About Powerplaylist®

The Powerplaylist® is a new chart created by Mediabase, the leader in airplay data delivery and analysis for radio, satellite radio and cable music television channels. Mediabase tracks the airplay of all songs played on over 1,900 radio stations in North America. The Mediabase site is continuously updated 24-hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. As the authority on radio airplay in the United States and Canada, it was time for us to take the next step.

What makes the new Powerplaylist® stand apart from all other charts? For the first time, we’ve created a chart by merging the data from the Mediabase audience statistics, downloads and sales, number of views of music videos and the occurrences of streaming. All this, including tag information from Shazam makes the Powerplaylist® the most accurate indication of tastes in music from those listening and consuming songs.
