Chart Explain 5/3/2021
There is a lot of healthy going on with this week’s chart, including a can’t miss Top 9, where you couldn’t go wrong with any of it.
Rhett Walker debuts high, hitting 9 out of the gates due to increased airplay and early station research results. This one will be unstoppable when consumption kicks in.
The other two songs on the move this week includes last week’s holdover from TobyMac and Lauren Daigle, however there could have easily been other candidates like Jordan Feliz, FK&C and while out of the Top 15, there’s a lot of inner momentum from Ryan Stevenson’s latest single.
Fun to see how many Elevation Worship titles make this week’s list with consumption being their strength. Graves into Gardens continues strong sales, streaming and airplay while Jireh grows at a great rate.
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.
