Remember back in 2018 when capitol CEO said the same thing? :triggered: it was related to katy’s commercial performance disappointment but now its a common thing, and standalone single will became even more regular thing...

They should probably just be more generous with their royalties payouts:

https://qz.com/1507361/mariah-careys-record-breaking-day-shows-how-little-musicians-make-from-spotify/

Spotify pays whoever holds the rights to a song anywhere from $0.006 to $0.0084 per play. The rights “holder” can then split these earning between the record label, producers, artists, and songwriters, which means splitting pennies between many parties.

Assuming the popular song is paid at the highest price of .0084 cents per stream for 11 million listens, the rights holder or holders will earn $92,400 before splitting the earnings.

please patch the line

So this didn’t happen to Gaga because she constantly released every two years but I can say it did happen to Katy

To be honest Gaga didn't flop because she had ASIB. Still, Chromatica has mid success since not even 5 songs made it into the Hot 100 and the album keeps falling. I do believe if Gaga releases more often she could start doing pretty well actually, she did TFM in like 9 months and Joanne in 6, so I'm sure she can deliver a good ass piece of work in even less time. Taylor did folklore in 3 months, so I think Gaga could too tbh + I'm pretty sure she's really inspired rn about thw state of the world right now, so I predict LG7 will be pretty political.

I don’t understand those who want an album like every year from the artists they stan. It just turns into fast food music. I’d rather wait 3-4 years for a well made, fully conceptualized, well rounded body of work, over a collection of songs every year made solely to be commercially successful. I know many artists make great albums in little time like Taylor, but that’s because she wanted to make that album not because she felt obliged to make it to remain successful. But once artists feel the need to keep on churning out music it just loses its quality.

:applause:

Plus bigger gaps leave room for other projects. The ARTPOP era started in 2013, overlapped with Cheek to Cheek in 2014, she went on tour with Tony Bennett, in 2015 she broke on to the acting scene with AHS, made TIHTY and promoted the film, did the awards tour, and still delivered the masterpiece Joanne only a short three years after ARTPOP.

The Joanne era overlapped (a bit) with her landing the role in ASIB and solidified her as an actress for real. She hit a peak comparable to her debut with that project. The soundtrack smashed too. And a short two years after ASIB (or four years after Joanne), she drops Chromatica. An album full of bangers and quintessential Gaga magic.

To hell with anyone who tries to put her in a box with the likes of Taylor Swift or Katy Perry :nails: I hope Gaga continues to do what she's always done - remain interesting.

Edit:

Gaga already releases a ton of content actually :toofunny: I just realized in 12 years she's put out more albums than Michael Jackson did in almost 40 :toofunny:

What is anyone complaining about tbh :toofunny:

He basically said that he wants to turn artists into money making machines

No i think it’s more along the lines of an artist should be an artist. Creating music shouldn’t take 4 years and it’s sort of rude to fans to have to wait that long unless there is inescapable circumstances. Most artists want to be a musician for a few months then when their album dies down they wanna act, make makeup, do business ventures, etc. No shade to Gaga at! She gave us enigma amd the cure and a movie soundtrack. But Rihanna has no excuse. Lorde has no excuse, even Adele to me takes forever. Lol

Tbh I'm gonna take the middle ground on this, for an active artist it's a bit much to keep fans waiting more than 3 years for an album but if there's a valid reason then that's respectable.

Lorde makes incredible music, and she takes her time to make music she’s proud of and is sure her fans will love. Her fans know she delivers quality and quality takes time. She doesn’t owe them a music release every two years and they know that. Artists don’t need to put out music just to please her fans, they need to put out music that they’re satisfied with as well themselves, as they are the artists. It’s like a painter making a portrait he wants to turn out perfect and someone being at his side screaming at him to hurry up.
