The Momentum Keeps Building for Danny Gokey! The Latest Billboard News

Danny Gokey - Michael Andre Photo (430x287)Can a 3rd Single From an Album Become it’s BEST selling song?

We’d suspect it’s rare. Danny Gokey has a new milestone for his song “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” according to the Billboard Christian Digital Songs Chart: it’s the 5th best selling song in the Christian market this week.  And it is the highest ranking EVER on that chart for Danny Gokey! Back in June 2014, his song “Hope in Front of Me” reached #6 on the Christian Digital Song Chart.  Congratulations to Danny and his team!

Meanwhile, the “Hope in Front of Me” album continues to be the album that just keeps selling!  It jumps back up to #12 spot on the Billboard Christian albums chart (its 68 week on that chart.) It also climbs back up to #18 on the Billboard Independent Album chart ( the 11 time on that chart) and it is the “Biggest Gainer” on the chart!

We’ve got other great Billboard “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” news:

  1. It reaches the TOP TEN of the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart!  Last week #11
  2. It is #7 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs* Chart!

    Do you notice the absence of AI contestants that have already been on Idol on this Season? Danny is doing REALLY well with a 20 month old album and 3rd single. It’s quite impressive, IMO.
    Of course, Kelly’s appearance on Idol rocketed her to the top of the singles chart. I think Danny singing TYHTBA would be VERY successful, too.

  3. Wonderful news ! Congratulations Danny and Team Danny !!! Go Danny Go !!!!

  4. If a song charts higher on a sale list than a different song at another time, could the higher-charting song be selling less than the other depending on the maximum sales at the different times?

    Sometimes a singer has a #1 album that has sold no more than another’s singers #24 album at a different time. I’ve wondered why singers don’t have albums released when there isn’t much competition. I suppose, though, if they all decided to do that, then there would be lots of competition.

  5. Lurker.I think singers or their labels do try not to release albums at the same time with some best-selling artists.There are barely any other singers that released their albums the week adele’s new album came out. They even say Rianna postponed releasing day for her new CD to avoid going against adele. Competition isnt always a bad thing.At least JB and one-direction made all the dramas working for them.

  6. Mr. Bing,
    That’s interesting. It is probably hard to determine the best time–especially if a star chooses to do an unannounced release.

  7. Miss you ladies! I’ve been following Danny on FB and Twitter but haven’t posted her since last year’s Sophia’s Heart. Hope everyone is doing well.

  8. Welcome to DGNews, Jill! We are always glad to see you! I hope you have been well!

    Unfortunately is no longer available for even the moderators… But the desire to support Danny moves on!
