Daily Numbers’ Thread – 01/31/17

Today’s thread is brought to you by the numbers 4 and 5.

Two X-factor artists climb into the top 5 on the Hot 100 this week with collaborations. Camila Cabello is from the US version of the show and her “Bad Things” rises to 4. Teaming with Taylor Swift, Zayn from the UK goes top 5 with “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. Turns out that it pays to leave the band early.

In other news, Pandora has been added to the Streaming statistics (that is why there is no percentage change). I remember learning about Pandora on this very site back in 2006. Billboard also re-balanced their formulas for the Hot 100 to increase the value of each sale and decrease the value of each stream.
