Pop Music Chart Day is celebrated at the very beginning of the year – January 4th. This is the best period to give people who cannot imagine life without their favorite tracks to dream, be inspired and make plans! If you often listen to radio or watch music shows, then you have seen the rating compiled from hits more than once, but where did it come from?
In 1955, the US music industry magazine Billboard published a list of XNUMX hit songs that week. The audience liked the idea so much that it flooded the media! By the way, the magazine functions to this day, has two hit parades – the best-selling singles and albums.
The first issue of the Billboard 200 was released in 1991. It was founded using data collected by the Nielsen analytics company. The research system monitored music sales data. It is still active today, receiving data from music venues around the world. If earlier there could be inaccuracies due to the generalization of data, today you can safely trust real charts. It is noteworthy that this format has not taken root in any industry as it was based in the music industry!
Records in music charts:
- Elvis Presley held the first line of the hit parade for 79 weeks;
- 7 different songs in a row performed by Whitney Houston took the winning places;
- Adele’s album “21” entered the music charts for 7 years after the release;
- Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote a record number of charting songs – 32 and 26 tracks respectively.
