Chart Explain 2/28/2022
It could have easily been Jordan St. Cyr and Danny Gokey in the Top 3 Songs on the Move this week, as the songs on the rise have been consistent for weeks on end now. Because I can only pick three, Crowder got the nod for a 6th straight week, making his way to the top spot, in what has been one of the most steady, slower paced treks to the top. Ryan Ellis continues to gain traction and places on the chart, rolling from #9 to #4, and Jordan Feliz gets noticed with a nice move from 13* tp 11*.
Because music is making a major shift at this present time, be sure not to judge any titles that appear to be going down in momentum according to this chart, when they are beyond healthy on the airplay chart, for example, Katy Nichole couldn’t be stronger, but there are many titles that will need to move out of the way for her to see another surge as she has the last couple of weeks.
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.
