Chart Explain 5/25/20
Cory Asbury ties for the top spot, but how Moneyball works is that if two songs match in points, the one that has the greater increase that week gets the higher position. That is what happened with Cory this week, as Michael W. Smith with positive point gains shows the beginning of the descent. And what an impressive run.
Big Daddy Weave and Jeremy Camp make 1 position gains in a week when moving at all is a difficult task. Lauren Daigle has a nice surge from 15 to inside the Top 10 at #9.
Bethel Music’s “Goodness of God” has its best week yet, climbing from 22 to 15.
Debuts this week include Phil Wickham and Casting Crowns as Re-Entries and I Am They finding the chart for the first time. Songs to watch include Hope Darst “Peace Be Still” and For King & Country “Together.”
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.
