Wanted to show that even though makeup is fun to do it can feel like a necessity to some people. If you feel confident with it, that’s great! If you feel confident without it, also really great. But don’t ever feel like you need it to impress anyone. Do it for you. Do it because you love it.

anonymous asked:

Hi Sea. I was wondering if you could do a comparison between Harry and Zayn. I'm seeing a lot of "Harry is doing so great!" while ignoring that his second week numbers fell (quite a bit). From what I remember, Zayn's did the same and were considered a flop. Is this kind of drop normal/to be expected, and is this kind of drop a "flop"? I love your analyses, I always learn a lot and it helps clear my perception. So thank you for them!

Hi there,

Sorry for the late answer.

I didn’t have any hard numbers until this post popped up today:

Numbers-wise, Harry is ahead of Zayn. Realistically, they are not only competing against each other, but also against the top male artists.

Measuring album sales, and even top spots on the Billboard 100, are not the most accurate way to measure success, however.

Most recording artists generate the majority of their income these days from touring and endorsement deals. These are the highest earning acts from 2016 and the amount they earned (source: https://www.forbes.com/sites/zackomalleygreenburg/2016/11/30/the-worlds-highest-paid-musicians-of-2016/amp/).

1. Taylor Swift, $170 million: tour generated > $200 million gross, $4 million per concert
2. One Direction, $110 million. Tour > $200 million
3. Adele, $80.5 million
4. Madonna, $76.5 million (career earning $1.4 billion)
5. Rihanna, $75 million (21 top 5 singles)
6. Garth Brooks, $70 million
7. AC/DC, $67.5 million (touring w/ Axl Rose)
8. Rolling Stones, $66.5 million (from 27 shows)
9. Calvin Harris, $63 million
10. Diddy, $62 million

Justin Bieber came in at 13, with $56 million. In comparison to Harry and Zayn’s numbers, Justin’s “Purpose” sold 522,000 actual units in its first week, and in five weeks sold 1.01 million– his fifth consecutive album that sold over 1 million units.

Made In the A.M. in comparison sold 459,000 units; 402,000 in pure album sales in its first week. Source: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/chart-beat/6770300/justin-bieber-scores-sixth-no-1-album-on-billboard-200-charts-purpose

These are numbers for 1D’s albums:

Albums
2,095,000, Up All Night (2012)
2,043,000, Take Me Home (2012)
1,552,000, Midnight Memories (2013)
1,064,000, Four (2014)
853,000, Made in the A.M. (2015)

The drop in numbers is not an indication of lack of interest, but may reflect the importance of streaming.

Best-Selling Songs
4,888,000, “What Makes You Beautiful”
2,860,000, “Story of My Life”
1,637,000, “One Thing”
1,383,000, “Live While We’re Young”
1,275,000, “Best Song Ever”
1,208,000, “Drag Me Down”
1,138,000, “Little Things”
1,010,000, “Night Changes”
959,000, “Kiss You”
817,000, “Perfect”

So far, none of the 1D boys in their solo efforts have hit numbers anywhere close to One Direction. It’s early for Harry’s album, but it doesn’t appear he will break the 1 million units sold in 5 weeks that “Purpose” achieved.

“Mind of Mine” album sales dropped from 112k units to 44k first to second week. Harry’s album saw a larger first-week sale, but an 80% drop in its second week.

Sales aside is the pesky question of industry respectability. All of the 1D boys are chasing this elusive dream– by being more involved in the creative process.

Commercial success grants access to better collaborators in the industry– better collab artists, managers, writers, producers, label deals. The boys had clout collectively because of their revenue, but it’s a different story as solo artists.

Zayn lost some of his momentum because he didn’t tour MoM. Harry is obviously not aiming for commercial success on par with the biggest artists from the way he structured his HS1 tour.

But I have been very impressed with both of their solo work. They have put out excellent product, genuinely reflecting their musical interests and highlighting their strengths as musicians.

More important than the first solo album is often the second– I’m looking forward to Zayn’s second album. I loved MoM and everything he’s done since. Here’s hoping the Japan concerts are knock-outs.
