Chart Explain 7/1/19
This is an important week of shifting music, as the three songs on the move, hold keys to the next cycle of music starting with Alive from Big Daddy Weave breaking into the Top 10 at #8, while Phil Wickham ’til I Found You’ becomes the little song that could jumping a good leap from last week’s chart debut to #12. Credit to KSBJ for seeing this one on time in Houston and never giving up.
Tauren Wells “God”s Not Done With You Yet” debuts this week in the notable spot of #13, and is a dual debut and song on the move.
Healthy in the Top 5, For King & Country remains on top, with Danny Gokey making the real effort to be the legitimate song to overtake ‘God Only Knows.’
It is worthy of noting how consistent the Top 6 songs remain this week, and then also some songs that popped from network programming like Native Tongue from Switchfoot which has been held high with WAY-FM research and airplay and recently getting the same treatment with Al Skop and The Message.
Debuts this week are Unspoken and Vertical Worship.
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.
