We recently witnessed the reconstruction of Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (formerly known as: Hot Black Singles, Hot R&B Singles and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks). Many people strongly objected to this change because it appears to put artist who cater to strictly R&B audiences at a disadvantage. Cross-over artists that receive mainstream support now qualify as forefront contenders to dominate the R&B charts over acts that may garner heavy rotation from mainly R&B outlets. Digital single sales are counted towards every artists chart placement, however, those artists that reach wider audiences whose songs wouldn't necessarily be classified as R&B may make the biggest dent on those charts now.
