Which one is it for you?

It’s Dua Lipa for me. I was shocked to see those horrendous first week US sales and her sales in general. You would think by the amount of milking and shoving this albanian human trafficking victim up our asses she would have the best sales for a human ever.

sorry boo, but your sales don’t match your hype. Next.

1)All the Members of one direction except for Harry. They get mad clout on twitter, hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets on twitter and a crazy fanbase. But their singles and albums flop.



2) Chloe xHalle: I actually love this Gurls but their last album didn't perform so well commercially. But the good thing is that their star continues to rise and I'm confident that their future projects would perform better. Plus they got Grammy nom for the album so a they gained something



3) City Gurls: need I say more, their music doesnt make much noise but their other "antics" do.



4) Normani: a gorgeous beautiful young lady who is yet to release her debut album almost 3years since going solo. However every once in a while she posts pics on twitter and people swoon over her but that's it. Had lots of hype after motivation dropped(but motivation didn't Live up to its hype and only performed moderately) but seems she hasn't found the motivation to release more songs. At this point just a pretty face with a almost empty discography. Gets lots of hype thou

Beyoncé hasn’t updated her certifications in 10+ years.

But each of her studio albums have went #1 (she was the first to set this record and only recently has been tied) and have been reported to have good/great sales.


She by no means doesn’t match her hype.

She’s RIAA certified best selling female artist of the 2000’s. And both her solo albums that dropped in 2010’s set and broke records. She’s pretty impressive with streaming too, with a decade old song beating out current releases and being the only black woman with multiple albums to cross 2 billion. So although she’s not updated it’s ridiculous to think she wouldn’t have the numbers.

Not referring to Janet, but there are many artists who are massively influential but only achieved modest record sales in their lifetimes.

Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson etc were not diamond selling artists but they pioneered the entire genre of rock music and are regarded as legends.

All of the albums The Velvet Underground and the Ramones released flopped on the charts whilst they were active and barely charted, but they are still iconic and deemed as legends in the rock scene.

Both of the bands I mentioned are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but never even had a top 100 hit on Billboard.

Ariana Grande.

Her combined streaming album sales only add up to 29 million with six albums out while being one of the most dominant popstars of the 2010s. Her single sales are also lackluster. Even with streaming imo.

Edited due to inaccuracy.

Ariana Grande.

Her combined streaming album sales only add up to 2 or 3 million at their highest... yet she was one of the biggest artists of the previous decade. Her single sales are also lackluster. Even with streaming imo.
Is that it??? Wow.

Bloody hell these optical illusions that artists pull really do make it seem they are bigger sellers than they actually are...

To be fair Dua Lipa is still of new. She's just doing well for an artist who debuted 3 years ago.

I'll say Beyoncé. The way people talk about her and her stans are so loud, you'd think that she was the biggest hitmaker of this century and the best selling artist of this century but she's not even in those list, let alone in the all of times one. Her stans are so performative. They aren't even buying nor streaming her records.

U mean physical album sales? I believe she is leading the pack with album streams but that’s because she debuted in the streaming era.

Dua is doing well in Europe tho. She’s not an American artist, but overall she’s had a very successful era.

I watched the video awhile ago and it's two years old now.

Currently, she's done 29 million in album sales combined with streaming, it was last updated two months ago.
