    Their sales are insane. Do they count sales outside of the US with US views?

    U know what I’m a piece of sht. Lemme give Normani a fair shot. I’m sorry you guys. Deep down my parents are racist, I’m overweight and to uphold the family tradition I’m just trying to follow the footsteps what’s in my will. U all have to understand right? Sorry again 😢

      Someone REALLY loves Normani with her one flop song and no-career-having ashy ass. It’ll all be ok, boo 💋

    I live in America. I know a lot of Americans… I have never heard of this song. This is some Asian interference.

    But does it count when their fans stream from South Korea with VPNs?
