Moneyball National Chart
Chart Explain 8/31/20
For King & Country tends to do this with every single they have; that is, give up the top spot only to win it back in the next week or two. Zach Williams & Dolly duo’d it to the top spot last week, to fall just a couple points below Together this week.
Kari Jobe is the top Song on the Move this week, cracking the Top 3 and sending Jeremy Camp to #4. What I love about Elevation Worship’s rise to the Top 10 and now on the brink of cracking Top 5, is that they’ve done this with very little airplay, but maximizing the airplay they do have with the greatest connectivity of airplay to reaction. When the format fully buys in that this is more than just a worship song, it will ride to the #1 spot quite fast, which is easy to predict based on the room that still exists for this title to gain exposure.
Chris Tomlin is impressive, gaining in consumption and station research at the same time, landing right behind Graves Into Gardens at #7.
Whether up arrow or down arrow, all of the songs this week in your Top 15 are sound, tried and true and can be trusted. Josh Wilson and Tasha Layton show great airplay to consumption, streaming and sales by moving forward again within 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.
