Week of June 23, 2012 Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart: Mary Mary Still Gettin’ It At #1, Andrae Crouch Journies Back to the Top 3
This week’s lineup of top 10 Gospel albums has a few subtle changes from last week. The shocker of the week goes to Andrae Crouch for jumping 6 spots with The Journey to #3, also making him this week’s “greatest gainer”. The top two albums remain the same with Mary Mary’s Go Get It holding on to #1, followed by Marvin Sapp’s I Win at #2.
Two surprising drops on the chart are the Joyful Noise Soundtrack, who was #3 last week and is now #7. And Jason Nelson’s Shifting The Atmosphere, which went from #4 to #9. WOW Gospel 2012 is in the middle of the chart at #4, followed by William McDowell with Arise: The Live Worship Experience remaining at #5.
Zacardi Cortez’s debut album, The Introduction, is #6 after peaking/debuting at #2 three weeks ago. JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise made a small climb to #8 from #10 with After This, while James Fortune & FIYA close out the top 10 at #10 with Identity.
