 / T-Swift dominates the Billboard Sizzling 100














Taylor Swift launched her newest album “Nighttimes” on the finish of October 2022 and for the week of November fifth, 2022 it held the entire Most sensible 10 spots at the Billboard Sizzling 100. This gave the impression somewhat spectacular however we concept it could make sense to visit the information and spot simply how spectacular. Happily, there’s a Python package deal to tug information from the Billboard charts and the usage of Domo’s Jupyter Pocket book integration we will simply pull that information into Domo (I will be able to word that this paintings was once my first time writing python code from scratch alone and I’m somewhat proud that I finished this paintings with just a bit little bit of code evaluation/revision from my staff). For this research, we pulled the Billboard Sizzling 100 songs via week again to 1982 so we now have 40 years of historical past. The Jupyter code for purchasing this information may also be discovered right here if you wish to have to take a look at it your self.

Let’s get to that information. No longer unusually, that is the primary time a unmarried artist had all Most sensible 10 songs for a unmarried week as we will see within the beneath chart. Drake got here shut in September 2021 with 9 of the Most sensible 10 songs and seven for one week in July 2018. Curiously, if I modify the research to take a look at the Most sensible 20, each Taylor Swift and Drake had one week with 14 songs within the Most sensible 20 (shout out to the brand new Domo variables function which permits for this fast adjustment within the charts beneath) .

Perhaps one week is simply too wanting a time frame to inspect and I additionally puzzled if this focus of Most sensible 10 songs is a extra trendy phenomenon of the streaming generation. The chart beneath displays the selection of artists with a undeniable selection of Most sensible 10 songs in a given yr (somewhat than only one week). You’ll be able to see that it is just lately that artists have had greater than 6 songs within the Most sensible 10 throughout a given yr (the primary time being in 2018). Previous to that it was once somewhat uncommon to have a couple of songs within the Most sensible 10 in 12 months.

You’ll be able to proceed to discover the 40 years of Billboard information beneath the information will replace weekly) and use the variables to regulate which metric or levels to inspect. One remaining fascinating tidbit that stunned me somewhat when taking a look on the selection of distinctive songs at the Sizzling 100, probably the most distinctive songs via an artist is going to the solid of Glee with 206 other songs showing at the Sizzling 100. Granted you must argue those are covers of alternative artists however I nonetheless discovered that to be somewhat a marvel. Have a laugh exploring the information.
