Chart Explain 8/16/2021
Evan Craft has not descended, in fact, the total points for Be Alright continues to rise, but this is the week where all things come together for Anne Wilson, making her this week’s #1. While it is rare for songs to regain the #1 position, it does happen, and Evan Craft is in that exact position to regain as airplay continues to grow.
Rattle from Elevation Worship slides into the 3rd position, while Rhett Walker Gospel Song, hits #4.
CeCe Winans hits #6, while Tauren Wells lands at #9. Other notables within the Top 15 are Casting Crowns, Elevation Worship’s Jireh and Big Daddy Weave.
Daigle, Camp and FK&C debut at the lower end of the chart this week.
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.
