Billboard’s charts have expanded to the Philippines. Billboard Philippines (“BillboardPH”) recently premiered (June 12) the country’s first rankings reflecting local music consumption.

Using localized on-demand streaming data from global services Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube, plus download track sales from iTunes, BillboardPH’s new charts provide the most accurate representation of music popularity in the Philippines.

Leading BillboardPH’s chart offerings is the BillboardPH Hot 100, which ranks the top songs by both local and foreign acts. The Billboard Philippine Top 20, meanwhile, will contain only Filipino artists, and the Billboard PH Catalog Chart will list songs by Filipino acts that are older than three years, but still being actively streamed.

Ed Sheeran commands the No. 1 spot on the BillboardPH Hot 100 with “Shape of You,” while Bruno Mars and The Chainsmokers each place a pair of tracks each in the top 10.  Also occupying spaces in the Hot 100 top 10 are DJ Khaled‘s “I’m the One,” featuring Justin BieberQuavoChance the Rapper & Lil Wayne, at No. 3, and the current Billboard Hot 100 U.S. No. 1 hit “Despacito,” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, at No. 5.

The Billboard Philippine 20 is led by Inigo Pascual’s “Dahil Sa’Yo,” with singer/actress Jona holding down two spots in the top 10, at Nos. 3 and 4, with “Pusong Ligaw” and “Maghihintay Ako,” respectively. Also faring well on the local list is rock/fusion band Sud, which stands at No. 2 with “Sila.”

Billboard PH, launched in September 2016, has quickly become the premier source of music coverage in Philippines. The addition of local charts to a menu already including the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200, among others, further emphasizes the site as the go-to place for Filipino music fans.  The Billboard PH charts refresh each Monday morning local time.

According to Dee Jay, “‘#Boompamplot’ is about giving someone’s love and returning the love back”, the song was very catchy indeed and another smashing hit single under her belt.  The main purpose of the collaboration is to bring independent artists to be heard, honing talents, mentoring and how to stay in the music industry.  Some of the indie artists and friends were present that night including Ed Serran (R&B Sensation),  the Duo Manny Paksiw and Blanktape, Travis Kraft (YouTube Superstar), and Imabelle Kraft (Publicist). In addition, the collaboration will continue until 2017 bringing the Original Pilipino Music and Blogtalk with MJ Racadio Live Tour and you will never know you will be part of the center stage.
