Cheapthrills' Top 100 Artists

Hello!

I am actually not starting this for 2 or 3 months, but I am posting this now because I was hoping to seek out some advice from fellow UKMixers regarding calculations for this.

I am going to base this off my personal charts to come up with my top 100 artists. So, some questions:

1. If it is something you do, how do you calculate points for a particular song in general?

2. For an artist chart, do you distinguish between whether an artist is featured or lead? For example, Dua Lipa is featured on "Scared to Be Lonely," but Martin Garrix is the lead artist - would you qualify her for full points? Some other examples:
a. Love the Way You Lie - Rihanna?
b. Monster - Nicki Minaj?
c. E.T. - Kanye West?

3, If a song debuts in one year, but peaks in another, to which year do you attribute that song?

Thanks for any advice, and I hope to see you all when I start this. :)

If it's a Top 20 chart, 20 points for #1, 19 points for #2, and so on.

For me, this has to do with how key the featured artist is to my enjoyment of the song. For all the examples listed, the featured artists play key roles (for me) so I'd give them full points.

To the year in which it accumulates the greater number of points. On the off chance that the points are spread out exactly evenly, then to the year in which I feel best represents my love for the song, if that makes any sense (for instance, "Drunk in Love" first hit #1 on my chart in 2013, but it got most of its plays within, and I have more memories of it from, 2014).

Looking forward to it.

Thanks, JSparks :D

I like your approach to featured artists. I guess I ask because there's a small handful of artists who have a lot of top tens because they are featured often rather than lead, so it feels like their position might be inflated.
