Lecrae First Artist To Hold Top 3 Positions On Billboard Gospel Songs Chart
Lecrae’s upcoming 7th studio album Anomaly, to be released September 9th, has been no stranger to the top of charts nationwide. Last week his newest single “All I Need Is You” became the first Christian hip-hop song ever to reach the number one spot on the iTunes Top Songs chart. This week’s success is no different.
Another first for Lecrae – he now occupies the top 3 spots on Billboard’s Gospel Digital Songs chart. “All I Need Is You” sits at the top, while “Nuthin”, the first single released from Anomaly, and “Fear” sit at number 2 and 3 respectively on the fore mentioned chart.
Additionally, Lecrae makes yet another appearance on the Gospel Digital Songs chart at number 9, for “I’m Turnt” released as a part of the sequel to his earlier mix tape entitled Church Clothes. Church Clothes 2 along with “I’m Turnt”, were released in April of this year, making its appearance in the top 10 amongst the most downloaded songs within the Gospel genre that much more extraordinary.
