SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 1/28/19
You have to give it to Hillsong Worship “Who You Say I Am,” has been the song that showed up on Moneyball in April 2018, didn’t start seeing much airplay until the Fall, but today overtakes Lauren Daigle as this week’s #1.
Songs On The Move this week include Josh Baldwin who hasn’t given up any momentum since before the Christmas break, We Are Messengers who had a strong surge during that break and Zach Williams whose newest single has its best two weeks since the song’s release.
Other notables are Chris Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You and Crowder’s Red Letter, a song that Consumption charts show connects with each spin on stations who have jumped in to support.
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 [email protected]
