Chart Explain 8/23/2021
Anne Wilson stays at #1 this week, with Evan Craft showing the greatest strength to retake that spot on the Moneyball Chart, with some fascinating connectivity happening with music this week, most specifically two Elevation Worship songs in the Top 10, Jireh showing the greatest connection of airplay to consumption of any song on the list this week, climbing to #7. Rattle continues growth but stays at #3 with Evan Craft ahead of it. Both, shooting hard towards the top.
Cain breaks deeper into the Top 5 this week reaching #4.
Phil Wickham’s House of the Lord climbs to #6 making it a notable song this week. As Dante Bowe fights to stay bulleted on the airplay charts, Moneyball tracking indicates a strong connection between airplay and consumption for Joyful, with many stations revealing Top 10 research nationwide. Dante has a nice jump from 20 to 13* showing this as its healthiest week yet.
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.
