Mathematicians Discover Secret Formula For Writing A Hit Song

Though math is usually used to tell you if a song was a hit based on sales, scientists from the University of Bristol believe they have “The Hit Equation.” A group focused on artificial intelligence developed machine learning algorithms that mined the characteristics of top hits to develop a formula for key musical features that determine whether a song will be a hit.

The lads at the Intelligent Systems Lab, armed with the power of math, identified 23 features that were considered important from tempo and loudness to harmonic simplicity vs. non-harmonicity.
