We’ve got a whole new way for you to experience what’s hot and trending here at Slacker as we bring the top 40 charts into the digital age with the Slacker EQ score.

“EQ” stands for “Engagement Quotient,” and a Slacker EQ score measures hundreds of millions of weekly data points to indicate how our users are engaging with any particular song. This includes hearts, plays, bans and more.

Check out the charts below every Thursday for the latest EQ scores and analysis from Slacker.

In the meantime, click on the infographic here to learn more about the methodology behind the EQ or listen to our Slacker Top 40 station, served up fresh every week with what’s hot.

Week of April 17th, 2014

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 4.17.14.

The top 5 most played *songs* this week across all of Slacker are:

  • Lorde- Team
  • Aloe Blacc- The Man
  • Bastille- Pompeii
  • John Newman- Love Me Again
  • Passenger- Let Her Go

The top 5 most played *artists* this week are:

  • Eminem
  • Avicii
  • Lorde
  • Jason Aldean
  • Imagine Dragons

For the second week in a row, country music enjoys an increased presence on Slacker’s Overall EQ chart. Whether this is a residual effect from last week’s post-ACM awards lift, or a legitimate shift in Slacker listeners’ habits remain to be seen, but I will be collecting data to not only understand this trend, but anticipate where it’s going. In the meantime, Florida Georgia Line’s “This Is How We Roll” jumps back into the top 10, moving up 9 spots, Justin Moore’s “Lettin The Night Roll” makes the biggest jump of the week—up 23 spots to land at 15—and Jarrod Neimann’s “Drink To That All Night” is up 15 spots to crack the top 20.

It’s useful to note that a country song has yet to be #1 in the history of Slacker’s EQ Overall chart—this week that spot belongs to Katy Perry again, but John Legend’s “All of Me” is right behind her in a statistical dead heat with “Dark Horse.” Will John Legend get his first #1 on Slacker next week? When will a country song go #1 on the Overall chart? Tune in next week…

On the Country-specific chart, we see the same trends that I detailed on the Overall chart, but amplified. Florida Georgia Line retakes the number 1 spot with “This Is How We Roll” by jumping back up 4 spots.

At Pop, Lorde charts for the 4th time with “Glory and Gore,” which debuts at 39, up 9 spots. Other big movers include Paramore’s “Aint it Fun,” which is up 9 spots to number 26, and Trey Songz’ “Na Na,” which is up 9 spots to crack the top 20.

The biggest jumps on the Hip Hop/R&B chart come this week come from Future’s “Move That Dope,” which is up 13 spots to 27, and Beyonce’s “Partition,” which debuts at 36, up 39 spots.

Sleeper Agent’s “Waves” and Bleachers’ “I Wanna Get Better” are the fastest rising tracks on our Alt/Indie chart—“Waves” is up 13 spots to number 26, and “I Wanna Get Better” jumps 11 spots to debut at number 35. And based on their current trajectory, the songs that are most likely to break up the Lorde/Bastille/American Authors traffic jam that has occupied the top of the chart for the last 6 weeks are Black Keys’ “Fever” and Kings of Leon’s “Wait for Me.”

And finally, Three Days Grace make a big debut on the Rock chart—their new “Painkiller” debuts at number 31, moving up 23 spots and answering any questions about how Slacker’s Rock audience would respond to the band’s new lineup.

To learn more, listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 4.10.14.

This week, the top 5 most played songs across all of Slacker were:

  • Lorde – Team
  • Bastille – Pompeii
  • Aloe Blacc – The Man
  • John Newman – Love Me Again
  • Jason Derülo – Talk Dirty

And the top 5 most played artists across all of Slacker were:

  • Avicii
  • Lorde
  • Eminem
  • Imagine Dragons
  • Pitbull

The big story across Slacker’s Overall chart this week is the ACMs. Keeping in mind that Slacker’s overall chart is just that—a measure of the most engaging songs for the week across all genres, for the entire Slacker audience—for the first time in recent history, we see 3 country artists in the top 10. In the past, I’ve documented the effect that major events and awards shows have amongst Slacker music fans, and we it see again this week.

Leading up to the ACMs last weekend, Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” was already one of the top 5 most engaging country tracks across all of Slacker. Post-ACMs, it’s up 44 spots and it rockets into the top 10. Keith Urban’s “Cop Car” is up 31 spots to crack the top 40 for the first time, Justin Moore’s “Lettin The Night Roll” is up 7 spots to debut in the top 40, and below the fold, Miranda Lambert’s “Automatic” is up 38 spots to land at number 64, and after his performance of the song with Sheryl Crow at the ACMs, Dierks Bentley’s “I Hold On” is up 28 spots to 41, narrowly missing the top 40.

On the Country chart, the ACM bounce Is even more pronounced. On average, the most engaging songs from any given week, move up 5-7 spots on the chart. This week, Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” is up 15 spots to land at number 2, Keith Urban’s “Cop Car” is up 15 spots to number 13, Dierks Bently’s “I Hold On” is up 13 spots to break into the top 15, and Miranda Lambert’s “Automatic” moves up 18 spots to number 22. This is in contrast to other artists on the chart that did not have a major on-screen presence or performance at last weekend’s ACMs—those artists saw normal jumps and declines.

