Billboard Dance has become one of the biggest media outlets to shine a light on our favorite electronic artists, as well as one of Billboard’s most promising new subsections since its inception in 2015. Branching into a new venture, Billboard has announced its new inaugural Dance 100 chart, a data-driven ranking of dance music’s hottest artists. The Billboard Dance 100 will be compiled by both Billboard‘s editorial and chart departments, weighing chart statistics (streaming, track sales, album sales and radio airplay), touring data (show capacities, festival bookings and residencies) and fan-voted polling. The list will give a thorough and comprehensive look into the statistical and fan driven analysis that have forged some of the biggest names in dance music.
“The Billboard Dance 100 fills the need for a holistic, data-driven ranking of dance music’s diverse range of talents. From pop hit makers and club curators to hard ticket-movers, all successful artist models will find a home here.” – Matt Medved, Billboard’s Director of Dance and Electronic Programming.
The official Hot 100 will be revealed March 21-22 during Miami Music Week 2018 and just in time for the March edition to hit the shelves. Voting ends March 16th so start picking your top 5 favorites!
