Before I start writing about Number Ones again, a quick bit of stattery around the current state of the charts. This is an extremely wonkish post, so reader beware.

The official Top 100 Streaming chart was launched 30 weeks ago. Let’s see what’s up with it.

Of the 100 songs in the streaming chart.

44 have been in it for 30 weeks (i.e. since the first ever chart)
38 have been in it between 10 and 29 weeks.
18 have been in it for fewer than 9 weeks.

Compare this to the official chart – which incorporates the streaming chart, of course.

33 in it for 30+ weeks
36 in it between 10 and 29 weeks.
31 in it for fewer than 9 weeks.
