Vice.com reports on dance hit prediction model

The magazine Vice.com reported on the research I conducted with David Martens and Kenneth Sörensen at the University of Antwerp on dance hit prediction.

"Hit songs are getting so predictable. No, literally. The recipe for what makes a pop or dance song a hit has apparently become so formulaic, a computer algorithm can predict with above-average accuracy the likelihood that a song will top the charts."
