Can newly established rock cred earn a former One Direction member a Grammy nod? The best-selling boy band famously never got recognized by the Grammys… and neither did Zayn Malik, in spite of a No. 1 single and album when he went solo in 2016. Yet Harry Styles may finally be the one to get a tip of the cap from the Recording Academy, thanks to a well-received debut album that serves up the type of guitar-driven song craft that the Grammys typically adore. Don’t expect an album of the year nod, but Styles’ single ‘Sign of the Times’ has endured in the top 40 of the Hot 100, and with its well-produced Bowie vibes, a song of the year inclusion isn’t out of the question.
Niall Horan's 'Flicker' Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart

One Direction joins only The Beatles as acts with three members each with solo No. 1s.

Niall Horan arrives atop the Billboard 200 chart with his debut solo album, Flicker. The set, which was released through Capitol Records on Oct. 20, starts with 152,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 26, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 128,000 were in traditional album sales.

Horan is the third member of group One Direction to notch a solo No. 1 album, a feat matched only by The Beatles. Horan follows fellow One Direction member Harry Styles (with his self-titled debut earlier in 2017) and former group member Zayn (with his debut album, Mind of Mine, in 2016). The Beatles spun off multiple solo No. 1s from George Harrison (two No. 1s), John Lennon (three No. 1s) and Paul McCartney (six No. 1s, including efforts alongside his band Wings).

One Direction, by the way, boasts four Billboard 200 No. 1s; The Beatles have banked a record 19.

BON VOYAGE S2. EP3 HIGHLIGHTS:
  • BTS play table bowling for pocket money
  • Jungkook who is usually good at bowling is so terrible at “table” bowling, he got -25$. Jhope got 3$. Rapmon 23$. Suga 9$.Jin 7$. Jimin got 4$. V 17$. Rapmon so far is the luckiest in Hawaii but Jungkook the lucky guy seems to be cursed in that land lol.
  • Jungkook will challenge again, giving up his basic meal for tomorrow yet he ended up getting the same minus 25$ again. Then Jimin tries and wagers all his 4$, he will end up with 0 if he fails and gets 10$ if he succeeds then he proposes if he gets more than 10$ for them to provide JK with a basic meal (but JK will refuse) and then Jimin hits the highest score 30$. Jhope will put his 3$ on the line and end up with none. End of story “never gamble” as JK said, “You will end up like me”.
  • BTS went hiking, Namjin dances to Spine breaker,  they take a pic all together, Jikook takes a selfie together and they admire the waterfall.
  • Jin is still saying Aloha to every stranger on the way.
  • BTS get the mission to each order his own food: The word that saved them “To go” = takeout. Rapmon will have no problem, Suga is as cool as always, Jimin ever repeated the order numerous time before going in and being so cute even the waitresses will smile, he will ask for the most famous drink and the old lady will say “Pepsi” to which they will both laugh". 
  • Jhope said that when he orders room service in hotels when they are touring, he can’t communicate so he just says “ok, ok” and eats whatever they get him. It’s a hit or miss. 
  • After ordering BTS get to have lunch: Everyone is using forks, but Jin is using the chopsticks he carries around everywhere. Jimin gets to have a bite of JK’s burger. They all share their food and have small-talk as they eat. 
  • BTS get to use their pocket money in a supermarket, JK and JH are left in the car. Jimin will get to buy instant noodles for the broke members and V will get them and apple and an orange each. 
  • BTS head to Maune Kea to see the stars of the big island: Jin even got to speak to a family (he totally forgot he came with BTS for a second). They really love the scenery so they take loads of photos of each other. They jokingly decide to come back there when they turn 50, but more importantly they each set group as staying healthy and making it to the top 100. Jhope wants to release his mixtape, Jungkook to master English (It’s his lifetime goal), Suga didn’t get to participate in the last album because of his mixtape so this year he is more determined. Jimin wants to sing well (even if Jungkook told him"you sing pretty well" and Jin added “his singing is perfect” then all the members approved, they all encourage him to make songs and covers too). Suga still wants to form a unit with Jimin. Jin promised to make an acoustic version of awake. They keep talking while appreciating the sunset. 
  • It’s night, BTS appreciate the stars, hold hands and make wishes: “please let us make it a big hit” “ARMY please always be happy” “I want to be a genius” (JK please). We also discover that Rapmon’s child dream was to be an astronomer like Galileo Galilei (for a year). At the end, BTS will get together and eat their dinner.
  • Arriving at the hotel, Jungkook gets to sleep on the couch (he is really unlucky in Hawaii), Jimin and Yoongi get to share the same bed and so did Rapmon and V, as for the rest they got to sleep on individual beds.

