Billboard's weekly video show "Real-Time Rewind" recaps the past week's hottest action on the new Billboard Real-Time Twitter Charts. Joe Levy returns for Episode 41, which features Meghan Trainor, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, Robin Thicke and Kendrick Lamar.
No TV show ever impacted Billboard's charts like "Glee." In fact, few music acts overall have reached the chart heights that Glee did in its six-year run. The Fox show's likable cast arrived as wide-eyed chart freshmen and leaves with honors befitting those of a valedictorian.
Glee comes to an end tonight, six seasons, 15 albums, and seven EPs after its debut. The cast's success on the charts paved the way for shows like Empire and Nashville -- but, out of all the classic Glee covers, which did fans love (and buy) the most? Here are the top ten most downloaded Glee original cast recordings.
Two classic tracks (from two very different genres) experience a resurgence in popularity due to their inclusion in two popular videos on YouTube which soared in popularity during the charting week (ending March 15).
In the same week that the first season of Fox TV's musical drama Empire ended, its soundtrack debuts at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, making it the first TV series soundtrack to crown the 50-year old list.
