She put her album with no warning on ITunes, with no news on the middle of the week and did zero interviews for it.

Folklore is following the blueprint of ST so I am wondering what exactly it’s the OP trying to say.

Lol, like dumb birds you guys keep repeating the same thing. The biggest artists of this generation like your fave with Folklore or Eminem followed and were influenced by Bey’s blueprint, just like the reason all your faves now release their albums on a Friday is because Beyoncé literally changed the international release day. « Aren’t true » indeed.

Three successful albums that barely have anything in common.

Didn't she make a music video for each song on the album?

And played with the controversy on lemonade.

Taylor literally released a video and went to sleep