Following their exit from The X Factor, they released their debut single “Miss Movin’ On”, preceding their extended play Better Together, being certified gold in the United States. Its music video won the group the MTV Video Music Award for Artist to Watch. The group released their debut studio album Reflection in 2015, also receiving a gold certification in the country. The album included the singles “Boss”, “Sledgehammer” and “Worth It”. The latter achieved triple platinum certification in the United States and reached the top-ten in thirteen countries. The following year, “Work from Home”, the lead single from their second album 7/27, became the group’s first top-ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 and the first top-five by a girl group in a decade on that chart. On May 29, 2017, the group announced their new single, “Down”, featuring guest vocals from rapper Gucci Mane. The song was released on June 2, 2017. On July 24, 2017, during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the group announced that their third studio album would be titled Fifth Harmony, which is set to be released on August 25, 2017

Harry Styles Reflects on Life After One Direction & More at Grammy Museum in L.A.

Four months after releasing his eponymous debut and hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200, One Direction alumnus Harry Styles revisited the album with executive producer Jeff Bhasker during an hour-long chat moderated by famed journalist and film director Cameron Crowe at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on Friday night (Sept. 15).

During the conversation, the 23-year-old, who kicks off his world tour in San Francisco on Sept. 19, shared sharp and astute reflections on his artistic process, spanning everything from isolating himself in a studio in Jamaica to developing ideas to moving on from being in a band and how entering this chapter of his career allowed for new beginnings.

The chat began with Styles recalling how the record began: without any outside influence, and with nothing but fond memories of his time with 1D.

“We started the record without a label, so the start of the process didn’t feel like I was making any sort of commitment and I didn’t feel any pressure, [like] ‘You have to make this,’ or anyone have an influence on what they thought I should be making,” said Styles, clad in a black tee, black skinny jeans and a golf cap. “It was just a group of us writing stuff to have fun and writing some songs and seeing what came out with the thought that I would actually play them myself. I think that’s a large part of the record is that it started that way. It didn’t start from, what do they want? I think if you’re lucky, I didn’t go into making the album or leave the band coming out of it feeling suppressed or feeling like I never got to write what I wanted to write. I loved being in the band so much and got to learn so much, and with this, I felt like I could just have a good time working out what it would sound like if I made an album.”

When Bhasker, who has credits on projects from Beyonce and Rihanna to fun. and Mark Ronson, was first approached to work with Styles, he cancelled not one but two meetings with the pop star – something Styles was quick to remind him – but inevitably came around.

“I was in a place where I knew he was a very high profile person and artist and I was kind of searching for something else than doing that,” Bhasker explained. “When you come full circle, and I think the kind of music that we made, it’s so ironic that that first impulse I thought it would be, I think the album reflects it.” “To be honest, I didn’t know any of that,” quipped Styles to laughter. “I’m sort of sad! I mean it’s Hollywood, everyone cancels.”

Crowe served as a pensive moderator, drawing from anecdotes he learned from writing the Rolling Stone cover story on Styles in April 2017. “Are the best songs the most personal songs in general?” he asked. “I think my favorite songs,” responded Styles, “but my favorite way to listen to music is on my own, with my eyes closed for example, or not. If I’m driving, or operating machinery, I usually keep them open. But my favorite song on the album, the last song, ‘From the Dining Room,’ is the most personal to me and I think my favorite one. But I don’t think they have to be. I think it’s just as important to have songs that are fun and make you feel great, and I think that’s just as important as everything being moody and deep and meaningful.”

Bhasker recounted how he initially sat with Styles on his balcony, listening to reference tracks thinking they were Styles demos but were actually White Stripes songs. Bhasker initially had mentee producers hit the studio with Styles, but got more involved when the singer, wanting to unplug from distractions (including Instagram and Twitter, which Styles now rarely uses), took a recommendation from a friend to go to Jamaica to work in a singular recording space.

“I felt I was going into the studio to make an album I wanted to make,” said Styles. “I didn’t feel like, what do I need to make as Harry from that band for it to be good? I missed music. I just wanted to go on and write with my friends and have a good time and hopefully like what came out at the end.”

In the end, Harry Styles became a renowned success, spawning the single “Sign of the Times” that peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100, amid a year where his theatrical debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk also marked his first time at the top of the box office. The chat concluded with Styles taking a few questions from the fans, explaining that his signature rings that he wears are from various people including grandparents and for his goddaughter and even taking a kazoo from one fan who suggested he play any song of his choosing (he picked one from Shania Twain).

