Bob Marley's birthday sends reggae legend up Billboard Social 50 Chart


KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Celebration of Bob Marley's birthday sent the reggae legend flying up Billboard's Social 50 chart this week, according to a report on billboard.com.


Billboard says that Marley's birthday on February 6 was marked by a social awareness campaign #BobMarleyWeek resulting in the reggae singer moving from 35 to 14 on the chart, his highest rank since October 12 last year, when he was at No 11.

The Social 50 ranks the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace, and Instagram, Billboard explains.

“#BobMarleyWeek encouraged fans to use their webcams and upload their own Bob Marley tribute videos to a special Website where they can interact with other Marley fans. The best videos uploaded (as determined by the contest organisers) will be released as a part of a special tribute video,” Billboard says adding that Marley's Facebook has 55 million followers.

Meanwhile Shakira in her third week in a row at No 1, riding on the success of her new single, ‘Can't Forget to Remember You’, Billboard says. Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus remain at No 2 and 3 respectively.

Eminem makes a jump into the top 10 (from13 to 7), and Ariana Grande (No 8) and One Direction (No 9) each held their positions. Beyonce fell from 7 to 10.
