Chart Explanation 9-4-17

Elevation Worship climbs back to the top spot, followed by Zach Williams.  MercyMe goes back to #3, finally showing signs of weariness.  Matthew West and NeedtoBreathe round out the Top 5. 

Danny Gokey continues a forward surge to #6.

For King & Country “O God Forgive Us” surges to the top of the Songs On The Move this week helped out by an elevation of spins at K-LOVE.  Hillsong United “Wonder” puts it together for good gains this week and Ms. Daigle with O’ Lord, showing gains like her past singles have seen.

Casting Crowns starts a quick descent.

North Point InsideOut “Death Was Arrested,” hits #1 at WAY-FM.

LeCrae featuring Tory Kelly debuts mostly due to sales from airplay at pop and rhythm stations in the general market, but certainly worth noting.

Skillet “Lions” hits #1 at Air1, and gets added to KLOVE, while showing strong streaming numbers as well.

The Moneyball Chart Methodology

Instead of one chart that focuses specifically on airplay, the Moneyball Chart combines airplay with sales, streaming and research for the purpose of finding the Momentum in Music, which is most times the differentiator on songs that stall and the ones that continue to chug along.

The Moneyball Chart is created based on a points system, where each column of information can add a maximum of up to 10 points for that column, with the points from each column adding to the overall totals.

The Moneyball Chart is an indicator of songs that are working; songs that are bearing fruit and therefore the Moneyball Chart, may have drastic differences from the charts you have become accustom to, revealing some artists and titles in a higher position much earlier than they show up on the airplay charts, and also, often songs that have moved to recurrent on most of our playlists continue to show fruit indicating that we may have retired those titles too early.

The Moneyball system works Nationally, or locally, so if you are interested in seeing what this information looks like specific to your station, specific to your market and your competitive situation, let us create a custom sample for your station specifically.  Email Rob Wagman
