    Love it, it was getting out of hand. Hopefully charting will be a little more genuine now, specially first week numbers.

    Thanks to those fishy bundles..

    Say So (remix) went number one, then left

    Stuck with u went number one, then left the top 10

    TROLLZ went number one, then plummeted to number 34, then nobody even knows where is it.

    finally Billboard does something right. Revoke all of them while they’re at it.

    It’s over for the pop girlies+Nicki, chile. Taylor and Ariana will be fine even though they participate in the scammery too.

    I like this, but there still might be some loop holes (which will probably be addressed).

    Merch Bundles can still be sold… The album just has to be labeled as an “add-on” but these rules don’t mention that the add-on album can’t be discounted significantly (Add a digital download copy of the album to your fan hoodie purchase for $2 for example). Why wouldn’t a fan do that?

    I do appreciate the rule change of not allowing physical album purchases to be counted (via free digital download) towards the charts before the shipments of the albums take place. I have been waiting 3 months for a vinyl album I purchased as a “merch bundle” that counted towards an artist’s first week sales. That isn’t fair or right. That artist shouldn’t have had my sale counted until I received my vinyl.

    Also, maybe artists will now just charge more for merch bundles in order to account for shipping costs to get things like physical CDs, vinyls, tapes released to fans the first week of the album’s release? IDK… I have a feeling that labels will try to maneuver through these new rules.

    Good. The chart manipulation was getting out of hand. Trollz was the final straw, literally the worst #1 ever

    Can just have number ones with stable streaming, sales and radio without some type of manipulation? Like honestly I could give a shit who goes number one, bitch sell your t-shirts and merch or whatever, but it’s telling you need to go so low for bundles that you can’t keep up with pop trends or bring something new to the table. Right.

    If you are in the US, vote! It’s important if live in the following swing states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

    I’m very pleased with this decision. Talk about leveling the playing field. Well done, Billboard.

    I legit feel this is mostly triggered by Trollz. They cared less when more respectable artists abused the system but now they were like hold up, let us change this quikcly.

    I mean

    #45(-11) – Stuck With U (9 weeks)

    #53(-15) – The Scotts (11 weeks)

    #83(-29) – Trollz (4 weeks)

    Something had to be done because those chart runs are beyond pathetic. All of these songs should be top 10 or at least top 20💀

    Five number debuts this year alone almost killed the prestige of the charts. Trollz became annoying because of the debut.

    While at it, they should stop counting radio plays too. Let the real consumers of music decide

    FYC:

    Chromatica: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album.

    Rain On Me: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video.

    Alice: Best Pop Solo Performance
