Quick follow-up to my last post: my father’s been developing a professional tool called TimeStory, built for visualizing timelines easily and aesthetically. It’s perfect for the Billboard analysis I was doing:
Timelines represent the span between artists’ first and last weeks on the Billboard 100, up to last month. Artists are ranked by their total presence on the Billboard, which makes Drake’s reign at the top even more impressive considering how short he’s been around.
If you have TimeStory, you can download the file from my Google Drive and scroll through the list of all top 200 artists to compare. If you don’t, you can still see or download the raw data as a spreadsheet.
