Chart Explain 11/20/23
The positions of the songs on this chart are correct, however the moves are not. I was running for Mayor in my wife’s hometown and some of the work I do had to take a backseat. This chart was one of those things.
The songs on the move this week represent the best movers, regardless of the charts, although a couple of songs below the Top 15 that I’d recommend watching closely before the Christmas takeover are Seph Schlueter, Cain, Anne Wilson and TobyMac’s latest single. These four are fast reactors and that includes early testing.
That being said, you cannot go wrong with Praise from Elevation Worship, Housefires and Phil Wickham’s latest. Next week, this chart will begin looking normal again, just in time for a break following the last chart of the year on December 13th.
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.
