Kanye West’s Jesus Is King is king!
The rapper’s first gospel album is making moves on the industry charts.
The album, released Oct. 25, is currently No. 1 on both the Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums chart.
Kanye West is the most recent crossover artist to lead the faith-based charts. Last year, singer Tori Kelly’s Hiding Place landed and Snoop Dogg’s Snoop Dogg Presents” Bible of Love reached the spot on the Top Gospel Albums chart.
West’s album also topped the Billboard 200 chart with 264,000 equivalent album units earned in the first week that ended on Oct. 31.
The highly-anticipated project also led the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts.
On top of that, every song on the album made an appearance on Billboard’s Hot 100. “Follow God” was at No. 7 while “Closed On Sunday” was at No. 17. “Selah” is No. 19 and “On God” is No. 23 while “God Is” is No. 36 and “Use This Gospel” is No. 37.
“Everything We Need” featuring Ty Dolla $ign is No. 33 and “Water” is No. 50, while “Hands On” is No. 59 and “Every Hour” is No. 44.
“Jesus Is Lord” came in at No. 62.
But West’s album, which marks his first of gospel as he reportedly isn’t going back to secular music, isn’t just for chatter. His latest Sunday Service in Lafayette, La. resulted in 1,000 people giving their lives to Jesus Christ.
Curvine Brewington, a pastor who attended revealed the news on social media.
