Norway adds streaming sales to official album chart

Tom Pakinkis

Norway has integrated streaming figures into its official album chart, becoming the second territory in the world to do so.

Streaming sales have been included in Norway’s singles chart since spring 2011. Neighbouring Sweden announced a combined album chart last month.

The integration took effect on Friday, November 1 with the country’s album chart having up until then only included physical and download sales.

The streaming figures are taken from Wimp and Spotify.
