Billboard no longer allowing tour & merch bundles



Billboard announced today it would no longer allow artists to bundle their singles and albums with merch and tour ticket bundles, but allow users to add an album to their merch order for an additional cost.

The practice of bundling singles with merchandise has been a tactic exploited by artists such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and 6ix9ine to inflate their Hot 100 performance.

The rule change will take effect this Fall, with Billboard declaring, "Single-priced 'bundles' will no longer count, as "all albums bundled with either merchandise or concert tickets must be promoted as an add-on to those purchases in order to be counted on the charts."
