Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 9/7/20

Zach Williams hits the top spot, again, now for the fourth separate time in the song’s lifespan, this time with more solid ground behind him, as in week’s past where FK&C and Zach were tussling hard to come out on top.

Jeremy Camp research continues to be steady across the board keeping many stations in a high rotation followed by great results of streaming and sales.  

While Kari Jobe falls a tad from Top 3, back to 4, The Blessing continues to prove itself in research and consumption.

Danny Gokey has the greatest gains this week in actual points difference but is joined with Chris Tomlin as the most solid momentum gainers.  Hope Darst at 5, is not stalled, but is still in need of something to crack in that Top 4 before she can get a notch or two higher.

Graves Into Gardens remains Top 10, while airplay has not yet matched the consumption results in most markets.  This is a no brainer for any playlist anywhere in America, and the most obvious song you might be strong arming off of your airwaves.

God So Loved from We The Kingdom breaks beyond Top 10 to 9, while Tauren shows gains in airplay and great surges of consumption in the markets supporting this single on air.

Josh Wilson and NeedToBreathe see continued gains in the Top 15, while Cain has a strong debut onto the chart with Rise Up, mostly fueled by early airplay.


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]
