NEW YORK -- Using an algorithm which parses one million records per day, the MTV Music Meter provides a ranking of the the most talked about and fast moving tunes.

For each artist in the ranking, the Meter provides music to purchase along with news, tweets and video. The platform also provides a "Pandora-like" function which provides links to music suggestions or other artists.

The MTV Music Meter goes live today on the Web. It will launch on Apple iOS and Google Android devices in January, according to Bloomberg News.

For an explanation and demo we visited with MTV digital head Dermot McCormack at the MTV headquarters in Times Square.
