Los Angeles – Media measurement firm BigChampagne has
introduced the Ultimate Chart — a weekly list of top songs and artists based
on data from traditional metrics, like sales and broadcast radio play, and
newer indicators like Internet video and radio streams. The Ultimate Chart
generates an artist’s score based on sales; broadcast; watching and listening;
and fans, friends and followers. The data is pulled from services including
iTunes, YouTube, Vevo, Clear Channel, Facebook, Rhapsody, Napster and Pandora.
