Some Artists’ First Singles May Be In Trouble

Contributed anonymously:

With the current chart positions of some songs, is it fair to blame the artists’ choice in selection, or just the ever changing taste of fickle music listeners? ’ ‘Me Against the Music’ seems about right, considering her public image may be upstaging her music career. Her duet with Madonna, also the first single from her new album, gained momentum quickly but has lost its steam on Billboard’s Hot 100, dropping from 38 to 44 this week. And Pink is in ‘Trouble’ as well, since her first single has yet to crack the top 50. Her record company has even rushed a second single to radio, ‘God is a DJ’, where it is going for adds. Did her label sense a disaster in the mix, due to the bland rock flavor of ‘Trouble?’ Maybe no one is feeling either of these lackluster songs, or are we just waiting for a more R&B Pink and more bubblegum Britney, which is what made them household names in the first place. I expect Britney to pull a Christina, and hurry her Justin-ode ‘Everytime’ to radio to reclaim her post on the top of the charts, like when ‘Dirrty’ failed to generate buzz last year and Aguilera quickly came out with ‘Beautiful.’ Whether Britney’s latest album sells, it’s hard to say if it’s because her music isn’t as popular, but it’s for sure that hip-hop and R&B has raided pop-radio. People seem to really be into the Beyonce look, which is big hair and catchy R&B hooks, as her ‘Crazy in Love’ stood firm at #1 on the Hot 100 for 11 weeks and ‘Baby Boy’ is still going strong after 8 weeks. Maybe that’s why Christina’s hair has gotten noticeably darker and bigger.

    Britney and Pink are both in trouble. Christina isn’t copying Beyonce. I don’t see any similarities in looks at all. Britney is definitely pulling a Christina. Since Christina was so successful last year and this year.

    Yeah, its weird how Pink, Britney, Justin, and Christina have had such problem with their first singles. I don’t think Britney will release Everytime. I’m thinking it’ll be Boom Boom, and that will be a huge hit. Its the type of music that’s in right now, and its way catchier than MATM.

WHY THE HELL DOES POPDIRT LET THIS CRAP THROUGH??? I THINK most CHRISTINA and BRITNEY fans, MARIAH Fans, etc can all agree that this crap is annoying, useless, and embarrassing.

    Some people are clueless. It’s NOT just FIRST singles that are struggling, but singles, period. The reason many singles aren’t doing well is because many labels aren’t even releasing singles for sale any longer. Radio airplay has become a bigger indicator of how successful a single is considered to be. (Example – Beyonce knocked Clay’s TITN out of the #1 position based mainly on radio airplay while Clay’s position was secured based ONLY on sales.) Plus people have to take into account that many (if not MOST ) fans are choosing to DOWNLOAD these songs instead of buying them. Downloading is hurting singles sales just as it has album sales.

    LMAO Britney just said on Primetime Thursday that she would love to have a voice like Christina’s, what a loser. Now I know why she’s jealous of Christina. HA! Britney fans comments please… HA!

    How was it not a worldwide hit? The two biggest markets are the U.S and the U.K…….it hit number one in the U.K, and many other countries including Australia, where I’m at. Just because it tanked in the U.S doesn’t mean it wasn’t a worldwide hit.
