    Why are fans being penalized for supporting their fav?

    They're not. Buying 100 copies of the same song still gives the artist the money they'd get for 100 sales. It just won't count towards billboard just like streaming songs on loop will be filtered out by billboard.

    Nah

    B****es work at Wendys and will spend half their paycheck so that millionaires can have a #1 for a week. Shout out to Billboard for not enabling this behavior.

    Why not ? If fans are willing to spend their own money on music why should it not count?

    so you think a company buying a million copies should count?

    Fans supporting their favs is not a issue. If someone wants to spend their wendys paycheque on nicki singles they can.

    Im always rooting for Nicki to fail but I think fans shouldnt be penalized for supporting

    Why shouldnt it count to billboard? Its their own money they are willingly spending. Streaming i get because u pay a flat fee 1 or 100 streams, but purchases are different

    The Billboard charts tabulate the relative weekly popularity of songs and albums in the United States and elsewhere

    Popularity, meaning supported by many people. Not a single person or corporation.

    you need to draw a line somewhere. Having no limit especially for digital singles/albums doesn't make sense. Its just sending money at that point.

    Na that's f***ed up. Bulk purchases should count. It still being bought and revenue generated

    And reducing what physical sales attributes to final sales is crazy

    I think BTS stans were doing chargebacks on bulk purchases after the sale was counted for the week so that's why they made a limit this year because Billboard doesn't want to have fake sales count and they're not able to go back and recount the correct amount every week

    Everyone complains about these new rules and some are unfair but Billboard is running out of options because no matter what they do Barbz, BTS, Cardi, etc stans are going to find a new way around every rule so they could help their favorite artists sales. The problem is these people have no f***ing lives and won't stop. It's insane and these artists make it worse by encouraging it like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj. Artists need to be held accountable but Billboard would look bad just going after them so these rules have to apply to everyone

    Yeah but my point is artists openly encourage fans to do things that game the system some are worse than others. They ruin it for everyone else
