Megan Thee Stallion & Normani’s ‘Diamonds’ Misses Hot 100 Entirely With Debut

Published: Wednesday 22nd Jan 2020 by Rashad

Will the all-female ‘Birds of Prey’ soundtrack fall prey to the same lack of interest the girl-powered 2019 ‘Charlie’s Angels’ soundtrack faced?

Initial response to its lead single, ‘Diamonds’ (performed by Megan Thee Stallion, Normani), suggests the answer is ‘yes.’

Look inside to see what we mean:


As we first reported here, Meg sent fans into a frenzy a month ago when it was revealed she would be teaming with the former Fifth Harmony hitmaker for the ‘Birds of Prey’ official soundtrack.  Later revealed to be the project’s first single, the Bell and MD$– produced tune saw its official premiere accompanied by the release of its funhouse-themed music video on January 10.

Powered by its mallet-wielding starlets, the arrival of the ‘Diamonds’ video ignited Twitter’s trending topic list and digital sales tallies.  However, that amplification was short-lived.  Just days later, the song plummeted out of the upper rankings of real-time sales and streaming charts – a feat that suggested a sluggish start for a tune so highly anticipated.

Peruse of the most updated Hot 100 chart sees ‘Diamonds’ absent as it premiered at #16 on the Bubbling Under Charts.

The nonperformance echoes the commercial response to ‘Don’t Call Me Angel’ – the first single from the soundtrack of the 2019 reboot of ‘Charlie’s Angels.’  Powered by Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey – all respected hitmakers by their lonesome – their combined effort, albeit greeted by ample buzz, did not see that excitement mirrored commercially (as we reported here).

Either way, after checking out ‘Prey’s star-studded soundtrack tracklist by clicking here, tell us: what will it take to generate interest in the movie’s companion album?

      • only facts January 22, 2020

        You realize all of Camilas songs from NOmance have yet to outpeak Motivation, right?

      • Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

        Seniorita outcharted all of normani’s discography

        Here comes the senorita is not her song
        😩😩😩😩

      • only facts January 22, 2020

        Okay? You and Camila and Epic records continue to cling to senorita and Havana. Why can’t she get a hit without a feature? Aww. Boohoo. She is a racist and you’re the clown that is a person of color supporting her.

      • Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

        Never be the same outpeaked normani entire discography

        Gurl this is a new year, we’ve had this conversation before.
        😩😩😩😩😩

        Liar has more streams than motivation

        Liar- 217 million streams
        Motivation-147 million streams

        Shameless has more YouTube views than motivation , a viral video that every celebrity posted about to their millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter

        Shameless- 82 million views
        Motivation- 81 million streams

        😩😩😩

      • Shayla Queen January 22, 2020

        My color doesn’t define who I am or what I listen to.

        There is a difference between making a mistake as a child and being racist.

        For a grown man who wants to destroy a YOUNG GIRL’S life and career, that to me is worse than any racial comment.

        Don’t think that just because you’re q**** that makes you exempt from being misogynistic.

      • Cûûmila Cebolla January 22, 2020

        Whöremila is racist slüt. Stop blaming it on her age when she has shown racist behavior over YEARS

      • Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

        Like when?

  4. Ugghh January 22, 2020

    It’s not that great of a song. But to also be fair, society isn’t checking for two dark skin black girls on one single. You can’t argue that complexion doesn’t come into play. Also many aren’t excited for the movie in general. Comic geeks already are shîtting on the movie, but like I said, song isn’t that great too

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine January 22, 2020

      Don’t bring complexion into a space where it’s irrelevant. The song is bad and neither one brings ANYTHING unique to it. So instead their skin tone and society, blame their lack of “it” factor or musical personality to make the song spark.

      • Ugghh January 22, 2020

        Did you not read when I said the song isn’t good? Complexion still plays a part. This song is far better than Yummy lyrically and sonically, but guess who is on the charts – complexion is always a factor.

      • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine January 22, 2020

        Yummy is way better than this. Although generic, it’s still groovy And Justin Bieber is on of the biggest artists on the planet. And has a dance challenge. This is wack across the board and Megan isn’t spitting any bars. Color isn’t playing an issue. It’s just a bad song.

