Comments from Chris DeVille

I was riding for that album back then though, so the arc is really more of a straight line (unless Tom is all about solo-chek)

I definitely not regret giving it a stronger push in our mid-year list voting. Will have to rectify that at year's end.

September 13, 2019 on The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Looks like his last #1 was "OMG" in 2010 and his last top 10 hit was "Scream" in 2012. He still went top 20 with "Climax" (2012) and "I Don't Mind" (2014), both of which are masterpieces IMO. But the best he could do with 2016's Hard II Love is #32 for "No Limit," which was especially sad because "Crash" from that album was so great.

If they would have released the whole thing all at once with no advance singles people would feel differently about it.

We aren't going to keep doing it every time a new song hits #1... this was more to establish that the churn has returned
