Top 100 Charts Level

NEW Billboard!! WK fallls?
Finally an official announcement by the magazine!
Basically, the differences are:
_ Now they will include ALL US Radio stations (around 250)
_ Streamings will count for the chart weekly, but only from Yahoo! Music & AOL Music
_ Downloads will have the same weight as airplay, just like it was in the 90's, before downloads started to count double
So, mathematically speaking lol
1,000 sales = 1,000,000 impressions = 50,000 streamings
The #1 Song+Video with the most streamings will have around 1M streamings between AOL & Yahoo, that will have the same weight as 20,000 sales or 20M impressions, in the end it really won't make much of a difference as this #1 Song+Video with the most streamings isn't very different from the most played/best selling one
Here's a scan of the Billboard mag where we can see the total streamings for both songs and videos on AOL on July 2007:
How will be Wk today?