It wouldn’t be a night without some music, and Styles strapped on a six-string to play a stripped-down version of “Two Ghosts” alongside Bhasker on keys and guitarist Mitch Rowland. Some words from earlier rang true as he thanked the audience: “It made it so we were in Jamaica, we’re in the studio every day, we just didn’t think about anything else. It was about these five guys in a room, we’re in Jamaica, let’s make some music that we want to sit in Jamaica and listen to, and that was it. I found it so difficult to explain music and making it and so much of the details, and we just wanted to write what we wanted to listen to and what we loved. And we finished with an album that we’re so happy with.”

Way-Too-Early 2018 Grammys Contenders: Kendrick Lamar, Lorde & Ed Sheeran Take the Lead

Can newly established rock cred earn a former One Direction member a Grammy nod? The best-selling boy band famously never got recognized by the Grammys… and neither did Zayn Malik, in spite of a No. 1 single and album when he went solo in 2016. Yet Harry Styles may finally be the one to get a tip of the cap from the Recording Academy, thanks to a well-received debut album that serves up the type of guitar-driven song craft that the Grammys typically adore. Don’t expect an album of the year nod, but Styles’ single “Sign of the Times” has endured in the top 40 of the Hot 100, and with its well-produced Bowie vibes, a song of the year inclusion isn’t out of the question. (Also worth pointing out: Zayn could slide in this year with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” his duet with Grammy queen Taylor Swift.)

[NEWS] BLACKPINK’s “As If It’s Your Last” Is Only K-Pop MV To Place On YouTube’s “Top 25 Songs Of The Summer” Global Chart

YouTube has released their “Top 25 Songs of the Summer” charts, and BLACKPINK’s “As If It’s Your Last” has made it onto the global chart this year.

Nestled in between Charlie Puth’s “Attention” and CNCO’s “Reggaetón Lento,” BLACKPINK’s “As If It’s Your Last” is No. 15 on YouTube’s Top 25 Songs of the Summer global chart. The chart was created by compiling songs that were released in the last year and sorting them by their number of YouTube views globally from May 29, 2017 to September 4, 2017.

Currently, the “As If It’s Your Last” music video has over 135 million views, and hold the record for the fastest K-Pop group MV to hit 100 million views. It also broke records for fastest K-pop group MV to hit 10 million, 20 million and 40 million soon after its release.

Congratulations to BLACKPINK!

Britney Spears began teaching English to Rihanna in 2005 after Spears heard Rihanna’s single Pon de Replay from her Spanish-language album Music of the Sun. Britney saw a lot of potential in the Caribbean singer’s music career and knew that the only way she could achieve global success was if she knew English. Spears’ faith was validated when Rihanna released an English-language song, titled SOS, one year after the release of Pon De Replay and it became her first #1 single on the Hot 100 chart. Rihanna completed her education under Spears in 2011 and has since made herself into one of the top-earning singers in the world. Spears and Rihanna are pictured above at Rihanna’s graduation.

On this day in music history: October 19, 1985 - “Take On Me” by a-ha hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week. Written by Morten Harket, Magne Furuholem and Pål Waaktaar, it is the biggest hit for the Norwegian pop music trio. The version of “Take On Me” that becomes a worldwide hit is actually not the first version of the song recorded. The band first record and release the song as a single in Europe in 1984 which fails to attract any attention or chart. They re-record it with producer Alan Tarney (Cliff Richard, Leo Sayer) and it again fails to make an impact. Only after they make the now iconic video directed by Steve Barron (“Billie Jean”, “Don’t You Want Me”, “Money For Nothing”, “Electric Avenue”, “Africa”) that the record enters the charts and climbs to number one. Taking nearly four months alone to finish the clips distinctive rotoscoped animation, Warner Bros spends over $200,000 on the promotional video. Once MTV puts the clip in heavy rotation, the buzz generated by the innovative visuals of the infectious song spreads to radio. For the promotional release of the single, Warner Bros in the US prints a special gatefold picture sleeve/booklet (using the UK sleeve design for the front and back covers) featuring photos of the band and animated still shots from the music video. In later years, the limited promo “comic book” sleeve becomes a sought after collector’s item. Entering the Hot 100 at #91 on July 13, 1985, it climbs to the top of the chart fourteen weeks later. The success of “Take On Me” propels a-ha’s debut album “Hunting High And Low” to Platinum status in the US and several other countries. “Take On Me” spends twenty seven weeks on the Hot 100, tying with Diana Ross’ “Missing You” for the longest run on the chart that year. The video is nominated for eight MTV Video Music Awards (winning six) including Best New Artist and Best Concept Video in 1986.