Amongst Slacker’s Alt/Indie audience, Lorde’s got her 4th top 10 hit, as “Glory and Gore” moves up 19 spots to number 9 in its second week on the chart. We see debuts this week from Cherub with “Doses and Mimosas” and Capital Cities’ “One Minute More.”

Pharrell continues to dominate across genres. On the Hip Hop/R&B chart, not only does he hold the top spot for the 4th week in a row with “Happy,” but he makes a guest appearance on Future’s “Move That Dope,” which moves up 9 spots to debut at number 38. YG also debuts this week with “Who Do You Love.”

At Pop, Pitbull’s “Wild Wild Love” debuts at 28, moving up 15 spots. Calvin Harris’s “Summer” and Young Money’s “Trophies” also debut on the chart this week. And although she was prominently featured at the ACM awards via her duet with Blake Shelton, Shakira doesn’t appear to have received the same bump that country artists did—her “Can’t Remember To Forget You” is up 1 spot to number 16.

Finally, Slacker’s Rock audience continues to demonstrate their acceptance of newer artists and new music in general, as Falling In Reverse’s “It’s Over When It’s Over” makes a huge debut, up 20 spots to land at number 24.

To learn more, listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 4.3.14.

This week, the top 5 most played songs across all of Slacker were:

  1. Lorde- Team
  2. Aloe Blacc- The Man
  3. Jason Derulo- Talk Dirty
  4. John Newman- Love Me Again
  5. Passenger- Let Her Go

And the top 5 most played artists across all of Slacker were:

  1. Avicii
  2. Eminem
  3. Imagine Dragons
  4. Lorde
  5. Jason Aldean

At EDM, we see the triumphant return of two stars- Calvin Harris’ “Summer” shoots up another 24 spots to crack the top 5 in only its third week on the chart. And Skrillex returns to the chart with two tracks from his “Recess” album. The title track moves up 38 spots to debut at number 32, and “All is Fair In Love and Brostep” moves up 47 spots to debut at number 40. Unsurprisingly, Skrillex is currently the most engaging artist amongst Slacker’s EDM audience.

On the Hip Hop/R&B chart, Justin Timberlake’s “Not A Bad Thing” continues to be the most engaging track he’s released in over a year- it moves up 9 spots to crack the top 10 this week, and millions of Slacker listeners pushed it into the top 10 even faster than they did for 2013’s “Mirrors.” Elsewhere, we see a huge jump in engagement around Young Money’s “Trophies,” which moves up 28 spots to crack the top 20, and Lil’ Boosie’s “Show Da World,” which moves up 90 spots to debut at 40—a very strong return for the rapper following his lengthy incarceration.

Justin Timberlake is the big story on the Pop chart as well- “Not A Bad Thing” is turning out to be one of the most engaging tracks of 2014 amongst Slacker music fans, and it jumps up 19 spots to land at 15. Naughty Boy’s “La La La” makes its debut at number 35, up 38 spots, and Rixton’s “Me And My Broken Heart” debuts at 31, up 15 spots. Finally, as we predicted here last week, the Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE” has stalled at number 26.

We’ve got two big jumps from emerging artists and a huge debut from a huge band on the Alt/Indie chart this week: Vance Joy’s “Riptide” and Sleeper Agent’s “Waves” each jump up 21 spots to land at 31 and 32, respectively. And unsurprisingly, Slacker listeners’ reaction to a new track from the Black Keys was extremely favorable—“Fever” debuts at number 17 on the chart in its first week of release. This is the biggest debut on the Alt/Indie chart by any artist in 2014 thus far.

Finally, we will be watching the Country chart next week to see which artists receive post-ACM bumps in listener engagement. This week, Brett Eldridge is the big winner, as his “Beat of the Music” moves up 21 spots to break into the top 10. If this song continues its current trajectory amongst Slacker’s country audience, it will give him his second number 1 song on Slacker’s EQ charts.

To learn more, listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 3.27.14.

Eminem is the most played *artist* this week across all of Slacker, and Lorde’s “Team” is the most played *song* amongst millions of Slacker music fans. This marks the first time that Eminem has been the most played artist on Slacker since 2010, and this is the second time Lorde has had the most played song; she previously hit number 1 for several weeks with “Royals.”

At Pop, the Chainsmokers’ “#Selfie” continues its rise, moving up another 12 spots to narrowly miss the top 25. Our listener engagement metrics have shown this song to be extremely polarizing, which will likely prevent it from cracking the top 10. We will be watching this song’s development with great interest, as Slacker listeners tend to move on from novelty songs very quickly. MKTO makes the biggest debut on the Pop chart this week, moving up 121 spots to land at number 39 with their “Classic.”

We’ve got two notable debuts on the EDM chart this week: Headunterz’ “Colors” jumps up 291 spots to debut at number 40, and Calvin Harris’ “Summer” rockets on to the chart, moving up 1157 spots to debut at number 30 in only its second week of release. Calvin Harris has scored a record 4 number 1 songs on Slacker’s EDM EQ chart- based on its current trajectory and audience engagement, “Summer” looks like it could be his 5th!

On the Alt/Indie chart, we see another song following the same trajectory we’ve seen with artists like AWOLNATION and Imagine Dragons: a long, consistent, gradual build in terms of audience engagement. Bad Suns’ “Cardiac Arrest” has been on the chart for nearly 4 months, and it rises again this week, moving up 6 spots to finally crack the top 15.

