US radio charts are kind of interesting to look into but it's also a farce that tries its hardest to pretend it's organic, pretty sus tbh.

DJ's accepting payola has always been a scandal, ruins careers going back to the 50's and DJ Alan Freed. Anything involving cash and profits is always going to be subject to abuse. The main issue is: do the artists want to be associated with reputational damage caused by hirelings of their record label? Cos that's a lot harder to swallow and more long-term than chart positions being a few places lower.......

I think this week has shown that Shawn is one of the biggest Payola people on streaming too...

^yes, but all labels have deals with Spotify

the clearest example was the latest Sam Smith (Diamonds) insta-added as track #5 on HH

also a few weeks back, Little Mix-Holiday suddenly moved to track #5 when the song was terribly tanking and no one cared

It gave me a good laugh, some of that Zap guy's alleged texts are hilarious laugh.gif :

"Can we move Ellie c Goulding to a steady 40 a week? And x-ambassadors to start 5 a day. We need beach swag."

"Make sure we kill Lovely the band [sic] til Sat,”
