This Sunday, the industry recognizes their efforts and the songs fan loved most at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs 2021). The Billboard Awards are unique because there is no judge or fan voting to decide the winners. Instead, the consumers determine who wins, simply by listening to their favorite artists.

Billboard generates a weekly chart of what music is the hottest each week. From the Hot 100 to the Billboard’s Top 10, Billboard tracks each artist and song’s popularity across all major genres. This data is curated from sources including radio air-play, Spotify, YouTube, Pandora Radio and many more. Each year’s awards are the end result of data over a 12 month period.
