What Is the Last Day to Report to Soundscan?

  • Updated

Billboard Chart weeks run from Friday - Thursday. This is why albums are released on Fridays.

Physical Records

However, because Nielsen allows time for shipping/receipt by customers - the last day physical record sales can be counted for the first chart week is the Monday after release.

Digital Records

The last day for digital records to be counted on the new chart week is the following Thursday.

For a detailed explanation and a calendar example, please check out our dedicated SoundScan reporting article.
