Billboard Changes Country Chart Rules – Everyone But Swift Screwed!
14 October 2012 3 Comments
Today Billboard announced that it would be changing the rules regarding placement on their Country charts. Instead of just taking into consideration radio play (which it now counts all stations for placement, not just country…), it is now counting digital sales and hits off of Spotify. Because of this sudden change, Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never’, which is undeniably pop, is now #1, with her unreleased-to-radio single ‘Red’ following behind it. Won’t Swift ALWAYS be #1 now? What does that mean for Gloriana, Lady A, TBP? I don’t exactly know. Whether or not I continue to feature BB on my site is another question. This does not change Mediabase. What do you think about this? Read the full story.
