Chart Explain 7/26/2021
Lauren Daigle continues to roost on top of the chart for another week, and while her total score has lost momentum, she holds off two that move up consistently again THIS WEEK, towards the top spot.
Cain moves up another spot to hit #2 this week, while Rhett Walker also gains one, now at #3.
While Anne Wilson also continues a consistent surge, she will have to get around both Crowder and Daigle to get there. Bank on the next number ones being Cain and Rhett.
Great debut from Tauren Wells landing in the Top 15 for his first week on the chart. Evan Craft, CeCe Winans, BDW and Casting Crowns have solid gains within the Top 15 this week.
Outside of the Top 15, keep an eye on Phil Wickham’s House of the Lord.
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.
