Singer-songwriter Danny Gokey attains the #1 spot on Billboard’s Christian Album Sales chart for his latest album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”. It is Danny’s first album with Capitol Christian Music Group/Sparrow Records. A fellow label mate, Lauren Daigle continues her reign on the top of the Billboard‘s Top Christian Albums chart (dated April 27), but Danny’s album claims #2 its debut on that chart.
He also debuts on the Christian Streaming Songs chart this week, rises to #4 on the Hot Christian Songs and is just outside the Top 10 (at #11) in the all genre “Top Album Sales” Billboard chart.
We understand from Billboard’s tweet yesterday that Danny’s newest album checks in at #76 on Billboard’s Hot 200 Album chart (all genres) which includes streaming, etc.
From the Billboard Charts, here are some other chart placements:

It jumps 8 places to #19 (27 LW) in its 7th week on Billboard’s largest Christian airplay chart. “If You Ain’t In It” also moves up a 8 spots on Billboard’s Hot Christian Song chart; this week #31 (last week #39).

Newest Single Debuts on Billboard’s Christian Airplay Chart
Danny Gokey’s fourth single off his album, RISE, debuts at #44 on the July 7th, 2018 Billboard charts. We think this is an awesome song that is clearly popular with his fans with the over two million youTube views before it was chosen as a single. We know that Air-1, Cleveland’s Fish WFHM are currently playing it and few big stations like WAY-FM and KTIS -FM have tried it out. Will it be embraced by Christian Radio? We hope so.
Danny’s latest single, “Masterpiece” sees a nice growth of +133 spins and a move from #16 in its 17th week on Billboard’s largest Christian airplay chart. “Masterpiece” also moves up a spot on Billboard’s Hot Christian Song chart: this week #21 (last week #22). “Masterpiece” also reached the Top 20 on the Christian AC Indicator song chart (It did slip on the May 5th Billboard charts, but hopefully will rebound.)
Especially when you see the results of Billboard‘s year-end charts!
Danny’s achieved an impressive fifth place on the Christian Airplay Artist Radio Airplay success of his songs, “Rise” and “The Comeback” — as well as play from his previous hits!
Danny and his songs also ranked on MANY more charts. You can see the best of the chart news below.
But why do I have the lead photo featuring Danny’s song, “Masterpiece”? Because it is the next single to be released to Christian radio. We are looking forward to see how this ballad will do on radio. Danny’s last ballad, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”, is still being played, streamed and bought. You can check out “Masterpiece” lyrics and acoustic video HERE. Continue reading “Billboard End of Year Charts Success for Danny Gokey”→
