Chart Explain 6/10/19
There is tremendous constipation on the chart this week, which simply means soon there will be a new shift in music and songs that have held their post for a while will be moved to the side. We are certainly not quite there, this week, as some faithful titles continue leading the way.
For King & Country continue an impressive trek of dominance remaining solidly at number one, while Pat Barrett climbs back to the number two spot followed by Danny Gokey who remains consistent in sales, streaming, airplay and research.
Switch remains at number five, however has a noticeable increase in points, regardless of the charts not letting the growth land in a higher spot.
Jamie Kimmett fights to get to number 15 this week, getting its greatest credibility to date, and having its best week yet.
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.
