Why is thank u next selling less than Scorpion this year?

Recommended Posts

I was looking at HDD pre 2020's YTD chart and searching for tun since its successful hits and era back in 2019 were that big, but couldnt find it. Is it kinda forgotten already? Scorpion is one of the biggest albums from Drake which is 1 year old but we can take as an excuse that it was really massive than tun, but also Billie which released at the same time is at #2 this year. Why isn't Ariana selling more of her catalog, is something wrong? Discuss, gurls!

TUN is a bad album. That's why. The only good song in it was Ghostin.

Scorpion: 25 songs

TUN: 12 songs

 

Scorpion: 7 singles

TUN: 3 singles

 

Scorpion:

The album's promotion on the streaming service Spotify attracted some controversy from its subscribers for what they perceived to be excessive promotion, with Drake appearing in most of the service's editorial playlists, including ones which he had nothing to do with, such as those for electronic dance music and even gospel music.

TUN was released at the beginning of 2019, and the era died not long after the album was released. It's been lingering in the 50-100 area of the Billboard 200 for all 2020:michael:

oops, that's why the singles seemed so old to me :deadbanana4: he had 3 #1s and more top 10, i don't know why they expect ariana to do better than the biggest male artist in the usa :rip: that's like asking why she's not doing better than adele

it's kind of annoying that she squandered the hype and released those dud standalone singles last year. her stans press billie for "milking" the era but that's what you should do when you're at a peak imo

If you’re gonna include promo singles or videos for WWAFA then you can add Imagine and IMH to TUN as well :rip:

 

OT: Because Ariana doesn’t sell albums.

yeah, I was mostly referring to ariana stans on twitter. I know she was working a lot during TUN era but I really can't stand how she treated that album :skull: like...TUN is gonna stall on this list when she could've kicked some men off 

 

maybe she could've transitioned into being more of an albums artist if she released more singles and promoted more but we'll never know now :skull:
