Plus, part two of our chat with award-winning songwriter Justin Tranter.
Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
This week, Gary and Trevor are joined by Billboard senior editor Andrew Unterberger to discuss the best of 2018 on the charts in the year's first six months. Who's been the MVP? What hits should've been bigger? And, what trend stories may have gone under the radar? From BTS to Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Drake, Ella Mai and more, Gary, Trevor and Andrew muse about the year in music so far and what's ahead.
