Hype or consistency. Albums in particular and artists in general hope to get one of those two types of success.
The global impact of the 2012 album Born To Die upon release was immense for an unknown artist. How does Lana Del Rey, now up to 7 studio albums, perform a decade after her single Video Games went viral on YouTube?
Per Forbes, by the time Beyoncé released her last proper album Lemonade in 2016, she was worth $265 million. She is now up to $450 million.
It reveals how successful the superstar has been on several industries, to the surprise of nobody.
She now faces one of her strongest challenges yet. After smashing the physical era in her 20s with the Destiny’s Child and the download era in her 30s solo, now in her 40s, she returns with her first album to embrace the streaming world.
All artists face ups and downs. Some are more familiar with the former yet, one of them is American pop star Pink.
We are almost 20 years after her first solo UK #1 hit, Just Like A Pill. At that point, she had already amassed multiple top 10 smashes in both the US and the UK. It was barely the start, as two decades later her new releases are still making the headlines.
