Are Drake & Taylor Swift's longevity impressive?


Recommended Posts

Both Drake and Taylor Swift released their first music in 2006, over 15 years ago...

 

Fast-forward to 2021 and with over a decade of massive success already under their belt (Drake was AOTD and Taylor female AOTD), they were not only the best-selling and most streamed artists of the first half of 2021 in the US...

... but they were also still the two best-selling solo artists globally of 2020.

Do you think it is impressive that after 15 whole years, both are basically still on top of their commercial game, with music that still resonates so well with consumers and enables them to keep being so high on these "biggest artists of the year" lists year after year?

Taylor’s is.

Drake’s not so much. His dominance started in 2015. Taylor smashed in 2008 and never stopped since then.

Absolutely :clap3: They are like the MJ and Madonna of their generation*
 

**I’m not saying either career is comparable to one or the other. I’m literally just saying they are going to be THE two most remembered artists of the this time frame.

Yes

 

Especially for someone like Taylor that doesnt benefit from the aura of being "cool" to listen too. It is shocking that she lasted this long.

Taylor Swift dropped 3 albums + a re-recording since Drake's last studio album, so they're not really in the same boat. :beatfreak:

To the size and staying power they’ve been able to have since they’ve debuted is really impressive. It speaks to their abilities as hitmakers.

But Taylor's longevity is as impressive as Mariah's. Mariah got 8 10M+ seller in her career(7 in a row). 

Taylor's first 8 will reach that milestone and she is yet to slow down right now. 

 

Only female i can name with better longevity is Madonna. :celestial5:

Drake also has like 10 albums so what does that have something to do with anything? :beatfreak:

Don't forget million singles. 5 which got released this year too.

 

But some bases have forgotten how it feels when their faves releases so I can't blame them and they have to hide at other artists to drag Taylor because their faves' lack recent musical accomplishments.

 

Drake and Taylor still top 2 on most streamed artists. Not many can relate.

And Drake has released 15 singles in a span of time that Taylor has released 6. Neither cancels out the other.

Yes and No?

they both peaked right when digitals were going to go away and streaming was starting to take over

they only saw 1 change of a music market so they weren't affected as much as P!nk or Eminem for example, who truly have a great longevity

Still, they have great longevity compared to their peers so they deserve their praise..(but they wont be praised as much as others who saw like 3 market market changes :deadbanana2:)
