#Billboard to count #YouTube Streams into ALBUM CHARTS!? [details]

According to a report from Hits Daily Double, for the first time, YouTube streams may now be factored into the ranking of albums on the Top 200 albums chart, including streams for user-generated clips. Lyor Cohen, head of global music at YouTube, was reportedly in charge of the change, hoping to cater to the modern day styles of music consumption.

YouTube views already count towards the Hot 100 chart and other album charts, and are even factored in by the Recording Industry Association of America when determining gold and platinum status.

The latest change has yet to be confirmed by Billboard, but if put into effect, artists outside the mainstream major label machine may have a chance to land on the Billboard 200 chart.

SO EVEN THE WACKEST projects can possibly go GOLD and PLATINUM as long as they have a FOLLOWING on YouTube to support them... WE WILL SEE....
