Billboard Expanding Streaming Charts
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.11.2013



Billboard reports that two months after it created the Streaming Songs chart, which takes data from several streaming services for one ranking, it will debut genre-specific charts with the same methods. These genres include country, R&B/hip-hop, rap, R&B, rock, Latin and dance/electronic.

The genres will have 25 positions and will appear weekly on both Billboard.com (with 15 positions shown) and billboard.com/biz (in full). The data from the chart and new genre rankings combines with download sales and radio airplay to reveal the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Country Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Rap Songs, R&B Songs, Hot Rock Songs, Hot Latin Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts. Services measured by Nielsen Entertainment and contributing to the charts include YouTube (including Vevo on YouTube), Spotify, Muve Music, Slacker, Rhapsody, Rdio, MySpace, Xbox Music and Guvera. Rankings are based on plays. On-demand and tethered plays count double against non-interactive radio streaming plays.

Leaders on the new charts this week include Darius Rucker's "Wagon Wheel" (Country Streaming), Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (ft. Wanz)' "Thrift Shop" (R&B/Hip-Hop and Rap), Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z's "Suit & Tie" (R&B), Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" (Rock), Shakira's "Waka Waka (Esto Es Africa)" (Latin) and Baauer's "Harlem Shake" (Dance/Electronic).

This continues Billboard's changes to chart streaming activity after the creation of the On-Demand songs chart last year.
