Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 5/20/24

The Top 3 stayed the same for three weeks in a row, with only Crowder showing signs of being taken over in the next chart.  Tauren Wells shows great potential for getting to the Top 3 next week.  

Matthew West and Forrest Frank will try for the Top 5.  With great momentum for both, West goes 10 to 5, while Forrest runs 11 to 7.

Other songs with momentum in the Top 15 include UP! from Forrest, Unsung Hero from For King & Country and Josiah Queen with consumption and now research to propel it back into the Top 15.

Beyond those, CeCe has a nice debut at 19 this week.

Have an amazing week. Rob Wagman

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
