Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 11/2/2020

Zach Williams will hold the top spot at least until Christmas music takes over our format.  With his scores being 20 points higher than the next best song, it would take a miracle for something to knock that off its roost before the end of the year.

 Tasha Layton gets an amazing boost this week, and well deserved landing at #3 while Tauren Wells hits #4, shaking the Top 5 up a bit this week.

 While Colton Dixon’s Miracles fights to maintain a bullet at the format, on this momentum chart, it’s still more than worthy of an upward move, as the momentum it achieves through both airplay and the connection of those spins to consumption is worthy weighing heavily before wrongfully dismissing the song from your top plays.

 This week’s Top 15 remains consistent and proven with a nice forward move from Josh Baldwin with Evidence heading closer to the Top 10.

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
