For close to a decade, we have tested songs prior to airplay. After testing almost every release for almost a decade, HitPredictor has shown incredible accuracy in determining the hit potential of new songs prior to airplay.
Led by music industry veterans Guy Zapoleon and Rick Bisceglia, HitPredictor over the past decade has become the undisputed #1 brand of predictive music research in the nation. HitPredictor performs online predictive music research with a huge nationwide database of music listeners who rate songs, with results determining their "Hit" potential before they are released to radio. In fact, many of today’s Top 10 charting songs were chosen by radio programmers and record labels as a result of this company’s advance research.
In this time when finding hits is more important than ever, HitPredictor continues to test songs and predict hits, but also to gain insight into what people are thinking right now about artists and new music. We offer a simple and useful way to identify what is new and hot.
HitPredictor Tests Everything
Although many labels, managers, artists and songwriters use our services in advance to help pick their strongest singles, it is important to know that HitPredictor also tests nearly every song before it is released to radio. Everything tested is eligible to make the HitPredictor weekly chart.
Songs are tested online by HitPredictor using multiple listens and a nationwide sample of carefully profiled music consumers. Songs are rated on a 1-5 scale; final results are based on weighted positives. Songs with a score of 65 or more are judged to have Hit potential, although that benchmark number can fluctuate per format based on the strength of available music. Songs are ranked based on airplay detections according to data provided weekly by MediaBase.
