What even is pop music anymore? Considering rap has overtaken every other genre as the dominate popular music in the country, you could technically argue that it is pop music. And often enough it is! Pop music. Cardi B? Pop music! And you can pretty much attribute popular music to anything on a major label that's dominating the charts. I consider pop music anything that'll put me in a good mood.
Thanks to iTunes, YouTube, Guitar Hero, and the like, it's possible for long-forgotten music to be revived in a big way--even if it had disappeared from the airwaves for a reason. There's a lot to love about silly Internet memes and fads, and one reason is that they can dig up something old and make it cool again. Music is no exception: anything from a '70s rock anthem to a '90s one-hit wonder can be given new life if the YouTube or 4chan hordes get their hands on it. The complication is that, thanks to the rise of user-generated content, a song can suddenly become in-demand again without any kind of official marketing push like placement on a movie soundtrack, for example. And that's an interesting issue for the music industry: When a song from decades ago starts to hit the ears of a generation that might not have been exposed to it before thanks to a grainy video of a tone-deaf guy eviscerating it at an open mic night, does the record label with the rights to the song embrace it as free publicity or flag it as unauthorized content?
The Rolling Stone Top is a song chart that ranks popular songs from today's most popular artists. Songs are ranked by Song Units, a number that combines audio streams and song sales using a custom weighting system. The song chart does not include any passive listening, such as terrestrial or digital radio. The Rolling Stone Top Song chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.
