The NCM Charts are compiled using data from Next Big Sound.
Up to 13 different social media platforms can be
connected to an artist's NBS profile.
The more connected sources an artist has, the more fan
activity data that flows into our chart building algorithm.
Artists are encouraged to log in to NBS and make sure
all their social media accounts are correctly linked up.
Creating an NBS account is easy – and free.
In the bottom left of all NCM Artist pages,
you can see the number of connected sources:
