    Billboard now including streams from "Boomplay"

    Note: Effective with the Oct. 30-dated Billboard charts, streams from Boomplay is added to the data that informs the Hot 100, Billboard 200, Artist 100 and Billboard Global 200, as well as other Billboard U.S. and global surveys that include streaming data. The plays represent audio streams from Boomplay's subscription tier and logged-in streams from its ad-supported tier, with streams from each tier weighted differently.

        Neither had I. It's a Nigerian-founded - and seemingly very African-music-orientated - streaming and download site founded in 2015: Boomplay Music - Wikipedia. Presumably this reflects a rise of interest in the wider US market (and in the UK's) in what's being labelled the 'Afrobeats' genre.

            Given that sales numbers are almost useless, I'm surprised anyone feels the needs to still set parameters...
