Welcome to the 2019 edition of the Billboard Dance 100 artist rankings. The annual franchise launched in 2018 and received incredible worldwide reception, hearing from 174 countries across all 7 continents. The Billboard Dance 100 has now received nearly a quarter of a million votes in total.
In addition to the fan poll, the Billboard Dance 100 results are informed by both domestic and global charts statistics (streaming, track sales, album sales, and radio airplay) and touring data (show capacities, festival bookings, and residencies), which Billboard’s editorial and charts departments weighed to provide a holistic ranking of the genre’s diverse talents.
Billboard’s staff focused on each artist’s achievements over the past year, while also taking into account their previous history and context. They also employed the classification for acts who would chart on our Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and Top Dance/Electronic Albums charts as a baseline for eligibility, and exercised discretion to ensure the ranking remained relevant to the dance/electronic music community.