Taylor Swift at Nos. 1 & 4 on Billboard Hot 100, as Cardi B Moves Up to No. 2

By: Gary Trust for Billboard
Date: September 11th 2017

Swift reigns for a second week with “Look What You Made Me Do” & debuts with “…Ready for It?” Plus, as Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” rises 3-2, solo women control the top two for the first time in almost three years.

Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Sept. 23). Swift also debuts at No. 4 on the Hot 100 with “…Ready for It?,” with both songs previewing her new album Reputation, due Nov. 10.

Meanwhile, Cardi B bumps 3-2 with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” marking the first time in nearly three years that solo women (in lead roles) rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on the Hot 100.

Also notably, Charlie Puth’s “Attention,” at No. 7 on the Hot 100, takes over as the most-heard song on U.S. radio, as it crowns the Radio Songs chart.

As we do every Monday, let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 12).

One thousand nights ago, you might have been listening to Taylor Swift’s 1989 for the first time. You might have blasting “Blank Space,” learning how to sing along to “Style” and gearing up to dance along to “Shake It Off” on the inevitable 1989 tour. October 27, 2014 seems like a long time ago now — as of Sunday (July 23), it was 1000 days ago — and since the release of Swift’s fifth album, the pop superstar has stayed extremely busy.

Could we talk about her charity work, the Kanye West-Kim Kardashian West drama, the AT&T deal, the Tom Hiddleston? Of course. But let’s focus, as Taylor often does herself, on the music. As fans await Taylor Swift’s post-1989 full-length follow-up, let’s review the songs that she’s given us (or performed, or co-signed) since her last opus.


RELEASES

By the end of 2016, it had become clear that Taylor Swift was not going to continue her streak of releasing a full-length album every other year, as she had done from 2006 up to 1989 in 2014. Yet three weeks before the end of last year, Swift returned with her first post-1989 song: “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” a duet with Zayn that was part of the Fifty Shades Darker original soundtrack. Produced by Taylor’s pal Jack Antonoff and following in the success of Fifty Shades soundtrack songs like The Weeknd’s “Earned It” and Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do,” “Forever” became Swift’s second soundtrack hit (following “Safe and Sound” from The Hunger Games) and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song’s video, released last January, has a whopping 361 million YouTube views.

Swift has also spent the downtime between albums to collect a few songwriting credits: “Better Man,” Little Big Town’s latest country hit, was written by Swift… although it wasn’t revealed that the pop superstar had penned it until a few weeks after its October 2016 release. “Better Man” topped the Hot Country Songs chart, and has been performed by Swift exactly once (more on that later).

Meanwhile, Swift also sneakily co-wrote “This Is What You Came For,” Calvin Harris’ hit from last year featuring Rihanna, under the pseudonym “Nils Sjöberg.” She was eventually outed as having a hand in her ex’s Top 10 smash, and the song’s official credits now include Swift’s name. She has performed it exactly twice (more on that later).

Aside from those three songs, the big music news of Swift’s post-1989 run has been where her previous output has been available. After famously locking herself in a stalemate against Spotify and agreeing to have only Apple Music serve as her streaming host, Swift unleashed her catalog upon all streaming services — Spotify, Tidal and Amazon included — on June 9, 2017, the same day that Katy Perry just so happened to release her new album, Witness. Four of Swift’s albums, including 1989, returned to the Billboard 200 albums chart following the streaming free-for-all.

TOURING

The entirety of the 1989 world tour was contained in 2015, and the 85 shows became that year’s biggest tour, taking in more than $200 million worldwide, per Billboard Boxscore. The big difference between 1989 and Swift’s previous tours, of course, was that she graduated to stadiums from arenas on her latest live run, and she’ll likely continue in that format whenever she goes back on the road. The tour was also captured in The 1989 World Tour Live, a concert film shot in Sydney and released in partnership with Apple Music in December 2015.

LIVE PERFORMANCES

Ten months after her 1989 tour wrapped up, Swift decided to put on a one-off show last October at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin – her only performance of 2016, and the first time she played “This Is What You Came For” herself (in a solo piano version, no less!). “As a songwriter, the most rewarding feeling in the world is writing something and then having the crowd sing it back to you because they know the words,” Swift said during the show.

