    Camicky only doubled Megan Ep sales

    Camicky had 10x more budget, videos, payola etc.

    This is Megan’s EP. Camicky had album campaign. ???

    No wonder Camicky was dropped

      Normani has been out longer than megan thee stallion
      Normani has 2 top songs while megan doesnt have any top 10s

      But normani opened for megan at the nba all stars show

      Normani was the opening act for megan who doesnt even have a top 10.
      Embarrassing
      ???

    A clear indication that normani was the weak link on diamonds.

    All megan’s solo songs are doing well except diamonds.

    Normani is dead weight. every song she appears on, it flops.

    it means absolutely NOTHING to be sitting atop some lame iTunes chart — especially genre specific.

    until the track exists in the top three slots of Billboard’s HOT 100, none of this other crap matters.

    you all post articles about people’s iTunes placement as if it has any bearing on real chart success. I DONT PERSONALLY CARE about genre specific tallies.

    it’s like saying, “such & such television series is the number one show on OWN”, but ranks #74 amongst all primetime series throughout the week.

    so does it’s OWN status really matter then? he|| no!!

    quit posting iTunes placement. it’s late!!

      U defeated your own point with your example. Sometimes wins are relative. Everybody can’t be in the top three spots of Billboards but it doesn’t mean their accomplishments aren’t worth talkin about

      • Brent Christopher March 21, 2020

        I AM CORRECT. If a song does not place in the TOP 40 of Billboard in this day & age, the track does not matter in the larger scheme of mainstream pop culture relevance. Every point I make is sensible & realistic to contemporary trends. Do not question or combat my statements.

    Who downloads from fcuking iTunes anymore?

    • Theman March 21, 2020

      If it’s charting their then quite a few people.

  6. Meme March 21, 2020

    I think this might be her top 10 charted song. This is it! My fav song by her so far. And I’m glad it doesn’t have a feature.

    Also hats off to this producer. This the same guy who produced all of cardi b hits, as well sally walker for Iggy. He works really well with female rappers. His vibe raw!

  7. Thunder Tunes March 21, 2020

    Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Savage’ deserves the top spot.

  8. MoTips March 21, 2020

    Congratulations to her, it’s not an easy thing to achieve these days. The music industry is too saturated.
