Chart Explain 2/1/2021
Elevation Worship is now 6 weeks at #1 on this predictive Moneyball Chart, in a week with a lot of movement. Because of the movement, both up and down, do not let the down arrow on any active songs throw you, and feel free to ask for clarity.
Songs on the Move this week could have included 6 titles, but we always try to whittle it down to three. Outside of Zach Williams new single debuting strong in the Top 15, and Danny Gokee reaching 15, the songs that most stood out after the completion of this chart are Matthew West, which like Elevation is still in growth mode, but also Cory Asbury Sparrows and Phil Wickham’s Battle Belongs.
The Top 6 titles this week are still the Top 6, just jumbled around a bit.
Below 15, there is a strong surge from the new MercyMe and Amen from FK&C!
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.