In the world of terrestrial radio, the Rock format has seen serious declines, combined with FM radio stations’ tendencies to play less new music and fewer new bands. On Slacker, the rock audience continues to grow, and we see two artists score the highest EQ scores that we’ve seen on this chart in over a year. Those artists are Volbeat—their “Lola Montez” moves up 2 spots to take the number 1 spot, and The Pretty Reckless–their “Heaven Knows” checks in at number 2—a near statistical dead heat. To put this in to perspective, these two songs have nearly 30% greater listener engagement than even the song at number 20 on our Rock chart.

Finally, we see some significant movement on the Country chart: Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You,” Joe Nichols’ “Yeah,” Jake Owen’s “Beachin’,” and Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” all make debuts on the chart this week. Most notably, “Play It Again” is up 52 spots to debut at number 19; this is Luke Bryan’s highest debut and most immediately engaging track amongst Slacker listeners in the history of the EQ Country chart.

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 3.20.14.

For the second week in a row, Avicii is the most played *artist* across all of Slacker Radio. Lorde’s “Team” bumps off American Authors’ “Best Day Of My Life” to retake the top spot for most played *song* this week.

On an EDM chart that is consistently dominated by superstars like Avicii, Daft Punk, and Zedd, we see two notable debuts: Teddy Killerz’ “Big Blow” moves up 13 spots to debut at number 40, and Sander van Doorn’s “Right Here Right Now (Neon)” jumps 13 spots to land at 39. Amongst Slacker’s EDM audience, we are seeing two distinct trends: the emergence of the next round of superstar producers (like Sander van Doorn), and the audience embracing textures beyond the progressive and electro house that have been so dominant over the last 18 months (like the Russian DnB of Teddy Killerz).

The biggest jumps across all of Slacker this week appear on the Pop chart, as The Chain Smokers’ “#SELFIE” jumps up 48 spots to debut at number 38, and Justin Timberlake’s “Not A Bad Thing” rockets up 168 spots to debut at 39. This is JT’s most engaging and fastest-rising song amongst Slacker music fans since “Mirrors” debuted on the chart February 2013.

Speaking of Justin Timberlake, he’s got the biggest jump in engagement across all of Slacker this week. In addition to debuting on the Pop chart, “Not A Bad Thing” jumps up 126 spots to debut at number 19 on the Hip Hop/R&B chart. Slacker curator favorite Naughty Boy also debuts on that chart this week; “La La La” moves up 13 spots to debut at number 40.

HAIM’s “If I Could Change Your Mind” shoots up 789 spots to debut at number 38 on the Alt/Indie chart; this is an outlier event, as the song was featured as our “Introducing” pick on the Slacker Top 40 last week. This exposed the song to hundreds of thousands of listeners that wouldn’t have otherwise heard the song on our Alt/Indie stations. Kings of Leon’s “Wait for Me” continues to be the most engaging and resonant track yet from their recent “Mechanical Bull” album; after previous singles failed to chart, Slacker listeners push this song up 14 spots this week to land at number 17.

And finally, David Nail is the most engaging country artist across all of Slacker for the 3rd week in a row. His “Whatever She’s Got” is number 1 on the Country chart, and listener response has been so favorable that we have tapped him to host and curate his own station on Slacker! We met up with him at SXSW last week; be looking for the ”David Nail: I Am The DJ” station to launch on Slacker in the next few weeks!

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Aloe Blacc’s “The Man” is the biggest overall mover this week on Slacker’s EQ charts—it’s up 23 spots to crack the top 10, and is currently the 3rd most-played song across all of Slacker. Avicii is the most played artist on Slacker this week, and he’s got two songs in the Overall Top 40 chart; his “Hey Brother” moves up 18 spots to crack the top 25.

Mariah Carey breaks the top 10 on the Hip Hop/R&B with her “Eternal (You’re Mine) in only its second week of release. She also jumps up 35 spots to debut at 23 on the Pop Chart. This song is Mariah’s fastest rising single since we’ve started tracking the Slacker EQ charts, and if it continues on its current trajectory, we expect that this could be number 1 within a few weeks.

Speaking of the Pop chart, Katy Perry is number 1 again with “Dark Horse,” and Eminem’s collab with Nate Ruess “Headlights” is proving to be instantly engaging with the Slacker audience—it moves up 29 spots to debut at number 34.

Your Slacker curators are always seeking out the next great band to share with you, and this week we see two independent artists that have received minimal national exposure starting to engage millions of music fans. Bear Hands rocket on to the Alt/Indie chart, moving up 23 spots to debut at number 32 with “Giants,” and Wild Cub’s “Thunder Clatter” debuts at number 35—both bands have been championed by Slacker curators for months.

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some key insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week 2.27.14.

John Legend’s “All of Me” is one of the most unlikely success stories of the year. In an EQ chart filled with pop-EDM, pop-Country, and just plain contemporary pop, John Legend’s soulful, piano-driven power ballad continues be one of the most resonant songs with millions of Slacker music fans. It moves up 8 spots this week to crack the top 10 on the overall chart—the first time John Legend has been in the Slacker EQ top 10 for several years. Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” is another R&B ballad that is racing up the EQ charts; your Slacker curators think this may be an indication that music fans are ready for a return to the kind of R&B crossover hits that we saw in the ‘90s from artists like TLC and Boyz II Men.

