Chart Explain 5/13/19
For King & Country continues to own the Moneyball Chart, garnering the top spot again. While Pat Barrett would be a number one song any other time, FK&C is making that threshold quite impossible to reach.
Look Up Child continues to be a viable song for airplay, with consumption and research showing strong signs that this song deserves top airplay.
This week’s Songs On The Move are gaged by their biggest gains, with the three notables being I Am They, Switch with Symphony and Bethel Music’s Raise A Hallelujah.
Danny Gokey could be the song that will eventually dethrone FK&C, but that would be a couple weeks away still.
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.
