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

Dua Lipa has not yet surpassed Selena. she will need another Future Nostalgia sized era to be almost on par with her. and 2 more to surpass her.

Actually the stats for Selena Gomez & The Scene do NOT count for Selena's solo stats so nice try but no. What the OP said is correct.

check billboard and educate yourself. Selena Gomez & The Scene is the same thing as Selena Gomez.

 

they are different on spotify because of the slight change in name.

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.

Dua has yet to achieve the quality of Bad Liar, Hands to Myself, Good For You, Fetish or Love You Like A Love Song so no the TTH permanent resident has not yet surpassed Selena :giraffe:

Actually, no it isn't. Selena has had THREE solo albums. Stop trying to spin the facts. Dua is bigger, period.

Does a successful woman with great work ethic threaten you? :siptea:

My top 5 faves are Gaga, Taylor, Ari, Bey, and Madonna. :swan:

 

Dua works hard no doubt, but there's a difference between promo and using your label to SHOVE your music down our throats by plastering your face all over the internet and releasing renditions of your original music to inflate your stats. :swan:

Renditions or Remixes have existed since the beginning of time. Stop being delusional. Gaga has remix albums too and released remixes for album tracks from Chromatica.

It’s literally called promotion? And it’s working for her...FN has 4.8 billion streams and is still getting over 13-14 million streams per day so seethe!

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.

Dua has always made better music but if Selena took her music career seriously she’d be much bigger

You know that Gaga's throwaway remixes with her producers for clubs are not the same as Dua's full on promoted remix album for Future Nostalgia, featuring the likes of Madonna and Missy Elliot. :bibliahh:

Regardless it isn't the same (and don' get me wrong that song with Madge and Missy is a bop so I'm not hating :giraffe:)

 

And Gaga has only like 2 remix albums for records that were already highly successful and amassed #1 hits.

 

Dua is a hard worker and is doing what she has to do, but at the same time the FN era was one of the most payola'd albums in recent memory and that's just a fact. Miss Gomez is highly successful with a third of the effort.
