"It feels quite providential that a song about resurrection and living and breathing again has resonated with so many throughout this COVID-19 pandemic," says the act's Chris Brown.

Elevation Worship scores its second No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart as "Rattle!" rises to the top of the Sept. 18-dated list.

In the week ending Sept. 12, the single gained by 1% to 9.8 million audience impressions, according to MRC Data.

Elevation Worship frontman Chris Brown wrote "Rattle!" with Steven Furtick and Brandon Lake.

"It feels quite providential that a song about resurrection and living and breathing again has resonated with so many throughout this COVID-19 pandemic," Brown tells Billboard. "We hope it continues to inspire faith to believe God for even greater days ahead of us."

The song is the third single and second Christian Airplay leader from the Charlotte, N.C.-based collective's live LP Graves Into Gardens, which arrived at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums in May 2020, becoming the act's fifth of six leading sets. This May, the act and Maverick City Music's collaborative Old Church Basement debuted atop the list, as well as Top Gospel Albums.

Graves Into Gardens lead single "The Blessing: Live," with Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes, reached No. 7 on Christian Airplay, followed by the title track, which dominated both Christian Airplay and the multi-metric Hot Christian Songs lists in February, granting Elevation Worship its first leader on each tally.
