From Issue:

Billboard has created the "On-Demand Songs" chart, based on song plays on subscription online music services. Data from the chart is now included in Billboard's Hot 100.

The weekly chart will rank songs based on "every on-demand play request and plays from unlimited listener-controlled radio channels" available from MOG, Muve Music, Rdio, Rhapsody, Slacker and Spotify (data from Zune and Sony Music Unlimited is planned to be included in the coming weeks). This includes streams as well as tethered downloads, as heard by paying subscribers and free users alike.

Billboards' Hot 100 will now include the streaming data from the new On-Demand Songs chart, plus non-interactive plays from Rhapsody and Slacker. (This is in addition to terrestrial radio plays, digital track sales, plays on video request service Akoo, and audio from on-demand streams from MySpace and Guvera, Yahoo! radio streams and Yahoo! on-demand video plays.)

Nielsen BDS, which collects and processes the streaming data for the chart, says it's tallied more than 4.5. billion audio streams so far this year, including an all-time weekly high of more than 625 million in the past week. The updated Hot 100 and the new On-Demand Songs chart debut tomorrow on Billboard.com and Billboard.biz, and in the next issue of Billboard magazine, available Friday. The On-Demand Songs chart will also be featured each week on www.digitalmusic.org.

It's not going to make anything different, because....

This is not going to mean anything is going to be different than before the changes, because the whole process is rigged anyway, and that from those who actually were in the pools that supposedly 'report' to the charts, because it turns out only certain records promoted by the big labels are allowed to show up in the charts anyway.

We're going to have to see raw sales and usage data, and airplay spins, to see what is really being listened to, not the Billboard charts.
