Chart Explain 9/3/19
Tauren Wells has a healthy surge to grab the top spot this week, while Lauren Daigle grows at a rapid pace, knocking at the door to another Top 5 and potential number one with ‘Rescue.’
Jeremy Camp’s ‘Dead Man Walking,’ has that never give up spirit and after months of fighting to crack this chart is one of the three healthiest titles this week.
Before I get to debuts, I have to highlight Riley Clemmons latest single, as while it fell one slot short of Top 15, it has all the signs that it will go the distance and be around for awhile.
Debuts this week include For King & Country with Burn The Ships, Franny with a re-debut, but healthier than its ever been with ‘Defender,’ and Zach Williams ‘Rescue Story’ showing strong signs for a good strong future.
Tenth Avenue North also debuts this week.
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.
