do Spotify and Rdio plays count?
I don't think so. Hopefully that's in the longer term planning for this.

Edit: Yes they do.

YouTube and Billboard are working hand in hand to eliminate inflated play counts due to bots and hackers.
And hackers are hard at work finding ways o exploit it ... heh.

To whoever it was that said streaming songs don't count towards the hot 100, I think it was Jason, they do count. That's part of the reason why macklemore and Ryan Lewis got to number 1 while Taylor swift was stuck at 2 for I knew you were trouble. Thrift shop is number 1 on streaming songs, while I knew you were trouble isn't available on streaming services
Yeap, edited my post.

1 Harlem Shake 262000 + 2000 + 2060000 = 2324000
2 Thrift Shop 412000 + 111000 + 202000 = 725000
3 Stay 306000 + 24000 + 78000 = 408000
4 Scream & Shout 158000 + 98000 + 192000 = 352000
5 I Knew You Were Trouble 149000 + 135000 + 56000 = 340000

Sales + (Airplay/1000) + (Total Streaming/50) ... looks to be the formula.
