Article milestones Date Process Result Listed Promoted Delisted Not listed Listed May 21, 2013 Promoted Current status: Good article This article is of interest to the following: (Rated GA-class, Mid-importance) R&B and Soul Music Wikipedia:WikiProject R&B and Soul Music Template:WikiProject R&B and Soul Music R&B and Soul Music articles. • • • • Reviewer: ( ) 18:36, 17 August 2012 (UTC) OK, sorry for the wait. Note I should mention that I did not write this article. I just did improvements per, as it was re-assessed a few months ago. 22:10, 20 August 2012 (UTC) • We have Done Replaced 2 dead links, removed German Year-end and TRL, as they could't be retrieved.
Lead [ ] • I've done some slight copyediting here, but it is still in need of some work. • What did critics have to say about the song? Did they like it, did they hate it? Xp Utorrent more. Done Included critical reaction • What about the music video? Done Added information on music video • Usher performed 'Yeah!' At the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2008 as a runway soundtrack. -->What relevance does this have to do the lead?
Especially over the two above things. Done Removed • I'll go over this again once it's expanded. Background and composition [ ] • I've also done some copyediting here, but also, there are some more work to be done: • In 2003 -->When in 2003?
Done The reference says in the 'fall' of 2003, so I included that • Although they had 'Burn', the first song produced for the album, as waiting list, Usher had to record a few more tracks. -->I assumed this meant they had chosen 'Burn' to be the lead single, but this is terribly written. It needs a rewrite. Done Improved • How could this section be called composition, but it talks nothing of? This really needs to be expanded upon.
Take as a good example. Comment The bottom paragraph makes a small notice of its composition, but I agree, I'm not sure why the original editor titled it composition. I'll see if I can expand it. Release [ ] • This is kind of repeating the same things. I suggest merging Background and release in one section, and having composition on its own. Comment The release talks about what happened after 'Yeah!' Was produced, the background is before, so I don't think they repeat.
I'd say merging composition and release would be a better idea, seeing how background has enough information anyway. • Where exactly is the February 3, 2004 date coming from earlier in the article? The only sourced date I'm seeing is January 27, 2004. Done Changed the date to January Reception [ ] • For a lead single, there should be so much more reception available than what is in the article.
This needs to be expanded upon further, as well. I'll go back to this when that's complete.
Done The original editor already included the major reviews. I've added in the LA Times review, but besides that there isn't any more notable ones. Chart performance [ ] • 'Yeah!'
Debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number fifty-three on January 13, 2004, prior to its physical release -->How does a song debut before it's release? If there's a radio addon date, it should be added into the article. Done It probably was due to radio play, but I think finding a radio addon at this point is almost impossible. I removed the 'prior to its physical release' part. • Seven weeks later, it peaked at number one on March 2, staying there for twelve consecutive weeks. -->On March 2, the song peaked atop the chart and stayed at that position for twelve consecutive weeks.
Done Changed • 'Yeah!' Became the most-played song in 2004, Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems placed the song on the top for getting 496,805 total plays, above Hoobastank's single 'The Reason' with 489,976 spins. Became the most played song in the United States in 2004, with Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems reporting the song getting a total of 496,805 plays. Done Changed • The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 11, 2006 for shipping one million copies. -->Shipments only refer to album releases. There's no way in 2006 that a physical single could ship a million units.
Done I interpreted it as shipping one million physical copies since its release, so in a period of 2 years. I think I made it more clear. • This focuses too much solely on the US, and then just mentioning international markets. It should be in the same for each country. Done I've expanded the second paragraph Music video [ ] • Don't see a reason why this is broken up into different sections; it could all easily fit into one. Comment This was suggested by the reviewer, who assessed the article the first time, per • The synopsis is way too short; it needs to be expanded. Done Expanded, and merged paragraphs so the section looks better • How about a screenshot?
Comment I checked iTunes, VEVO, Yahoo! Music videos, and other sites but no good. The only site I could find the video on was YouTube, but those were uploaded by users, so I'm not sure if they would be suitable. • I'll go over the prose of this section once the above is complete. References [ ] • I will look these over later. • On hold until September 3, two weeks from today, as I am going on vacation in a couple of days, and won't be online for about a week.
Verdict [ ] • I'm sorry for taking so long to get back to this. I do not feel confident in passing this article, as I don't feel like it's complete. For a number one single across the globe, there's gotta be more information to be added that isn't present in the article. • What I would suggest before nominating the article a second time is looking into more information about the song's production and how it came about, it's composition, critical reception and chart performance.
• The song topped the charts in Canada, Denmark, Netherlands, France, Germany, Ireland, Norway and the United Kingdom., for example, is unacceptable when there is a huge amount of detail for the US chart positions; it should be all the way around. See for an example of this. • I know that the song is almost 10 years old, but try Google Books and other types of resources; I'm sure you'll be able to find something. • Good luck to you! 03:31, 11 September 2012 (UTC) Requested move [ ].
