Therapy Session is the second full-length from the 25-year-old NF (aka, Nate Feuerstein), and second No. 1 on Top Christian Albums, after 2015's Mansion debuted on top with 9,000 in pure sales.

Additionally, all 14 songs from the set appear on Hot Christian Songs, 13 of them debuts. "I Just Wanna Know" leads at No. 15, vaulting by 118 percent to 702,000 U.S. streams.

After The Voice contestant Paxton Ingram covered Tasha Cobbs' 2013 hit "Break Every Chain" on the show's April 25 episode, his version starts at Nos. 1 and 2 Christian Digital Songs (23,000) and Hot Christian Songs, respectively.

Finally, Hillary Scott & The Scott Family's "Thy Will" debuts at Nos. 2 and 6, respectively, on Christian Digital Songs and Hot Christian Songs (11,000). The track (also new on Hot Country Songs at No. 33) is the lead single from the act's forthcoming album, Love Remains. Scott, of Lady Antebellum, joins her mother, Linda Davis; father, Lang Scott; and younger sister Rylee on the faith-based album, produced by Ricky Skaggs. A release date for the set has not yet been announced.
