Hits Daily Double and Tyler the Creator accuse Tidal of rigging the charts


  • Lana Del Rey, Meek Mill, and Tyler the Creator are in a very close race for the #1 album on next week's Billboard chart.

  • Lana is currently in the lead with a projected 85-90k SPS, 60-65k pure sales. Meek Mill is next with 85-90k SPS, 40-45k pure sales. Tyler is 3rd with 80-85k SPS, 48-53k pure sales (more pure sales than Meek, but less in SPS).

  • Both Tyler the Creator and Hits Daily Double are saying that Tidal is manipulating the charts.

  • Meek Mill's album requires no free trial or Tidal account to listen to the album, meaning that no revenue is generated from the streams. This is different from Spotify where free accounts have ads and therefore generate revenue.

  • HDD says that Billboard is planning to count these streams and that many of the lower staff members think this is the most blatant example of chart manipulation being counted in recent memory and are angry at the higher ups for not stopping it. For example, when Tidal, Samsung, and Sprint bought a million copies of Rihanna's ANTI and Jay Z's Magna Carta and 4:44, Billboard did not count it on the charts (tho RIAA did count it for platnium certification).

Tidal claiming huge streaming numbers despite being the lowest revenue generator out of every streaming service turning out to be liars and cheaters? I'm SHOCKED

Did you watch the movie? Thoughts? Which Marvel character would you like to see interact with Spider-man in the sequel?

Legendary voice actress June Foray passes away at 99 (1917-2017)




If you've watched a cartoon in the last 70 years or so, you heard her voice at some point. Foray's lengthy list of credits includes, most prominently, voicing Granny in all Looney Tunes productions from 1955 to 2014, as well as Rocky and Natasha in the original Rocky and Bullwinkle show, Grammi Gummi on Gummi Bears, Aunt May on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, assorted voices on the 1980s The Smurfs, and Mulan's grandmother in Mulan.

RIP.

“Insecure,” “The Young Pope,” and Music Supervision as Character Development




◘ For the first time ever in Emmy history, the academy is recognizing music supervisors.
Nominees in this category include: Master of None, Girls, Better Call Saul, Big Little Lies, and Stranger Things
◘ Arguably, two of the strongest uses of "music as character" in this category were left out. HBO's The Young Pope and Insecure.
Insecure's season one was supervised by Kier Lehman and Solange. Each episode they curated approximately an album's wroth of largely independent hip-hop and R&B.
Insecure is an excellent example of how a series can use a soundtrack as a tool for character development
The Young Pope also uses music to this end, drawing inspiration and contradiction from using contemporary pop tracks against the ritualistic, old-school backdrop of Catholicism
◘ Both Insecure and the Young Pope use music to convey emotion better than dialogue ever could
◘ Other standouts: FC's Legion, USA's MR Robot and ABC's Scandal. OP would like to add FX's The Americans to this list

See some HBO music supervision highlights in action. Be warned some scenes might be spoilers if you haven't watched the series.

The View talks about Scaramucci calling for an investigation of leaks


Today's hosts: Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila and Whoopi Goldberg
Today's 🔥 topics:
It's Thursday. Why does this week feel so long? Well, the View talks about Scaramucci subtweeting Reince Priebus about leaks happening in the White House. They discuss his appearance on CNN this morning in which it looked like as Joy said didn't know if periods existed. They talk about how it seems like the White House is now against the establishment which Priebus represents. Joy speculates that since Scaramucci is appearing everywhere and has a big personality he will be next in the chopping block.

They talk further about the transgender ban that 45 has done. They talk about how he just blindsided the Department of Defense. He didn't even talk to his Defense Secretary. They also speculate that he's just trying to win over the Evangelicals and Darth Pence's crowd.

[JOY: HE HAS A BIG PERSONALITY. 45 MIGHT BE THREATENED BY HIM.]

