ACR = Accelerated Chart Ratio. Basically once a track has been on the chart for at least 9 weeks and records a decline in sales for three consecutive weeks its streams to download sales ratio is halved from 100:1 (Premium streaming) and 600:1 (ad-funded streaming) to 200:1 and 1200:1 respectively. The intention of ACR is to get older tracks with declining sales down and off the chart to make way for newer tracks. In reality what has happened so far is that the week a track hits ACR it suffers a large drop down the chart and then slowly drifts down and off the chart. However as the effect of ACR has been increased (it was 300:1 for all streams until last week) it may mean that older tracks fall down and off the chart a lot quicker.
