It's just ridiculous. Lil Wayne, Drake and Taylor swift all have more top 40 hits than the Beatles or Madonna??? 

They've not even got five memorable songs between them!

Meh, doesn't really matter, they are all from eras where song features and streaming album tracks gain you chart entries. Madonna, The Beatles, Elvis etc all earned their hits.

I went into my local supermarket yesterday where they were selling 3 cd's for £20 - Albums from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and P!nk were selling like crazy, but hers didn't look like it had been touched at all. I even went into HMV and again - loads of copies on the shelves. Poor toilet shite. That's what you get for being cunty to Katy. :lmao:

Im hearing that the greedy bitch increased the ticket prices after the presale. Looks like she is charging Madonna prices. She obviously wants to break Madonna's touring grosses/records.

Also can see people complaining about the secrecy in Australia about her seating plan. Live nation have put up the layout plan but have not shown each price section. Everyone on facebook is hounding them to release the sections. I have a feeling that 80% of the seats will the top price tier. Hence the secrecy then if they dont sell out they can lower prices and no one can tell that they have.

I hope it backfires and she can't sell out or has to reduce prices tomove tickets. Now that would be great to see that for trying to rip of her young fans. 

It took madonna over 20 years in business to charge high prices & she proved tour after tour that she was worth the prices.

I am yet to see anything (music or performance) swift has done to show that she is worth these prices! 

I can't wait for her and Sheeran and all the other white bland vanilla "artists" that are currently popular peak and fade away. We need a new music revolution.

nicely said. she's a spoiled brat. they want all the bragging rights and awards without doing the work. same with goober.

Taylor isn't known for being a performer. she's just bland on stage. she wants to break records but she's a shit performer.

Hot 100 Chart Moves: Taylor Swift Tallies 55th Top 40 Hit With 'End Game'

12/15/2017 by Gary Trust

"End Game," Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran and Future

02-taylor-swift-ed-sheeran-jingle-ball-l

The song vaults 83-39 in its third week on the Hot 100 (after debuting at No. 86 two weeks ago), following parent album Reputation's wide release to streaming services Dec. 1. Previously, only the set's four pre-release tracks were available for streaming. Those four songs all hit the Hot 100's top 40: "Look What You Made Me Do" (three weeks at No. 1); "…Ready for It?" (No. 4); "Gorgeous" (No. 13); and "Call It What You Want" (No. 27).

"End Game," now Reputation's fifth top 40 hit, drew 7.6 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. It also jumps 15-10 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 40 percent to 24,000 downloads sold, and 45-38 on Radio Songs (31 million audience impressions, up 26 percent).

Swift tallies her 55th top 40 Hot 100 hit, the fifth-best total in the chart's history. Elvis Presley leads with 80 top 40 titles, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, launch (more than two years after he began appearing on various Billboard charts).

Artists With the Most Top 40 Hot 100 Hits
80, Elvis Presley
71, Lil Wayne
67, Drake
57, Elton John
55, Taylor Swift
51, Glee Cast
50, The Beatles
49, Madonna
49, Rihanna
47, JAY-Z

:lmao:

Another like Beyonce.  55 singles???????????  Public can only name like six!!!! 

LIL WAYNE!  :rotfl:

DRAKE!!!!  :lol:

Not that Katy is selling much precisely :lol:

I guess that's what you get from behaving like a ten year old to appeal to little girls. Both Katy and Taylor behaved like half retards for too long.

These numbers are just not comparable. Album tracks and non-singles were not eligible for the Hot 100 like there are now. Into the Groove, Beautiful Stranger, American Pie are just the tip of the iceberg. Same situation for Elvis and the Beatles. Billboard should always mention this fact or just stop with these lists.

Rock will make a comeback.

When is the last time rock was "big"? I think the shift from EDM to urban/hip-hop has already happened. And it's dire. The same crap we heard 15 years ago on repeat. But where has rock been? I think it would have happened if it was going to.

At least Katy actually put out a solid album that showed some actual effort and growth.

Payola makes the world go around. Madonna, Rihanna, Elvis, Beatles and Elton are the only ones with plenty of Top 40 Hits that were actual hits with longevity

The whole "it's not that tickets are more expensive this time around, we're just using the secondary market prices directly and if fans don't like the prices they can either get a ticket for a cheaper area of the map or not go to the concert" is a big fuck you to the fans.
