Chart Explain 4/25/2022
Katy Nicole and Jordan Feliz continue to fight forward holding onto the first and second spots on the charts, while recurrents and songs that have already surged remain in the Top 5. While songs that have peaked on the airplay charts continue to fill up the Top 5, three songs that top the momentum this week are Blessing Offor, Jon Reddick and Riley Clemmons.
Due to delayed sales and consumption information, don’t bat an eye at the moves of Cain and FK&C. Those two songs are extremely healthy and have a predicted huge bounce coming back to them in the next week.
Thank you for your faithfulness to this weekly chart and the continued dialogue.
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.
