Chart Explain 8/10/20
Zach Williams continues to grow as the shine on the two songs around him this week begins to weaken. While FK&C continue on top, there is a clear decline in the future which will probably give way to a #1 from Zach in the next week.
Songs on the move all come from one label this week, Capitol, with the strongest uprisings from Kari Jobe, which moves forward, and will continue to do so as Jeremy Camp falls out of the Top 5 next week.
Danny Gokey sees quick research at many stations and airplay explosions begin across the format jettisoning Love God, Love People just outside of the Top 5.
Chris Tomlin’s Who You Are To Me breaks the Top 15, while Thank You Lord sees a nice re-entry based on undeniable consumption.
Revolutionary from Josh Wilson debuts impressively at #14.
Notable is Tauren Wells re-entering the chart at #17.
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.
