They're using the regular iTunes chart with fake popularity numbers. The real ones might just be down for good.

First radio and now iTunes. They're leaving us with nothing  :shakeno:

It's definitely being gutted this month. :dies:  Though we knew iTunes wouldn't last much longer.

The way streaming has ruined it all. :biblio:

 

Wonder if miss @simmnfierzig will still do the predictions without iTunes and radio data being so easily accessible?

Ain't that illegal? :skull: Their paying subscribers getting fake numbers they made up under the impression they're legit.

Not when sales were declining every year before streaming.

 

And I'm confused, I see Kworb's Popbars section updated rn?

Oh, the page entirely stopped updating altogether. Usually when Kworb's iTunes page would go periods without updating, you would notice cause it'd say like 40.8 hours since the last update on the time elapsed part.

I wonder why you say the popularity numbers are fake, because it seems normal to me?

Or is that because you just cannot fetch the popularity numbers from iTunes anymore?

Nah the real figures never have such a smooth curve. They're also way too different from what they were two days ago, especially outside the top 20.

I feel like Nielsen Soundcan will buy the rights to the numbers and privatise them soon :rip:

@Kworb

 

Any chance to do some estimates just based on the positions. Obviously they would be pretty rough, but it can't be worse than what I have to through together now :weeps:

Remember when we used iTunes popbars before kworb? Maybe we could go back to that. However, I think sales will continue to become so arbitrary it may not even be worth it anymore.
