👏👏👏👏

We see it far too many times when a song's success influences how people view it in terms of their enjoyment.

Of course it's a bonus, but this comment from her is so spot on!

This is such a great attitude! I must admit that it's fantastic to be a fan of Ariana for many reasons and one is that she does often find success with her material. The 'will 'Don't Call Me Angel' get to #1?' edge of the single campaign adds excitement to it, it's a real bonus. But ultimately, I will always value quality over success too.

Hire me, Ariana *.*

I agree with her though! I don't let a chart position affect my enjoyment of the song, certainly not anymore. Maybe years ago when I was more chart obsessed I was sometimes guilty of this. Let's say I'd not exactly get much enjoyment out of being a Carly Rae Jepsen fan if I cared too deeply about the charts nowadays lol~

Going by chart positions

Two of Arianas #1s (out of her 5 UK #1s to date) are some of my least favourite of her tracks.

So with Ariana some of my favourite tracks by her are either album tracks or smashes what missed #1.

Sometimes itís hard though to not get caught up in the get this to #1 type talk especially when itís an artist like Ariana who actually stands a chance of doing so with other people I love though Iíd be thrilled if they even made top ten.

But a song being a #1 song wouldnít make me suddenly love it if I wasnít keen on it before hand, same as I wouldnít dislike something I loved if it missed the top 40 Like Love Me Harder still snaps hard for me!

This topic is relevant again after some comments she's made on social media today:





I admire her honesty as always!

I feel like her being HUGE for the last two years can be a curse as well because everyone now has unrealistic expectations laugh.gif She's doing just fine, #1 or not.

Her stance on it is absolutely the correct stance to have imo. If it's a huge number 1, then bonus! But it really, REALLY shouldn't dictate how you feel about the song. I REALLY need her to be number 1 over what is currently looking like the more likely option though puke.gif puke.gif He really shouldn't be allowed to be able to profit anything after being convicted of the crimes he did... but hey, that's a whole other topic of conversation!

I love what she said there heart.gif

Iím sort of one of those fans at times as well whoís like I hope this goes to #1 (Iíve done it a lot with Chromatica and that ainít even out) but it doesnít necessarily change my thoughts on a song itís just like an added bonus.

But bc sheís had such extreme success recently it feels like her fans just want that to continue and it will as well! Plus often #1 isnít necessarily a first week kinda thing especially in the US when typically songs take even longer to peak there than they do here.

She was discussing it on her Instagram stories too but that's been deleted as well. laugh.gif

She said at the end that she hoped Doja, Megan or The Weeknd gets the #1. I enjoyed the omission of a certain other artist. laugh.gif

This is a healthy attitude to have and unfortunately there are a lot of (probably younger) pop fans who are OBSESSED with chart positions. It must be quite unpleasant for the popstars themselves to read when they really love the music they're making and want it to impact on people in a positive way.
