Chart Explain 4/12/20
Michael W. Smith’s Waymaker remains on top, as Leeland’s version breaks into the Top 10 at #8. The point difference between the two sheds good light on just how explosive the MWS version has become with an increase of airplay.
This week’s Songs on the Move include Kari Jobe’s The Blessing, which debuts Top 10 at #9 this week, while Big Daddy Weave grows in the Top 5, moving to Number 4 and Elevation heads toward Top 5, not at #7 with See A Victory.
Casting Crowns debuts at #14 with Love Move First, while Nobody is coming down, but still ranks one position above. Honorable Mention: Hope Darst debuts at #17 with Peace Be Still, a song she wrote which was originally recorded by Lauren Daigle.
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.
