Chart Explain 7/15/19
The Top 6 songs remain the Top 6 this week, just jumbled a little bit with FK&C strongly holding onto the Top spot for, now, going on 18 or 19 weeks, I have honestly lost count, but notice something, as we continue to attempt to school those who don’t yet know the benefits of the Moneyball Chart.
Moneyball for God Only Knows early, and it sustains regardless of chart position as Moneyball looks at Airplay to Sales and Streaming ratios, as well as research and separated chart, airplay and sales data.
Songs rising this week, include Switch ‘Symphony’, which hits number two tying Danny Gokey for points, while Phil Wickham ‘Til I Found You’ continues to pummel its way through heading towards Top 5, landing at 8 this week, while Unspoken has nice elevation from 20 to the Top 15.
Good Grace by Hillsong United returns back to the chart, from 33 to 17, while Lauren Daigle and Francesca Battistelli also have re-entries this week.
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.
