    so it's also fandom driven? it's a fair game then

    may the best man/woman win lol

  • Downloads have always counted towards the Melon charts but I assume it's only a small percentage.

    OT: The gap was at 383 ULs, which is the lowest it's gone thus far, but then it started increasing :pepepizza:

    Its bigger

    Dls(60%) than Streaming (40%)

    Very hard to breakthrough since its comes down to the size of fanbases


    Butter takes the lead again rn (Gap 1,596)

    This will be a long game

    I'm gonna stop anticipating hopefully we have a happy ending like Flo

  • Hasn't this changed with the reform though? Streaming doesn't count for the charts anymore.



    This is like watching paint dry tbh, I'm also going to stop anticipating and hope for the best. :shake-it:

    Yes let's do that :pepe-sad:

  • next level surpassed butter in uls last night but next level still havent gotten #1 on 24hits... weird

    Yep, this is shady af ngl.


    Since when are "downloads" separate from "unique listener"? UL includes both streaming and downloads. Otherwise, if UL only includes streams, then one Melon account can be counted twice, once as a UL streaming and once for downloads. This totally destroys the whole point of the chart reform, to prevent fandom shenanigans like this.

    This. I smell some weird ass voodoo going on


    It just learned that yesterday

  • next level surpassed butter in uls last night but next level still havent gotten #1 on 24hits... weird


    No, its not shady or weird. As one user here pointed out it's 40% Uls + 60% Dls. Its not something added last minute. Many artists topped #1 with less Uls than #2 rank in past.

    Yes,

    the most stupid thing its just majority of us only knew about this rule yesterday including big charts accs

    :cryingr:

    So no one else to blame but ourselves

    Not shady at all

    It has always been streaming + download


    In the past, there was many instances when a song with lower ULs ranked higher on 24hits.


    People need to stop calling a chart system shady jsut because their fave couldnt hit #1. And dont call a chart shady when you dont know the mechanism

  • For those who do not know how Melon works and think this is the first time it happened, you can see it happened to Dynamite too. It lost the number 1 spot despite a UL gap of around 18k more than Don't Touch Me.

    Yesterday the highest the negative gap reached was just 2k ULs before Butter started reclaiming that gap, so its not like any massive downloads were even needed to keep Butter at 1.


    You all can see firsthand how Butter is charting today morning when gp effect comes into play. It has more ULs than Next Level in every update and now has more overall ULs.


    Accept it that Butter has the gp and so it has higher ULs today morning.

    This is not shady at all, it's not Melon's fault that y'all learned that downloads added to the chart just now. Y'all need to stop throwing around these random accusations just because you don't know how these charts work.


    Mess at us making this entire thread about Next Level vs Butter only for Brave Girls to probably win at the end.
