Moneyball National Chart
Chart Explain 6/21/2021
We have a new Number One, but since it has already hit Number one on the airplay charts, it won’t be a shock, but TobyMac Help Is On The Way hits the top spot this week. Why do some songs get to the top of this chart sooner than they hit number one on monitored charts? Well in the case of Toby, why do some songs get to the top spot on this chart after?
The answer is simple. Moneyball is based on Momentum, so until this week, the Momentum of Crowder was still higher than that of Toby, but this week, Toby has climbed above.
We The Kingdom hits Top 5, Evan Craft climbs to #9 and Jordan Feliz hits number 10. The other great move within the Top 15 includes Jireh from Elevation Worship.
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.
