How Do Pop Music Charts Get Certified?

Love is a beautiful form of emotion. It’s one of the greatest gifts we can give each other. Some say that love is reciprocation or giving up on the love you had when you were a child. But really there ought to be more to love. It’s important for you to search for love based on what you value most.

During teenage, heart-to-heart ought not be thought of as love but consider the real worth. Jesus talked about self-love, when he was on the cross. He said “love the Lord in spirit and love your neighbor as yourself” and we can apply this to spiritual love, which is a gift from God himself.

Jesus talked about self-love and it’s about loving God first. When you have this in your mind then you’ll come to know God is number one and love Him first and foremost instead of someone else. We all need to realize who God is, because we were made in His image and likeness and therefore He deserves our love and respect even more than others.

There are some statistics based on certification alone. We might consider that millions of people were involved in the music business and only a few hundred made it to the top. Do you really think that there’s any meaning to numbers based on certification? Who would’ve thought that an industry that profits on the idea of being number one could have so little integrity? I can’t see why some people are so obsessed with certification while others aren’t interested in anything else.

When you look at the official charts for most artists, you’ll see that they were put in place by their label or manager. But when you talk about artists like Rihanna, who has the Schweizer HitParade chart title, or Bruno Mars with the big red “BRAVO” tattoo, it seems as though it’s all about labels. Why do labels put out phenomenal pop songs and sell millions of records with them? It’s because they know that it sells. It’s because people want to hear that song, and it helps their careers. They don’t care about anything else other than making sure that it makes it to the top of the charts.

You know what’s real? Music isn’t about certifications, rankings, or any of that. It’s about connecting on a human level with someone, something that transcends the barriers of race, education, and even comfort. The great thing about this new millennium is that artists can be judged on more than just their music, they can be judged on how well they market themselves, on what they have to offer to the world around them, on the power of their words and their performances, on what kind of billboards they have out there that people go gaga over.
