|Just another quick update to keep you posted about what's happening on BEA. The 2017 year chart is taking shape and DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar is currently the big leader, and is looking likely to match the achievement of 2015's To Pimp A Butterfly and 2012's Good Kid, M.A.A.D City (which secured top spots in their respective year charts).
As mentioned in previous updates, BEA is being completely revamped in the background so that it has a modern look and feel, and behaves better across different types of device (e.g. tablets and phones). This development process is taking significantly longer than first envisaged, primarily because the existing site has to be looked after alongside (and there's plenty of background tasks that need to happen on a regular basis to ensure the existing site runs smoothly).
The re-design is being worked on every day and steady progress is being made, so it's just a question of when this will be finished rather than if but it's likely to be sometime in 2018 (it's not a small undertaking) and you'll likely see site updates before this happens as the existing code is upgraded to support the new site.
As always, thanks for visiting the site and more soon.
