Chart Explain 7/29/19
Last week, it was Unspoken that had all the vitals to become a Song On The Move, but due to MANY songs all performing well in that same week, Unspoken had to accept honorable mention status, something that they don’t have to do this week, as they have soundly become one of the top 3 songs on the move.
However, we have another week where some songs on the rise, that would normally get this opportunity, instead have to find satisfaction in this week’s honorable mentions.
Big Daddy Weave and Tauren Wells, remain as songs on the move for consecutive weeks, while songs from Building 429, Lauren Daigle’s ‘Rescue’ and Jeremy Camp’s latest all have nice gains getting them inside 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.
