AIWFCIY possibly already top 10 this week (91,538) by jaker20 from US
(Friday 6 December 2019; 15:23)
We will find out today or tomorrow. If that is true, we should start heavy streaming this very week. Wouldn't it be sweet if she gets a no.1 this decade, and then in the first week of the next decade?

Re: December 26th AIWFCIY lamb streaming party (91,535) (91,537) by jaker20 from US

December 20-26. That's the key. But it's moving so fast right now it could get higher sooner. Let us not worry who will or will not surprise release. We have the streaming support of the pubic. Honestly, the new Taylor song sounds so awful. It sounds like a ripoff of so many other Christmas songs.

Re: AIWFCIY jumps 31 to 18 on Billboard (91,509) (91,512) by jaker20 from US
(Tuesday 3 December 2019; 21:01)
At billboard.com, you can change the dates tracking date and compare. It is doing better this year but it's not a direct comparison because the days within tracking week is different. For example, last year, its at no. 29 for week ending December 1, 2018. This year, its at no. 31 for week ending November 30, 2019, and no.18 for week ending December 7.

She's really coming. She's also no.6 on Spotify. Get your coins ready. Remember lambs, December 20th is the date to get those cds, vinyls and power streaming.

Its coming in very hard on streaming this year. And we're still in November. I really hope this is the year.

Robert-Anthony, streaming. It was streaming that powered it to no.3 last year. More people streamed last year than the previous year, and there's more this year. Requesting to radio and downloads are good, but if you want to help out that has most impact, streaming is the key.

So I guess we need to stream from December 13 to 19, to give it momentum. And then power stream on December 20 and onwards.

I don't know if there's a maximum number to stream per day per user. I do know stans of other artists say they leave the song on repeat and loop. It might not add into the count as there's no clear rule, but it keeps the song on other people's "hot songs", or "popular this week" or "suggested songs", depending on which app you are using. So the goal is to get it recommended on there users' playlists.

Yes buying the song now doesn't really help much. You should buy it on the peak week. I just don't know when is the peak week but it's definitely around the 20th of December or just before that. Tracking week is so confusing to me. The streaming, radio and downloads tracking seem to be on different range of days. Does anyone know who can explain this for our benefit?

It is moving too fast. This is the first time it's entered top 40 before Thanksgiving. Prepare your streaming devices on December. Maybe we should schedule a streaming party? Does anyone know the peak Christmas tracking week this year?

Re: My predictions for 30 years in 2020 (91,379) (91,382) by jaker20 from US
(Monday 18 November 2019; 00:07)
I'd like a video for There's Got To Be A Way with the original version, because the video they made was for the remix, which is just an awful super cheap remix. It is one of Mariah's best vocals and the remix was horrific, completely destroyed the song.

I would be so happy if MC gets a nom. It is undoubtedly one of her best albums. Imagine gettting a Grammy now, 29 years after your already iconic career. It will fire her up to serve us more quality albums.

Mariah on being the top female solo artist of all (91,358) by jaker20 from US
(Friday 15 November 2019; 18:32)
On the overall artists list, she is no.4, behind The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John. If AIWFCIY goes to no.1, I am pretty sure she will go to no.2 at the very least. At least. Because, if I'm not mistaken, none of those artists above her have that huge gap between first and last no.1, 29 years in Mimi's case, along with her high peaks. Not saying though that Mariah will not have another hit, in fact, AIWFCIY getting that record could rekindle public awareness as well as her creative juices. So next decade, beating The Beatles will then be in play. What a great time to be a lamb. .

I want her to also release the acapella performances of AIWFCIY, like the original studio performances, some of the live performances, and the Fallon acapella with The Roots.

Also of course Camp Mariah. It's interesting that Christmas was release at the same year. It is no coincidence that both will become her legacy. When she gives she receives tenfold.

It does feeL like Mariah is building momentum for Christmas anniversary. She did the same last year with the masterpiece album that is Caution, and the song peaked at number 3. I rather Mariah not perform the song, because when she does it loses its steam. It's weird I know, but that's how it went. Just let the song do its thing. Mariah is a streaming monster, the size and beauty of her catalog is just unreal. Once more lambs jump into streaming maybe that will push it. She looks great, she looks happy, and Nas breaking her record actually put her name back into the spotlight. Can you imagine 14 year olds who probably don't know her songs going "Nas broke Mariah's record", they naturally go and check her discography. I hope the mix-ish theme is a bop, that would be the well-timed perfect storm.

Old Town Road is a great song (90,486) by jaker20 from US
(Wednesday 31 July 2019; 00:55)
On 20 April 2019, I posted on MCArchives: "I would like Mariah to collab with a country artist. Old Town Road is one of the hottest tracks I've heard in awhile, and hopefully Mariah can branch out to that genre too."

That was 3 months ago. Search it, page 50 (or 51 now probably). That was before the song completely blew up. I knew I heard something, because you know, I got a good ear for a hit.

The truth is, huge hits sometimes happen by accident. You don't know what will be a hit. Artists have to experiment and find it somewhere deep inside them. Mariah herself said it sometimes you can't tell if a song will be huge. She actually thought WBT will not be a huge hit, and that It's Like That will be a bigger hit. Well, everything happens for a reason.

He can break the record. With the way it's going, it will probably stop at 18 or 19 weeks. In the streaming era, it doesn't really mean anything anymore anyway.

"Oh wow 18 weeks at number cause people pay $10 a month to stream a million different songs." It is a useless record now lol.

Glitter being number 1 at iTunes is great, it's good for the album's visibility and bragging rights. But iTunes is irrelevant. It becoming Apple chart is their way of phasing it out so they can fully push their streaming service. Sorry but just saying the truth.

That's all good but iTunes is literally irrelevant. No.900 is probably less than 100 downloads or something. iTunes will be discontinued soon.

Grammy Album of the Year (90,314) by jaker20 from US

Is Caution in the conversation for Album of the Year? I think she should be. Sometimes the Grammys snubs hot artists of the moment, and kinder to legends.

Sadly OTR is guaranteed to take the record. It's already guaranteed to spend 14 to 15 weeks at number one at this point, and unless something blows up next week, then its over. And even then, OTR's lead is too big right now to be taken down and other songs aren't gaining enough points.

This new chart where streaming dominates the formula is making it normal for songs to spend 12 to 15 weeks at number one. Maybe something will show up next week, but I doubt it.
