I don't like this. Youtube videos, especially those for huge artists, are known to be hugely inflated because of bots and hacks to make it seem like they're bigger singles than they are. Plus, there's no effort being made in terms of actually using money to buy the track. There's no real benefit to it.

Plus an amusing film clip might be the reason it goes no1
Or just a ridiculous mockery song that ppl watch to laugh at like Rebecca Black will be no1

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

Didn't pSY go no1 anyway?

Harlem shake is the Aus iTunes no1 at the moment in songs

My first thought too. My second thought was that the list is/was influenced by radio which is essentially just a bunch of artists signed to major labels and therefore get their shit played. At least this way it is influenced by what people actually like and not by what record companies and radio stations insist that you like.

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.
