    Welcome to the 1 billion streams club Sam, u join bad bìtches like Camila cabello (1.3 billion streams for havana) and sia (1 billion streams for cheap thrills).
    Not everybody has this to their credit.

    Normani has dancing with the stars tho, she placed 3rd. Lol

    He shouldn’t have won song of the year, that award belonged to sia Chandelier

      Sam Smith helped Flopmani to reach #7 in Hot 100
      Without Sam, she will be #33 like what she did in Floptivation

      Also, Love Lies peaked at #9 coz Khalid helped Flopmani to reached top 10

      It is safe to say that people are not really interested in her but to her duet partner?????

      Weaves peaked at —— nevermind it actually haven’t charted at all

      Floptivation peaked at 33

      Normani is the La Tavia of the Fifth Harmony

      Tinashe beat Flopmani coz tinashe peaked at #24 on “2 On”

    Just a day before you reported that Sam announced their pronouns are they/them, yet in this article you constantly refer to them as he and him. Disrespectful.

    Why are THEY still relevant? Their ass should have a seat.