Lorde’s “Team” jumps both American Authors’ “Best Day Of My Life” and OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” to become the most played song on Slacker this week.

Other songs that are rapidly moving up Slacker’s audience engagement charts include: Tim McGraw’s “Lookin’ For That Girl,” Chevelle’s “Take Out The Gunman,” Naughty Boy’s “La La La,” and Sage the Gemini’s “Down On Your Luck.”

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are your insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 2.20.14!

Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is following a pattern that is becoming increasingly familiar– a song that was released in early 2013 as part of the “Despicable Me 2″ soundtrack is only just now starting to make the charts. This is due in part to Pharrell’s visibility on the Grammys, the upcoming Oscars, and as the producer behind several of the biggest hits of the last 6 months. It’s also aided by last week’s announcement that it will be included on his second solo album, which is called G I R L, and will be released on March 3rd.

For the first time in 2014, we have a new song topping Slacker’s EQ charts, as Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” overtakes OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars.” Katy’s fanbase on Slacker is so strong that she has 3 of the top 40 songs on our EQ chart–more than any other artist.

Even as it falls to the second spot on Slacker’s EQ chart, OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” moves past American Authors’ “Best Day Of My Life” this week to become the most played song of the week across all Slacker radio stations.

Other songs that are moving quickly up our audience engagement charts include: John Legend’s “All Of Me,” Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty,” Cole Swindell’s “Chillin’ It,” Trevor Jackson’s “Drop It,” and Paramore’s “Aint it Fun”. Based on those songs’ current trajectory, any one of them could be vying for the number 1 spot on Slacker’s EQ charts in the next few weeks!

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Over the Christmas holidays, Slacker’s EQ charts were overcome with holiday songs across nearly every genre. Who knew that there was such a thing as EDM Christmas music? Now that we’ve all settled in to 2014 and the seasonal songs have subsided, here are some insights from Slacker’s EQ charts for the week of 1/8/14:

Queen Bey is predictably taking Slacker’s Hip Hop/R&B chart by storm—she moves up 14 spots to crack the top 10 with “Drunk In Love,” and her “XO” debuts this week at number 38, moving up 115 spots. And after being featured as the “New Music First” pick on last week’s Slacker Top 40 countdown, Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” shoots up a remarkable 124 spots to debut on the chart.

Phantogram’s “Fall In Love” is the most engaging new song of 2014 thus far amongst Slacker’s Alt/Indie listeners—it moves up 48 spots to debut at number 31 this week. We also see significant spikes in listener engagement on Echosmith’s “Cool Kids,” and NoNoNo’s “Pumpin Blood.” This is likely due to these songs’ inclusion and exposure on Slacker’s new “Artists To Watch 2014” station.

At Pop, Katy Perry pulls an EQ hat-trick; her “Roar” continues to hang in the top 5, her “Unconditionally” moves up 7 spots to land at number 11, and her “Dark Horse” jumps up 16 to crack the top 20. That’s 3 songs in the top 20 for Ms. Perry. A favorite of your Slacker curators continues to win over new fans in the Slacker nation: John Newman’s “Love Me Again” moves up 13 spots to land at 26, and his new album “Tribute” is Slacker’s Album of the Week!

EDM is by no means a new art form, but the idea of DJ or producer as international mainstream superstar is a relatively new idea. And when it happens, it happens in a major way. To wit: based on Slacker EDM listeners’ preferences and engagement with individual artists and songs, 7 out of the top 10 songs on the chart belong to 3 artists: Avicii, Zedd, and Calvin Harris.

Two things have become clear when we analyze Slacker’s Country EQ charts over the last 6-9 months. Slacker country listeners are adventurous—they embrace new artists as much as the established super stars—and they are fully embracing the pop-crossover sound that is currently taking Nashville by storm. For example, Cole Swindell’s “Chillin’ It” is number 1 by a healthy margin for the 4th week in a row, Frankie Ballard’s “Helluva Life” is the fastest mover of 2014 thus far, as it moves up 6 spots and cracks the top 15 for the first time, and Luke Bryan has 2 songs in the top 10.

And finally, we predict that 2014 is the year that Rock evolves. Much like the Alternative charts of a few years ago, the Rock chart in 2013 was dominated by a small handful of legacy artists, like Alice In Chains, Papa Roach, and Three Days Grace. But in recent months, we’ve seen a shift: the Slacker rock audience is starting to engage with newer, more contemporary rock artists in a significant way. Artists like Black Veil Brides, Bring Me The Horizon, Trivium, Asking Alexandria, and Gemini Syndrome are all present on the chart as 2014 begins and they are all on the rise.

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some of the key insights and trends from Slacker’s EQ charts this week.

It’s an interesting week on Slacker’s Pop chart, as mainstays such as Britney Spears and Lady Gaga have fallen of the chart altogether, replaced by newcomers like John Newman, who’s “Love Me Again” is at 34, and August Alsina, who’s “I Luv This S**t” moves up 1 spot to crack the top 25.  We are also seeing evidence of a post-Grammy nomination bounce; Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” re-enters the chart at 37 after a 4 week absence.

