Something I noticed:
break up with your girlfriend, ME!, bad guy, Senorita, YNTCD and some others reached #1
Megatron peaked at #3. So did Truth Hurts
Can I just say I love this chart? So far…July 2, 2019 at 4:49 pm #1202960011This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 2, 2019 at 5:01 pm #1202960023
they’re really trying everything to keep themselves alive lol, it’s embarrassing honestlyJuly 2, 2019 at 5:39 pm #1202960067
How is Truth Hurts over Bad Guy? Just one of example of probably a lot.
They reported 19.8M streams for Lizzo and 24.1M for Billie while they sold around 24.5k and 23.9 respectively according to Kworb (Not 100% accurate but given the low sales climate valid) and Billie has like twice the radio numbers Lizzo has.
Unlesd the chart has similar rules to the UK charts I don’t see how it makes sense.
Also, having daily peaks is not it.Basically every new release will be #1 which makes the charts less exciting.
This chart might benefit songs with paid streaming (Apple Music) than non-paid. That would also explain why No Guidance and Rodeo are so high.July 2, 2019 at 5:54 pm #1202960082

How have multiple songs already been number 1 when the charts just came out? Songs like TUN, 7 Rings, Taki Taki and more have already peaked at number 1… can anyone explain how that works please?July 2, 2019 at 6:53 pm #1202960128This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 2, 2019 at 7:19 pm #1202960140

The chart peaks shown are actually the song’s daily peaks, hence Megatron having a #3 peak but debuting at #14.
There is a glitch on the chart though causing several errors, most notably it saying ASIB peaked at #15 and Better Now at #67.
I will still be using Billboard for actual chart positions (i.e. the #1 song is x), but this chart will be useful as it breaks down the number of units, streams and sales.July 3, 2019 at 1:21 am #1202960478
The biggest problem for me are daily peaks. That sucks.

Can we all agree that this chart is ass?July 3, 2019 at 8:42 am #1202960798
RollingStone’s chart methodology
(Pure album copies+Pure song copies [÷10]+Audio streams [Subscription÷1200/Ad-Supported÷3600]

To be fair, it does show what people *really* consume. Radio is a bussiness.July 3, 2019 at 9:48 am #1202960918
I seriously don’t get it. 3 streams on Youtube is the same as 1 stream on Apple Music. Just because you’re rich or prefer Apple Music doesn’t mean your stream should weigh more. Every stream from a US citizen should count the same. A stream is a stream! Charts are not totally correct because of this. I just don’t get it!
