Streaming World: Back To 2000

2000 TOP 100 HITS – #8

Eminem feat. Dido – Stan – 88 726 000

Time and streaming both still made justice to this track.

Hence why its streaming count is so low. I don’t think… Read more »


One more very interesting article. Thank you for making our undertsanding of charts better!

She’s also one of the lucky acts who benefit from being successful in 3 different eras (peak of album sales, peak of digital sales, and streaming), so her CSPC results should be interesting! And unfortunately, as it happens with most of the big selling acts, there’s always been confusion regarding how much she… Read more »