Amongst all of the music fans in the Slacker community, we see that country fans are most likely to switch over to our Christmas stations in December. This leads to an overall decline in the engagement scores on Slacker’s Country chart, which we see across the board this week. That said, there are a few notable jumps this week—Thompson Square’s “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” moves up 24 spots to number 18, Randy Houser’s “Goodnight Kiss” jumps 23 spots to land at 16, and Jason Aldean rockets into the top 15 as his “When She Says Baby” advances 26 spots.

Tamar Braxton charts her second song of 2013 on the Slacker’s Hip Hop/ R&B chart, as “All The Way Home” debuts at number 30. Other notable debuts include Rick Ross’ “No Games,” which lands at 39, and Yo Gotti’s King S**t, which checks in at 35.

At Rock, Avenged Sevenfold is gunning for their second number 1 record of 2013; “Shepherd of Fire” jumps up 10 spots to crack the top 5, while their “Hail to the King” still holds the number 1 spot. It may be that the only band that can knock Avenged Sevenfold out of the top spot on Slacker’s Rock chart is…Avenged Sevenfold. Meanwhile, the biggest jumps of the week belong to All That Remains, who’s “Stand Up” moves up 11 spots to crack the top 25, and newcomers Devour The Day, who make a major statement by jumping 44 spots to debut at 39 with “Good Man.”

As the year comes to a close, fans of Slacker’s Alt and Indie stations continue to discover new music that they are clearly engaging with: Kopecky Family Band scores their first appearance on the Alt/Indie chart with “Are You Listening,” which moves up 18 spots, the latest single from Young the Giant—“It’s About Time”—moves up 15 spots to debut at 34, and Portugal. The Man’s “Modern Jesus” makes the biggest jump of the week, moving up 76 spots to debut at 38.

And finally, we see and example of what the EQ charts are really all about at EDM this week. Benny Benassi’s “Back To The Pump” jumps up an incredible 165 spots to debut at number 23 in only its 3rd week of release. Slacker’s EQ charts allow our curators to see how listeners are engaging with new music in near real-time, and then use that information to continue to create the best radio experience anywhere! This is an example of Slacker listeners giving a new song a near-unanimous “thumbs up!”

Listen to the Slacker Top 40 station *here*–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Here are some of the key insights and trends from Slacker’s EQ charts this week.

At country, as the year comes to a close, we see a glimpse of what 2014 may look like; Cole Swindell’s “Chillin It” becomes the first song on the top of the Country chart that isn’t by Florida Georgia Line in recent memory. More significantly, this may be interpreted as a big stamp of approval from millions of Slacker country fans of the new and often polarizing sound of contemporary country—one that is more pop than traditional. Elsewhere, Tyler Farr’s “Whiskey In My Water,” Justin Moore’s “Lettin The Night Roll,” and Dierks Bentley’s “I Hold On” all make huge jumps to land in the top 20.

Speaking of pop, it’s notable that the chart continues to be dominated by this year’s breakout artists rather than the established superstars of the genre. 2013 will conclude with artists like Lorde, Avicii, Imagine Dragons, Capital Cities, AWOLNATION, and Zedd dominating the top 15—in some cases, these artists haven’t left the top of the chart for months at a time. We also see the class of 2014 starting to materialize, as tracks from Passenger, Zendaya, John Newman, and Rich Homie Quan continue to shoot up the chart, powered by millions of Slacker listeners’ engagement.

Newcomers Rich Homie Quan, Sevyn Streeter, Sage the Gemini, and YG continue to be the fastest movers up the Hip Hop/R&B chart, but the top spot still belongs to Eminem’s “The Monster.”

At Rock, we see The Pretty Reckless and Scott Stapp cracking the top 40 for the first time, and on the Alt/Indie chart, HAIM, New Politics, and Echosmith continue to win new fans and move up the chart accordingly.

Finally, EDM continues to be the island of misfit subgenres, as artists like Avicii, Diplo, Lana Del Rey, Hot Chip, RAC, and Knife Party continue to garner increased listener engagement amongst millions of Slacker listeners while co-existing peacefully.

Listen to the  Slacker Top 40 station here–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

As the end of the year approaches, we are looking at the EQ data for all of 2013, and some interesting insights appear. For example, even though it’s only been out for two weeks, Eminem’s  “The Monster” is already the 12th most “Hearted” song of 2013 on Slacker. And did you know that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” is both the 3rd most “Hearted” and the 2nd most “Banned” song of 2013? In the coming weeks we will be sharing more of this data, and more importantly—using it to create more great radio experiences. After all, Slacker’s EQ charts are a reflection of the songs that you, the music fan, care about most. In the meantime, here are some key insights from this week’s EQ charts.

Amongst Slacker’s hip hop fans, Eminem still reigns supreme; 4 tracks from his new album “The Marshall Mathers Album II” made the Hip Hop/R&B chart this week, including his collab with Rihanna, “The Monster,” which is at number 2 and rising. Eminem’s invasion of the chart is likely due to his new album being featured as Slacker’s “Album Of The Week” last week; when given the opportunity to listen to the record in its entirety, Slacker listeners clearly singled out “Berzerk,“ “Rap God,” “Survival,” and “The Monster” as their favorite tracks—which directly led to their ranks on the chart this week. We also see that Sage The Gemini has another hit on his hands with “Red Nose,” as it moves up 21 spots to debut at 24.

