“Simon Cowell he would have his record contract cancelled by now.
Lambert is a failure without Queen and this proves it.”

Simon understands all genres and understands Freddie a lot, and if Simon was in charge of a huge label, I guarantee he’d turn down Adam.

If Simon did pick up Adam, goodbye electronic music crap.

But how many streams did it have? Come back when you have an argument that stands up in 2019's music climate.

Plus there's been a delay shipping CD's from Empire and physical copies aren't going to Amazon & HMV until Nov 1st so how accurate can sales be at this point!!!

WIll you never give it up? FACTS Are:
1) He was dropped by a major company and no major company was interested in him

2) His latest solo stuff was a HUGE flop did not chart anywhere and if he did not have the paychecks of QAL he would sell Hamburgers

At the end of the day, who cares what sales are? If you enjoy him and he is your favorite singer, you will support him. There are tons of worthy singers who aren't Freddie, hardly anyone is. Doesn't mean you are not successful or happy in your life. It isn't a competition although you always make it so. There are much lesser levels of success. There is hardly anyone at Freddie's level, so are they all losers? I guess so.

Just because we don’t like Adam, it doesn’t mean it’s due to Freddie.

I love all sorts of bands and artists.

Streams are included in the chart. Adam still failed to make the Billboard Hot 100. Pre-orders are also included in the chart.

“And how embarrassing when he was showing Johnathan how he picks up men, what a tit.”

Freddie would have said, “oh, don’t be stupid!” LOL

Pre Orders aren't included until shipped and I was talking about Freddie's streams, oh yeah there weren't any so comparing sales back in the 80's when that's all there were with artists sales now is pointless. And why compare Adam and Freddie anyway, you're completely obsessed by how Adam's music is doing but you don't like him or his music so why the interest? Just wanting to put him down - classy.

You have no idea why he parted with Warner so why make shit up?

It charted on the digital downloads and the physical CD's were delayed plus they aren't being sold until 1st Nov on Amazon & HMV so how do you work out how well it's doing yet?

Fact is he's gone indie so won't have huge chart success but that doesn't make it a failure, plenty of his fans are loving it and he'll tour once the whole album is out, how's that failure? How many bands are touring theaters and don't have huge chart hits, answer is plenty.

Just because he’s indie doesn’t mean he can’t create a hit. Downloads are unlimited.

Doesn’t matter. Streams are including in the Billboard Hot 100, so your discussion of streams is totally off-topic.

Because you keep lying about Adam’s sales by lying about excuses. Streams, pre-orders, indie.

Freddie had ads in Billboard magazine to promote his music.

Adam advertises 24/7 via Instagram and Facebook to millions and millions of people and still can’t create a hit. Being indie is no excuse, it’s the digital age.

I think I found out why Adam’s music doesn’t sell anymore. Look at that face. Chris Hanson is waiting.

Lol I know.

The good news is that while Adam’s music is slipping out of the charts, oh so sad, Freddie’s is climbing worldwide, including the USA.

Well that should show a Glambert or two here that Freddie legacy is firmly intact, and it doesn't need AL or Q+AL to boost it.
Freddie's legacy lives on.

How am I lying? Empire have emailed fans saying there was a delay with the CD's but now they're shipping (fact).

He was No 5 & 7 on two download charts (sales) but was low on the charts that include streaming (fact). Back in the day there was no streaming and people just bought music (fact), clearly the music industry having changed alters things a lot so comparing then and now is pointless.

Pre orders don't get included in sales until they're shipped and if the CD's aren't available only from Empire and Adam's website where there was a delay and aren't being actually sold at all from other outlets until Nov 1st then they can't have been included in any sales charts (fact). That article about the pre-order campaign is talking about creating buzz for an album and pre orders are a great idea but clearly you expect the items to be available on the date promised to impact the chart, that isn't always happening and nothing in that article says the pre orders count as sales if the items haven't been shipped by the date of release.

Most indie artist won't have the success on the charts that people like Taylor et al do with the backing of a major label and around 35 - 40 million followers who stream their music, that's just blatantly obvious (fact). There'll be the odd one's who break through but for the most part that doesn't happen.

Queen have 10 million subscribers on Y/tube, Adam has 1.3 million yet you somehow compare that with Freddie and Queen being in the charts, especially after the movie release and all the renewed interest in Queen/Freddie, sounds completely dumb to expect Adam to have the same level of success and no matter how many times he posts about his music on his instagram it won't make much difference since only his fans who already know about it will see it, they've already either bought it, streamed it or don't like it etc.

I'm not lying just stating the obvious. His music might "fail", depends what you class as failure, but why keep going on and on, it's childish IMO and makes you look like someone desperate to keep saying Freddie's better than Adam. There's no reason for comparison but no doubt that won't stop you so as you were!!!
