YouTube streams now count towards the US chart. May god have mercy on our souls.

Harlem Shake - the Gangnam Style for people who thought what we really needed was another Gangnam Style - is currently sitting at the top of the Billboard Charts, in large part because YouTube streaming plays have started to count towards US chart positions.

It used to take a bunch of sales to get to number one. Now, you just need to have a bunch of people clicking on a Twitter link.