On Slacker’s Rock chart, Chester Bennington appears to be the man of the hour. Linkin Park’s remix collaboration with Steve Aoki makes a huge debut; the EDM-meets-rock “A Light That Never Comes” is at number 16 this week. Meanwhile, his side work as Stone Temple Pilots’ new vocalist is clearly engaging Slacker’s rock fans—STP’s “Black Heart” makes a huge debut, moving up 60 spots to land at number 24.

At Country, we see the established superstars continuing to enjoy a post-CMA awards bounce alongside huge jumps from the next generation of young country artists. Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and Florida Georgia Line all moved up the charts after their wins at the CMAs, while Danielle Bradbury’s “The Heart Of Dixie” moves up 20 spots to debut at number 38 and Cassadee Pope’s “Wasting All These Tears” continues its ascent, landing at number 16 on Slacker’s Country chart this week.

When we look at the Alt/Indie chart as a whole, it’s remarkable how much the composition has changed, even compared to one year ago. The rock textures of long-time alternative staples like Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, and even 30 Seconds To Mars are notably absent, replaced by the electro-pop sound of acts like Smallpools, NoNoNo, Bastille, and of course, Lorde. No format that we track has so much variation in sound and style from year to year as our Alt/Indie chart. Notable movers this week include The Neighbourhood’s “Afraid,” which jumps 20 spots to land at number 12, and Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor,” which jumps 8 spots to settle at number 29. Arcade Fire has seen a sustained spike on this chart since their feature as Slacker’s Album Of The Week, which exposed the entire album to millions of Slacker listeners that might not have otherwise discovered it via Slacker’s Alt and Indie station lineup.

Slacker’s Pop chart continues to be dominated by the usual suspects like Lorde, OneRepublic, and Katy Perry. But the alt-rock of AWOLNATION and the EDM of Avicii are poised to potentially upset the homogeny of the top 5 in the coming weeks. Zendaya makes her first appearance on the Pop chart as “Replay” jumps 15 spots to debut at number 35, and fueled by Rihanna’s assist, Eminem’s “The Monster” debuts this week at number 8—the first time he’s cracked the Pop chart in recent memory.

Finally, While the EDM chart continues to be dominated by international stars like Avicii, Zedd and Calvin Harris, this week we see some new names. These artists are bringing a diverse range of styles, with trap from Diplo, hard electro from Martin Garrix, and indie dance from RAC. And while neither artist is exactly “new,” the combination of Linkin Park and Steve Aoki on the remix of “ A Light That Never Comes” is clearly engaging Slacker music fans, as it makes a huge debut at number 12 this week. We see that EDM continues to be an umbrella term for a whole spectrum of subgenres, and Slacker’s human curation is key in taking all of these disparate sounds and making great radio!

Listen to the  Slacker Top 40 station here–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

As 2013 comes to a close, the artists that made the biggest impact with Slacker listeners become clear–Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Florida Georgia Line, Avicii and more. However, there are major new releases still on the way–from established stars Eminem, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Eric Church, and more. You can track all of these artists and their engagement with millions of Slacker music fans here; key insights from this week’s EQ charts are below.

Country fans made the biggest impact on Slacker’s Overall top 40 chart this week, as they push David Nail’s “Whatever She’s Got up 11 spots to number 23, and Eli Young Band’s “Drunk Last Night” moves up 10 spots to number 27. At the top of the chart, Lorde, Katy Perry, and Avicii continue hold down the top 3 spots, but it is nearly a statistical dead heat, which leads us to believe that there may be a new number 1 next week. EDM fans joined forces with Slacker’s Pop constituency this week to propel Ellie Goulding’s new track on to the chart; “Burn” is up 6 spots to debut at number 36.

Speaking of EDM fans—as those producers and performers continue to become part of the mainstream consciousness, we see this reflected on Slacker’s EQ charts. For example, Zedd, Calvin Harris, Avicii, and Krewella each have 3 songs on the EDM chart, giving those 4 artists a 30% total share of the most engaging EDM songs among Slacker listeners. That’s not to say that Slacker listeners aren’t engaging with lesser-known artists; new tracks from RAC, Xilent, and Keys N Krates all move up the chart this week.

Predictably, Eminem is the big story on the Hip Hop/R&B chart. 3 tracks from his upcoming “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” make the chart this week; “Berzerk” is number 14, “Survival” is number 35, and “Rap God” moves up 115 spots to debut at number 40. And the great thing about Slacker’s engagement data is that it allows your curators to immediately respond to listener demand. To that end, we are featuring a special “Eminem 33” station this week, which counts down his 33 most popular songs, as determined by millions of Slacker listeners. And next week, we are featuring “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” as our Album of the Week, which will allow all Slacker listeners to listen to the entire thing, as much as they like!

Being that it’s Halloween week, it’s only appropriate that we feature a song that has risen from the dead. Nearly 2 years after it topped the Alt/Indie chart, AWOLNATION’s “Sail” makes like a zombie and breaks in to the top 10 on the Pop chart. Big Sean’s “Beware” makes the biggest debut of the week, moving up 14 spots to land at number 31.

