Meanwhile, YouTube will probably end up reporting video streams (though not views of user-generated content) to the album chart, weighted in a way that’s comparable to Spotify’s ad-supported tier. Many in the industry are concerned that Lyor will jack the algo to juke his cronies’ chart stats, but there’s also considerable scuttlebutt that he’s probably out. In any event, many wonder how Team Bible continues to get manipulated so easily. Meanwhile, meetings are ongoing between rights holders, the Bible and Nielsen to come up with rules for making the sausage, which Nielsen has thus far been unwilling to explain (or perhaps they’re contractually unable to be forthcoming).

It’d literally make almost no difference. 

10 million YouTube views would only count as 3K sales with 1:3750 weighing. Even 30 million views in a week (4 million+ per day) would only be 8K sales.
 
Majority of the #1 songs on YouTube US don’t get 30 million in a week.

Then artists should upload the individual tracks on YouTube.

 

Poor pure sales. Gonna be more dead than ever.
