Diamonds is still in there somewhere, too, obviously.
Oh God, freaking Grammys screwed over FOB.
Also as of this week: In the Soundscan era (91+), the first white artist to make multiple albums that spawned a multi-week solo #1 radio hit: Taylor Swift.
Trouble is also the first and so far only digital single that sold 300k for 3 weeks.
To those of you looking to go crazy with streaming for a certain song, if 40 streams is worth a download, since there are about 10000 minutes a week, if you had your computer non-stop running Youtube (keeping it wasting electricity going through the wee night during your sleep), refreshing a Youtube video once a minute, your views would be the equivalent of 250 downloads. Which certainly sounds good, but aside from the insanity and wastefulness, it wouldn’t make a huge difference when Thrift Shop has 10 mil views a week (1 thousand times your views), or Harlem Shake has 100 mil views a week (10 thousand times your views).
If you decided to be more rational and just played a song nonstop for an hour (but only a minute each time before refreshing), that would be the equivalent of 1.5 downloads. I think most people are more like me – even if I like a song a lot, I’m unlikely to actually listen to it even 40 times a week. When I see it from this perspective, it seems more reasonable. Let’s say Harlem didn’t exist. Then the #1 streamer would get around 230 points from that, and the #1 radio song would be getting 130-ish points from that. That seems sane.
So if Largo were to "sorely tempted to replay something reeeeaaally weird for like, four days on end, and see what happens," what would happen would be the equivalent of a hundred something downloads. Not a big chart changer.
