IMO, you should return the artists table to the last page. It’s just not comfortable when it’s in a separate article.


Thanks a lot for doing Macklemore! Didn’t see that coming.

I knew that The Heist would have a good total due to its very strong streams but I didn’t expect it to be close to 10 million.

It’s good that Gemini doesn’t seem to continue the decline and even reverse the trend after the flop of This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
