Billboard, the world’s most trusted music brand, today unveiled the new Billboard.com – the ultimate music entertainment destination for fans around the world. The new Billboard.com provides visitors with incredible music discovery opportunities through unprecedented access to historical and current Billboard charts across all genres of music, comprehensive artist information, exclusive music content and touring news, dynamic editorial features, unique chart-based products and social media integration.
“Billboard.com delivers a truly exciting and immersive experience for both passionate and casual music fans,” said Howard Appelbaum, Publisher of Billboard. “The new site showcases the power of Billboard’s unique assets, and further establishes Billboard’s position as a leading, global consumer music brand.”
The heart and soul of Billboard.com are the legendary Billboard charts that are brought to life on the new site. Billboard’s exclusive music charts – the foundation of the Billboard brand – were also used to develop fun, consumer-friendly, chart-based products for the new site.
Visitors can also receive the latest music news from Billboard’s world-renowned editorial team via “The Feed” – a news feed prominently featured on the Billboard.com homepage, read Billboard editorial reviews and listen to new songs in the New Releases section of the site, and search for concerts in the Live section with “The Tour Finder” – a live music navigation tool powered by Jambase’s live music and concert information. The new site, designed by Razorfish – the company responsible for such major sites as cnn.com, nytimes.com and xmradio.com, also now features social networking communities that enable Billboard.com members to create their own music experience.
