Yeah you have no arguments so turn to talking nonsense and I said less likely can you learn to read or stop replying to me.
Your comparing fandom and general public.. charts are about general public and which song of that week is the most popular touring is not even a argument to bring into this discussion.
Its the streaming era you should wake up.
I never said that I said thats all it takes do you people have trouble reading or something?
At least try to respond with a argument or just dont bother im wasting my time I guess.
And concerts are a redundant measure of popularity in the streaming era? Is that what you are trying to say? Streams are gamed as easily as website sales, however one can be seen overtly while the other is done more nefariously and covertly through features like Discovery Mode where songs get added to playlists as recs without even the knowledge or consent of the user. But looks like you have problems with only website sales and not the other more insidious practice. Interesting how you are ignoring features like Discovery Mode and arbitrary non-transparent filtering rules. I wonder why that is.....hmmm.
The only thing that cannot be gamed is soldout concerts and guess what, BTS are beating pretty much all your manufactured "gp" darlings there.
