Songs On The Move


Chart Explanation 2/5/18:

We Are Messengers “Point To You,” continues to prove its longevity, building more in its third time in the top five.  The center of the chart has major fallout, with many songs that thrived since October, hitting the wall.

Music cycles, and there is a cleansing for a new batch of music, with big leaps this week from Cory Asbury with “Reckless Love and Unspoken’s “Miracle,” driving into the Top 15, Sidewalk Prophets “Come To The Table,” cracking the Top 10, and the big moves this week coming from Crowder who breaks the Top 5 with “All My Hope,” Hillsong United with “So Will I” quickly getting to #7, and TobyMac “I Just Need You,” hitting #14.

Chris Tomlin and NeedToBreathe debut 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.  Email Rob Wagman
