 / T-Swift dominates the Billboard Scorching 100

Taylor Swift launched her newest album “Dead nights” on the finish of October 2022 and for the week of November fifth, 2022 it held the entire Best 10 spots at the Billboard Scorching 100. This gave the impression reasonably spectacular however we concept it will make sense to visit the information and spot simply how spectacular. Fortunately, there’s a Python bundle to tug knowledge from the Billboard charts and the use of Domo’s Jupyter Pocket book integration we will be able to simply pull that knowledge into Domo (I will be able to notice that this paintings used to be my first time writing python code from scratch by myself and I’m reasonably proud that I finished this paintings with just a bit little bit of code overview/revision from my staff). For this research, we pulled the Billboard Scorching 100 songs by means of week again to 1982 so now we have 40 years of historical past. The Jupyter code for purchasing this information may also be discovered right here if you need to take a look at it your self.

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

Possibly one week is just too in need of a time frame to inspect and I additionally puzzled if this focus of Best 10 songs is a extra fashionable phenomenon of the streaming generation. The chart beneath presentations the selection of artists with a undeniable selection of Best 10 songs in a given 12 months (relatively than only one week). You’ll be able to see that it’s only lately that artists have had greater than 6 songs within the Best 10 throughout a given 12 months (the primary time being in 2018). Previous to that it used to be reasonably uncommon to have more than one songs within the Best 10 in twelve months.

You’ll be able to proceed to discover the 40 years of Billboard knowledge beneath the information will replace weekly) and use the variables to regulate which metric or levels to inspect. One closing attention-grabbing tidbit that stunned me a bit of when taking a look on the selection of distinctive songs at the Scorching 100, probably the most distinctive songs by means of an artist is going to the solid of Glee with 206 other songs showing at the Scorching 100. Granted you have to argue those are covers of different artists however I nonetheless discovered that to be reasonably a wonder. Have amusing exploring the information.
