Chart Explain 2/8/2021
Congrats to Elevation Worship, who last week, officially hit the #1 spot on the Industry charts, proving like Michael W. Smith did nine months ago that the Moneyball Charts can see the real hits coming a mile away.
Elevation remains at #1 on the Moneyball Chart this chart, if we take in consideration the week after Christmas, this now makes it 7 weeks on top. While the song is #1 and doesn’t show much weakness for losing traction in the next three weeks, look out below for Zach Williams who skyrockets from 12* – 4* to be the first of three highlighted Songs On The Move this week. The other two gainers include MercyMe and Jeremy Camp.
Debuts this week include Crowder and Jordan St. Cyr. tying for the 15th and 16th spots, while a tad lower, but still impressive at 19* is Cade Thompson.
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.
