Do people not realize that Billboard can be easily manipulated? I feel like those who aren’t from the US seem to out themselves as experts and about whether their faves are relevant here. Physical sales here are next to none, digitals can be manipulated by excessive replays + vpn, itunes store accounts can be used as group order for those non-us fans, yt is just excessive streaming, the list goes on. Bad enough that our music industry here is made up of like 95% shmoozing. It’s all manipulated.
