Here's a post I made seven months ago, enjoy.
Not including featuring artists, there are 11 artists included in that post. Out of those 11, only 3 of them had a #1 hit at the time (I put Thrift Shop there before it had even entered the Top 10), and only 1 - P!nk - has had multiple #1 hits. In fact, 3 of those artists hadn't even had a single hit in the Top 20 at the time.
If you're gonna resort to pathetic attempts to drag people when they try to maturely make a statement, you're gonna get clocked
Anyways, I don't even know why I'm still responding to your posts. Your random, undeserved hatred of Macklemore is becoming even more annoying when you're not even accepting other people's points (you completely ignored the fact that Macklemore had like zero fans when he wrote Same Love, so it wasn't a grab for sales) and you're not willing to have a mature discussion with people who disagree with you. Your attitude in this thread is strikingly familiar to a user who used to post a lot in the 2012 thread, and that person eventually left because people refused to talk to him.
EDIT: Before I go, I'd like to add that I was a fan of Little Talks, Thrift Shop AND Somebody That I Used To Know all before they had even had a glimpse of popularity. I don't jump on bandwagons, hun, I come before them.
