Spain has lost their albums chart due to COVID-19

Spain will no longer be tracking or releasing their albums chart for the time being due to Coronavirus’s impact on sales.

The impacts of the Coronavirus are without a doubt being felt around the world and now even music charting is being affected. Spanish music industry organisation Promusicae have announce that their albums chart is being put on hold.

Spain has been one of the worst hit by the Coronavirus pandemic and was the second country in Europe to go into nationwide lockdown. As such their industries have been heavily affected by the pandemic in the past month having to run with less workers, arrange remote working, or entirely shut up shop for the time being.

Spain’s album charts are still measured on physical sales and as such the figures have been close to entirely obliterated. On speaking to Billboard, a spokesperson for Promusicae said that they will return the charts once the government lifts the lockdown and they will introduce streaming figures to the chart as well.
