Billboard having trouble with new re-calibrated charts

THE WEIGHTING IS THE HARDEST PART: MATH ANXIETY EDITION

Billboard's previously announced new weighted consumption chart, which was expected to launch earlier this year, seems to be stuck in limbo as terms regarding how ad-supported audio streams will be counted are still being negotiated. Label sources say Spotify was unhappy with the initially proposed 5000:1 stream-to-album ratio. The bible then countered with a 3750:1 proposal that was also met with disdain. It's been rumored that Spotify has threatened to withdraw from reporting to SoundScan should they remain unhappy with any final decision. Stay tuned for more updates on this weighty matter.
