Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 1/30/2022

It’s one of the most normal weeks we’ve had in a long time, where the chart, itself, makes a ton of sense.  Moneyball has a strength to highlight the songs that may be moving that programmers don’t necessarily see.  This week’s chart is extremely predictable with recurrents and recent chart toppers doing extremely well.

The standouts are FK&C, getting into the Top 5 from number 7.  Steven Curtis Chapman is the song that won’t quit, with so many weeks on the chart and still climbing, this week into the Top 10 at #9.  Cain moves up three to #11.

The song to pay attention to is this week’s Debut at #15 from Phil Wickham.

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.  Email Rob Wagman StraightPathMandE@gmail.com
