Will update when I can find the full article. So far this comes from Mint Royale's tweets.


Good move in my opinion, though I would have possibly changed it to 1:200.

Cant find any announcement in music week for this, but if true it will still be too little too late as thestreaming weighting will stil be 60% or so. That would help tracks that go top 20 on downloads stop being excluded from the 40 and add a few top 40 sales hits to the lower reaches of the 75, but its not going to solve the underlying streaming flaw: its not based on absolute popularity its based on fanbase loyalty, so big acts with big obsessive teen-appealing fanbases will continue to swamp the charts and spotify will continue to wield hitmaking power and the passive listening charts will still keep it slow and difficult to crack without big tv awareness.

The sales chart remains the fairest guide to appeal across the spectrum. If sales continue to decline, dont matter, cos proportionately there will still be more buyers of a Drake single than a Gaga single, for example.

Are you sure of this?

I imagine this won't change much though, except a few more sales hits scraping the top 40 which is good I guess - streaming will still have a huge chart influence.

Great news if true! Should mean the chart will become a little less stagnant and songs doing well mainly on sales have more a chance of going top 40/20 etc.

So if a song gets 10,000 streams it'll translate into ~67 sales rather than 100. So the streamining component of sales will decrease by ~30%. Quite a significant decrease!

In a way its great news, but I wish the ratio is a little bit higher, I have to agree with Tinasha, wish it was 1:200

But this also means that sales for a number 1 will just keep going down

I disagree with this, a stream can't suddenly become worth less - it should be a number that was fixed on revenue and I presumed the 100 was that.

This was my thinking too. It seems to be in relation to the fact streaming continues to grow as a market while download sales will continue to decrease, rather than the fact that 100 streams was supposed to equal revenue of 1 sale, from my understanding anyway.

He's a dance music producer, famous for his #1 hit Singin In The Rain, and for the #2 remix of Tequila by Terrorvision.

@MintRoyale Interesting that the change in streaming ratio has happened because the average value of a stream has fallen. And the charts are a bit dull.
