About twice a month, maybe more, we’re going to publish the What’s Hot Right Now playlist mix. The way we calculate what’s hot is by analyzing our web statistics of which songs people are listening to and downloading the most, and then comparing those to additional resources like The Hype Machine, Elbo.ws, and other aggregators and popular music blogs to come up with a list that depicts the hottest songs on the web (not what’s hot on Billboard or radio).
You can view previous installments of What’s Hot Right Now too, and browse our weekly Top Ten Songs page.
