Songs On The Move
Chart Explanation 1/22/18
Lauren Daigle, who had topped the airplay since the Christmas break, wins it all in Moneyball this week, hitting #1. Tenth Avenue North, Control shows a decline, that ISN’T real. Tenth is the victim of heavy traffic at the top, with Zach Williams falling and Daigle gaining, and Tenth being quite secure in that #2 spot, one that they could easily get to #1 from, once Zach moves clear out of the way.
Most impressive this week is the high debut of TOBYMAC “I Just Need You,” at #16, making it a rare debut and song on the move combo, being a greatest gainer. Crowder’s “All My Hope,” jumps into the Top 5, while Tauren Wells “When We Pray,” gains enough to get in the Top 10.
Elevation Worship has a resurge after the Christmas break took away many of their spins. As stations get to research their music again, they quickly find that this is still a Top 10 researcher everywhere.
Cory Asbury’s “Reckless Love,” has a gain of 1, but with huge sales and that song already at #17, this is one not to miss.
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.
