iTunes/ Apple Music

Buying the album songs on iTunes is important & a quick way to rank on international music charts especially country-wise. Some guidelines:

  • Buy track separately.
    – 10 individually bought tracks = 1 Album Purchase → Hot100 Billboard Chart Entry
    – 10 individually bought tracks = 10 Units Sold → Hot200 Billboard Chart Entry
  • Do not gift songs on iTunes. Gifting does NOT contribute to charting.
  • Purchase on various iTunes accounts. Make sure these are linked to separate devices.
    1 device = 1 iTunes account
    1 song sale = 150 paid/free streams
  • Stream bought songs. Delete the songs from your library or your stream will not count. There should be a plus (+) sign next to your purchased song.
