God Over Money artist and A&R Datin released his label debut album, The Roar, on Feb. 12, and the LP opened its first week eligible on multiple Billboard charts.

For the week of March 5, The Roar landed at No. 18 among top independent albums, No. 11 among top Christian albums and No. 6 among heatseeker albums.

How music falls under independent and Christian categories is self-explanatory, but here’s Billboard’s explanation of its heatseeker chart.

“This week’s top-selling albums by new or developing acts, defined as those who have never appeared on the top 100 of the Billboard 200 or the top 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Country Albums, Latin Albums, Christian Albums or Gospel Albums. If a title reaches any of those levels, it and the act’s subsequent albums are then ineligible to appear on Heatseekers Albums, ranked by sales data as compiled by Nielsen Music.”
