This isn’t exactly breaking news but we still found it worth sharing – International all-female pop group, The Wonder Girls, have finally found themselves listed on some Billboard metrics. No, they didn’t have a number single with “Be My Baby” or album with Wonder World, but rather, they have debuted at #33 on Billboard’s Social 50 Chart. Never heard of the chart? Here’s an explanation:
A ranking of the most active artists on the world’s leading social networking sites. Artists’ popularity is determined by a formula blending their weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views and weekly song plays, as measured by Next Big Sound.
It’s interesting to see Billboard continue to explore new ways to measure and quantify music consumption in an increasingly medium-diverse world. That being said, this is a notable milestone but I imagine it’s not quite the impact the ladies and JYP are willing to settle for. We’ll keep you updated along the way!
