Chart Explain 1/25/2021
Another incredibly consistent chart week, but with some breakthrough songs. While the Top 4 remains consistent for the 4th week in a row, Andrew Ripp’s Jericho makes it into the top 5 at #5. Elevation Worship increases their total score by 20%, continuing to top the Moneyball Chart for 4 weeks. Cory Asbury’s Sparrows crack the Top 10, going from 11 to 9. Those three are the Songs On The Move this week, but there could have been others.
Jeremy Camp’s Out of My Hands goes from 16 to 11, while Matt Maher’s version of Run To The Father shoots from 24 to 14. We Are Messengers makes it into the coveted Top 15 with Image of God.
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.
