, T-Swift dominates the Billboard Scorching 100
Taylor Swift launched her newest album “Midnights” on the finish of October 2022 and for the week of November fifth, 2022 it held all the Prime 10 spots on the Billboard Scorching 100, This appeared fairly spectacular however we thought it will make sense to go to the info and see simply how spectacular. Thankfully, there’s a Python package deal to drag information from the Billboard charts and utilizing Domo’s Jupyter Pocket book integration we are able to simply pull that information into Domo (I’ll word that this work was my first time writing python code from scratch alone and I’m fairly proud that I accomplished this work with just a bit little bit of code overview/revision from my crew ). For this evaluation, we pulled the Billboard Scorching 100 songs by week again to 1982 so we’ve got 40 years of historical past. The Jupyter code for getting this information could be discovered right here if you wish to strive it your self.
Let’s get to that information. Not surprisingly, that is the primary time a single artist had all Prime 10 songs for a single week as we are able to see within the chart under. Drake got here shut in September 2021 with 9 of the Prime 10 songs and seven for one week in July 2018. Apparently, if I alter the evaluation to have a look at the Prime 20, each Taylor Swift and Drake had one week with 14 songs within the Prime. 20 (shout out to the brand new Domo variables characteristic which permits for this fast adjustment within the charts under).
Perhaps one week is simply too in need of a timeframe to look at and I additionally questioned if this focus of Prime 10 songs is a extra trendy phenomenon of the streaming period. The chart under reveals the variety of artists with a sure variety of Prime 10 songs in a given 12 months (relatively than only one week). You may see that it is just in recent times that artists have had greater than 6 songs within the Prime 10 throughout a given 12 months (the primary time being in 2018). Previous to that it was fairly uncommon to have a number of songs within the Prime 10 in a single 12 months.
You may proceed to discover the 40 years of Billboard information under (the info will replace weekly) and use the variables to regulate which metric or ranges to look at. One final fascinating tidbit that shocked me a bit when wanting on the variety of distinctive songs on the Scorching 100, essentially the most distinctive songs by an artist goes to the solid of Glee with 206 totally different songs showing on the Scorching 100. Granted you can argue these are covers of different artists however I nonetheless discovered that to be fairly a shock. Have enjoyable exploring the info.
