“Jireh,” the team-up of Christian worship music collective Elevation Worship and gospel cooperative Maverick City Music, featuring Chandler Moore and Naomi Rain (both of whom are members of Maverick City Music), blasts in at No. 1 on Billboard’s airplay-, sales- and streaming-based Hot Gospel Songs chart and at No. 10 on Hot Christian Songs (both dated April 10).
The song marks the first No. 1 for the Atlanta-based Maverick City Music, among its eight appearances. It’s the first Hot Gospel Songs entry for the Charlotte, N.C.-based Elevation Worship, as well as for Moore and Rain under their own names.
“Jireh” is the first song to arrive at the Hot Gospel Songs summit since Kanye West’s “Wash Us in the Blood,” featuring Travis Scott, last July.
On Hot Christian Songs, “Jireh” awards Elevation Worship its seventh top 10. The outfit has scored one leader, “Graves Into Gardens,” featuring Brandon Lake, for two weeks in February. “Jireh” is the first Hot Christian Songs top 10 for Maverick City, Moore and Rain.
Released April 2, “Jireh” collected 2.1 million U.S. streams in its first week, ending April 8, according to MRC Data. It moves directly into the penthouse on Gospel Streaming Songs and starts at No. 5 on Christian Streaming Songs.
The song also sold 4,000 downloads in its first frame and begins atop Christian Digital Song Sales and Gospel Digital Song Sales.
“Jireh,” which Moore and Rain wrote, is the lead track from Elevation Worship and Maverick City Music’s collaborative album Old Church Basement, due April 30.Credit: Original article published here.
