Elite 100 Artists Week Ending 8/25/16
Drake finally drops from the No. 1 spot, giving way to Frank Ocean whose highly anticipated LP just dropped. The Elite 100’s Canadian data comes in to play with The Tragically Hip hitting No. 4 during its farewell tour.
Pollstar has expanded its BuzzAngle Music-powered Elite 50 Artists chart to Elite 100, giving our subscribers a snapshot of the week’s top-selling artists based on music sales and streaming. The chart now also incorporates Canadian data.
All product, not just current releases, by that artist are included in the figures and the total for ranking purposes is based on an album sale equaling 1, 10 song sales equal 1 album, and 1,500 on-demand streams equal 1 album.
BuzzAngle Music, which is owned by NYC-based Border City Media, was built on a new, state-of-the-art software platform that provides a real-time data stream and more than 200,000 ways to easily filter or customize the data.
