Have you ever been on Stan Twitter when Billboard updates one of its charts? It's a wild place. Be careful, or a stan army might try to cancel you. (Ask ASAP Ferg if you don't believe me). The same was true this week. In the days leading up to the new Billboard Hot 100 update, stan accounts were busy calculating projections for this week's chart. I don't know how they do it, but these projections are usually fairly accurate. This week, though, they were way off. Many projections had "Franchise" way down at No. 5 or No. 6, while BTS' "Dynamite" and Cardi B's Megan Thee Stallion-assisted "WAP" were in a neck-and-neck battle for the top spot. So, when Billboard announced that "Franchise" debuted at No. 1, Twitter was a mess. Lots of fans claimed Travis "cheated," which was reminiscent of Nicki Minaj's tweets back in 2018. There is, of course, no actual evidence that Travis cheated. Instead, this is another example of how confusing the charts are. The concept of what counts as a "sale" is very abstract, and with each update, the calculation methods become increasingly unclear. Fans are skeptical, and chart updates are routinely leading to the kind of widespread confusion that existed on Monday.
