Chart Explain 2/3/20
Interesting week, in terms of the top songs at the format as For King & Country’s ‘Burn The Ships,’ rolls into the Moneyball Top Spot. While it leapfrogs Zach Williams to make this feat possible, ‘Rescue Story,’ is still on the rise when you combine airplay, consumption, sales and streaming, and the quotient that I love best, the airplay to sales ratio.
If I were to separate Leeland and Michael W. Smith’s versions of ‘Waymaker,’ both titles would make this week’s Top 15, with MWS showing slight momentum advantages, as we’re seeing the connection of KLOVE airplay to strong sales and streaming nationwide.
We The Kingdom continues its upward trend, as does MercyMe despite being seen in the downward from last week position to this week, “Almost Home,’ airplay is showing connectivity. Matthew West, Rend Collective and Jordan Feliz move forward on the strength of airplay, making them safe titles to blend with your best, since their familiarity is on the rise.
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.
