Chart Explain 5/17/2021
What we’ve been witnessing since the descent of Graves Into Gardens, are two songs that have elevated themselves quickly, but that don’t want to disappear anytime soon. With Crowder and Phil Wickham, we have two songs that are clearly above the rest of the chart, and you can see this indicated by the amount of points these tracks get in the right hand column.
This week’s Songs on the Move, pose the best chance for a rise to the top, but while chart position looks promising, the point spread says nobody’s getting past Crowder anytime soon.
Toby, Jordan St. Cyr and Lauren all have the momentum to hit Top 3 within the next couple of weeks, but nobody has the fuel at this present time to contend with Good God Almighty.
We The Kingdom is worth noting with a nine position leap from 18 to 9, then also Jireh from Elevation Worship going from 14 to 12.
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.
