Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 4/20/20

Michael  W. Smith soundly holds onto the Top spot again this week, with Holy Water continuing its consistent run from the top to number two, now week to week.

Great movement inside the Top 15 has Cory Asbury, Elevation Worship and Kari Jobe taking the top three spots of Songs On The Move this week.  Joining these greatest gainers are Cochren & Co. and Micah Tyler, both showing extremely healthy gains.

No debuts this week, but a whole lot of recurrents rising which should be the case as your audience seeks for the best music, both new and the sanely familiar.

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

One thought on “Moneyball National Chart

  • I would suggest the definitive “Waymaker” doesn’t yet exist, but, on the other hand, it may simply be too late for one to come.

    And, on the economist’s proverbial other other hand, I think the Mandisa is the best industry-produced I’ve heard.
