Chart Explain 2/10/20

Songs on the Move include Holy Water from We The Kingdom, Almost Home from MercyMe and both versions of Waymaker, from Michael W. Smith and Leeland. We The Kingdom and MercyMe increase within the Top 5, while each version of Waymaker would be knocking on Top 10 separately, but this week together hit #6.
Other notables this week include Jordan Feliz ‘Faith’, Sidewalk Prophets ‘Smile’ and Big Daddy Weave’s ‘I Know,’ each song raising its point levels to reach Top 15 on this chart, which highlights songs with genuine momentum.
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.
