Welcome to the new episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, your one-stop-shop for all things pop on Billboard’s weekly charts. In addition, you can always count on a lively discussion about the latest pop news, fun chart stats and stories, new music, and guest interviews with music stars and folks from the world of pop.
Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Billboard deputy editor, digital, Katie Atkinson every week on the Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to the previous Tuesday’s edition of the show on Billboard.com).
On the latest show, we’ve got news about PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” hitting yet another milestone on YouTube (3 billion views!), the passing of the chart-topping David Cassidy, and a preview of our Women in Music event this week where we’re honoring Selena Gomez as our woman of the year, along with many other leading ladies.
Plus, in charts news, Taylor Swift’s Reputation does something no one has done in four months on the Billboard 200, while Portugal. The Man sets an all-time longevity record on the Alternative Songs chart with its smash hit “Feel It Still.” Lastly, can Pentatonix’s A Pentatonix Christmas — which led the Billboard 200 back in January — make a return trip to No. 1? The album is surging back up the list, and could very well jump back to the top as the holiday season kicks into full swing.