What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senators?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no-one died

I saw someone listed on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

ONTD Original: Carly Rae's cool aunts of musical influence

Over time, Carly Rae Jepsen has evolved from a quaint and cute, one-hit wonder with "Call Me Maybe", to a full-blown, pop princess with hits like "Run Away With Me" and "Cut to the Feeling". These bops are flashbacks to the days of Saved By the Bell, the best Batman films, and when McDonalds sold pizza.

But what keeps Carly's creative fires burning at night? Who are the women that come to Carly in her dreams to whisper sweet, sparkle-pop influences into her ear? Who are her "Joanne"s? Let's dive in to Carly Rae's cool aunts of musical influence that may or may not be possessing her.

1. Amy Grant - Every Heartbeat (1991)

"Heart In Motion" was Amy Grant's eighth studio album and first venture from Christian Pop into Contemporary. Her first track "Baby Baby" hit number one on Billboard, and Grant's second single "Every Heartbeat" landed at number two. Like Carly, Amy knows how to get right down to your kindergarten feels with sweet, unproblematic pop that God probably listens to on her way to church.

Possible possession...

What do you think, ONTD? Are there any other possible influencers that Carly may call the corners to? Are you possessed with any spiritual beings that get you through life?

Tom Hardy to Star in Bosnian War Movie

- It's based on a book “My War Gone By, I Miss It So” by Anthony Loyd. The book is about: "Lloyd’s personal account of the Bosnian War, and alternates between his experiences in Bosnia and personal reflections of his time in the British army, his parents’ divorce, his estrangement from his father, and his heroin addiction."

-
The author wanted to go to Bosnia because his family was really into military: "Loyd was born into a distinguished family steeped in military tradition, raised on stories of wartime and ancestral heroes. He longed to experience war from the front lines, so he left England at age 26 to document the conflict in Bosnia, where he witnessed a lethal struggle among the Serbs, Croatians, and Bosnian Muslims. Addicted to the adrenaline of armed combat, he returned home to wage a personal battle against substance abuse."

- Tom Hardy thinks it's a really important book, so he will both produce and star in the movie.

- Gavin O’Connor will direct the movie.

Celebs React to Political News: Moochi Loses It & Healthcare (again)



Today members of the Senate GOP drafted up the 'skinny' healthcare bill over lunch. The skinny bill would take insurance from 16 million people and raise premiums by at least 20%. Senators like Graham and McCain say it's garbage, but WILL vote for it if the Conference Committee will NOT vote for it. If you're confused it's because these people are crazy and logic means nothing in Tramp's world. A Conference Committee happens when the House and Senate have different bills so some GOP members from both get together and come up with new ways to compromise screw over the American people. Cheers!

The newest swamp member, Scaramucci, had some interesting things to say about President Bannon and others in the administration, in an interview with the New Yorker. "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic," “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” and "I want to fucking kill all the leakers." He also threaten to fire everyone to weed out the leakers when the interviewer wouldn't share who his source was. Sounds like he'll fit right in.

[More Tweets: I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you.]

Shania releases "Life's About To Get Good" MV



The new video shows the Canadian Chanteuse slamming her ex husband while showing off her past music video looks in spectacular fashion. The iconic queen, currently trending at number 17 on YouTube, rocks a beach vibe for her new video and seems to be shaking off the past.

Shania also talked about writing the album alone. “I was determined to do it alone. Because I had been in a co-writing scenario for all those years, and this was going to be the first time after all that time that I’ve written solely alone, so it’s all about independence, and I needed to learn that about myself, I needed to rediscover that about myself.”

About releasing Poor Me, Shania said, “Even though it has the most sadness to it, as a songwriter, it was creatively very fun to write ‘Poor Me.’”

Tiffany Haddish Admits Cosby Joke was 'Bad'

A follow-up to this post, where the actress said she would still work with Bill Cosby and...added a rape joke for good measure.

Well, she came to her senses to a Vanity Fair reporter: "I don't know if you've ever been interviewed. You go through 27 interviews and you're supposed to be humorous -- sometimes you are going to make bad jokes."

She continues with a questionable quote that she won't do a role that will "compromise her morals" and while she doesn't agree with Cosby's actions, she "isn't afraid of the Big Bad Wolf."
