Hot Digital Songs


Hot Digital Songs

The Hot Digital Songs chart ranks the best-selling digital singles in the United States, according to Billboard.

Beginning in February 2005, digital sales have been incorporated into many of Billboard's music single charts. It was decided to do so mainly because of the dramatic rise in popularity of the digital market while commercial single sales were becoming negligible.[1] The chart has had 107 number one songs and its current number one as of the issue dated November 26, 2011, is "We Found Love" by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris.[2]
