Songs On The Move
Chart Explanation 3/12/18
Crowder retakes the top spot this week, as Tenth Avenue North begins its real descent after an honorable time at the pinnacle. TobyMac continues that steady rise, and now lands at number 2. Hillsong United, while on the rise ties Toby for points, so don’t let the 3-3 week to week numbers give you an indication “So Will I” is slowing, as it is not.
Cory Asbury leads the Greatest Momentum tracks this week, followed by Lincoln Brewster and Jordan Feliz.
I Can Only Imagine falls to 25, but that is what happens when a song is more than 15 years old, competing with currents. As an event song, which this one presently is, heading to the premiere of the movie, I’d recommend playing this as a current.
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.
