Was like watching the Teletubbies minus the costumes.

Good for them I guess.

I love that I now know who this group is, but that music is so not my thing.

Pop music has aways been a litte wacky.

I have a feeling that those numbers are artificial, but good for them

Hooray, indentured servitude is the in thing I guess.

I don't like American pop because it sucks as music. K-Pop could be Mozart, Beethoven, and Bach rolled into one and it would still be an evil enterprise as far as humanity/entertainment are concerned.

Watching it now.  It's generic and terrible.  I wonder how successful they'd be if they were all 40 and fat but the music was identical?

I think you may have just cracked the code on pop music. Congrats.

I heard that song through my Alexa last week. My wife listens to Z100 in the morning. I thought it was Bruno Mars. I learned something.

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: I have a feeling that those numbers are artificial, but good for them


Larry Harris, co-founder of Casablanca Records, in Behind the Mask: "With my association with Billboard, I was able to get five Kiss albums on the charts at one time; this was around '77, '78. I walked in and gave them inflated sales figures, which they could have easily checked if they chose to but they didn't ... This was happening all over the business. In the record industry, if you go top 100 in Billboard with your product, the rack jobbers, the people who sell records in Wal-Mart and Kmart, those huge mass merchandisers, will take your record. If you're not top 100 in Billboard they won't."

Luckily it only happens with acts you don't like

In the music industry it's the numbers that aren't inflated that are the exception.

That goes double for YT.  They know most of their hits are bots and don't care.