Swift played the track again at a pre-Super Bowl performance in Houston earlier this year, in an event dubbed the AT&T Presents DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night. She also played “Better Man” and “This Is What You Came For” at the show, which has been Swift’s only performance of 2017… so far.


MUSIC VIDEOS

By now, we’ve all seen the seven music videos that came from the 1989 era. Some fun stats about them: the three biggest videos (“Shake It Off,” “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood”) have become Swift’s first to cross the 1 billion mark on YouTube, while the controversial “Wildest Dreams” clip is one of Swift’s five most-viewed videos ever at this point (“You Belong With Me,” from Fearless, rounds out that top tier). The live video for “New Romantics” was unveiled as an Apple Music exclusive, and has 66 million YouTube views to date. Joseph Kahn directed four of the videos, including “Out of the Woods,” which was filmed in New Zealand.

AWARDS/ACHIEVEMENTS

Essentially, Swift released 1989 in October 2014 and the accolades started pouring in almost immediately after. She was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2014, and “Shake It Off” was nominated for record of the year and song of the year at the 2015 Grammys. The song didn’t take home either prize, but Swift nabbed the big one the following year, when 1989 won album of the year at the Grammys in 2016. After previously winning the award for Fearless, Swift became the first female solo performer to win multiple AOTYs at the Grammys.

The Grammy win (along with two others in 2016) was simply the crown jewel in a long list of major achievements in the past 1000 days. Swift also won Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs in 2015 for “Bad Blood,” was given the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award at the ACM Awards that year, and 1989 became only the fifth album ever to spend its entire first year in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart. All told, 1989 has sold 6.1 million copies one thousand days into its existence, according to Nielsen Music, and in June, the RIAA certified Swift for having moved 100 million song units, second only to Rihanna among all artists in their rankings.

ADS

It’s worth noting that, while never commercially released, the sound of Swift rapping along to Drake and Future’s “Jumpman” does exist in this fair world. In a popular Apple Music ad, Swift rhymes along with the song on a treadmill before face-planting in epic fashion; she also toasted Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” and The Darkness’ “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” in separate Apple ads. Consider the homages a subtle co-sign of not just the songs in question, but of Apple’s playlist curation.

FRIEND SUPPORT

The cornerstone of Swift’s post-1989 music activity may very well be the role of “hypewoman” — that is, building up her pals and supporting their music online. She’s got mad love for squad members Lorde, Haim and Selena Gomez, and former tour mate Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” might have very well gotten a mini-bump due to an Instagram post in its favor. The biggest revelation for casual Swifies: Taylor’s still an enormous Kings of Leon fan! “I’ve been waiting for this album for SO LONG and it’s insane, you need it in your life,” she wrote of the rock band’s WALLS. Same with the 1989 follow-up, Taylor.

Good afternoon folks - and welcome to our first odds map of Eurovision 2017. Every year, I take odds from as many bookmakers as I can - of songs winning, reaching the top 10 or qualifying from the semi-finals - and aggregate them. I then convert their odds to the percentage of probability they imply: decimal odds of 5 or fractional odds of 4/1 imply a 20% chance, for example. Today, we’re going to have a look at the current odds given for songs to win Eurovision 2017.

At the minute, the bookies seem pretty confident about the prospect of our first Big 5 win since Lena’s: according to them, Italy have a mammoth possibility of getting a third victory, the first since Toto’s in 1990 - with 39.7% chance of winning the contest, three times as much as any other country. Lagging behind them, but still able to join a rarefied group of only 4 countries given more than 10% chance of a win, are the perennially highly-rated Sweden (12.6%), along with a country that made a huge splash on their return, Bulgaria (13.1%) and, given their third strong year in the odds, something of a nascent powerhouse in Belgium (10.4%). 

Three more countries join the select group of 8 whose songs have a 1/20 (5%) chance or better of winning. Australia (5.1%) has been consistently highly rated by oddmakers since joining the contest, and Armenia (6.1%) with 9/10 qualifications and 7/10 top 10 finishes are seldom underestimated, but the biggest - and for me, most pleasant - surprise of this year is to see Portugal (8.1%), with its nigh 60 year history of being underesteemed at the contest, up there as the song with the fifth best odds of winning. (I will make a little confession - in 30 years’ viewership, I’ve never felt so close to being “done” with the contest as I was last year. My hopes for Portugal’s timeless and moving song are a big part of what have kept me interested in 2017.) The top 10 is rounded off by the stylish effort by Azerbaijan (4.8%) and Russia (4.9%) - because, even though it seems that they will not send another singer, bookies don’t want to take the risk of them having to pay out if they do.

