The folks at Music Power charts have released their Folk Rock for December of 2020 with The Boss taking the top spot at 143.6 Million spins overall, though I'm not real sure he should be on this chart as his music is definitely a lot more rock than folk. Bruce Springsteen is followed at a distance by The Lumineers with approximatley half the spins at 76.2M with Van Morrison behind them. There's a notable increase from Phoebe Bridgers rising quickly up the chart to the #7 spot with an impressive 32.6 Million spins. With everything going on around her, I expect to see a substantial increase over the coming weeks. Other notable climbers include Wilco, Andrew Bird and Josh Ritter.

What are the Music Power Charts and how do they rank songs?
The method used by Music Power charts to determine chart postion is described below.
1. All streams are created equal. This chart counts all streams on all platforms; on demand and programmed, to give you the true number of how many plays an artist gets. US originated streams and sales only are counted at this time. Total streams are show on the chart in millions.
2. Only living artists with a new song or album in the last three years are included.
3. Genres sub-genres, moods and scenes rule. Smaller scenes deserve charts too.
4. An album sale counts as 1500 streams. A digital single sale counts as 150 streams.
We here at MusicBizHub absolutely love the way that Music Power Charts have stepped up to provide charts for many of the genres that get paid less attention to. Genres like Dancehall, Shoegaze, Alternative RandB, Folk Rock, Southern Hip-Hop, Jam, Female Emcees, Transformational Roots and more as well as charts that are specific to certain companies within the music industry like agencies, management companies etc. We will continue to bring you these charts as often as they are published, which at the current rate is a few times per week.
