SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 10/8/18
The consistency of the Moneyball Songs on the Move, shows itself for the fifth straight week, with TobyMac and Micah Tyler rising steadily; being joined this week by the increases of Sanctus Real.
While the top 5 songs are the same, Tauren rises to #4 to create movement within the top 5.
Toby’s Everything jumps from *9 – *6, Micah Tyler jumps into the top 10 at #9 with Even Then, and Sanctus Real’s Confidence surges with consistent forward momentum heading towards Top 10.
Lauren Daigle’s Look Up Child steamrolls into a debut this week, while Avril Lavigne’s Head Above Water breaks into the top 15, but without any indicators outside of sales and streaming, which is why its high momentum didn’t receive Song On The Move certification 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.
