Chart Explain 9/13/2021
Evan Craft and Anne Wilson have been alternating weeks at #1, now for the fourth straight week, with Craft taking the top spot again this week and notably a huge gainer in the Totals column. I don’t typically share last week’s points to this week, but Craft was at 70 total last week, now at 78, nice increases to put Be Alright back to the top.
Elevation Worship and Phil Wickham show consistent growth and a surge towards the top to be two of this week’s three Songs On The Move, joined by Matthew West “What If,” which cracks the Top 10.
Consistent and gaining within the Top 15 are Big Daddy Weave, Tasha Layton, Jeremy Camp and Maverick City’s Promises.
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.
