Chart Explain 10/14/19
Casting Crowns holds onto the top spot, and increases its points this week, while Lauren Daigle has a massive turnaround in airplay, which I can only guess is directly due to personal station research.
Daigle, Camp and Vertical Worship lead this week’s Songs On The Move, but there are others; a total of 6, which also includes Zach Williams, Elevation Worship ‘Echo,’ and Hillsong United ‘Good Grace,’ all moving forward within the Top 15 of this chart.
Debuts this week include Cody Carnes and Dan Bremnes.
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.
