All Nielsen Music year end stats cover a 53 week period, per the article on the previous page.

Buzzangle used 52 weeks, cutting off December 27.
The OCC for the UK year end also cut off December 27.

30% of All U.S. Music Streams in 2018 Were R&B/Hip-Hop, With Drake the Most-Streamed Artist of Year
1/10/2019 by Keith Caulfield

Drake is first artist to earn 10 billion streams in a year, while total on-demand streams totaled 901 billion in 2018 — up 43 percent.
Drake was the king of streaming in 2018, as he finished the year as the most-streamed artist in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. The superstar collected 11.13 billion on-demand streams for his catalog of songs (in both audio and video streams) -- a yearly record for an artist, surpassing his own record of 6.4 billion in 2017.

Drake is also the first act to earn 10 billion streams for his songs in a calendar year.

Drake’s streaming haul represented 1.2 percent of total streams across all artists in all genres. In total, 901 billion on-demand streams were registered in 2018 -- up 42.6 percent over 2017.

Drake’s streams were fueled greatly by the success of his album Scorpion, which generated 4.57 billion on-demand audio streams -- the most-streamed album of 2018. (Meanwhile, the set’s songs collected another 1.76 billion in on-demand video streams.)

R&B/HIP-HOP DOMINATES STREAMING: The combined genre of R&B/hip-hop continues to be the heaviest hitter on streaming services, with the genre accounting for 30 percent of all on-demand streams in 2018 (267.4 billion clicks of the 901 billion total).

The second-largest genre in 2018 streaming was rock music, with a 14.2 percent share of the market (127.5 billion streams).

Overall on-demand audio streams vaulted 49 percent to 611 billion, while on-demand video streams surged 30 percent to 290 billion.

RAP RULES AMONG MOST-STREAMED ARTISTS: Following Drake on the list of the most-streamed acts of 2018 are eight more hip-hop acts: Post Malone (7.51 billion), XXXTentacion (6.91 billion), Eminem (4.82 billion), YoungBoy Never Broke Again (4.46 billion), Migos (4.17 billion), Travis Scott (4.01 billion), Cardi B (3.99 billion) and Lil Baby (3.32 billion). Rounding out the top 10 most-streamed acts of 2018 is pop superstar Ariana Grande, with 3.28 billion clicks.

“GOD’S PLAN” IS YEAR’S MOST-STREAMED SONG: Drake’s smash single “God’s Plan” finishes 2018 as the most-streamed song of the year, as it accumulated 1.566 billion on-demand audio and video streams -- a calendar-year record for a song. It was one of four titles to surpass 1 billion streams in 2018, up from just a single billion-streamer in 2017 (Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, with 1.32 billion).

The top 10 most-streamed songs of 2018 were unsurprisingly dominated by hip-hop titles, with Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” being the only non-hip-hop effort in the region (at No. 9, with 797.27 million streams).

Nielsen Music’s 2018 tracking year ran from Dec. 29, 2017, through Jan. 3, 2019. Due to a quirk in the calendar, there were 53 weeks in 2018 instead of the usual 52. So for 2018 volume comparisons to 2017, a corresponding 53-week period is used by Nielsen Music for 2017: Dec. 30, 2016 through Jan. 4, 2018. Numbers in this story are rounded.

Unfortunately all my SPS data for the first half of the year is now invalid.

Billboard revised their SEA conversion formula on their weekly BB200 chart from the beginning of July.

Based on the official top 10 SPS albums of the year that Billboard published, that revised formula has now been applied to the whole year.

Here's probably the biggest difference for the 2018 year end…

Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" SPS total for the 2nd half of the year totalled 1,318,000, using the revised 1250:1 subscription/3750:1 ad-supported SEA conversion formula. I arrived at this number by simply adding together the weekly reported SPS total from Billboard/hiphopdx.

The mid-year official total SPS was 1,791,000, which used a straight 1500:1 SEA conversion formula.

As the total year official SPS total stands at 3,251,000, the total, there's a "gain" of over 140,000 SEA thru recalculating the first 6 months numbers on the new formula.

I think most albums in general gained 10%~ in SEA units from the formula.

Post's album did 1.392m SEA equivalents mid-year under the old method, but as you said, the new one added 140K which is 10% more.

Scorpion's first week was 497K SEA under the old method, but 550K under the new. Again, about 10% more.

Hey oldbloke. Thanks for your hard work. I was wondering if you had the total pure sales for The Greatest Showman for the January 4 through 10, 2019 week.
