The Line Between A Bop And A Flop

The Line Between A Bop And A Flop

  1. 1. How high must a song chart to be considered a hit and not a flop?

I know that what's considered a flop differs for each artist. (E.G. a brand new artist peaking at #19 is seen as a success whereas an establish artist with multiple Top 10's would be seen as a flop if their newest song only peaked at #19).

However, I want to know in general, at what point does a song become a "hit" and safely out of "flop" territory. Like are songs only considered a success if they hit the top 10? Or is every song in the Top 40 a hit? Or is every song in the BB100 a hit and all non-charting songs are flops? Like where's the line? 

Basically, for the poll, choose spot on the BB100 that draws the line between "bop" and "flop"

To me Top 20. (maybe top 30)

Top 20 for a good period of time is a hit.

Out of Top 40 is a miss. I wouldn't call it a complete flop though.

I think a song that truly flopped is when that is out of Top 40 AND people don't even know about it. Swish Swish didn't make it at the US Top 40 but there are "members" of the GP that still know about it.
