Hit Potential
HitPredictors are songs that score well in pre-testing by a panel of music consumers who are radio listeners. All HitPredictors are chosen by the HitPredictor team, primarily using testing results; however, additional qualifications for HP selection include early indications from other sources that often predict musical success such as social media exposure and early airplay.
