AI-Powered Hit Song Analytics Platform ChartCipher Completes Beta Phase


Launched last year by MyPart and Hit Songs Deconstructed, the platform uses analytics from 10 of Billboard’s most popular charts.

AI-powered hit song analytics platform ChartCipher has successfully completed its beta phase and is now accessible to the public, MyPart and Hit Songs Deconstructed jointly announced on Tuesday (Oct. 10).

“Our mission is to empower music creatives and industry professionals with comprehensive, real-time insights into the DNA of today’s most successful songs, and the trends shaping the music charts,” said Hit Songs Deconstructed co-founder Yael Penn in a statement. “Streams, engagement, and other performance metrics only tell part of the story. ChartCipher is the missing link. It provides comprehensive data reflecting the compositional, lyrical and sonic qualities fueling today’s charts.”

Added Hit Songs Deconstructed co-founder David Penn, “The correlations we can now draw between songwriting and production, spanning various genres and charts, offer unprecedented insights that have the potential to significantly enhance both the creative journey and the decision-making process.”

“ChartCipher’s beta phase confirmed that our AI analytics provide invaluable insights to music creatives and decision-makers,” said MyPart CEO Matan Kollenscher. “From selecting singles through exploring remix and collaboration opportunities to optimizing marketing investments and maximizing catalog utilization, ChartCipher equips users with unique, actionable data vital to making better informed business and creative decisions and understanding the musical landscape.”

Launched in April 2022, ChartCipher combines MyPart’s AI-powered analysis of songs’ compositional, lyrical and sonic qualities with Hit Songs Deconstructed’s analytics delivery platform and song analysis methodologies to offer real-time insights into the qualities that fuel today’s most popular music. The platform utilizes analytics from 10 of Billboard‘s most prominent charts going back to the turn of the century: the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Country Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, Pop Airplay, Country Airplay, Streaming Songs, Radio Songs and Digital Song Sales.

“Billboard has consistently led the way in global music charts, and we are thrilled to introduce ChartCipher with analytics for 10 of their most prominent charts,” added Yael Penn. “Our longstanding relationship with Billboard, spanning over a decade, marks the start of an exciting new chapter. Together, we aim to provide even deeper, more actionable insights into the driving forces behind today’s most successful songs.”

Gary Trust, senior director of charts at Billboard, added, “Spotlighting ChartCipher’s intriguing insights about the sonic makeup of hit songs further rounds out Billboard’s coverage. We’re excited to add even more analysis of popular charting songs to our reporting on streaming, radio airplay and sales data, as provided by Luminate.”

To celebrate its official launch, ChartCipher has created a Billboard Hot 100 quiz available to anyone who would like to test their knowledge of the compositional, lyrical and production qualities driving the chart.
