    Combining just ONs first week spotify and youtube streams for the US that were publicly available by the platforms themselves it added up to 18.9M streams... this is without apple music streams counted or tidal or any of the other streaming services. But somehow the Billboard streams were 18.3M.


    Now on the left is Lady gaga's publically avaiable streams for youtube and spotify. they add up to 14.1M right and her billboard streams are 19.7M... that means around 5.6M stream for lady gaga we3re from the remaining streaming services.

    So for some reason Billboard not only doesn't count all the streams from youtube and spotify but also completely excludes their streams from other platforms.

    Wish they could be more transparent.

    Also that radio audiance comparison just makes me sad.

    ARMYs have been trying for a week. If only more media outlets wrote about it. Right now only 1 has and its a korean outlet. We need western media to write about it. But they won't

    To be honest, its very strange how most western charts run based on Nielsen data dont show their numbers in a clear and transparent way. What would be the harm in that?

    I'm not even sure why radio counts
    It's not like the audience really choose what they listen to, it's chosen for them

    RollingStone Chart should be more important. Doesn’t take radio into consideration just sales and streams.

    I’m thinking we should get more high profile people to speak up. Like TV personalities that’s support BTS. TV networks have been more nicer to BTS than radio this Cb and the ratings so good.

    Why is this one not banned yet? I dont get why this forum allows obvious dupes.

    I know youre jealous that BTS is better than your faves when it comes to talent, charting, impact and being loved by many people, but the solution is to be less of a failed fan and support your faves, not bashing BTS.

    There are some big interests to keep certain artists at the top and block BTS. Radioplay 0, not counting all the streams.

    I don’t think they realize how much army keeps up with the numbers.
    They have made it so obvious

    It honestly looks like the US music industry is trying to block BTS.

    I'll be honest
    I think tv networks only care about BTS when they need them for ratings and social media clout
    BTS being mistreated by others is irrelevant to them

    On the positive side, army always does their best when they feel opressed and like everyone is against them.

    We should take it as motivation for making BTS even bigger.

    Right, I forgot how we couldnt celebrate on's debut at 4th position properly because of billboard miscalculating their streams. And we still dont have the answers.
