Chart Explain 7/22/19
In the past 20 weeks, many tittles have attempted to move For King & Country’s ‘God Only Knows’ from the Moneyball Chart top spot, but nobody was able to do it.
Until this week. What a great run it has been for Joel and Luke, so in what would have been its 20th week at #1, Bethel Music is able to oust FK&C by a close, yet, effective margin of just two points, for the victory this week.
Big Daddy Weave continues forward, despite all of the titles falling above and below it, showing another great week of momentum, now just one slot away from Top 5. Tauren Wells may have taken a minute to get this latest single started, but once on the air, it has taken milliseconds to get this Top 10, this week going from 11* – 8*.
While we only pick three Songs on the Move each week, there were several legitimate contenders that didn’t get the honors, but deserve the mention, including Unspoken ‘Reason,’ Ryan Stevenson and Switchfoot.
Building 429 has had a great increase this week landing just shy of the important Top 15.
Two debuts, include Jeremy Camp and Jason Gray.
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.
