I use Summer Walker as an example because despite being an industry plant with any obvious push, she flies relatively under the radar. But I’ve never heard anyone even mention her before, let alone hear her music being played anywhere.

If you’re big on the Internet you’re most likely big irl too.
Thats not true. I can make a stan account for an artist tomorrow, get it to 15k followers, and that doesn’t mean shit. Doesn’t mean I actually fw the artist, listen to their music, or support them. Same goes with streams. Look at whatever the top trending video on YouTube are. Millions of views, but how many people irl are aware these videos exist? It’s far and few in between.

Internet hype is easily miscalculated and conflated.

There are ways to track engagement and active users. This argument only works if you assume most of these people have more fake engagement than real
