HIAM: 10 - 4 - 10 - 15 - 21 - 26 - 23 - 25 - 31 - 35 - 43 - 47 - 32 - 51 [3 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 2 - 5 - 8 - 11 - 12 - 15 - 14 - 16 - 15 - 19 - 18 - 21 - 22 - 23 - 22 [3 weeks Top 10]

 :huh:

 

This is New Zealand's chart run :skull: it spent like 8-9 weeks in the Top 10 in Australia and has never left the Top 20 in it's 16 weeks.

Trying to judge very objectively

 

ROM is clearly the biggest hit out of them WW, even in the US it spent almost the same amount of weeks in the T10 as HIAM (1 week difference)

HIAM had a huge start but left the charts completely after 17 weeks, it was a hit but it was definitely frontloaded

Cardigan spent the least amount of weeks in the T10 but who knows it could get a rebound, the album and era is still fresh, it wasn't a hit WW unlike the other two (but it's actually a bit unfair to compare this to the other two, this didn't receive the same treatment and didn't even get the "album push" since it was released along with it)

 

I would say for now ROM wins, it is a big hit in a lot of countries WW, still around the T30 on Spotify and just won big at the VMA's and has a decent shot at a Grammy nomination

Your obsession with Gaga :rip: are you pressed because those ladies have #1 singles in the US and Dua doesn't or what?

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 threads trying to shade Gaga in just one week :biblio: are you ok sis?

 

Anyway, ROM is the biggest song, went #1 in more countries than the other two and I believe it also spent more weeks in the top 10 of every country. 

:ahh:
 

 

ROM is obviously bigger

Obviously Rain On Me 

it’s also the most iconic and the one that was more of an event

Not even trying to sound a tiny bit credible. How is Cardigan a hit in any shape or form but HIAM a flop? Do you realize Cardigan went Top 10 in only 7 countries and missed the Top 40 in tons of markets? That Cardigan was Top 40 on the Hot 100 for as many weeks as HIAM was Top 10? :rip:

 

Little Monsters love acting like ROM is this global hit that's so much bigger than HIAM when it did worse or barely better in international markets too :lmao:

 

Finland

HIAM: 11 - 1 - 2 - 2 - 7 - 10 - 12 - 17 - 20 - 20 [5 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 8 - 4 - 10 - 14 - OUT  [3 weeks Top 10]

 

Denmark

HIAM: 1 - 10 - 10 - 13 - 30 - 29 - 24 - 35 [3 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 14 - 14 - 17 - 23 - 29 - 30 - 33 - 38 [0 weeks Top 10]

 

Sweden

HIAM: 10 - 18 - 09 - 14 - 21 - 20 - 15 - 36 - 39 - 41 - 40 - 33 - 38 - 52 - 59 [2 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 11 - 8 - 15 - 18 - 40 - 38 - 34 - OUT - 35 - 52 - OUT - 64 - 76 [1 week Top 10]

 

Belgium

HIAM: 01 - 05 - 10 - 18 - 13 - 22 - 17 - 20 - 35 - 47 - 26 - 24 - 37 [3 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 27 - 14 - 30 - 19 - 18 - 24 - 27 - 18 - 15 - 10 - 10 - 17 - 15 [2 weeks Top 10]

 

Spain

HIAM: 6 - 17 - 28 - 37 - 44 - 39 - 37 - 36 - 41 - OUT [1 week top 10]

ROM: 8 - 24 - 42 - OUT [1 week top 10]

 

Norway

HIAM: 2 - 3 - 6 - 12 [3 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 7 - 8 - 17 - 19 - 24 - 28 - 30 -  [2 weeks Top 10]

 

Switzerland

HIAM: 7 - 15 - 31 - 37 - 55 - 38 - 25 - 30 - 38 - 34 - 42 - 57 - 70 [1 week Top 10]

ROM: 5 - 12 - 18 - 23 - 25 - 30 - 32 - 27 - 41 - 48 - 58 - 69 - 75  [1 week Top 10]

 

Australia

HIAM: 10 - 4 - 10 - 15 - 21 - 26 - 23 - 25 - 31 - 35 - 43 - 47 - 32 - 51 [3 weeks Top 10]

ROM: 2 - 5 - 8 - 11 - 12 - 15 - 14 - 16 - 15 - 19 - 18 - 21 - 22 - 23 - 22 [3 weeks Top 10]

 

And let's not even get into Asian markets like South Korea where HIAM smashed hard while ROM only went #122 on Gaon or other European markets like France where HIAM went Top 3 while ROM didn't go Top 10  :deadbanana4:

 

It's absolutely laughable how HIAM is stigmatized on ATRL while ROM is praised as this global hit that was done dirty by the US when its worldwide performance is far from stellar and shaky in a lot of territories.

 

tldr; Quit being arrogant because HIAM and ROM are cut from the same cloth. :supaspaz:

Ffff this skull drag :deadbanana2:

 

OT: HIAM

Well HIAM with 0 promo, the MV release 1 month after the song release, doing almost on par to ROM, a song with Ariana Grande the streaming force is impressive tho :gaycat5:

 

I fear Cardigan will OUT from hot 100 before 17 weeks.

so HIAM bigger than Cardigan.
