SONGS ON THE MOVE
Chart Explain 9/10/18
Every song in blue in the Top 10 has fought and continues to fight for that position. The only thing separating those songs from the ones in yellow this week is a variance in rank.
Lauren and FK&C hold steady in the top 2 spots, while Rend Collective and Tauren Wells go two weeks straight as the greatest gaining songs; Pat Barrett joins them this week as the Top 3 Songs on the move.
You can always tell when music is shifting when you see a lot of debuts in one week, like we do this week with Tori Kelly, I Am They, Josh Baldwin and Unspoken.
Any questions about Moneyball or your market?
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.
