    I think the steaming era will bring a lot of urban/rap songs to #1. The streaming aspect favors those songs over pop.

    Its not like it’s impossible to stream those pop songs

    True. I guess it’s not really cool to like pop songs. It was OK with radio because you could just defend yourself since you can’t chose what the radio plays. With streaming the choice is yours, so if you’re caught listening to Katy Perry, people know it’s because you wanted to.

    Though that hasn’t stopped Taylor Swift and she isn’t particularly cool.

    True, but go look at the streaming charts for Spotify and Apple Music. More people stream Urban/HipHop than any other type of music and streaming is what billboard values over AirPlay and Sales. You too the streaming charts chances you’ll top the 100.

    Nielson Report already reached this conclusion, which many people here refuse to acknowledge out of bias, is that urban music is mainly popular in streaming platforms whereas other genres like Pop and Rock find more success in sales:

    “While Rock still dominates album sales, with over 40% share of the
    industry’s albums, its share of streaming is only 16%. Country, also a
    strong 12% in albums and nearly 14% in physical albums, continues to
    lag in streaming share with just 5.6% of total streaming coming from
    the genre. The Latin genre continues to be very strong in streaming,
    particularly video streaming where it makes up 15% of the total. Pop continues to get a disproportionately high share of digital track sales, with the consumer clearly still having a desire to own the big pop hits.”

    Source: http://www.nielsen.com/content/dam/corporate/us/en/reports-downloads/2017-reports/music-us-mid-year-report-2017.pdf

    It just comes down to consumer’s behavior: pop/rock listeners prefer purchasing music whereas urban listeners prefer to stream instead.

    The reason why Billboard chart system is unbalanced is because sales count as one transaction only (no matter how many times you listen to the song on your device after purchasing it, only the purchase will count), whereas when streaming your favorite song, the more you listen to it on your device, the more it will count towards billboard chart score. That way, it gives an unlimited advantage to urban listeners to keep boosting their favorite music on the charts.

    Never heard “Rockstar” before. Guess I’ll get to that soon, or not.

    I just realised this could be the first year Max Martin won’t have a #1 single on Billboard Hot 100 since 2008.

    Article about streaming count changes in 2018. I ,for one welcome this , free streaming shouldn’t count as much as paid.

    This is what happens when your song is all hype and no substance. Taylor can kiss goodbye to Grammy noms with LWYMMD. At least I Don’t Wanna Live Forever wasn’t that bad.
