Top 10 Soca | April 20th - 26th

Top Ten Chart via COTT/Facebook © COTT
The 'Top 10' radio plays for April 20th to 26th is here and with it comes some head scratching. COTT tracks radio plays to compile the list of songs, but the question remains the same: how do radio stations determine which songs to play and how often to play them? Is it done via fan requests or by radio personalities or individual show producers? Can someone shed some light to legitimize the charting?

OK, now that I got that off my chest, let's take a look at this week's chart. Engine Room has dropped down to second place making room for "Mood" by Shaggy featuring Kes. Last week's number seven song, "Long Live Soca" by Voice has dropped off the chart as well as "Stage Is Yuh Name" by Fay-Ann Lyons. Two songs have debuted in the top ten; "Jub Jub" by Kes comes in at number 10 while "The Spirit" by Machel Montano comes in at number eight. What do you think about the current state of the chart and the charting process as it relates to what takes place at radio stations? Leave a comment... the songs can be heard via our YouTube player posted below. 

How COTT generates the chart:
Our chart is informed by data obtained from VERICAST - the software used by COTT to capture this and other types of musical data. The chart represents the local radio play of our members and, does not include music created by non-members. We monitor approx. 34 stations during this process. The data is then tabulated on a weekly basis, and the top 10 songs played across all stations make up the #TOP10.
