T-swift dominates the Billboard Scorching 100

 / 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 the entire High 10 spots on the Billboard Scorching 100. This appeared fairly spectacular however we thought it might make sense to go to the information and see simply how spectacular. Fortunately, there’s a Python bundle to tug 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 notice 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 staff). For this evaluation, we pulled the Billboard Scorching 100 songs by week again to 1982 so we now have 40 years of historical past. The Jupyter code for getting this information might be discovered right here if you wish to attempt it your self.

Let’s get to that information. Not surprisingly, that is the primary time a single artist had all High 10 songs for a single week as we are able to see within the under chart. Drake got here shut in September 2021 with 9 of the High 10 songs and seven for one week in July 2018. Curiously, if I alter the evaluation to take a look at the High 20, each Taylor Swift and Drake had one week with 14 songs within the High 20 (shout out to the brand new Domo variables function which permits for this fast adjustment within the charts under) .

Possibly one week is just too in need of a timeframe to look at and I additionally questioned if this focus of High 10 songs is a extra fashionable phenomenon of the streaming period. The chart under exhibits the variety of artists with a sure variety of High 10 songs in a given 12 months (quite than only one week). You possibly can see that it’s only in recent times that artists have had greater than 6 songs within the High 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 High 10 in a single 12 months.

You possibly can proceed to discover the 40 years of Billboard information under the information 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 trying on the variety of distinctive songs on the Scorching 100, probably the most distinctive songs by an artist goes to the solid of Glee with 206 completely different songs showing on the Scorching 100. Granted you may argue these are covers of different artists however I nonetheless discovered that to be fairly a shock. Have enjoyable exploring the information.
