Chart Explain 4/29/19
While there are some signs that show potential slowing for God Only Knows by For King & Country from the airplay perspective, there just isn’t a song presently in play that can overtake this monstrous hit.
The greatest attempts at overtaking FK&C this week come from Pat Barrett, Danny Gokey and I Am They, all of which have great momentum but none that can presently mathematically do it.
While The Afters show some slowing in airplay, Moneyball still shows great momentum, tracking from 17 to 13.
Switch remains at 14 and number 15 this week is Bethel Music’s
“Raise a Hallelujah.”
As I state almost weekly, I am not too inclined to jump on music that has not broken Top 15 on this custom chart.
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.
