SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 2/4/19
Casting Crowns benefits from a couple of songs moving down while their increased momentum has them jumping over Known from Tauren Wells, whom also rises.
The other two Songs on the Move are We Are Messengers Maybe It’s Okay and the debut of For King & Country’s God Only Knows, which is this week’s greatest gaining song.
Impressive and beyond noteworthy is the reality of Sanctus Real’s Confidence, which continues to resurge in airplay, dominate in research and gain the trust of programmers that are willing to admit that they missed one that was real. It is.
Much like Confidence, Francesca Battistelli’s The Breakup Song continues to have great gains in airplay, giving the song new life in its recurrent phase to keep it active on this chart.
Songs that work when you play them, both Chris Tomlin’s Nobody Loves Me Like You and Crowder’s Red Letter are quick connectors showing strong early research and connection from airplay to sales wherever they get spun.
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]