      • Shayla Queen January 22, 2020

        Finally, someone with some sense!

    • The baddest January 23, 2020

      Normani was the weak link on this one simply because of the weak hook, it’s not about race because the City girls, Meghan, Lizzo, Summer Walker just to name a few have been on the charts soooooo that isn’t the issue. I even said it to myself that Megan might get an L for this one simply because Normani l didn’t vocally bring it on the record. She is talented but she needs to find her own vibe and be very creative in her visuals s*** maybe borrow from Solange videos mixed with a little Beyonce might do the trick

      • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

        LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO @ society isn’t checking for 2 black skinned girls

  5. Dc January 22, 2020

    Lmao even moneybag yo her x got singles that’s higher up 😂😂😂😂

    • Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

      That’s to show u, people are checking for only megan thee stallion, not normani.

      • Dc January 22, 2020

        Umm no she’s not on his songs nobody checking for her either tbh

  6. Dc January 22, 2020

    The movie gon flop as well

  7. Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

    After all the hype
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Normani is only popular on Twitter.

    Normani stans what’s good?
    U guys said she was gonna end Camila in 2020 but here we are
    Camila has 3 songs on the chart right now
    Seniorita -24
    My oh my – 44
    South of the boarder- 56 (rose 5 spot)

    While normani hasn’t charted any song since 2020 began.
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 22, 2020

      YOU WANT TO BE NORMANI SO BAD 😂😂😂

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      they think twitter and instagram hype equal sales

  8. MessyBoots January 22, 2020

    No one cares.

    This generation of pop stars is doomed b/c aside from their stans on social media no one cares.

    The only ppl charting well are MALE rappers and WHITE female pop stars.

    • Shayla Queen January 22, 2020

      Agreed. There needs to be more diversity on the charts, for sure. Just Meg, Normani, nor this song ain’t it 🙈

      • Dc January 22, 2020

        Agree and haters thought meg would take cardi down she gotta get a hit first they be trying it 😂

    • Dc January 22, 2020

      Cardi had 3 number 1 singles she’s not male or white 👋🏽

      • Shayla Queen January 22, 2020

        Cardi is Queen!

      • MessyBoots January 22, 2020

        Cardi B is not white she is a Latina woman.

        She has a huge demographic of young folks, Latina girls in particular, that never purchased hip hop looking up to her. In order for a black female rapper to acheive the same level of success as Cardi they have to CROSSOVER to multiple demographics. You cant have a Lizzo or Cardi B without a singular crossover smash hit song.

        Like I said, your Halseys, Selenas, Justin’s, Ed’s, Male rap stars dominate the Billboard charts ONLY due to heavy streaming. The main Hot 100 charts will never be as diverse like they were before streaming took over.

        Can you name a black female artist aside from Lizzo who has dominated streaming, sales, and Billboard w/ a huge smash hit? Probably not.

        Can you name a white female artist who has dominated streaming, sales, and Billboard w/ a huge smash hit? Absolutely.

  9. only facts January 22, 2020

    I said in the first post about the song that this was Normani’s first misstep. The song was a no for me and Megan is CLEARLY staying in 2019. #next

    Is anyone even expecting big things from soundtrack songs in 2020?

    • Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

      Sunflower
      Shallow
      Love me like you do
      Skyfall
      Elastic heart
      All the stars

      All are soundtrack songs that did well.
      Even spirit by beyonce charted. lol

      Normani’s first misstep?
      Motivation was normani’s first misstep and it has been misstep after misstep since then

      Motivation remix feat. 21 savage
      Bad to u
      Now diamonds.

      Her next single is what’s gonna determine if she’s can redeem herself but I doubt it. She will flop.
      🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • only facts January 22, 2020

        Should we list all of Camila’s flops that failed to chart and/or impact the top 50?