There are some remarkable geographic divisions when it comes to odds of winning - which I’ve tried to make stand out even further in a second map, where we divide this year’s songs into three categories. At the top of the pack, we have songs that are considered to have more chance of winning than the average song this year (the sum of probabilities calculated by bookies always exceeds 100% - because of this overrounding, our 43 songs this year have a total probability of winning of 160.5%, thus 3.73% average.) The second category are countries that do not pass the average song’s odds, but do have a higher chance of winning than the purely mathematical average of 1/43 (2.33%). The last category are countries that have a lower chance than that average. 

From this, we see an exceptionally poor showing from central Europe, with Poland (2.4%) being the only country narrowly rated above the purely statistical average. Years of dubious selections and underperformance have taken the shine off the once much-vaunted Nordic superpowers - these days, it feels like Sweden et al, and indeed, only Denmark (and if one includes them in both this and the Baltic branch, Estonia) exceed the statistical average (2.6% each). The Baltic countries, whose collective star has been in the ascendant for the past two years, seem to be slipping too - whilst the biggest contiguous group of countries tipped for the top this year are in the east of the Balkan peninsula - where we find not just 2nd placed Bulgaria, but also Serbia, Romania (3.9% each), Macedonia (3.4%) and Greece (3.1%) amongst those with better than statistical average odds. You can check a full list of current odds below.

We will come back to look at the odds at regular intervals before Eurovision - one can only wonder how much they will change in the next few weeks, especially as pre-parties and other opportunities to hear the songs live can make a big impact. Will our winner this year be one of the current top 5?

Guys

I legit cried today because Topp Dogg is so underrated

I cried listening to flower that is, like all the other songs in the album, a masterpiece.

Guys, i’m sure that if they are from a big company, they would be bursting South Korea right now.

All i ask for you is give Topp Dogg a chance.

Even if you didn’t like them before, their new album First Street is very different from they other stuff, and is pure gold. They have evolved greatly since then. Their dance is incredible as always.

You may not know, but they had their debut 3 years ago, and never won a single award on music shows. They didn’t enter the top 100 on charts this comeback yet. They had lost 4 members. And everytime someone big talks about them is to say bad things, and i’m not sure why??

I know you guys have your own favorites on kpop, that is hard to follow everything, but listen to them. If you don’t like it’s okay, but don’t let this chance pass. You can “lost” 5 minutes of your live giving them a chance, and it ends there. But you can also discover the best thing in your life. So why not?

If you are now curious about them, there is this post about the group and things to get into them.

Also, there is the comeback here. Rainy day is a beautiful song.

How to support them here.

Topp Klass, please help spread the word, our boys deverve attention. They deserve everything good. I’m trying so much… Thank you all that are doing your best, you are incredible. Love you guys.

You can share this on your social medias, you can share this everywhere.

Lets make Topp Dogg big!

Beyoncé Knowles: 20 times Grammy Award winner, the second most honored female artist by the Grammys and the most nominated woman in Grammy Award history with 52 nominations. She has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. RIAA recognized her as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s decade. As of December 2015, Beyoncé has sold 16 million albums and over 47 million digital songs in the United States as a solo artist. Critics hail her as one of the best entertainers in contemporary popular music. Forbes magazine listed her as the most powerful female musician of 2015.

Taylor Swift: 10 time Grammy Award winner, at 20 she became the youngest person ever to win Album of the Year at the Grammys with Fearless, a country album and at 26 she became the only female solo act in history to receive that award twice with 1989, a pop album. She has sold 27.67 million albums (March 2015) in the United States, making her the seventh-largest-selling female artist. She has written every single song of every album she has ever released. She’s the only artist in history to have three consecutive albums sold more than 1 million copies in its first week. Swift owns the most awarded country album in music history (Fearless) and the most awarded pop album in music history (1989). This year, BMI will present Taylor Swift with an award bearing her name in recognition of her incomparable creative and artistic talent and influence on music lovers throughout the world. (This is only the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the company has presented an award in someone’s name. The first was to Michael Jackson in 1990).

Adele: Academy Award Winner for best original song in a motion picture with Skyfall (2013) and 10 time Grammy Award Winner. She and Beyoncé hold the record of most Grammys won by a female artist in one night with six each. With 21 non-consecutive weeks at number 1 in the US, Adele broke the record for the longest number-1 album by a woman in Billboard history, beating the record formerly held by Whitney Houston’s soundtrack The Bodyguard.21 spent its 23rd week at number one in March 2012, making it the longest-running album at number one since 1985 and it became the fourth best-selling album of the past 10 years in the United States. 25 is the first album to sell more than 3 million copies in a week in Nielsen history, and only the second to surpass 2 million sold in a single frame. Adele is easily the best voice in music industry nowadays.

