Rihanna, Justin Bieber Top New Billboard Social 50 Chart

Justin-Bieber Rihanna and Justin Bieber are at the top of the new Billboard Social 50 Chart. The new chart joins the industry standard, Billboard Hot 100 to track artist popularity.

The new Social 50 chart includes social media to tally artist popularity.  Billboard is using social music tracking service Next Big Sound to keep track of artist stats on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networks.

The first Social 50 Chart includes some names you might know: Rihanna  earned the #1 spot, followed by Justin Bieber at #2 and Eminem at #3. Coming in at #4 is Lady Gaga with new artist Nicki Minaj in the fifth spot in the Billboard Social 50.

Read entire Social 50 chart over on I read the new chart and I think it is an interesting mix of musical celebs:

#6 – Black Eyed Peas

#12 – Michael Jackson

#13 – Taylor Swift

#28 – Kanye West

#32 – Coldplay

#38 – Jonas Brothers

#41 – The Beatles

#46 – Justin Timberlake

#47 – Demi Lovato

What do you think of the Social 50 Chart?  Is it me or is this new chart a little RANDOM?
