Billboard Vietnam debuts its own charts

Billboard Vietnam plans to debut its two flagship charts, Billboard Vietnam Hot 100 and Billboard Vietnam Top Vietnamese Songs, on January 14.

The charts will showcase the popularity of local artists and the reach of global artists in Vietnam. The Billboard Vietnam Hot 100 encompasses all music genres, while the Billboard Vietnam Top Vietnamese Songs ranks the most popular Vietnamese songs specifically.

Both charts rank the most popular songs in the country based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading audio and video music services in Vietnam, plus download sales from top music retailers, provided by MRC Data.

“Music Charts are one of the most important validations that artists can receive from fan,s” Billboard Vietnam CEO Myke Brown said in a press statement. “We are excited that Vietnamese music culture can unite and shine with artists around the world under a standardised metric for our music industry”./.
