There’s no doubt about it…Taylor Swift‘s sales are astronomical.
Unfortunately, the last week has seen her fans clash with Beyonce loyalists and, to some extent, taunt Chris Brown supporters after his latest LP ‘Heartbreak on a Full Moon’ moved a modest 5,000 units in pure sales in the last chart week.
Why in the bloody hell is there a Beyoncé and Taylor Swift war happening on Twitter?

My friend @arttavana is being personally attacked because of a tweet he wrote that is attached here. Just because you don’t like Taylor Swift or super love Beyonce doesn’t make it ok to threaten someone’s life. He has had his life THREATENED along with his mom today bc of a tweet pic.twitter.com/trVTm2KUFP

So I’m not saying Taylor Swift is terrible but people be trying to put her on the same level as Beyonce and it’s unacceptable, she’ll never be on beys level #SORRYNOTSORRY

Calling on White women, a somewhat unreliable group, to help POC boycott Taylor swift’s new album. She doesn’t make good music and it’s time we all say it. Bops? Yes. Quality, Beyoncé level music? Your fave could never.

But why is Reputation being compared to one of the all-time greatest albums that is Lemonade? Why is Taylor Swift ever even mentioned in the same sentence as Beyonce? Why are people so dumb?

“This generation”but Gisele’s last #1 was last decade? and Gisele is getting outsold by other artists. Stop with the excuses for her mediocre album sales
— Miguel Medina (@Miguel0510283) November 26, 2017
I respect all artists but I’ve to say, I’ve never seen a more overrated artist than Beyonce in my life. I mean her vocals are mediocre, she neither writes nor composes her music, she dances OK (what does she do other than hip shaking) and she looks average. Queen of what exactly?

He sold less than 100k pure. So he needs at least 10k streams x song cuz he released +40 songs. In other words, the album flopped. Steaming revenues are a mess, and albums with less than 100k pure sales for a recognised artist are considered a flop . Don’t @ me again pic.twitter.com/HXOZvHKW2m

Didnt they just release their own new album n flop hard? I mean both of them…

What a Fucking lie, #GrassAintGreener went out in May of 2016!
And i don’t know why you use that to bash him, because DRAKE DID THE SAME DAMN THING WITH “VIEWS” USING HIS SALES FROM THE HOTLINE BLING. So what’s the deal? If Drake can do it, Chri can do it too.
