Jana Kramer, the Band Perry, and several other country artists are leading the genre on Billboard’s first-ever real-time chart.

Billboard launched these new, interactive charts on Tuesday, and they’re specifically designed to work with how users share and interact with music via Twitter.

With the help of fans, the most popular songs in the U.S. are ranked by their Twitter popularity in real time. The first of the charts, the Billboard Trending 140, provides up-to-the-minute ranking of songs shared in the U.S., and it’s measured by the song’s acceleration over the past hour.

Kramer’s ‘Love’ is currently sitting at No. 4, while TBP’s fiery hit ‘Chainsaw‘ and Jerrod Niemann‘s knee-slapping song ‘Donkey‘ help lead country’s position on the charts.

According to Billboard, song shares are tracked and incorporated into the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts through several different ways, including the use of a link to the song via a listening platform like Spotify, Vevo, and iTunes; hashtags along with the song or artist name, and using various terms associated with the song, with words like ‘music,’ ‘song’ or ‘track.’

If you want to see your favorite country superstar or newcomer atop these charts, be sure to get on Twitter and watch their song rise to the top!
