Michael W. Smith’s version of Way Maker dominates our charts, and consumption and hits the top spot in stellar fashion surpassing the 70 point mark only hit by Lauren Daigle and For King & Country in the last two years.
Matt Maher’s “Alive & Breathing,” jumps from nowhere to somewhere making its debut at #11 this week. Rhett Walker’s “Believe,” gets all the pieces working together at the right time from consumption to research to airplay to get a nice jump this week from 15 back into the top 10 at #7.
Research stories continue to grow for Cochren & Co.’s “One Day,” and Elevation Worship’s “See A Victory.” While Cochren finally breaks into the Top 15, Elevation rises again inside the Top 10, this week to #8.
Cory Asbury and Big Daddy Weave continue their growth in both research and consumption to continue forward inside the Top 5. Rend Collective has a nice all around week hitting number 10, while Building 429 hits #15, based mostly on airplay.
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.
