UKChartsPlus is an independent weekly newsletter about the UK music charts. It was first published in September 2001 as ChartsPlus in order to authoritatively record the official music chart information in the United Kingdom, as compiled by the Official Charts Company. Its publication began after Hit Music which was a sister publication of Music Week ceased publication in May 2001. The new newsletter was established to be totally independent of Music Week, licensing the chart data directly from Official Charts Company and other chart providers.
