bb_cover.gif Billboard is creating a Hot Ringtones chart, reports according to Fox41.com. It will track the songs that are downloaded to cellphones and are played when the phone rings.

Billboard will collect data from each of the major ringtone distributors and wireless carriers.

The chart will reflect the top 20 polyphonic ringtone sales for each week. It will include song title, artist, previous week’s position and number of weeks on the chart.

The chart will make its debut in the November sixth issue.
