The king is dead, long live the king
In the new year, some exciting things for chart lovers are going to happen…
This European Border Breakers Chart will be rebranded as Music Moves Europe Talent Chart. It will be a tool to decide which emerging European artists will qualify to win a Music Moves Europe Talent Award – as the jury for the award will still have the final say.
In order to conform to the rules of the Talent Award, the chart rules will be slightly amended. We noticed that the time period for a European artist to break through in the rest of Europe sometimes takes longer than two years from initial release – so now we take into account 36 months instead of 24 months. This could mean that some acts will re-appear in the chart – good news!
