Sverigetopplistan, is the Swedish national record chart, earlier known as Topplistan (1975–1997) and Hitlistan (1998–2007) and known by its current name since October 2007, based on sales data from the Swedish Recording Industry Association (in Swedish Grammofonleverantörernas förening). Before Topplistan, music sales in Sweden were recorded by Kvällstoppen,[1] whose weekly chart was a combined albums and singles list.

History[edit]

For the period of 1976 to 2006, the official Swedish Music Charts was published by Sveriges Radio P3, a station owned by Sveriges Radio. At the end of 2006, it stopped publishing the general charts, which were entrusted to Swedish Recording Industry Association in the beginning of 2007. However, Sveriges Radio P3 continued to publish the most downloaded music charts, according to the statistics compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. The new strictly-download chart was called DigiListan.

Since late 2006, the chart has included legal downloads. On October 29, 2010 the chart became the first in the world to include music streaming.[2]

Charts published[edit]

Until 28 October 2004, charts were published weekly on Fridays. At that date, the publication day was moved to Thursday, until end of 2008. However, the chart reverted to Fridays in January 2009 for a period of two years. Then, in January 2011, the publication day was moved to Monday.

Currently, the following charts are included:

  • Singles Top 60
  • Albums Top 60
  • DVDs Top 20
  • Ringtones Top 20

From 1976 to 2006, the sales chart was broadcast on Sveriges Radio P3. P3 only presents sales data for digital downloads (DigiListan), tracked by Nielsen SoundScan, since 2007.
