But...How? Harlem Shake To Top Billboard Hot 100 After Rules Change


Baauer Macklemore

For the first time in its 55-year-history , the Billboard Hot 100 will not base its chart on record sales alone, now taking on-board YouTube plays to decide who tops the weekly rundown. The move comes just in time for Baauer's song Harlem Shake, which is expected to make is debut at No.1 this weekend after becoming the latest viral video phenomenon.

The bass heavy hip-hop track got almost no mainstream attention following its release as a free download last May, though its popularity exploded this month after thousands of fans uploaded YouTube videos of themselves dancing along. Around 4,000 Harlem Shake videos are being uploaded each day. "The notion that a song has to sell in order to be a hit feels a little two or three years ago to me," said Billboard's editorial director Bill Werde, "The music business today - much to its credit - has started to learn that there are lots of different ways a song can be a hit, and lots of different ways that the business can benefit from it being a hit."

Just What Is The 'Harlem Shake' And How Did Anderson Cooper Get Caught Up In It?


Anderson Cooper Baauer

Just when you thought you’d seen the back of internet viral dance crazes, as the memory of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ fades into the near-distant past, along comes The Harlem Shake. And it’s not just online, folks. It’s taking over our televisions. Anderson Cooper’s team made him do the Harlem Shake in a team meeting for Anderson Live (“it made me so uncomfortable,” said Cooper). The Today Show anchors have been at it, too, with a Valentine’s-themed Harlem Shake.

So just what is the Harlem Shake and how did it become so popular? The music contained in the video is by New York producer Baauer, notable for its elements of rave and dubstep. Reports of the origin of the craze differ. Wikipedia awards the accolade of starting the craze to YouTube user Filthy Frank. Most of the copycat video (and there have been quite a few) tend to start with just one person in a group dancing along to the tune and then, when the bass drops, the entire group start dancing. Unlike the Gangnam Style videos though, there appears to be no set dance to do along to the Harlem Shake.

According to New York Daily News, 12,000 Harlem Shake videos have been uploaded to YouTube, with over 44 million views attributed to them.
