Chart Explain 5/20/19
Danny Gokey hits the #2 spot on Moneyball, 24 total points shy of the song that has dominated at #1 for many weeks now, For King & Country “God Only Knows.”
Gokey’s Haven’t Seen It Yet, Bethel Music’s “Raise A Hallelujah,” and Cochren & Co’s “Church,” are this week’s songs on the move.
However, it could have as easily been Scars from I Am They, or Resurrecting from Elevation that could have been included in that number.
Jamie Kimmet’s Prize Worth Fighting For hits the important Top 15 mark on this national chart. Austin French continues to prove the format, as a whole, missed a big hit with ‘Born Again,’ as with only a few stations giving this song support at this time, the rotations prove to be extremely high, a sign that Austin researches well.
Big Daddy Weave re-enters the chart at 16, and Franny debuts at 25 with Defender.
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.
