Solid Gold Streaming Action

Following the first UK singles chart to take streaming data into account, the BPI has announced its first set of gold, silver and platinum discs based on both sales and streams.

Under the new rules of 100 streams=one sale, 80 singles have received new awards including Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ (Silver) and Beyonce and Jay-Z’s ‘Drunk In Love’ (Gold). In addition, albums including Tinie Tempah’s ‘Disc-Overy’ received a Platinum award.

BPI Chief Executive Geoff Taylor had something to say about this: “Like the Official Charts, the BPI’s Certified Awards and Platinum, Gold and Silver discs form part of our country’s music heritage, so including audio streams in the sales data for singles represents an important landmark”.
