Pretty much any pop song including Ed Sheeran, Bruno, Chainsmokers, Justin Bieber's among artists in that top 10. Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Ariana Grade, etc. I prefer those artists to mumble rap crap like Future and Lil Uzi Vert too, but if more people are listening to them in private than pop, they deserve to chart higher than mall friendly songs

The thing is the way they implemented streaming is stupid. 150 streams equal one paid unit and 10 paid units equal one album sale. But it's really disproportionate how "valuable" streams actually are.

"The Trichordist has also calculated the number of streams needed on the various services to equal a traditional sale: 139 streams on Spotify, 83 on Apple Music, 90 on Google Play, 95 on Deezer and, ahem, 876 on YouTube."

http://musically.com/2017/01/17/new-fig ... -and-more/

Youtube probably gives the most streams for the songs on the charts yet it's by far the least valuable and BB just does not account for that. Also there's not a rule for how long a stream needs to last to count. That's left to streaming sites themselves and they go as low as 30 sec to count a stream which is bullshit. So 150 people who just checked the song for 30 sec and decided they didn't like it still counts as a sale.

Though "Something Just Like This" is also shit. The only really good songs in the top 10 are That's What I Like, Stay (SOOOOO overplayed) and Shape of You (though it's overplayed). I'm The One, Despacito (not worthy of being #1 so long)are good but not great.

In terms of popular music, this year seems to belong to the "mumble rappers." Lil Uzi Vert, Future, Lil Yachty, Migos, Rae Sremmurd. Whether you dig them or hate them, and what they mean in relation to hip-hop conceptions of credibility and masculinity, seems to be the big pop dividing line right now.

Boring rankings, though yay for new peaks for Believer and Attention.

Is "Despacito" near any record for most weeks at #1 or any other records besides YouTube?

It's at 13 weeks and I believe Mariah's record is 15.

Shape of You is on its way out. What is the record for weeks in the top 10?

At least there's no crappy rap songs in the top 10.

One of the big fall albums will debut a single at #1 sometime this month. Despicito will probably be in top ten till the end of the year though.

What About Us has been #1 at iTunes since Thursday. Could it unseat Despacito?

DJ Khaled and Rihanna Wild Thoughts is a serious threat to stop Despacito from breaking the record

Now Bieber is releasing a new single on 8/18. Despacito is gonna have to earn it!

Who listens to trash like this Bodak Yellow song?

The Itunes list is so much better than this horrible list.

God the American music scene is a shithole. Why can't Strip That Down, Slow Hands, Feels, Praying or What About Us be in the top 10 instead of the same songs from 4 months ago or new crappy rap songs that pop up for a few weeks and tumble down the charts?
