According to Chart Data, Billboard has introduced a new rule, effective immediately, where only 1 digital sale will be counted per customer per week for songs and albums. Bulk purchases of 2 or more will not count. Oh lawwwwd...LOL.
Now, for the girls whose fans know how to stream, this will not be a big deal, but for those STANbases, who have been saving money for 4 years so they can manipulate pure sales, they better start taking streaming classes.
No bundles, No bulk buying, Radio play still counts too much for chart placement...2022 will be tough for Hip Hop artists.
THOUGHTS ON THESE CHANGES?
Say Sumthin, Tap The Heart, and Share...Thanks.
