Taylor Swift launched her newest album “Midnights” on the finish of October 2022 and for the week of November fifth, 2022 it held the entire Prime 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100. This appeared fairly spectacular however we thought it could make sense to go to the information and see simply how spectacular. Fortunately, there’s a Python package to pull data from the Billboard charts and utilizing Domo’s Jupyter Notebook integration we are able to simply pull that knowledge into Domo (I’ll be aware that this work was my first time writing python code from scratch by myself and I’m fairly proud that I accomplished this work with just a bit little bit of code overview/revision from my staff). For this evaluation, we pulled the Billboard Sizzling 100 songs by week again to 1982 so we’ve got 40 years of historical past. The Jupyter code for getting this knowledge may be discovered here if you wish to strive it your self.

Let’s get to that knowledge. 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 beneath chart. Drake got here shut in September 2021 with 9 of the Prime 10 songs and seven for one week in July 2018. Curiously, if I modify the evaluation to take 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 feature which permits for this fast adjustment within the charts beneath) .

Possibly one week is just too in need of a timeframe to look at and I additionally questioned if this focus of Prime 10 songs is a extra fashionable phenomenon of the streaming period. The chart beneath reveals the variety of artists with a sure variety of Prime 10 songs in a given yr (fairly than only one week). You may see that it’s only lately that artists have had greater than 6 songs within the Prime 10 throughout a given yr (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 yr.

You may proceed to discover the 40 years of Billboard knowledge beneath the information will replace weekly) and use the variables to regulate which metric or ranges to look at. One final attention-grabbing tidbit that shocked me a bit when wanting on the variety of distinctive songs on the Sizzling 100, probably the most distinctive songs by an artist goes to the solid of Glee with 206 completely different songs showing on the Sizzling 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 information.
