In the music industry, there is a constant competition to be at the top of the charts.There are many factors that go into who makes it to the number 1 spot when it comes to the music world.
The week of September 30, 2017, Taylor Swift was at the top of a chart and no one could take her crown for that golden number one spot. She stayed at the top for 4 straight weeks before Cardi B. came in and kicked her off her golden throne.
With Cardi B. now on top, other artists such as Imagine Dragons, are climbing the ladder ready to take the number one spot.
What does it take to claw your way to the top though?
- Social Media
- Album sales
- And even fan base
Just to name a few.
It takes more than just an artist’s voice to make it to the Billboard top 100 though. Making a song, let alone an album takes a lot of time, talent, and labor.
Next time you see a new artist at the top, just know, it took a lot to get there. Hats off to those who made it to the number 1 spot, or even on the top 100 chart.
