I think streaming points have really affected the Billboard Charts right now which is a huge shame. I get that streaming is seemingly the future of music distribution, but I think digital sales should have more bearing on the charts than streaming. Half these songs would not be in the top 10/20 without streaming, and so many good songs are not getting the chart recognition they deserve because they aren’t doing as well on streaming charts as they are on digital sales charts (Pink, Kelly, Fergie, etc.).
I like Bodak Yellow, and I like Cardi, but her chart success and hype is wayyyy overrated.
