      Or the other way around. Ain’t like anybody who listens to dude is going to run out and cop her catalog after watching this. He needs her more than she needs him. Pop records reach a broader audience which equates to more sales.

        All of that is besides the point. Megan is using Yo Gotti for the Black co-sign just as Yo Gotti is using her. Thing is, history shows Black artists rarely benefit from these collaborations to the extent their white counterparts do. And the irony is they’re typically both doing Black music. So yea Yo Gotti will get his paltry increase in ‘single’ streams because ain’t nobody buying albums like that anyway, especially from Yo Gotti. But Megan will walk away with the Black co-sign back to scores of white fans who really don’t give a damn bout Black folks but LOVE Black culture. Same as it ever was. I wish the song was at least decent & not some Drake/Rihanna derivative riding the current ‘afro-beat’ wave.

          You ever think about it being HIS decision to work with HER? You act like she’s the only one benefiting? You “Black Culture” activists are mad pretentious. Here sales from her debut album trump his entire catalog in sales. Smh. Y’all are a trip.

          • ayohellno

            Duh bra, another missed point. It’s obvs a mutual decision. And it’s obvs a common practice. But who gives a fuck? We’re not debating the benefits of working with a popular artist. There are of course benefits. The point I’m making is the assumption that Yo Gotti believing this collaboration is going to contribute significant increases to his fanbase, which odds are untrue. If anything it’ll extend the little run he’s having with ‘DM’ & with a follow up…which Yo Gotti has never had a more successful single so who knows…balls in his court. Meanwhile though, Megan will continue her bland career riding the Black wave. & the ludicrous notion that Black music isn’t the only wave when the two artists in question are obviously ones that do & benefit from black music is like…why even make that silly statement? Now I understand if none of this means anything to you. But it does to me. Literally no point you made negates ANY of the points I made…you’re basically saying you don’t care for my opinion. Thus, this conversation has been totally unproductive.

            You’re absolutely right when it pertains to how “everybody rides the black culture wave” and “cosign” comments rather than seeing two human beings working together, musically. It was a pretentious and selfish comment. Be honest. Black culture rides a sh*t load of waves other than their own as well but we’re not out here making a big deal about it. Music is music. Period. Let them live.

          • ayohellno

            I’m unsure what you’re quoting as those weren’t my words. Read much? I’d love to see examples of Black artist riding the waves of other ‘races’ music & experiencing the same level of success. I’ll wait. Guarantee you for every artist you name I can name 5 others to counter. This isn’t new, although it may be to uninformed folk like you appear to be. Let’s not also overlook the limited genre’s you’ll even be able to use as examples as contemporary pop music typically consists of genre’s created by Black people. & funny enough, we’re still referring to two artist that BOTH do Black music foo. If you’re a fan of their music, gone head & be a fanboy. There’s nothing wrong with it…but you sound silly pretending like this collaboration ain’t forced as shit.

            Megan Trainor has a hot 100 #1. Gotti doesn’t. He’s using that fat bitch. Smart business.

            This is the music BUSINESS. Dumbass.

          • ayohellno

            LOL ok well i’m looking forward to seeing Yo Gotti’s career explode from this incredible business move.

          • Kris Kompute

            Yo Gotti been around since 2002. He was an underground trap rapper for the longest. The past 5 years he’s crossed over to the mainstream. Down in the DM was a top 20 record.

            I don’t understand how as a music fan why you Mfs hate on a nigga that makes business moves to get heard by more people. Combining brands is the name of the game.

            Name the universal top 5 rappers of all time. They all did the exact same thing.

          • ayohellno

            Man you were totally right. Yo Gotti’s career has exploded three fold since this collab! This was a great career move. The radio plays this song NON-STOP! Way to go Yo Gotti!

        • SMH

          Black culture ain’t the only wave out here. Don’t get ahead of yourselves.
