SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 7/23/18
The Top 5 continues its consistency with no new movement this week, except for MercyMe which climbs back to the 2nd slot, leap froggin’ FK&C Joy, which while Joy appears to have lost something this week, despite the red bar, it has not. JOY is full on still growing and has not gone backward in points or spins, just position on THIS chart.
This week’s Songs on the Move include Matt Maher’s What A Friend rocketing from 13 to 6, Hillsong Worship’s Who You Say I Am making even greater strides from 16 to 8, and Josh Wilson climbing just outside Top 15 with Dream Small.
Debuts this week include Lauren Daigle’s You Say and Confidence from Sanctus Real, which has gained in airplay while it stays strong and steady in research.
Notable moves include Ryan Stevenson’s No Matter What and Rend Collective Counting Every Blessing, both sliding into the Top 10.
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.
