Blackpink's "The Album" outsold Gaga's "Chromatica". Why?

They also had the 2nd best selling female album in pure sales this year, only behind Taylors Folklore. 

 

K-pop stans and stans in general went about how girl goups don't sell FOR YEARS. Now why is it that BP's The Album was such a smash?

Seems to me like Blackpink didn't need Gaga like many (k-pop) stans claimed. Apparently it was the other way around

Does. It. Even. Matter. 

 

These. Forums. Get. Made. Every. Day. 

 

If you like The Album more than Chromatica, fantastic. You like Chromatica more than The Album, fantastic. But these forums are made to divide fanbases and it's just pathetic at this point.

More talented, better music, bigger artists globally, bigger in terms of celebrity, more interesting and just blatantly prettier :celestial3:

If they were bigger artists globally and bigger in terms of celebrity they would have made the IFPI Artists list and be household names, no? :celestial3:

Because they can actually sell, unlike Gaga, who relies on Ariana and BP for streams :cm:

Sales and streams aren’t the same thing firstly. And even if they were, Gaga does just fine on streaming platforms with and without Ariana and BP. Nice try though 


       Last Wednesday’s streaming numbers:

 

The Fame (Monster) 2,790,134,359 (+2,290,815)

A Star Is Born 3,497,544,892 (+2,171,441)

Chromatica 1,479,453,184 (+1,992,234)

Born This Way 978,005,044 (+750,225)

Joanne 1,197,098,089 (+463,949)

ARTPOP 770,953,261 (+323,479)

Lady Gaga didn't need fans to pool together resources in order to buy massive quantities of albums. Blackpink fans have normalized and made much more extreme the tactics monsters used with art pop and were bullied for :giraffe:
