UK album chart follows singles

The UK’s official Charts Company has announced that from March the album charts will include track streaming data using a similar methodology as that used in the UK singles chart since July 2014. Music streaming in the UK doubled in 2014 with 14.8 billion individual tracks streamed.

“It won’t make a significant impact initially,” said UK Official Chart Company boss Martin Talbot, adding streams would account for “an uplift of about 10% in the Top 40”.  Instead, the move is intended to future-proof the chart “so it’s ready to reflect changing consumption habits”, he added.

Initially, the streaming data from the following sites/providers will be included in compiling the album chart  data: Deezer, Google Play, Napster, O2 Tracks (Musicqubed), Rara, Rdio, Spotify, Xbox Music.

Interestingly, YouTube is not included in this  initial list.
