Rolling Stone has announced they’ll be released their own version of popular music charts that people tend to follow Billboard for, and we’re excited to see what may come of it and how they’ll be released.
The list of the charts they’ve announced are below, and the spoiler alerts are towards the end of that list with the news that they’ll be doing a Trending 25 chart and a Breakthrough 25 chart, both of which will show the songs and vibes that are growing the charts quickly or have shown up on the charts for the first time, which is a great way to see what new music is coming into the world and what you may want to follow in the future.
