Chart Explain 9/14/20
With some shifting again within the Top 5, the Top 5 songs remain the same with Zach taking the Top spot again for the second consecutive week.
The most explosive song on the Moneyball Chart this week is Tasha Layton’s Into The Sea, going from 14 to #8 this week, while Elevation Worship’s Graves Into Gardens catches up to Tomlin to take over the 6th spot.
Cain, which had a stellar debut last week at #15 proves it’s not fluke by advancing two more spots to #13.
The impressive debut this week is from Josh Baldwin, flying from below 25 up to #14 this week. Keep in mind that any song in the Top 15 on this chart is in a healthy spot nationwide and while some may have down arrows, this reflects the movement on this chart and not the status of the song’s health.
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.
