The Billboard Hot 100 is the leading chart of songs in the United States, and in the music world. For a song to perform well on the Hot 100 it is necessary to have a good number in sales, streamings and a radio audience.
All this data from streaming, radio play and sales are added together to determine the score of each song in the ranking.
Below we explain how you can help the song perform well on the Billboard Hot 100.
Important: Only sales and streams from the United States are counted! If you are from another country, you can change your device’s IP and create a new account on some platform, selecting the United States as the country, but this is against the Billboard Hot 100 rules.
To detect the number of digital and physical sales, the company has the support of Nielsen Music, a specialist in audience metrics, which has a base that covers 90% of the music market in the United States.
Among the monitored commerce, there are department stores, stores specializing in music and digital stores, which compile both physical and digital sales, with the downloading of music and records.
The main platform for you to buy a digital copy of the song is iTunes. You can also buy from the official Katy Perry website, just click here.
For Hot 100, Billboard uses platform data such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and YouTube, as well as online radios, such as Pandora and Slacker Radio.
Each play of a music on a paid streams (Apple Music platform, for example) account as a full point.
Plataforms with free streams (Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube) are worth 2/3 of a point, while plays on programmed radios (Pandora and Slacker Radio, popular in the United States) count half a point.
