Darren Choy, Chairman of RIM and Managing Director of Warner Music Malaysia, highlighted the industry’s view on the outcome of the digital music charts.

"A year has passed and the continuation of RIM Charts had proved it significance. We have seen a substantial growth in total number of streams weekly as more Malaysian music listeners are consuming music on digital platforms. It is also great to see some of our locally produced music are now standing high on the charts with other international artistes due to the strong support from Malaysian music listeners. We hope that the transparency of RIM Charts will continue to add value to music creators in developing their music as well as educating the public about the current trends on the digital music market”.

RIM Charts is the only industry-recognised digital charts in Malaysia that tracks the highest streamed tracks each week. The charts focus on the Top 20 most streamed International and Domestic songs and Top 10 most streamed Domestic songs in Malaysia. The Charts are calculated from the data report submitted by major digital music providers such as Apple Music, Spotify, KKBOX and Deezer. The official RIM Chart will be issued every Friday through RIM's website and social media platforms. It will record the rankings of digital streaming occurring in the week before.

 

In addition, the chart complies with the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) general guideline for chart generation as below.

1.   For the streaming charts, both paid tier (premium) and free tier (ad-supported) streams are included.

2.   Purely non-interactive streaming and algorithm based programming is excluded from the charts.

3.   Airplay or internet simulcasting is excluded from the charts.

4.   Playlists created by third parties is included in the charts.

5.   Streams that play for less than 30 seconds is excluded from the charts.

6.   Certain on-demand streaming services offer radio features (e.g. Spotify’s radio feature) that are semi-interactive/algorithm based. These steams do not count towards the charts.

7.   For streaming-only charts, all streams have the same weight.