Beyoncé, Taylor, Adele, Gaga, Rihanna… You know one thing they all have in common? They make art maintaining true to themselves, they are unique in what they do, and that’s the key to their success. All these women can be successful at the same time in the same universe, crazy huh? Stop pitting women against each other.

Okay, but can we, like, appreciate B.A.P properly for a bit?

TS is not the only shitty company, but still. TS never had a lot of money, it’s a small company. Untouchable and Secret did a good job, and more or less B.A.P debuted with Secret’s money. And they did fucking well. 3000 people attended their debut showcase, that was a record back then. 

Yongguk produced every single album they released and shouldered everything, patiently taking care of the kids with Himchan (WHO IS NEVER APPRECIATED ENOUGH I’LL RANT ANOTHER DAY ABOUT HIM). Himchan most likely went through an eating disorder back then. They were popular, popular enough to have repaid their debts to TS fairly early. They were overworked, TS literally milked their talents and hard work without even paying them. They went to the hospital frequently and they didn’t have enough money to pay the fees. More than two years active with continuous comebacks and world tours and TS never paid them enough. And when they boys asked to have a look at their finances they were met with TS refusal and an “Everything is going well”. They didn’t even know how much money they made. Himchan once said that it would be fine if only him and Yongguk went through that, but that wasn’t the case, the other 4 were mistreated as well. They were planning to fill in a lawsuit for quite a while, but they delayed it because Junhong was still underage and had they done it at the time they would have to leave him behind. So they waited so that they could all leave together. Shortly after Junhong came of age, Himchan was treated in the hospital for exhaustion and stress and Daehyun was brought from the emergency room for a performance with an IV patch on his arm. A few days later B.A.P cleared their schedules and the lawsuit was announced. They were gone for a while and at some point Yongguk released “AM 4:44” which was what first made us think he suffers from depression. Junhong also released “No Title”, an excellent diss to TS, thank you very much. A few months later they came back, a big part of the fandom gone, now supporting other groups. But they survived. Daehyun went through his own phase, relying too much on alcohol for a while to relieve his stress. But they stayed together. They survived. They went back to working and they were a family again. Because that’s what they are, NO ONE can deny that. They started again from the beginning with literally nothing to support them on a stage where other groups were now becoming more popular. And then Yongguk’s panic disorder was diagnosed. And he went on a hiatus for a few months with his brother confirming that he had been working for years while being depressed. And the rest of B.A.P shouldered Yongguk’s responsibilities and kept working and promoting waiting for him to come back. And he did, and they’re together again now. And they’re doing well. They’re doing so fucking well. Korea is still sleeping on them, but fuck it. They’re doing well. They’re healthy, they have jobs, they make enough money to live comfortably and they are happy. Yongguk released “Yamazaki” on pm 4:44, telling us all that it’s not “Everything is gonna be alright” anymore. It IS alright. 

I know that that might be hard to believe since TS is a fucking mess. Secret has not had a comeback in more than two yeas, they also managed to completely destroy Sonamoo, a group that has some of the best performances out of all the rookie groups, (AND THAT’S A FUCKING ACHIEVEMENT TS, WELL DONE, YOU COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE USELESS), Untouchable are completely unknown to the fans now, the company’s employees were not paid for months, B.A.P had a makestar project to raise money and now a new boy band with ten members? Oh and btw TS also has a soloist whose name I can’t remember, but I don’t think she has had a comeback in several years. Well, TS is still useless. No arguments there. But B.A.P are fucking kings. They fought an abusive company, a long hiatus, depression, panic and eating disorders, alcoholism, and their music is always top quality, never missing the deep meanings and never restricted to one genre. And they’re fucking slaying everything. And it’s 100% them. They top the charts with zero back-up. I fucking love these kids.

That said, it’s still frustrating at what level Korea is sleeping on them. Last year at MAMA nominations for Best Male Group there were rookies included that had been promoting for only a few months, but B.A.P were overlooked. At a recent poll about the best idol producer Yongguk was not included either, and he’s third on the list for the most songs under his name. Junhong’s rap in Warrior broke a record of the fastest rap at a younger age without underground experience (he was 15 years old), and he’s not included in the list of Korea’s rappers. Korea, go home, you’re drunk.

