Let's define "hit" as charting in the the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 6 February 2017 21:25 (five months ago) Permalink

Or maybe Top 20?

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 6 February 2017 21:26 (five months ago) Permalink

i think it will be a minor hit

lag∞n, Monday, 6 February 2017 21:29 (five months ago) Permalink

We should let deej define "hit" because his ridiculous idea of what is a "hit" might be like his definition of "dated"

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 6 February 2017 21:32 (five months ago) Permalink

Top 10 in the US Spotify Chart right now, 813,919 plays per day--probably gonna move up in the Hot 100 this week from #37 last week.

deej will also probably tell you spotify means nothing because kids in chicago only listen to songs on musical.ly now or something

i will take 'hit' if we define 'hit' as charting in the top 10 of the billboard hot 100

wld probably take 'hit' under most definitions of 'hit song'

might take the under on peak hot 100 chart position at 4.5 def confident on the over at like 11.5

I'd call that a hit but if deej says it isn't a hit then I guess there's that.

this will chart high due to streaming numbers, in a post-streams to charts world it is already a hit. i doubt it has any real longevity personally, shit is riding the waves from bad & boujee and a novelty video

feel like if u put migos in the trap bucket theyre def more fun than their contemporaries who tend more towards the moody/serious/arty axis, but if u compare them to the mumble rappers theyre kinda the standard level of fun, both those classifications are kinda whatever imo but maybe interesting in this context

david is right that its chart number may be artificially inflated, if it's off the chart in three weeks it wasn't actually a hit so much as the next song to come out after "bad and boujee"

i mean timmy turner was a hit in chart position but i dont think you can call it a hit in any real way

my point is that chart peak is a suspect measurement. what kind of attempted own was that?

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 05:24 (five months ago) Permalink

Bad and Boujee was a hit because of streaming. And then it was a hit in other formats - because of streaming. Same thing happened with Juju and most other rap hits that no one thought were real hits.

there's a long phenomenon of songs having short bursts of chart relevancy at the very beginning of their life cycles going back to itunes sales getting incorporated into chart data

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 7 February 2017 06:27 (five months ago) Permalink

every song from starboy placed in the hot 100 its first week but the weeknd has 2 hits off that album so far

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 7 February 2017 06:29 (five months ago) Permalink

But now that seems to be changing. The songs that reach top 10 via streaming hang around longer these days because other formats start picking them up from there. That's what happened to Black Beatles, for instance. It's a new set of rules.

i wasn't trying to "own" anyone, i just think it sounds funny to say a song's not a hit except in the way we track hits, but y'all know how that stuff works better than me

sometimes differentiating between a one month and six month hit matters a lot anthropologically but less so with 't-shirt' bc it is a super rad banger duh

whichever prevailing current u may opine it is most aided by (4real zeitgeist wave, industry ersatz hypebestiality, meme magic, or ppl's personal bubbles where they care about neither) (or... all of them at once *gasp*) it is v disingenuous rhetoric to imply that it only has marginal/negligible appeal beyond that. foh with the timmy turner

r|t|c, Tuesday, 7 February 2017 07:39 (five months ago) Permalink

Timmy Turner reached #34 on the Hot 100, which makes it a minor hit but no t-shirt.

Suddenly going top 40 is a "minor hit" ? You guys have to make up your mind here about whether you're going to be strict charts constructionists or not around something other than the migos hypebeast cycle

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 08:30 (five months ago) Permalink

If you're talking Timmy Turner, dumbass, then yes. Since it was his follow up to a Hot 100 #1 hit and was massively hyped, I'd consider it a minor hit at 34.

I was replying to J0rdan's "there's a long phenomenon of songs having short bursts of chart relevancy at the very beginning of their life cycles going back to itunes sales getting incorporated into chart data" - the point being that such long phenomenas are changing so that the past might not be the best way of assessing what will happen to a song like T-Shirt. Also, the weeknd is a strange point of comparison since his chart success largely derives from him catering to the old business model of letting the label take care of the marketing, writing songs for radio etc etc. He's not playing the Migos game.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 08:53 (five months ago) Permalink

no, what's changing is that songs that should have been bigger are getting more attention, but it doesn't change songs artificially launched into the top cf 'timmy turner' or 't-shirt'...per rtc tho yes t shirt is better than timmy turner

if t-shirt had come pre- bad & boujee, it would not be a hit

'say sum' is more of a hit than 't shirt' it just had the bad fortune to come before the colossus that is 'bad & boujee'

also you're kidding yourself if you think migos aren't 'writing songs for radio'

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 09:43 (five months ago) Permalink

Well good luck with your alternative facts, deej. Every song comes out after another song. And Migos are writing the same type of songs that they always did about the same subject matter. That they do it better than on their last album and have developed their pop sensibilities quite a bit does not make Culture comparable to Starboy, sorry. Radio plays Bad & Boujee because it is already a hit but B&B was not written for radio and radio didn't make it a hit in the first place.

What's "artificial" about the streaming charts though? Those are the songs listeners actively seek out, unless you want to make an argument about playlists like Rap Caviar "skewing" the stats.
As mentioned above, today T-Shirt is at number 7 on the US spotify chart: https://spotifycharts.com/regional/us/daily/latest How does that not reflect its actual popularity?

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 09:49 (five months ago) Permalink

They should have put cocoon on the album though.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 09:54 (five months ago) Permalink

agree its obv not another breakthru full spectrum cultural moment like 'b&b' but no one was rly claiming that either

"songs artificially launched into the top" there is a fine diff between zeitgeist and hypebeast and u know this... both distortive but only one is artificial

r|t|c, Tuesday, 7 February 2017 10:10 (five months ago) Permalink

i might add by the by that it actually sounds awesome on the radio but i suppose the relevance of that depends on what radio is being discussed

r|t|c, Tuesday, 7 February 2017 10:13 (five months ago) Permalink

wait why does streaming numbers not count into what is a hit?

isn't that the dominant form of music listening now?

t shirt has been the recipient of great timing w/r/t the pop charts & streaming, & the Migos career turnaround

now that things have settled back down, it's dropped beneath non-single album track. i think that says something
