Chart Explain 5/11/20
Michael W. Smith hits number one at our format matching the Moneyball Chart trajectory and projection, which put it on top five weeks ago. Cory Asbury remains stable and hot at number two, while the 3 songs on the move this week go to:
Big Daddy Weave “I Know”
Kari Jobe “The Blessing”
Matt Maher “Alive & Breathing”
Kari Jobe shows potential number one trajectory, while the other two show weekly growth and consistencies to get there, as well, if The Blessing doesn’t get there first. The three songs take up the 4, 5 and 6 positions on this weeks chart and would be higher, if not for the strength of the songs at the top, which also includes Holy Water, whose consumption is still as powerful as ever.
New Daigle and New For King & Country debut just outside of the Top 15.
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.
