I never said I'd drag her, I'm saying other people on the site will. I'm not that invested in her to care enough to drag her.

Let's hope there are more smash hits on this level in her future :gaycat2:

Yeah. The Disney trinity sold millions a decade ago based mainly on gift cards parents would give their kids.

 

Also, I just thought of something. It isn't the first time we're witnessing this kind of transition.

 

The Hilary Duff, Lindsay and Raven era was fueled by physical copies. They sold albums because parents would buy them for kids.

 

The Miley, Selena, Demi and JoBros era was fueled by digital sales. Kids' consumption still restrained because they didn't have a credit card to purchase online.

raven/lindsay didn't crack the album top 3 though.

demi didn't get a digital #1 until 2020. JoBros 2019.

I hope you keep the same energy if/when she drops a song/album that doesn't smash and she gets dragged. 

This. They will be the first to jump off the ship when she doesn't meet with these high expectations they own selves set in the first place. :dies:

The song's bridge alone deserves the 13M streams. Congratulations, Olivia! 

 

A newcomer broke records with her debut song. The only debut song to debut in the Top 10, Top 5 and at No. 1 on BB Hot 100. Congratulations!

I mean the industry tried to blacklist him for being so gay and femme so not exactly the same as a nice sweet marketable white girl next door. Songs are really good. This is crazy. Cool to see

I used their names for the sake of exemplification, because we know there are many more.

Also, I'm just stablishing there were restraints in consumption from their main demographic and these restraints obviously have reflected in their charts performance. Miley was the biggest of them all because her show was a musical show. JoBros and Demi had some kind of leverage because they had two movies OST-driven. Selena's show had a small exposure of music. That range of exposure also reflected in their charts performances. Though what you can't deny is that in spite of didn't peaking high (even Miley struggled to get top 10s) they all sold millions in the long run.

 

What we will see from now on is this demographic getting more representation on the charts peak-wise, since they will have force to fuel a No. 1 hit something they didn't have. Is it a fair representation of consumption of a whole nation? I don't know.

Yeah... Cool.

 

Clearly my point went completely over your head.
 

:lmao:

 

This is what I find hilarious in itself. :lmao:

 

H.E.R has deep brown skin with naturally kinky/textured hair and is very Afro-centric in both her look and image...

 

Thus I’m not surprised that she wouldn’t be as supported nor acknowledged by most of her fellow south-east Asians in comparison to her White/Mixed counterpart whose features fall in line with your typical, light-skinned Filipino woman.

 

The fact that people didn’t even know H.E.R had a Filipino mother (and a Black Father), yet automatically claim Rodrigo as being Filipino despite having a White Mother is certainly interesting...but NOT shocking AT ALL!

 

Yes. She is. She’s spoken about it numerous times also. 
 

 

I’m also Black/Jamaican & Nigerian (Mother) and mixed South-East Asian/Malaysian (Father) and I’ve dealt with this sh*t my entire life so it’s not surprising to me at all. 

 

H.E.R is completely ignored by most of the Filipino community and for OBVIOUS reasons. I’ve seen many excuses that it’s because she sings “R&B/Hip Hop” music which is absolute bullsh*t.

 

The way they’re up in arms stanning this fair skinned, half-White Woman isn’t news to me. 

Best Part was a Big Hit in Philippines but yeah, I think most Filipinos aren't aware that H.E.R. is indeed one of us :biblio:

How is it clear? Its only been a few days she's on a new artist, word of mouth high right now but will need to keep momentum with upcoming singles. You can think she's gonna be huge based off one song.

What am I missing? The song is extremely basic and she’s cute but nothing special :huh:

Rodrigo’s Mother is Irish/German; her Father is Filipino. HER’s Mother is Filipino and her Father is Black, but I don’t see people calling her Filipino. 

Oh wow I didn't know HER was Filipino. Very cool

Exactly. Imagine Drake's first hit being God's Plan or Taylor Swift's first hit being Shake It Off. Hits like that come once, maybe twice in a career. Getting a hit that huge as your debut hit sets a really high bar for your future releases almost no one can match yet alone surpass. I love Lorde with all my heart but Pure Heroine is still her biggest album era and Royals is still her biggest hit and that happened when she was a teenager. She'll probably never be that big again. Same with Billie Eilish. While I don't think she is done, her getting an era as huge as or bigger than her debut era would be the luckiest of things. 

 

Happy for Olivia and all the success she's seeing with this song but the same ones using her to drag other established legends now will be the same ones dragging her if her next single flops.
