The difference between #1 and #2 this week on Billboard/BDS Christian Hot AC/CHR was 2 spins. TWO SPINS! Indie pop act Joshua Micah officials hits #1 this week with his debut single "Parachute" edging out "Love Broke Thru" from TobyMac. Congratulations to Joshua on a massive accomplishment for any artist...but for an indie artist on a debut single? This is bananas. We are forever grateful to Jeremy Louis at Boost 101.9 in St. Louis for first checking out the song and bringing it to a music meeting and for Mike Couchman (PD at Boost 101.9 and Joy FM) for connecting Joshua with 55 Promotion while being a consistent champion for this song.
#1 songs are always a huge deal. I'm so honored to be part of this one alongside my friends Chris Hauser, Matt Ingle and Katie Green. Thankful to our friends at radio for supporting Danny and this great song. Congrats to the team at Maximum Artist Group and BMG as well. What an accomplishment!
It's been incredible to be part of Lauren Daigle's very first #1 single at radio! Two weeks in a row...crazy. I'm so encouraged by radio's support of Lauren and this song. It's been extraordinary. Also, quite incredible to see it sitting at the top of the sales charts from the first week it released to radio...that says a lot. Multi-week #1 singles aren't common these days so massive congratulations to Lauren and the entire team at Centricity! Well done!
Jordan Feliz is on fire. His single "The River" has caught on like no other single I have ever promoted to radio in my career. He has champions at all formats. The song is researching incredibly well. The song is also selling...top 5 at iTunes for several weeks now (currently #2 behind "Good Good Father" by Chris Tomlin). Now, it's #1 on Billboard's Hot AC/CHR chart which marks the 2nd time in consecutive weeks that Centricity Music and 55 Promotion have celebrated a #1 single at radio! Unreal. I think we have much more to come from Jordan so if you haven't checked out his music yet, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
Congrats to Jordan and the team at Centricity Music. #1 singles aren't common and this team is on a role!
It was an absolutely thrill to recently celebrate the first #1 single in the history of 55 Promotion! Congratulations to Lauren Daigle on his very first #1 single on Billboard's Christian Airplay Chart. It's an incredible accomplishment! I'm thrilled for her and the entire team at Centricity Music. Kris Love and Jennifer Allen are great at what they do and it's been an honor to work alongside them to achieve this milestone.
