Billboard Delays Chart Numbers


Last week artist Tyler the Creator accused Tidal of trying to manipulate the music charts by allowing Tidal exclusive music to play outside their paywall [click here if you missed that].

In totally unrelated news, Billboard announces they are delaying the release of this weeks chart numbers...

From Billboard
The release of Billboard's Aug. 12-dated charts is delayed.
A top-tier data provider has encountered technical issues, preventing the delivery of its data to Nielsen Music (which provides the sales, streaming and airplay information for Billboard's charts).
Due to this issue, and because there is a close race for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Billboard is holding back the release of all of its Aug. 12-dated charts until we get further clarity from the data provider. The chart results will be announced and posted as soon as possible this week. Thank you for your patience.

"the data provider" ain't nobody but Jay-Z in a wig and a data provider costume. Billboard and The Grammy's have become a pay-for-play scam!

More proof of "cooking the books". They should be audited or suffer the wrath from the shareholders.
