idk to me radio play having such weighting has always seemed weird because listeners by and large don't get much say at all in what gets played. They just play what's popular and whatever record labels have paid them to saturate the airwaves with (the so-called 'radio deals', which are just legal payola but don't tell stans that!). I distinctly recall a number of ONTDers who recounted working at radio stations saying calling in to request a song actually doesn't count for shit in what they actually play.

What I really want to see is someone brave enough to start putting out a chart that excludes website sales lol

The same goes for streamings, I'd say.
Normani was conveniently not on Spotify's Today Top Hits playlist (which has 29m listeners, so a lot more exposure) despite the fact that her song was one of the most streamed songs this weekend. But Justin was there the minute he came out with his new song of course.
People made fun of 6ix9ine but he wasn't far off when he said that Scooter Braun was sketchy.

How do they even work that shit out re the playlisting? Dua Lipa's shit stays on TTH for like, a year, which is just ridiculous.

It's at least *slightly* more democratic ig in that you can skip songs and make your own playlists whereas radio doesn't care if you don't like it, if their label has paid for a deal it's getting played.

I'm wondering that too. Spotify's Twitter page always asks which song people want on that playlist, but I don't buy for one second that record companies don't pay for a spot on it.

#22 on the alternative songs chart on Billboard. Rolling Stone does not have genre charts yet.
