and Shazam searches, as well as contemporary and historical data from Billboard, the Official Charts Company, GfK, and more.
Music ID Revenue tracks the worldwide top earning recordings of the 21st century, revealing the most successful artists, singles, and albums of the last twenty years.
With data going back to 1900, Music ID Impact provides a meta-narrative of popular music history, supplying research data on the top artists, songs, and albums for every year, for every decade.
