UK Singles Chart to change

"The changes are designed to ensure the chart continues to be a showcase for the new hits and talent which are the lifeblood of UK music. 

The key change will be to allow artists to have only their 3 most popular tracks (based on sales and streams) to feature in the Official Singles Chart Top 100.

The move will make it easier for new hits and artists to feature in the chart by preventing multiple tracks from popular artists dominating the singles chart. The move will minimise double-counting of album tracks between the Official Singles and Albums Charts and make the two charts more distinct. The new changes are expected to boost the number of chart hits by around 10%. 

In the past 12 months, artists including Drake, Stormzy, Kendrick Lamar, Chainsmokers, Little Mix, The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran have had multiple tracks in the Top 40. The changes will limit the domination of such artists, with streaming of tracks (as music fans listen to their favourite albums) spilling over into the singles chart. "

i mean i sorta dislike it, if someone's killing it on the uk charts why downplay their success by only allowing three of their tracks to chart...

on the other hand this will help smaller artists shine
