I read some interesting takes on this issue. Most songs pander to young female insecurity. Otherwise, the country music industry is far more irrelevant than we perceive it to be. Radio may still be important but it is increasingly less so. Hitparáda — Digital Top 100 Oficiální. Almost every line is a cliche.
Still, Billboard seems not just tone deaf to the concerns, while being willing to promote these landmark runs as they completely skew and mischaracterize decades of music history, putting artists who came before the new rules regime at a severe disadvantage. They have also opened for Brantley Gilbert, Jake Owen, Colt Ford and Dierks Bentley. However, after reading the article many myself included feel despair at the current state of things and the inability of true country fans let alone country luminaries to right the course of country music. There is glut so either the community as a whole needs to accept the new norm or we have to change the way we grade things Julliard does not take just anyone but apparently the Billboard Charts does simply because it got streamed a lot. They hope nobody notices their cyber crime, so that they can get away with it Scott free. Streaming a whole album does not accurately indicate what people like.
The editors at Billboard, the managers of Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line hope we keep our mouths shut. Certainly many have come close …. In any other walk of life …in any other business venture…. But the big question now is where does this madness end? The Hot Country Songs chart ranks songs from the genre based on sales, streams and radio airplay across all formats. All of a sudden, the handsome country singers are singing in front of a crowd.
The point is that this song is not a country song in anyway, shape or form. The fact that Meant to Be is still No. When a pop artist like Bebe Rexha is commanding such attention from the country industry, it pushes every other artist down a notch on the ladder, including your favorite artists, and the ones regularly promoted here. And unfortunately, the scores of songs and artists that should populate such charts will be whitewashed by one song that in the case of country, is not even native to the genre the charts are purported to record. Sadly, these artists suck and are corrupting the youth of today with vile lyrics. Country music fans care about these statistics because of the argument you have articulated.
On a completely different note, I was wondering if you had any thoughts or insights on The Band Perry going full on electronic? Select Platinum in the Certification field. Very few of them want art or insight. Billboard is looking out of touch and foolish at this point. It would be one Florida Georgia Line song knocking another Florida Georgia Line song out of the 1 spot. Hitparáda — Singles Digital Top 100 Oficiálna. I follow Bill Burr who has complained about the softening of sports for some time now.
Hitparáda — Radio Top 100 Oficiálna. As I recall The Beatles did not have the most 1 hits on Cash Box. Obviously it sucks, and I suppose I must still care, because it pisses me off. Rexha joins forces with superstar country duo Florida Georgia Line. See this goes If it's to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby, if it's to be I don't mean to be so uptight, but my heart's been hurt a times By a guys that didn't me right I ain't gon' lie, ain't lie 'Cause I'm of the fake love, show me what you're made of Boy, make me believe But hold up, girl, don't you know you're beautiful? The dominant radio trends for the awhile now have been all about reaching the young, Instagram-friendly demographic.
And it's easy to see Maybe we do Maybe we don't Maybe we will Maybe we won't If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby just let it be If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby just let it be So won't you ride with me, ride with me? The song has sold 1,413,000 copies in the United States as of March 2019. Sure, Carrie Underwood just had the best sales week of any female artist this year. People streamed the whole album but most used it as background noise. Baby lay on back and relax, kick your pretty feet up on my dash No need to go nowhere fast, let's enjoy right here where we at Who knows where this road supposed to lead? In every other walk of life you need to compete , you need to prove yourself …. See this goes If it's to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby, if it's to be So, c'mon ride with me, ride with me See this goes So, c'mon ride with me, ride with me Baby, if it's to be Maybe we do Maybe we don't Maybe we will Maybe we won't But if it's to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby, just let it be If it's to be, it'll be, it'll be c'mon Baby, just let it be let's go So, won't you ride with me, ride with me? Dissemination of music is now more diverse than it ever had been but it seems that control over what is popular is more centralized now.
It occupies 17 on the all-genre Hot 100. Would you honestly have given that song a second listen were it not for your kids? We got nothing but time everything's gonna be alright If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby just let it be If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be Baby just let it be So won't you ride with me, ride with me? In my opinion, a song should be retired from the main chart once it moves to recurrent at radio. The visual story begins with pop-singer Bebe Rexha hitchhiking her way through the prairie. Although it has cooled down in all three areas, it remains a strong across-the-board performer. My dad would never listen to this crap if I liked it. Type Bebe Rexha in the top right search bar. How to make that happen, I have no idea but in order to save country music, I think we need to just save music from the gatekeepers.
Hitparáda — Radio Top 100 Oficiální. It must be very extremely frustrating for commercial songwriters who are trying to write great songs every day to see this kind of drivel stay at the top so long. So it is not an active choice to listen to a song that may be 1 due to streams. I think there needs to be a full scale rebellion against the gatekeepers. Meant To Be is such a flavorless pop song. And heck from one dance club to the next you have different songs that catch on.
