Dear colleagues, partners and friends!
Top Hit 3.0 is gradually being developed. And here’s one more new
opportunity of the website – the artist or the producer can share own song or
music video on Vkontakte, Facebook or Twitter right from tophit.ru. Then
Odnoklassniki and other sites of music fans’ mass gathering will follow.
From now on one can acquaint their friends, partners and subscribers with
new music, and they, in their turn, will have a chance to watch the video or
listen to the song as well as vote for the new hit! The upgrade and the full
development of the service will have been finally over by April, and it’s not
The next annual Top Hit Music Awards ceremony will take place in
the end of April. On that day, besides awarding artists and producers for their

days: St. Valentine’s Day, Defender of the Fatherland Day, Women’s
Day… We remind all our partners on radio that tophit.ru ID section includes
a huge library of congrats from the most popular Russian and foreign artists,
and there are hundreds of the holiday-related songs, marked with special tags,
in Hot Music and Track Archive of the website. Don’t forget to refresh your
radio air and send a request-letter to Maria Krylova for getting
the IDs of those artists, which your holiday air especially lacks.

of separate hits, artists, producers and labels in 2014 as well as demonstrate

with radio and record labels now but also a piece of advice on what the
management of radio, TV, labels and the field-oriented investors should do to
re-structure their work or business to meet the demands of the set-in streaming

The moment, when we start publication of streaming charts on
tophit.ru as well as the consolidated chart ‘radio air + streaming’, is not

the world-known streaming major starts publication of its chart on tophit.ru, the
most prominent local online mediums – vkontakte, 101.ru, Yandex.Music,
Clipyou.ru, ivi.ru, etc. will follow in the footsteps, and we’ll make a big
consolidated streaming chart.
