Why did it only sell 11,000 copies?

Flesh without blood and especially California are billboard top 10 material
>>
it sucks
grimes is only popular with hipsters who dont buy music
she needs to go back to the visions sound
>>
People don't buy music anymore
>>
She tried sounding like pop but made her aesthetic weirder so the main crowd wouldn't pick her up
>>
Shit label
Shit fans
Quirky cover

And probably the fact that the people who like visions dislike AA and the people who would like AA dislike grimes
>>
>>61992685
Nothing really charted so it doesn't matter what was top ten material or not.

This too >>61992784

source?

>top 10 material

So it's shit then?

No wonder it flopped

you're actually right.

I looooove visions and literally physically cringed when I heard art angels. I ended up buying it anyway and I'm warming up to it though

Do you not know how to read?
>>
>>61994877

>California musician
When did she move stateside?
>>
>>61994927
She has a song called "Calfornia", I'm pretty sure they meant as the "California" singer.....

If they meant she was from California, it would've been phrased as the Californian singer.
>>
>>61992736

>Hipsters
>Visions

Pretty sure hipsters only liked Visions, otherwise they wouldn't be whining about Art Angels so much.
>>
>>61995129
Should've been in quotes probably.
>>
>>61992685
grimes fans like yourself rather shitpost on twitter and 4chan about how great grimes is. then pay for her music

so it's your fault
>>
>>61992685

her music videos have way more than that and you can bet she monetizes it

people who still think archaic forms of income are what entertainers rely on are idiots

also she owns her music so that 11 thousand which was the first week that came out months ago, is all going to her
>>
>>61995188
no she doesn't.......
roc nation and 4ad get a major cut.
>>
>>61993096
it sold 11,000 in the first week, OP is just shitposting I think or retarded

>>
>>61992815
You really think 4AD is that bad? I don't think the label is shit. The other two answers you provided are pretty spot on however.
>>
>>61995220
11,000 in the first week for a pop star is garbage. guess grimes is still hipster trash.

A voice of reason on mu? Well I'll be...
>>
>>61995267
I didn't say I liked or cared about Grimes. Just that OP was outright wrong.

>>61995281
Pretty much.

>>61995312
yeah but he makes a point. All these shitposting threads about how grimes sold out.
but she only sold 11k on the first week. which means grimes fans are poorfags who don't really like her enough to buy the album

i mean in the same article you linked panic in the disco sold 190k
shes still a nobody in music
thanks for the article lad, i'll link this everytime some retard post a grimes thread

>>61995236
4AD hasn't been relevant since the 80s. They release a few good things here and there but overall they are mostly bland indeh music these days
>>
>>61995430

how did she end up on a UK label anyways and why is it still co-managed since she signed with JayZ
>>
>>61995379
Most Grimes fans are people less rooted in the tradition of purchasing albums, and instead regard streaming services more highly than purchasing/pirating albums,. I'm sure they've streamed the album a somewhat significant number of times.

Regardless, she probably didn't spend that much making the album. I know she completed Visions in just a couple of weeks on Ableton or GarageBand or something like that. Touring alone probably makes her some serious cash.
>>
>>61995430
They had a pretty good run in the '90s.
>>
>>61995495
4AD is her actual label, but like most labels nowadays they can't/don't do much other than help record your album.

Roc Nation does her promotion and distribution.
>>
the Kill V Maim music video turns me on
>>
>>61995591
I like when she spazzes out dancing for like a two second shot.
>>
>>61995591

i wish the camera was in closer on her outfit in the car with the sexy hair back in a braid

she looks hot when her ears and neck are exposed
>>
>>61995633
>>61995617
Her tight little body and the shredded up leggings is wew
>>
>>61995430
4AD has Grimes, Holly Herndon, US Girls, Daughter, Purity Ring, Deerhunter, etc
they're far from "bland indeh"
the ones who actuallrelease bland indie are the big labels like sony and universal who signs faux-indie bands that make bland "indie-y" songs for the tumblr-gen
>>
It was out on spotify two weeks before and billboard doesnt mean shit because it doesnt count digital sales

stop being retarded
>>
>>61995760
All hacks compared to their heyday. These guys had Pixies, Cocteau Twins, Breeders, Lush, Bauhaus all at one time which none of the current day stuff compares to.
>>
>>61995430

Welcome to moo home of zit ridden NEETs and the authority on all things relevant

>>
>>61992685
she still too weird for the mainstream crowd
i know one girl that don't like her because she looks "satanic"
>>
>>61995770

plus it doesnt count walmart which is literally the top department store for selling most things which doesnt disclose their numbers

also most of the nielsen's shit is still just averages and estimates, NPD is the only trusted site and even then its only good 1 financial quarter after whatever you want to test since then, Walmart and other companies who are publically traded and actually have to list their profits and data then can get compiled into the stats

High school isn't the real world and this website has age restrictions fyi
