Lynrd.com: Late American singer Whitney Houston has became popular as digital sales and radio airplay of her songs received a major push. Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ has now re-entered Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart this week at number 7.
I the process, the hit single also forced the magazines to adjust the way it handles the catalogue tracks on the chart. According to the trend, the catalogue songs tracks will be frequently aired on the contemporary radio months or the years after their earlier debut becomes ineligible for the Hot 100.
Billboard moves them to various recurrent charts once they have been on the charts for 20 weeks and have fallen below the position 50. However, the Billboard director of charts, Silvio Pietroluongo, said in a statement that it will officially be changed.
Silvio added that it is a proper move to allow the older titles posting enough activity to return to the Hot 100 if the ranking in the chart is upper half. Neilson SoundScan said that the track ‘I Will Always Love You’ that topped the Hot 100 for 14 weeks in the year 1992 posted a 6,723 percent increase in the digital sales.
