If you have ever wondered how the music charts are determined – your answer is the Billboard Hot 100. They are the music industry standard record chart in the United States for singles. In other words, they are the chart that everyone refers to when they want to know who is the number one best-selling artist. There are three categories that the Billboard Hot 100 uses to calculate their rankings: radio play, online streaming, and sales. Whoever tops this chart must be pretty good, right?
Now, my avid readers, I am sure I already know what you are thinking – “These chart toppers must be awesome live! If only there were a way for me to see them”. Well friends, your prayers have been answered.