BTS Crack the Bubbling Under Hot 100 With 'Spring Day,' Conquer Multiple Charts With 'You Never Walk Alone'

By releasing a new version of their hit Wings album coupled with four creatively challenging new songs and a truly powerful lead single, BTS continue to conquer new territory on multiple Billboard charts with the release of You Never Walk Alone.

Most notably, the K-pop boy band’s new single “Spring Day” debuts at No. 15 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart for the chart dated March 4, 2017. The Bubbling Under Hot 100 acts as an extension of the 25 songs that have yet to chart on the definitive Hot 100 singles chart and are just below the top 100 slots. Like the main Hot 100 chart, rankings are based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data.

The feat is truly unprecedented given K-pop’s history on Billboard’s singles chart. While the group does not land on the Hot 100 comparing them to the groups that have puts into perspective how the impressive chart performance of “Spring Day.”

Wonder Girls were the first K-pop act to chart on the Hot 100 with “Nobody,” a song that was a megahit when released in Korea in 2008 and eventually landed on the Hot 100 a year later thanks to the group re-recording it in English and performing it on U.S. television shows. CL also landed on the Hot 100 with “Lifted,” but again this was an English song promoted on The Late Late Show With James Corden. PSY is the only K-pop act to send Korean-language songs to the Hot 100 (so far, four of them), but has been assisted by an American record deal and management. To compare: BTS’ “Spring Day” is almost all in Korean, had zero promotions in America, was released new music during a notoriously competitive week with the 2017 Grammy Awards, and “Spring Day” dropped on a Sunday making their charting window smaller than other releases. The accomplishment gives hope and acts as a guiding light to the burgeoning K-pop scene and gives indication of how Korean acts can continue making their mark on the American industry.

“Spring Day” sold 14,000 digital downloads in the week ending Feb. 16, according to Nielsen Music. The total puts BTS at No. 1 on World Digital Songs Sales giving the band their third No. 1 on the chart. In fact, all four new songs from You Never Walk Alone hold down the first four slots making BTS the first act on World Digital Song Sales to do so. “Day” is followed by “Not Today” (which sold 12,000), “A Supplementary Story: You’ll Never Walk Alone” (8,000) and “Outro: Wings” (6,000).

Looking at You Never Walk Alone as a whole – a repackaged version of Wings that came with four new songs – the album debuts at No. 61 on the Billboard 200 – extending BTS’ record as the K-pop act with the most entries on America’s definitive albums chart to four. So far, they’ve bowed with The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2 (which hit No. 171), The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever (No. 107), and Wings (No. 26). G-Dragon and BIGBANG are the only other K-pop acts to boast more than one entry on the Billboard 200.

And as if they couldn’t have more to celebrate, You Never Walk Alone debuts at No. 1 on World Albums giving BTS their third chart-topper on that ranking.

Check back to Billboard.com the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 22 to see BTS’ accomplishments when all the charts are refreshed.

Super Junior Achievements, Record, Awards etc. (could also be named Suju appreciation Spam)

I know many Elfs are upset and robbed by SM and Mama and GDA truthfully I still feel a bit of bitterness but I decided to make this to Show that no matter what happens Super Junior have achieved so much and contributed so much to the genre kpop. hopefully this makes you feel a bit better or at least smile a bit. Also hope this shows those who keep discrediting Suju for losing 3 measly awards at Mama and getting snubbed at the GDA for being to good or those people I have seen saying Super Junior are washed up and old. Remember I might have missed some things here and there and made a few mistakes I did the best i could to include as much info as I could find. Super Junior have so many achievements it’s hard to keep up.

So we have reached the end if you have made it this far congrats and I hope you liked this and it made you feel a bit better if you felt a bit upset or sad or angry or anything else over Sm being little shits as well as mama and gda. At the end this means nothing because they got kicked out for being to good. Let’s just focus on the hollywood awards the seoul music awards and just showing suju we still care for them let’s give them awards more meaningful. As far as I heard people were saying apparently chinese elfs were working on a GDA trophy again. so you go c-elfs

At the end of the day remember Sm needs Super Junior, Super Junior don’t need SM. Super Junior helped make SM what it is today. One day hopefully they realize how much they needed super junior in the end. also apparently after all this shit SM pulled on SUJU stocks dropped which fills me with some sort of satisfaction to be honest. 

As Donghae said in Superman 

“If they ask us who we are, we show them our results”

anyway it is cold and raining and 2 in the morning so i am going to go listen to superman 100 times while i drift of to sleep slowly. hope you enjoyed. <3
