Re: Biggest Fan - July 2019

The funny thing is hearing how many Europeans are calling I Need a Dollar a huge, inescapable hit when I just heard it by chance a few years ago and it never really dented the charts here.

I would’ve put Can I Get A... on my list if I’d heard it earlier. It’s an 8, but I’m sad because there isn’t really a perfect blend between the uncensored version (which has a weaker chorus) and the censored version (which has a better chorus but censors a lot of stuff in the verses).
