PJ CHARTS MAY 2024 ܤ in full bloom ܤ reveals done!

Welcome to the

PJ CHARTS MAY 2024 ܤ in full bloom ܤ

May continues what has been a truly overwhelming Spring for pop fans - this time we have the long awaited third albums by a pair of icons, Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish, plus new releases from the likes of aespa, Ana Mena, Angus & Julia Stone, beabadoobee, Bebe Rexha, Beth Gibbons, Charli XCX, Empire Of The Sun, Florrie, ionnalee, Kacy Hill, Leigh-Anne, Loreen, Mabel, Miley Cyrus, Nelly Furtado, Omar Apollo, Sasha Alex Sloan, Shaznay Lewis and WILLOW, just to name a reasonable twenty. And that's without mentioning all those Eurovision smashes - Dizzy, La Noia, We Will Rave, Zari, Zorra and many more. Truly something for everybody, and who knows what surprises lie in store in the second half of the month. Who will come out on top? That's up to you to decide.

ܤ rules ܤ
  • Send a ballot with your 10 favorite songs and 5 to 10 favorite albums (using the format below) in a PM to @soratami.
  • You can choose to send only songs or albums if you wish.
  • The songs can be singles, album tracks, demos, or anything you want.
  • The albums can be full length, EP, mixtapes or compilations.
  • You cannot submit a ballot entirely full of K-Pop, that's what the K-Pop sub-forum charts are for.
  • The songs and albums can be released whenever, but recent releases have the best chance to make the charts.
  • Your ballot should be what you've been listening to in the past month.
  • Your favorite song/album gets 10 points, scaling all the way down to 1 point.
  • An album or song must have a minimum of two voters to chart.
  • Ties are broken by number of voters, then by highest vote, by quality of vote, then lowest score. If we still can't break parity the entries remain tied.
  • The top five songs each month make the PJ Chart Rate, a modified Eurovision Style contest that runs once a year.
  • You must give BUG by Kacy Hill at least 1 point.

For the people who don't read the rules:

  • You must give BUG by Kacy Hill at least 1 point.

Did anyone watch The Idea Of You? If you've been missing late-career One Direction, the soundtrack might hit the spot. The title track is a bit of a snooze but the rest is fun. Produced by Savan Kotecha!

The Idea Of You (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - August Moon
(or should it go under Various Artists?)

I'm also reserving tentative spots on my album chart for Astrid S (out May 24), Ayra Starr (May 31), and Kiesza (May 24). But it will be hard for anyone to unseat Rachel Chinouriri or Shaznay Lewis.
