Songs On The Move
Chart Explanation 3/5/18
Recurrents make great strides this week with Elevation Worship “O Come To The Altar,” returning with a vengeance into the Top 10. Old Church Choir and Even If also make forward movement this week.
Austin French has been flirting with his debut appearance on Moneyball, but this week, airplay comes together to make it so.
Hillsong United’s “So Will I,” has the greatest gain popping into the Top 5, followed by MercyMe’s resurgence of “I Can Only Imagine,” with both the new version and original version landing smack dab in the middle of the chart.
Casting Crowns continue to Slow and Steady their way upward, as well.
Tenth Ave and Crowder swap again for the top spot, and songs showing downward momentum that have only been hurt by the momentum of others, Cory Asbury, still rock solid, as well as Lincoln Brewster and Jordan Feliz, who only lose position, because of the gain of others, and not because their songs are descending.

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.
