do we not already have a Cardi B thread?

porg and bess (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 2 January 2018 22:51 (three months ago) Permalink

Currently:

1. Ed Sheeran "Perfect" - competent British singer / songwriter with another hit
2. Post Malone "Rockstar" - like a boring version of Future that gets to be a pop star
3. Camila Cabello "Havana" - cordial
4. Lil Pump "Gucci Gang" - just a lil guy that prob has a big soundcloud following
5. G-Eazy "No Limit" - cardi B
6. Imagine Dragons "Thunder" - imagine dragons biting these guys in half and / or burning them with fireballs
7. Migos "Motorsport" - cardi B & Nicki Minaj
8. Sam Smith "Too Good at Goodbyes" - :|
9. Mariah Carey "All I Want For Christmas" - this rules
10. Halsey "Bad At Love" - this is okay!

good thread idea, was thinking it would be nice to follow the chart a bit more (even if most of it is shit)

my sister went to a shawn mendes concert last year and I had no idea who the guy was but apparently he has to chart topping albums...

I will admit that I never intentionally listen to top 40 radio (mostly hear it in shops, bars, taxis)

every time I turn on top 40 radio they're playing songs from like 2012

i like shawn mendes's song "mercy"

if this thread is going to be at all interesting we might have to broaden the discussion somewhat to songs that are a little farther down the chart, it can get pretty stagnant up there

dyl, Wednesday, 3 January 2018 23:13 (three months ago) Permalink

the idea was to ~mostly~ be about the Top Ten to keep it from being a general purpose Billboard / pop music discussion. that being said, it's totally cool if it broadens to stuff a little farther down, particularly for songs that might go top ten. then we could have something to, like, root for or whatever. or, if there is a turd in the punch bowl for which we need to brace ourselves

Does anyone like G-Eazy? For a guy with a couple of rap hits he seems surprisingly lacking in charisma, or really talent for anything besides looking cool in a leather jacket.

JRN, Thursday, 4 January 2018 01:11 (three months ago) Permalink

the first time i heard the g-eazy song i figured there was little chance of it becoming big even with the well-timed cardi b feature, naturally it's now on its way to being the biggest hit of his career lol

idk if anyone's ever kept track of how many white rappers have been successful at the same time.* but there's more where that came from! "let you down" by the white christian rapper nf (he somehow sounds like a crass combination of eminem and every other white rapper who's ever been successful since) is #17 and rising -- pop and pop-leaning stations are the source of the majority of its radio support. and speaking of em, his ed sheeran collab "river" takes a big nosedive this week, but will likely recover in the coming weeks (once again due to pop stations, who are already jumping on it).

as recently as 2016, the seemingly best bet for an artist like g-eazy to get exposure was to focus on pop radio, get bebe rexha to sing the hook, and guest on britney spears's lead. now that the sound pop radio favors is becoming less of a sure shot chart- and especially streaming-wise (big pop radio hits are now routinely missing or just barely scraping the hot 100's top 10), it's actually just as viable a strategy for him, even as a white artist, to try to carve out space at urban radio. (the pop side has so far barely touched "no limit" even though they played the shit out of "me myself & i".)

meanwhile, the only rap song to cross from the r&b/hip-hop airplay top 10 to the pop airplay top 10 in 2017 was post malone's. (the other two songs that did so were "wild thoughts" and "unforgettable" -- "that's what i like" crossed in the opposite direction.) i don't know if i've ever seen a situation like this in my lifetime, where music by black artists is popping so distinctly on the charts but is being almost entirely passed up by supposed top 40 stations.

what i find myself wondering in light of all this is whether we will see urban radio ceding more space to the increasing number of white artists who want to make on-trend music, leaving less room for black artists, especially emerging ones, at the only radio format that seems to be willing to play them.

