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.

I suppose that's true, but man...of all the things hackers could be doing with their time (like compromising bank accounts and stuff) racking up plays on a Beyonce video so she can be #1 on the Hot 100 is so ridiculous. Of course that won't stop people though!

Psy is pissed at this turn of events. A few months ago he would've gone number 1. Anyway does this include Harlem shake?

Yes. Harlem Shake is No. 1 on the newest chart

Worth noting: There are now three components that make up the Hot 100 now. YouTube will be the lowest-weighted component, behind sales (#1) and radio play (#2)

Overall I do think its about time to have youtube views count toward the top 100 but the bots and hacks do make this ridiculous in a lot of ways
