Billboard Announces New Chart Rules: No More Merch & Ticket Bundles… THANKS To 6ix9ine

BillBoard is changing the principles to its Billboard 200, Hot 100 and other collection and melody graphs. The declaration arrives with an end goal to amend how deals are checked concerning collection groups with product and show passes, just as moment advanced deals joined to buys for physical collections conveyed sometime in the not too distant future.

On the issue of packaging, the most recent standard changes supplant various others that were recently established in January. Those incorporated a necessity that collections packaged with stock be accessible for buy simultaneously and separately on a similar site, just as a prerequisite that product sold all alone be estimated lower than groups that incorporated the collection. Moreover, stock/collection groups must be sold on a craftsman’s legitimate direct-to-customer web store and not by means of outsider locales.

Presently, Billboard – in an affirmation that those measures have missed the mark regarding the planned objective of precisely reflecting purchaser expectation – has chosen to take out the act of tallying collections packaged with product and show passes on its collection and melody outlines through and through.

Rapper Tekashi 69, aka 6ix9ine, is back in the news again — this time for accusing Billboard of “manipulating” the charts to favor certain artists. He posted a two-minute rant on Instagram making the claim.
Tekashi previously addressed this issue in a now-deleted Instagram post, writing, “I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early [I’m] just making it clear that the world is watching.”