(* despite the billboard charts columnists' propensity to dispense annoyingly trivial and often context-free chart records whenever possible, including female- and age-specific records, the publication seems to generally tiptoe around the issue of race whenever possible unless they're churning out a gossip-mill story about a celebrity's race-related viral tweet or something -- this despite much of the industry's promotional machinery still being implicitly or explicitly organized by the race of its recording artists. but it wasn't always so! in 04 or 05 there was mention of the fact that the entire top 10 one week was by black artists, and even back in 1992 the latin columnist at the time pointed out when jon secada became the first black artist to go #1 on the latin tracks chart.)

I like Havana too, but as with that Shawn Mendes song, it's with the video. We watch a lot of top 40 videos around here. That's probably why I ended up enjoying "Feels" also: the only Katy Perry moment of the year I couldn't get enough of.

i would like seeing "new rules" make the top 10 even briefly. not even a huge fan of the song but i feel like it ~deserves~ it whatever that means.

one of the only interesting things to me on the chart right now is whether "end game" becomes a proper big hit once the video comes out or if every single off the taylor album is gonna be kinda floppy except for the one that's like the worst song of her career

even that one is like one of the most frontloaded #1 hits in the history of the charts (w/ the exception of the early-mid-2000s american idol singles), almost definitely the most frontloaded since britney spears's "hold it against me".

i actually have a video all plotted out in my head for thinking out loud. (i have never seen the real video, don't even know if there is one) ed's a barback a little nightspot in the village. people are leaving, laughing, oh i forgot to mention this is all in black and white with a bluish tint (i'm probably getting this from a richard marx video). everybody's ignoring our man ed, who's picking up ashtrays and sweeping up. the owner throws ed the keys as he leaves with a tipsy date. ed looks around. the place is still a mess. aside from dim lights behind the bar, there's just a single spotlight, centered on the tiny stage in the corner. half the chairs are already up on the tables. the opening chords come in. who's playing them? it's non-diegetic, don't worry about it. or is it....? ed picks up an old acoustic guitar leaning against the stool. he sits down in the spotlight. he sings and plays the song. the camera gets more into it, swooping around, dolly shots, the works. the last chord rings out and ed leans the guitar back against the stool. he pauses, half a smile on his face. and picks up a dishrag. needs an ending but i think you get the idea

"Havana" climbs a spot and "Bad At Love" climbed four. "Bodak Yellow" is back in the charts and Ed Sheeran still sits at the top. not much has changed... At least "Let You Down" by NF didn't move from 18, and Dua Lipa "New Rules" is on the cusp at 11.

this week's chart reflects the data-tracking week straddling new year's day, which tends to be a pretty quiet time. if you peek below the top 10, you'll see a surprising number of the chart's older hits rising a bit or even a lot: "feel it still", "shape of you", "believer", "that's what i like", "attention" etc. my understanding is that this is largely because of the year-end countdown shows that many radio stations, esp top 40 ones, play around that time, which gives an airplay-fueled boost to whichever big radio hits from the year are still charting. new year's eve playlists i saw on spotify and such seem to have helped too. (itunes gift card redemptions post-christmas used to also make a big impact, but with fewer people buying singles on itunes these days i'm not sure it made much of a difference this year.)

next week things should shake up a bit with bruno mars's "finesse" remix (in at #35 this week) jumping toward the top + the debut of justin timberlake's latest. the latter has not launched as stratospherically as one might expect from jt (his trolls soundtrack song debuted at #1 on the back of massive download sales in 2016) but maybe it'll be able to hold on until he performs at the super bowl in a few weeks.

i will rep for "filthy"! not a patch on his more essential work but much better than the other singles he has put out from the album. it is eyeroll-inducing and dad-ish but its awkwardness works somehow for me lol. like, i want to groan at him for starting the song with 'haters gonna say it's fake!' the way i do at every #brand trying to use hip slang that twitter denizens were using ages ago, but it is pretty amusing in the context of all the handwringing about a 'country album' being forthcoming that was going on before we had even heard anything.

hoooyaaargh it's me satan (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 7 February 2018 03:49 (two months ago) Permalink

i'll also sorta rep for "filthy." the hook feels like something i might hear on an electro r&b song as well as last train to paris, aka it's extremely fauntleroy. helps me overlook the brief sections of the song that are like my least favorite timbaland modes overlapping (shitty-sounding polygonal horns a la "4 minutes," his sense of what arena rock is a la the chris cornell record)

