Chart Explain 7/12/2021
Lauren Daigle increases her spot on top of the Moneyball Chart this week, climbing in points while the songs below her, while still maintaining position, begin to wane in points.
Evan Craft puts it all together this week to go deeper inside the Top 10, at #7 this week, while Elevation Worship’s Jireh makes the surprise increase to take the second Songs On The Move spot climbing to 11, followed by Anne Wilson’s My Jesus who cracks the Top 15, landing at 12.
If there were four, Big Daddy Weave was close to getting in as well hitting #14.
Keep in mind, the up and down arrows within the Top 16 songs are moves within Moneyball and do not reflect the moves in airplay, but can detect the momentum you don’t see when you can’t collectively, in one chart monitor airplay, consumption and research.
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.
