Chart Explain 9/27/2021
Anne Wilson stays hot and on top again this week on Moneyball with airplay producing even MORE consumption, as new audience becomes aware of this powerful, yet simple message.
Phil Wickham House of the Lord continues to be the song on deck for number one, and then without greater connectivity, I don’t see which song will eventually take over from there.
Tasha Layton remains forward moving, but doesn’t get the same passion in consumption that Wickham and Wilson presently share. Along with Wickham, this week’s Songs On The Move are Casting Crowns and Chris Tomlin’s Thank You Lord.
Regardless of arrow direction, all songs in the Top 15 this week are tried, true and working!
A programmer in Florida asked why Moneyball shows song positive when they are negative on the airplay chart. This reasoning is because Moneyball gives an up arrow based on two pieces of criterion, first if the song has gained in points and second if the song has gained in position. Many songs that are over on the airplay chart, begin to bust out even greater in consumption allowing the songs to rise beyond the lack of bullet on the current Mediabase or BDS Chart.
While this is the national overview, I would gladly show you what your localized Moneyball chart would look like.
God Bless your week. Thank you for the questions each week – Rob Wagman
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.