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Wednesday, 7 February 2018 14:31 (two months ago) Permalink

i find the horns super distracting! the first time hearing the song, *horns -> "haters gonna say it's fake..."* had me cringing, but now it's okay I can deal with a little noise

rap is dad (it's a boy!), Wednesday, 7 February 2018 15:18 (two months ago) Permalink

three weeks pass...

and "filthy" is now off the hot 100 entirely after 6 weeks on the chart. in related news, taylor swift's "end game" nosedives 26 rungs to #91 -- it was at its #18 peak just 5 weeks ago, but has spent the last few weeks declining at an alarming rate in airplay, which was its only strong charting metric. barring the unexpected, next week there will be no reputation songs left on the chart. (timberlake still has his chris stapleton collab "say something", which is shaping up to be a solid pop/adult radio hit.)

one of the less musically interesting but more surprising top 10 entries in recent weeks is bebe rexha's "meant to be" featuring florida georgia line. it's a pretty straightforward tune with some lightweight hi-hats and harmonies sprinkled here-n-there -- hardly the sort of thing you'd expect to be pulling heavy streams. but it actually is streaming, and especially selling, surprisingly well, and has managed to coast nearly effortlessly into the top tier off of that and some gradually building airplay not only at pop and adult but also country radio. (the way it's been parked at #1 on billboard's country songs chart ever since billboard suddenly decided it counted as country is surely eliciting some groans.)

given good prospects for timberlake/stapleton, rexha/fgl and now zedd/maren morris (already at #13 just 4 weeks in), i'm tempted to surmise that these bizarre-on-paper-but-predictable-in-sound collabos (the zedd single is basically a carbon copy of previous hit "stay") will be more the norm in the near future as pop adjusts to find its new down-the-middle style.

drake's massive smash, which will probably be the hot 100's #1 for a while longer, will probably make a solid cross to pop radio, but otherwise 'urban' tracks are still struggling to find themselves accepted as 'pop' even as they perform so well on the big chart. kendrick's "love.", arguably the pop-friendliest cut he's ever made, is sputtering around in the lower end of the pop radio top 20 with khalid's "young dumb & broke", which has been making its slow climb for ages. (top 40 playlists are so tight these days that songs below the top 10 at the format are often not even being played during daytime hours by most stations.)

the exceptions to pop's resistance to rap, of course, are with the pallid rappers mentioned earlier in the thread. nf's "let you down" is probably going to break the hot 100's top 10 soon enough (#12 now) and is about to rise to #1 on pop radio. g-eazy's halsey duet "him & uy" is also top 10 at pop radio (#14 hot 100) and don't look now, but this bazzi fellow is surely next. (i imagine some marketing agency received a fat check for this cringey excuse for a 'meme' going 'viral'.)

next week should see a splashy debut from post malone near the top of the chart.

idk if it's more "the new down-the-middle style" per se so much as Top 40 radio noticing country radio is getting a lot of airplay, wanting that audience, but being reluctant to play actual country hits. (that, and being so reluctant to play hip-hop and R&B that they're grasping at anything else)

Also, I'm relatively certain "Freaky Friday" by Lil Dicky (feat. Chris Brown) is the worst song I've heard in a while.

I can't believe "featuring Chris Brown" is still happening.

i will have officially lost all hope for pop radio if it picks up on the lil dicky song after having passed on heaps of more deserving rap songs

(i have already stopped actively choosing to tune into pop radio but you know what i mean)

the iheart urban chr station here 'premiered' that lil dicky abomination so i'm guessing there's a substantial push behind it

the station in my city (not iheart-owned) occasionally plays a succession of song clips w/ one of the dj-bot voices announcing the artist and title over each clip. they announce the lil dicky song simply as "chris brown - freaky friday" which makes me lol every time

(they also mispronounce xxxtentacion as 'extension')