On the Rock chart, we have a new number one for the first time in 2 months, as Pop Evil’s “Trenches” finally unseats Black Veil Brides’ “In The End.” And supergroup Eye Empire debut on the chart at number 34 with “More Than Fate.”

At Country, Thomas Rhett takes over the number 1 spot with his “It Goes Like This,” Dustin Lynch’s “Wild In Your Smile” and Randy Houser’s “Goodnight Kiss” see the biggest spike in listener engagement this week, and after being featured as a Slacker “Song Stuck In My Head” last week, Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” makes a big debut at number 33.

And finally, we know that Lorde is perhaps the most engaging artist of the year amongst Slacker music fans. She tops 4 of our 7 charts this week. But amongst Alt/Indie fans, she is truly dominating. For the first time in Slacker EQ history, one artist has 3 different songs in the top 15–and it’s Lorde. Her “Royals” is number 1, “Tennis Court” is number 7, and new single “Team” is number 11 on the Alt/Indie chart. In a remarkably short period of time, Lorde has proven that she is no one-hit-wonder–at least amongst the millions of Slacker listeners that determine the EQ scores that these charts are based from.

Listen to the  Slacker Top 40 station here–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Week of October 13th, 2013

We know that when we feature a song or artist on Slacker as a “Song Stuck In My Head,” “Artist of the Week” or “Album of the Week,” that artist typically sees a big spike in our weekly EQ charts. But what happens when an artist is at the center of a pop culture phenomenon? We see Blake Shelton’s EQ scores ebb and flow depending on how his team performs on “The Voice” from week to week, and after Miley’s controversial VMA performance, she shot up the chart. This week, Drake was the beneficiary of a viral meme called #StarbucksDrakeHands, and as a result, “Hold On, We’re Going Home” got a significant boost on the charts. Details and key insights from this week’s EQ charts across all genres are below.

Within the EDM chart we observe several genres of electronic music co-existing peacefully, all enjoying equal enthusiasm and engagement of millions of Slacker music fans. We see the pop-dubstep of Krewella—who have 3 tracks on the chart, the indie-electronic sounds of Lorde--who holds the number one spot on the chart, the progressive trance of Tiesto and Armin van Buuren, and the house stylings of Avicii all represented here. Tiesto’s “Chasing Summers” makes the biggest jump of the week, moving up 11 spots to land at number 25.

On the Pop chart, for the first week in recent memory, the biggest movers are hip hop and R&B artists, rather than the recent EDM invaders. Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is up 17 spots to settle at number 11—this spike is in direct correlation with this week’s #StarbucksDrakeHands phenomenon on Instagram and Vine. J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” is up 19 spots to land at number 32, and Bruno Mars’ “Gorilla” makes a huge debut this week, moving 35 spots to number 33.

As is often the case, once Slacker listeners are introduced to a new artist that they love, they dive deeper to discover more of that artist’s music. That would explain why Lorde has a record 3 songs on the Alt/Indie chart this week. “Royals” is number one for the 4th week in a row, followed by “Tennis Court” at number 10, and “Team” makes its debut on the chart this week—moving up 23 spots to number 28.

At Hip Hop, Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” takes the top spot—again, we see the power of the #StarbucksDrakeHands meme. Travie McCoy returns to the game after a lengthy absence, as his “Rough Water” makes the week’s biggest jump, moving up 65 spots to debut at number 27. Jay Z, as always, looms large over all of hip hop, as his “Holy Grail” holds down the top 5 while he’s got back to back spots at nos. 38 and 39 with “F**kwithmeyouknowigotit” and “Tom Ford.”

Pop Evil’s “Trenches” is the first song in weeks to challenge Black Veil Brides’ “In The End” for the number one spot on the Rock chart, and Pearl Jam’s “Sirens” makes a big jump to debut on the chart at number 29. Incidentally, Pearl Jam’s “Lightning Bolt” is Slacker’s Album Of The Week—so you can listen to the whole thing, as much as you would like, all week long!

Finally, Slacker’s Country chart has a new number 1 and a rootsy debut. Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind Of Night” knocks Florida Georgia Line out of the top spot, and Zac Brown Band’s “Sweet Annie” debuts at number 40.

Hear Lorde, Avicii, Luke Bryan, and Drake all living together in relative harmony on the Slacker Top 40 station here,–a countdown featuring the 40 most engaging tracks of the week, hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Week of October 6th, 2013

One of the interesting patterns that emerges on Slacker’s EQ charts is how arbitrary tags that we use to describe bands and genres seem to disappear when we measure actual listener engagement instead of media coverage, FM radio airplay, and the opinions of music critics. Is CHVRCHES “indie” or “alternative?” Those tags clearly don’t matter, as millions of Slacker listeners push them up the Alt/Indie chart this week. Is Kacey Musgraves too “progressive” for country radio? Slacker listeners say no, as she makes the chart for the second week in a row. Is Lorde “alt,” “pop,” “indie” or something else altogether? It doesn’t matter, as she appears on charts for 4 different genres this week, including the Overall charts. More examples and insights from this week’s charts are below.

AWOLNATION continues their improbable rise up the Pop chart with “Sail,” over a year after it peaked on the Alt/Indie chart. It makes the biggest jump this week, up 20 spots to land at number 11. Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” is also enjoying a similar reemergence at Pop—it holds its spot in the top 10 for the 2nd week in a row, aided by its Cedric Gervais remix.

