Chart Explain 4/1/19
Extremely straight forward this week. For King & Country soars some more from the top spot, momentum that we have not seen since Lauren Daigle’s ‘You Say.’
Daigle’s ‘Look Up Child,’ keeps rising, now at #3 and one of the greatest gainers this week, being joined by Elevation Worship’s “Resurrecting,” which knocks on the door of the Top 5, going from 10 to 6 this week. Danny Gokey cracks the Top 15 this week, getting to number 13 with ‘Haven’t Seen It Yet.’
Bethel Music is one away from getting into the Top 15, and keep in mind, I preach that if it isn’t in the Top 15 or close, it isn’t worthy of playing on your station.
One debut this week: Jamie Kimmet ‘Prize Worth Fighting For’ slips in at #24.
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.