    • 🙋🏿‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️Not 👹 TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️Nor 🗑 TRASHmine January 22, 2020

      Don’t Pretend to lower your expectations for soundtracks because your girls song is wack af. Soundtracks have brought some of the best music in history since the dawn of time, by quality artists so yes… we will always expect big things from soundtracks from artists who actually have the talent and art to provide Memorable music of quality. Maybe your girl just can’t pull it off

      • Dc January 22, 2020

        Exactly if it woulda been a hit they woulda loved soundtracks lol

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 22, 2020

      SHE SURE DOES HAVE MEGA FLOPS LIKE SHOULD WE BRING UP CRYING IN THE CLUB FLOPPING AS WELL AS I HAVE QUESTIONS 😂😂😂😂

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      people don’t want to believe it but Megan was left in summer 2019. Once Autum began she was out. She hasn’t had any impact and Hot Girl Summer peaked at 11. that’s the most she ever did. everything after that just became irrelevant. She only poppin on twitter and instagram where The Shade Room is getting paid to post her every 2 seconds.

  10. Clarks0oñ January 22, 2020

    Normani is coming
    Normani is coming

    Twitter and the real world are two different things.
    Twitter hype doesnt translate into sales on streams.

    Cancelling Camila is not gonna stop normani from flopping

    Calling Camila racist is not gonna stop normani from flopping

    Normani is not a star. Period

  13. Section8ThaGreat January 22, 2020

    They need to stop playing with these wack producers and get Pharrell, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Danja and the Clutch, Rodney Jerkins and Tricky Stewart to create them some REAL songs.

    • Shayla Queen January 22, 2020

      This song was dated enough. They don’t need an even more dated sound.

      • Section8ThaGreat January 22, 2020

        So it’s okay for you to create multiple accounts calling Normani a flop, but I cannot list of of Camila Cabello’s flops? Are you insulted that she’s released more flops than anyone else from Fifth Harmony? Girl, bye.

    January is about to come to an end.
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    U people said she was gonna dominate 2020, so explain this mess.

    Most of those flops Camila released all have 100 million streams and above.

    Liar has more streams than motivation
    Liar- 217 million streams
    Motivation- 147 million streams

    Let’s not forget motivation had a remix feat 21 savage. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Camila cant relate
    3 songs on the charts.
    They hate to see it

    • only facts January 22, 2020

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH January 22, 2020

      WITH ALL HER PROMO & PERFORMANCE SLOTS SHE SHOULD HAVE A LIST OF HITS WORTHY OF RIHANNA BUT FLOPMILA CANNOT SNAG SOLO HITS 😂😂

  19. High Price January 22, 2020

    The song wasn’t good at all. Visually it was definitely candy! But sound? Uuuhh… No. They’re definitely not playing that on any radio I listen to. BUT add some censorship and it could’ve been a Disney channel HIT! 🔥

    • Jeans January 22, 2020

      The song was str8 up wack AF!

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      A HIT ON DISNEY CHANNEL? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the shade

  20. Gee January 22, 2020

    The song itself is generic, so I didn’t expect to do much chart wise. Honestly Meg is using her time to perfect her twerking skills besides posing for pictures in the studio. Hopefully she finds her stride because as of right now she is has brought nothing fresh to the game. As for Normani she needs better material, and needs to find an image, and sound that works beyond social media hype.

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      she was left in 2019. she can’t revive after so many back to back flops

  21. Robert January 22, 2020

    Told ya so…this damn Normani poor baby just ain got that it factor. It’s the Nicole Shirzinger factor…you need them other broads to make you look better, because them other girls were just flat out terrible.

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      but she was never the Nicole from the group… That’s Camila who by the way has had a good amount of success on her own.

  22. CALRKSON January 22, 2020

    tbh it was normani that ruined the song idky but she just sounded fake love megs part she can do no wrong

  23. Adonis January 22, 2020

    Can you all stop trying to make Megan happen, she’s not gonna happen! Her music sucks, her rhymes are weak and she isn’t a beauty lol just stahp!

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      honestly people claim she’s not versatile enough and I see it. she sounds the same in every song so i guess she won’t have that crossover appeal as Cardi B and Nicki Minaj

  24. Swirly January 23, 2020

    The song sucks so this isn’t surprising.

    • POPS Muva January 23, 2020

      at this rate Normani needs to stop wasting her label’s money I can a Tinashe kinda career where she goes independent after failing to be commercial. As far as Megan idk what to say. Once Cardi B drops her first single, album cover and release date.. its a wrap.
