There's a newer chart I've discovered recently, from a company that aims to compete with Nielsen-Soundscan.

BuzzAngle Music launched officially about a year ago, and its user-interactive charts enable you to sort data by a number of different combinations -- sales, on-demand streaming, programmed streaming, audio, video, direct-to-fan sales, and even geographic region. They just announced last week they will start including Shazam data in their charts, someting they claim is a first in a music analytics service.

Actual figures aren't available without using the paid service, but the free servcie will display a custom chart. That was the whole idea behind its creation... it can do things interactively that Nielsen-Soundscan can't.

Its CEO, Jim Lidestri, said in an interview just before launch, "We are getting it from the same source that Nielsen SoundScan is getting their data. We went right to the source. So we are getting it directly from Apple. We are getting it directly from each of the indie stores. We are getting it from the venues. We had to go back out, and almost re-create what they [Nielsen SoundScan] had done originally."

For a while I've been wishing that "Billboard" had a digital song chart that was sales AND on-demand streaming. That's exactly what BuzzAngle's "Song Project" chart does -- the default setting for Song Project is sales combined with on-demand streams (with every 150 on-demand song streams equal to one song sale, the same formula the RIAA uses for its digital song certifications).

Check it out. Here's the HITS Song Chart.

Does it incorporate radio play as well?

The BuzzAngle year-end report is out, loaded with tons of fascinating stats for 2017.

The biggest news for the year was streaming, streaming, streaming. "Despacito" became the first "billion-streamed" song.

Song downloads were down 23.2% from 2016. Only 15 songs sold over one million in 2017, compared to 36 in 2016 and 60 million-selling songs in 2015. So the "million seller" song tally has literally been cut in half two years in a row.

The top 25 selling songs from 12/30/16 to 12/28/17:

1. Shape of You - Ed Sheeran 2,653,251
2. Despacito - Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee 2,389,522
3. Body Like a Back Road - Sam Hunt 1,827,047
4. That's What I Like - Bruno Mars 1,705,634
5. Believer - Imagine Dragons 1,663,646
6. Something Just Like This - Chainsmokers & Coldplay 1,383,688
7. Say You Won't Let Go - James Arthur 1,209,491
8. Thunder - Imagine Dragons 1,188,138
9. I Don't Wanna Live Forever - ZAYN & Taylor Swift 1,125,257
