8 Songs That Would Have Hit No. 1 If “Billboard” Had Counted YouTube Views

8 Songs That Would Have Hit No. 1 If "Billboard" Had Counted YouTube Views

Billboard made a significant change in how they calculate their Hot 100 chart this week by adding YouTube streaming data to their method of determining chart placement. As a result, Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” is the first song to benefit from the change, debuting at No. 1, which is great for “Harlem Shake” but sucks for all these other songs that had videos everyone watched before Billboard cared.

8. Michael Jackson, “Thriller”

Michael Jackson, "Thriller"

If the internet existed in 1984, “Thriller” would have won YouTube just like it won MTV, but it didn’t exist yet, and even if it did, Billboard wouldn’t have cared yet, so it peaked at No. 4 instead of going No. 1.

7. Britney Spears, “Toxic”

Britney Spears, "Toxic"

Everyone watched the “Toxic” music video because, duh, it had Britney Spears writhing around wearing nothing but diamonds, but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 9 instead of going No. 1.

6. Lady Gaga, “Bad Romance”

Lady Gaga, "Bad Romance"

“Bad Romance” became the most-viewed YouTube video ever because we were fascinated by Lady G., but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 2 instead of going No. 1.

5. Justin Bieber, “Baby”

Justin Bieber, "Baby"

Then “Baby” broke Lady Gaga’s record because Beliebers are loyal and have a lot of time to sit and watch music videos, but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 5 instead of going No. 1.

4. Antoine Dodson, “Bed Intruder Song”

Antoine Dodson, "Bed Intruder Song"

We loved Atoine Dodson before he was autotuned, and the song version of his TV news debut stole our hearts even more, but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 89 instead of going No. 1.

3. Psy, “Gangnam Style”

Psy, "Gangnam Style"

Psy came out of nowhere to become a viral sensation, and “Gangnam Style” beat Justin Beiber’s record to become the most-watched YouTube video ever, but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 2 instead of going No. 1.

2. Rebecca Black, “Friday”

Rebecca Black, "Friday"

And who could forget living legend and American icon Rebecca Black, whose “Friday” blew up the internet but didn’t blow up the charts because Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it peaked at No. 58 instead of going No. 1.

1. Tay Zonday, “Chocolate Rain”

Tay Zonday, "Chocolate Rain"

But Rebecca Black was a mere child when Tay Zonday unleashed his own original song “Chocolate Rain” on the world. It was a YouTube sensation, but Billboard didn’t care about YouTube views yet so it didn’t even chart. :(
