Chart Explain 3/4/19
For King & Country, just as we teased last week quickly gets to the top of the momentum heap this week with God Only Knows.
Casting Crowns, Josh Baldwin and MercyMe stay steady in the Top 5.
Lauren Daigle’s Look Up Child flies from 12 to 7 this week, showing the most momentum of any song on this chart this week, outside of FK&C at #1.
We Are Messengers Maybe It’s OK, moves to #6 while Resurrecting from Elevation Worship has great movement from 19 to 13.
Other songs staying steady in the Top 15 include Tauren Wells and Austin French.
As I say with consistency, unless spelled out with special circumstance, songs outside of 15 on this national chart are not songs I would recommend just yet for action on your local lists.
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.
