New music triumphs on the Soundnet Jukebox Chart

Recent chart releases have once again shot into this week’s top 30 most selected jukebox tracks, showing the significant impact regular playlist updates can have on jukebox profit levels.

Understanding the importance of keeping track of current music trends, each week Soundnet compiles a chart of the 30 most popular tracks on jukeboxes across the country. The Jukebox Chart provides crucial insight into what customers want from their local jukebox, and this week’s chart is no exception.

The 30 most selected tracks for the week are almost entirely dominated by tracks from the Official UK Singles Chart, with last week’s Official Chart number 1, La La La by Naughty Boy featuring Sam Smith, reaching fourth place in the rankings. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams also makes it into the Jukebox Chart, despite only having been released last Sunday.

The rapid rise in popularity of these tracks on jukeboxes across the country represents a major opportunity for venue owners to boost cash box takings by providing new-music loving regulars with the latest hits. However, it also means any delay in adding new releases to the jukebox can lead to lost revenues, as pub-goers rapidly move on to new songs.

To keep pace with these fast-moving musical trends, Soundnet’s digital jukebox packages include twice-weekly online automatic updates to the jukebox library. Thanks to Soundnet’s exclusive partnership with the Official Charts Company, this includes every one of the UK’s top 40 singles for the week, as well as full album releases from the artists of the moment.

Staying yet another step ahead, Soundnet jukeboxes also offer a pre-release feature, with certain tracks available on the jukebox before they even go on sale to the public, encouraging pubgoers to check the jukebox for a first-look at upcoming hits.

Take a look at this week’s full Soundnet Jukebox Chart for more information on the tracks that have caught the attention of UK consumers this week.
