Today, FYI Debuts The Nielsen Powered Billboard Charts

Today's launch of the refreshed FYI Music News is intended to provide readers with a fast overview of news about Canada's music industry and international events that will have an impact on our own homegrown industry.

The new look includes a larger typeface, brighter and bolder graphics, easier navigation between news and regular features and the addition of Canadian charts.

Powered by Nielsen Music, the Billboard Canadian Airplay charts provide hits of the day by genre in all formats, plus a consumption chart that combines album and song download sales with on-demand streams.

Additionally, we are publishing the NCM Social Media Music Chart that ranks Canadian music acts by popularity metrics on various social media platforms.

The ability to now include these charts is an obvious enhancement to the website and part of FYI's strategy to provide the music industry with the best data and information about Canada's music market in one concise, regular and articulate package.

"We really have to thank Nielsen Canada Music's Paul Shaver and his team as well as the executive team at Billboard magazine in getting behind FYI's desire to have Canadian chart data readily available in a Canadian publication," FYI Editor David Farrell said in making the announcement.

"FYI Music is the authoritative information hub that embraces all segments of the Canadian music industry, from artists and songwriters to record labels, radio stations, retailers, publishers, associations, streaming providers and beyond, with credible news and information, said Paul Shaver, Head of Nielsen Music Canada.

Shaver added, "We're thrilled to enhance FYI Music's industry offerings by bringing Nielsen Music's trusted consumption and BDS airplay charts, powered by Billboard, to FYI Music News. These coveted charts will help give readers an even more comprehensive view of the dynamic and ever-changing music business."
