The 10 Most Overplayed Songs Of 2014

December 25th, 2014 4:37pm EST
Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift's smash hit "Shake It Off" has only been playing on the radio for about a third of 2014 because of its August release, and it still saw enough airtime for us to say, "enough already!"

Sure, the song has a catchy beat and proves that Swift's crossover from country to pop music is nothing short of a success, but three-to-four times a day for months straight is enough to drive us mad!

Actuality, "Shake It Off" is one of two songs on this list that we really love, but it's time to slow down with the number of plays, radio stations across America!

The single, which topped the Bil...

Why Did A Ton Of Celebrities Lose Millions Of Followers?

December 19th, 2014 11:20am EST
Celebs Lose A Ton of Instagram Followers In Spam Purge
Kim Kardashian just beat out Justin Bieber as the hottest celeb on Instagram.

No, it's not due to another "break the internet" stunt, just some housecleaning by Instagram to get rid of inactive, fake and spam accounts.

The social media giant states that this will maintain "the best possible experience on Instagram" by ensuring that everyone following you is a real, live person.

After the sweep, Bieber lost nearly 15 percent of his followers, more than 3.5 million. On the upside, Kim Kardashian only lost 1.3 million followers with a grand total of 22 million to the Biebs 20 million.

J. Cole Debuts Big On Billboard 200

December 18th, 2014 10:21am EST
J. Cole Forest Hills Drive
For J. Cole, the number one spot is a familiar one. For the third time in his career, J. Cole sits atop the Billboard 200. This time, he earns the largest sales of his career as 2014 Forest Hills Drive sold a robust 354,000 copies. Translated to the Billboard 200’s new formula of ‘units’, J. Cole’s latest impacted 375,000. Even more remarkable about J. Cole’s numbers is the lack of a single to drive album sales – “Apparently” was issued upon the album’s release as a single. Initially, the album was forecasted to sell more than 300,000 copies.

So with the debut of J. Cole, Taylor Swif...

Taylor Swift Turns 25, Gets Serenaded By Aretha Franklin
It's been an amazing week for Taylor Swift. On Friday, the singer picked up Billboard's coveted "Woman of the Year" award for the second time on the eve of her 25th birthday.

Taylor Swift Still Tops On Billboard

December 11th, 2014 10:59am EST
Taylor Swift
The Billboard 200 may be completely revamped, but Taylor Swift’s constant stay atop the chart regardless of changes is unsurprising. After three consecutive weeks, a week in the runner-up slot, and last week’s return to the top, Swift now sits at five weeks at #1. Baller status – yep, definitely – she’s a playmaker. Overall, including overall “consumption” to quote the new chart language, Swift’s impact was 274,000. Again, only a portion of that were sales, specifically 230,000 copies. Regardless of technicalities, Swift rules.

But enough about Taylor, what about the newbies to th...

How Does She Do It? Taylor Swift, Suffering From Laryngitis, Per
Taylor Swift has everything going for her right now -- a successful crossover to pop music with her hit new album "1989," which has topped the Billboard charts for weeks, three Grammy nominations for her hit single "Shake It Off" (the album came out too late to qualify for any Grammies, but the single dropped within the eligibility time frame), and a stint as the main musical performer during this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show -- during which she looked better than half the models.

Taylor Swift Rules The ‘New’ Billboard 200

December 4th, 2014 12:11pm EST
Taylor Swift
Out with the old and in with the new. The Billboard 200 has changed its charting formula that doesn’t just solely include albums sales, but also streaming and digital tracks. It’s definitely a contrast, but also makes complete sense given the current music climate. The days where it just comes down to album sales and nothing more are simply done – look at albums sales in 2014 alone. Still, the good old Nielsen Soundscan tabulates the sales via the Top Album Sales Chart.

But enough technicalities – time to jump right into the Billboard 200 – new or old. The holder of the number one sp...

One Direction Score Fourth Number One Album With ‘Four’

One Direction Score Fourth Number One Album With ‘Four’: This We
'Tis the season where album sales are elevated and the music industry breathes a sigh of relief – until the deadness of January that is. While there have been few victory laps (besides Taylor Swift’s 1989), the numbers are stronger than earlier in 2014. That said, reliable chart-topper One Direction scored a fourth number one album with Four. Although 1D got it done, there is a ‘but’ to the scenario.

Four landed at a familiar spot for 1D, but did so in somewhat underwhelming fashion. Sure the 387,000 copies the British-Irish boy band moved is exceptional, but falls below both prognostic...

Taylor Swift Is Unstoppable On Billboard 200: This Week In Music
Face it folks, Taylor Swift is a juggernaut – the gift that keeps on giving generously to the music industry after a dismal sales year. Taylor Swift may not be the ‘second coming,’ but she’s definitely something. 1989 spends its third week atop the Billboard 200 Albums chart, selling a respectable 312,000 copies. If you’re keeping score, that means that Swift’s 1989 sits at two million copies sold in just three weeks.

Foo Fighters couldn’t beat Ms. Swift and didn’t even come that close. Foo Fighters sold soundly, moving 190,000 copies of Sonic Highways, good for a #2 bow. Pink Floyd...

How significant is 402,000 copies – well, as Keith Caulfield and Billboard tell it, 402,000 copies is the second largest sales week of the year. Taylor Swift, hence, is nothing short of a beast – in a good way of course. Forget about a platinum album – 1989 is well on its way to double platinum...
