SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 7/9/18
Cory Asbury remains song of the year out of reach at this moment, but that isn’t stopping MercyMe and FK&C from trying to get there.
Most noticeable jumps this week are Elevation Worship’s Do It Again flying from 7 to 4 with research and airplay and sales and streaming all giving a nod to say, “This is real obvious!”
Matt Maher slides to number 10, while Francesca Battistelli gets just under 15 in only her second week on the chart, helped by sales, airplay and early research.
Other notables includes Ryan Stevenson’s No Matter What flirting with Top 10, and Matthew West All In, getting into the Top 15.
Pat Barrett’s The Way (New Horizon) continues a slow and steady surge in an exciting cycle of new and impactful music.
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.
