I am very amused at watching the rollout of Ole Girls "comeback"/ WAP. I knew that they would have the bloggers, some publications, and other artists hyping the song, but they have gone way overboard to the point it looks very desperate. I don't know if this was always planned or is this Plan B after they saw the bad response to the song. This is what I am noticing:
1) The music sites are limiting their talk on other artists and songs, except WAP. They usually are talking about artists or new music or something all day. It's like a blackout is going on. It's very little talk not as much.
2) We know about the fake women empowerment sh*t. But, I think the debates on Twitter around the song are fake to get women to stream or buy out of need to show the men. Ole Girl is always trying to get into it with politicians so she can go viral. You expect me to believe there just so happen to be politicians caring about this song so much they Tweet her "Hey Cardi B..." WTF. It looks so staged to me. The women pushing the discussion are all writers.
Are we really going act like women haven't been dropping sexy songs and people been saying slick sh*t. Why would we care more about it now? Why is it women empowerment now?? Some are even trying to say this song is women empowerment while the others were just girls trying to be sexy. I swear some of these womanist have a fetish for Cardi B's stripper story. I need to talk about that later.
3) They are getting blue checkmark industry people to talk about the song, especially female artists. Cardi B noticed Queen Key the other day and now she is tweeting about the song lol. The way they tweet about it is weird too.
4) I think they are trying to get the song to debut at #1 because Nicki did it. Which brings me to the Nicki things. They are going back to using Nicki Minaj in some form or fashion. This shows me they are desperate. Ole Girl has to play nice, but the people around her/supporters are still trying to make this a competition. Ya'll saw on Twitter I posted rapper Phonte trying to shade HGS. He acts like HGS didn't have TWO women rapping. Wap has one lol.
If this song debuts at #1 it's not a big deal when everyone in the industry was setting it up. Not to mention the rumors of fanpages being sent money to buy the song. Nicki went #1 while the industry was against her. After her #1 they changed Billboard rules. So, it's not the same.
For Cardi B, if she debuts #1 big deal and if not...DAMNNN with all that push.
