Looks like Your Power is another dud for Miss Billie after the duds My Future and Therefore I Am.

 

WW:

My Future - 3,712,032 (-28%)
Therefore I Am - 5,106,506 (-12%)

Your Power - 4,642,820 (-26%)

 

Is the gud sis having a sophomore slump? :dancehall:

'Your Power' is a gorgeous track but I think it was an odd choice for a lead(?) single especially considering the hype that was built up around it. The album will probs still do really well tho

It looks like bad guy (with Justin Bieber) was just a one time fluke to me

You guys are going to look like clowns when she releases a huge hit single the day the album releases. Just like she did for her previous album. Her last album had 3-4 singles before Bad Guy was released

It's not that bad. It just means people were expecting a bop from Billie, not a serious song.

 

Also cool, now people can stop faux stanning her becuz she's successful

Her album organically smashing & sweeping the Grammys really struck a nerve on ATRL  :alexz3:

 

OBH will be on full meltdown mode when BE2 drops :celestial4:perched

her music post ROTY everything I wanted is boring. She needs new ideas and life experiences.

How is that not sticking?

 

OT : Your Power just isn't the kind of song that can pull huge numbers

This.  :rip: 

 

OT: Billie was never a singles artist, so not every one of her singles needs to end up being a hit. The song isn't very commercial either and considering this + the lyrical content, it's doing well. People are buying the album anyway, the bad guy chanteuse is far from over. Y'all will look like clowns when HTE ends up being a massive smash. :rip:

Arts not the charts :clap3:

Tbf most of her droplet era singles have been somewhat successful, I think it was gonna be hard to top her debut album in terms of success anyway, it was huge.

not everyone has a payola machine behind her and release generic dance tracks for the masses

It's not really a song you'd keep on replay. But Therefore I Am is a pretty big hit I think.

when the party is over and bury a friend were huge hits despite low peaks though. The songs in the OP were the opposite: high peaks but weak "hits" without longevity.

As someone who loved her last album I haven't gone back to Your Power either. They will push a catchier song with the album hopefully

I really like the song but I feel like she should have waited at least a one good year. She's gonna slay regardless.
