When & How Did Dua Lipa Surpass Selena Gomez?


GoodGuyGoneGhetto

As of April 2021, both “Dua Lipa” and “Future Nostalgia” are bigger eras than any belonging to Selena Gomez (Globally), not to mention that Lipa’s hits have had more longevity on the Billboard Hot 100 thus far albeit Gomez has had the longer career.

 

In all seriousness...

 

When did Lipa surpass Gomez, and how?

Stupid Love

The year that Hillary Clinton became the 45th President of the United States.

 

Miss Gomez is a legend with an extensive resume and a #1 hit under her belt. Miss Dua has a long way to go to catch up to Gomez's career, and idc how many payola driven hits she amasses.

2018 with New Rules

 

But Dua needs to find another way to get hits because this aggressive playlist payola isn't going to last as long as we think.

BB200 (Top Ten Weeks).

 

Future Nostalgia: 13 weeks

Stars Dance: 3 weeks
Revival: 4 weeks
Rare: 2 weeks 

= 9 weeks 


I’m bewildered. 
 

Is this a result of payola?

Yes.

 

Miss Gomez didn't need a TTH residency to ascend to the top of the Hot 100. :swan:

 

Miss Dua on the other hand had to pull out all the stunts (Remix albums, blatant Spotify Payola, a re-release of her album (after the remix album), a rent-a-rapper remix, performances at every awards show, etc.)

 

Miss Gomez on the other hand may not have the stats, but she has something that Miss Dua is lacking severely in, and that's name recognition and celebrity. :giraffe:

 

Not to mention she's been in this industry far longer and doesn't have to rely on hits to maintain her relevancy.

Selena doesn't take her career seriously. She is in front of the camera since her childhood and i think she isvery tired of it. Everyone has seen her everything and there was this viral hate towards her back in 2016 or something which made her step away from the industry totally.

 

Dua compared to Selena is thirsty for the cameras. She wants everyone to see her, hear her, love her and respect her. She is milking the cow in such a way that it seems like she is dying from THIRST. I respect her will to be succesful because she works hard too.

She’s about to surpass Selena’s total top 10 weeks on Billboard Hot 100 too with only 3 songs 

 

 

It’s now 42 weeks total vs Selena’s 46

 

 

 

& Levitating will remain top 10 for another month at least :eatpopcorn: @GoodGuyGoneGhetto

Selena was never that big let's be honest. Dua just has that star quality that people respond to.

Dua Lipa era with New rules in Europe and FN era un the US so far, it's pretty obvious Dua was pushed as the new artist she is Selena also had big push in 2015-2016 and had her commercial peak in 2017-2018

She hasn’t? Where is Dua Lipa’s #1???

Lipa’s #2 peaking smash hit had more longevity (in the top ten/twenty/on the charts overall) than Gomez’ 1-week #1.

 

Clearly ones peak at the pole position didn’t matter in the end...

 

Or did it?

There wasn't a point when Selena felt above her tbh? Her debut was bigger than Selena's debut and her sophomore was bigger than Selena's sophomore. Not sure what the people in here are smoking

Selena has actually spent 16 weeks in the top 10. everyone knows this.

Dua Lipa has not yet surpassed Selena. she will need 2 more Future Nostalgias to be on par with her in some metrics.

Selena - 1

Dua - 0

 

Top 10 hits 

Selena 8

Dua 3

 

#1 albums

Levitating is on its way. But either way, the fact remains that UK act Dua Lipa surpassed the “sang off-key in my chorus” chick the moment she won her first Grammy. :cm:

Not Selenator using #1 argument

it took her years and dozens of single to do that jjsjsjdjk

 

and about TTH

she had cover + #1 on the playlist and yet failed to debut ay H100

Guess payola only work when the material is good and not basic little single
