Songs On The Move
Chart Explanation 5/14/18
Cory Asbury and TobyMac continue to dominate in the top two slots. Zach Williams rises a space to the Top 3, and then there’s this week’s greatest gainers, the songs with momentum.
MercyMe’s “Grace Got You,” could very well be the fastest MercyMe single from release date to Top 5, as Moneyball isn’t the only place seeing these quick and gigantic gains.
Natalie Grant “More Than Anything” and Elevation Worship “Do It Again” become the other two great gainers this week, taking advantage of a week where there are a lot of recurrent activity.
There are no new debuts this week, highlighting a week that shows an obviously stalled music cycle overall.
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.
