Leading song analysis platforms MyPart and Hit Songs Deconstructed have partnered to launch a new platform that promises to deliver “the next generation” of analytics for hit songs, as defined by Billboard’s charts, the companies announced Thursday (April 28).
Dubbed ChartCipher, the new platform fuses MyPart’s AI-powered analysis of songs’ compositional, lyrical and sonic qualities with Hit Songs Deconstructed’s own song analysis methodologies to produce deep, real-time insights into the characteristics that drive today’s most successful music.
At launch, ChartCipher will include analytics for 11 of Billboard’s most popular charts: the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Country Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, Hot Latin Songs, Pop Airplay, Country Airplay, Streaming Songs, Radio Songs and Digital Song Sales.
“For the first time ever, music creators and executives will have access to deep analytics reflecting the songwriting and production decisions behind today’s most successful songs at scale,” said Hit Songs Deconstructed co-founder David Penn in a statement.
The company’s other co-founder, Yael Penn, added, “We’ve had a longstanding relationship with Billboard through Hit Songs Deconstructed for over a decade and are delighted to start this new chapter together to deliver even deeper insight into what’s driving today’s most successful songs.”
Gary Trust, senior director of charts at Billboard, added, “We look forward to spotlighting ChartCipher’s insights, adding new analysis about a key and intriguing musical component – the sonic makeup of hit songs – to our longstanding coverage of charts and their underlying streaming, radio airplay, sales information and more, as provided by Luminate, formerly MRC Data.”
ChartCipher will deliver its inaugural presentation at Music Biz 2022 in Nashville on May 11 at 12:30 p.m. (Learn more here.) During the second half of May, the platform will also launch an invitation-only beta. To be considered for the beta, visit ChartCipher.com and apply by May 16.