On the EDM chart, we continue to track the crossover of “pure” EDM to Pop and beyond. RAC’s “Let Go” appears to be a good candidate to crossover beyond the world of electronic music–in addition to being one of the top-rated songs on several of Slacker’s individual EDM and Indie stations, it makes the second-biggest jump on the EDM chart this week, moving up 21 spots to debut at number 28.

The “blogbands” are taking over on the Alt/Indie chart, as MS MR’s “Hurricane” moves up 11 spots to land at number 22, and a band that your Slacker curators first introduced you to on our “Artists to Watch 2013” station back in January—CHVRCHES—moves up 10 spots to number 32. American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life” makes its EQ debut this week, moving up 9 spots to crack the top 40.

We’ve been tracking the rise of two new artists on the Hip Hop/R&B chart for the last month; this week Rich Homie Quan’s “Type of Way” moves up 2 spots to number 6, and Sage the Gemini’s “Gas Pedal” moves up 7 spots to crack the top 10. These two artists are engaging Slacker listeners more powerfully than any new hip hop artists in recent chart history. Miley Cyrus also somehow (t)works her way on to the Hip Hop/R&B chart, via her guest spot on Mike Will Made-It’s “23,” which debuts at number 40 this week.

At Country, the chart is relatively stable, although Keith Urban’s “We Were Us” makes a big jump, moving up 17 spots to number 29. Blake Shelton’s performance on the chart seems to mirror his performance on “The Voice” from week to week, and as he filled out his team this week, his “Mine Would Be You” moves up one spot to crack the top 10!

Finally, congratulations are in order to Black Veil Brides, who break a record this week—their “In The End” has held the top spot on the Rock chart for 8 weeks now. This is perfect example of a song that received limited consideration and airplay on FM radio, but because Slacker’s EQ charts measure actual listener engagement—not “spins” or airplay—it is allowed to rise to the top of the chart on its own merits and based on the strength of its fanbase.

Take a listen to this week’s Overall chart here, in the form of a countdown hosted by Slacker DJ Parker. And check back next week to see how millions of Slacker music fans just like you push songs up and down the charts—just by listening, skipping, Hearting, and banning the songs that you hear!

Week of September 29th, 2013

This week the Slacker EQ Charts are all about blurred lines. Not Robin Thicke’s summer hit, but the increasingly blurry lines between music genres, and more importantly—music fans of different backgrounds. We’ve known for a long time here at Slacker that contemporary music fans don’t limit themselves to just one kind of music, and you can see this play out on Slacker’s Overall EQ chart every week–where Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, and Lorde all live together in relative harmony. But this week, we see the EDM, Pop, Alt/Indie, and Overall charts sharing tracks and artists more than ever before, and it’s all being driven by the behavior and engagement of millions of Slacker listeners. Examples and insights from this week’s charts are below.

Lorde tops the Overall chart this week, as well as the Pop, EDM, and Alt/Indie charts. This song is one of the biggest hits of this year, not only because it’s really great, but because it has created consensus with music fans from so many different genres. Capital Cities is in a similar spot, occupying a position in the top 5 across the Overall, Pop, EDM, and Alt/Indie charts.

On the EDM chart, the lines continue to blur between mainstream pop and “pure” EDM, as Avicii, Zedd, and Calvin Harris continue to dominate this chart while also increasingly infiltrating the Pop charts.

At Pop, Lorde unseats Katy Perry for the number 1 spot, while Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” moves into the top 10 and AWOLNATION’s “Sail” debuts at number 25, nearly 3 years after its original release. This is another case of an artist from a different genre—in this case, Alt/Indie–writing a song that is so universally engaging that it ultimately gets discovered and elevated by music fans from all genres.

We see some significant movement and big debuts on the Alt/Indie chart this week, as NoNoNo’s “Pumpin Blood” rockets on to the chart, moving up 40 spots to debut at number 21. MS MR’s “Hurricane,” the 1975’s “Chocolate,” and Chvrches’ “The Mother We Share” all debut in the top 40 this week as well, based on their strong engagement with Slacker listeners.

Rich Homie Kwan’s “Type Of Way” continues to be one of the most engaging hip hop tracks of the year, moving up another 4 spots to crack the top 10 on Slacker’s Hip Hop/R&B chart. The same goes for Sage The Gemini’s “Gas Pedal”, which is up 11 spots. Jason Derulo’s new single “Marry Me” makes the biggest debut of the week on this chart, as Slacker listeners push it up 46 spots to debut at number 21.

On the Country chart, Florida Georgia Line is on top again, this time with “Round Here,” which narrowly bumps Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night” for the number 1 spot. And fresh off making history with 6 nods in her first year as a nominee at the CMA’s, Kacey Musgraves debuts on the chart again, this time with “Merry Go ‘Round.”

Finally, at Rock, we see three songs debut on a chart that has been fairly static for the last few weeks; Volbeat’s “Lola Montez,” Skillet’s “American Noise,” and Escape the Fate’s “One For the Money” all crack the top 40 this week.

You can join Slacker DJ Parker as she hosts our weekly countdown of the top 40 most engaging songs on Slacker this week—listen here. Check back here next week to see how the songs that you listen to, Heart, and share the most move up and down the charts!
