Chart Explain 2/25/19
For King & Country is poised to hit the top spot by this time next week, as Hillsong and Crowns remain steady in their ranking but lose points, as FK&C gains.
Josh Baldwin, Zach Williams and Crowder show nice surges making them the Songs On The Move this week.
I wouldn’t put too much credence on any activity this week below number 20, as the points to the right reveal that songs with low points have made the chart this week. It is important to understand the power of Moneyball on weeks where there isn’t a lot of increased momentum, as a whole, and it is the points system that reveals the real value of the songs potential in the early stages.
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.
