Singer-songwriter Jordan Feliz notches his first No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, as Future, his third full-length, opens atop the tally (dated April 7) with 13,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.

Of that sum, 12,000 were via traditional album sales, marking Feliz's strongest sales week to date.

Originally from Clovis, California, the 29-year-old's first LP Beloved reached No. 22 on Top Christian Albums in February 2016. Sophomore set The River arrived at its No. 4 peak in May 2016 (with 8,000 sold, his prior best sum).

Future's maiden single, "Witness," co-penned by Feliz, became his fourth Christian Airplay top 10 when it reached its No. 10 high on the March 17-dated list.

GOOD 'WORK' On Top Gospel Albums, Brian Courtney Wilson's A Great Work enters at No. 4 (2,000 units), marking his fourth top five effort in as many visits.

His first album, Just Love, hit No. 2 in 2009. He followed with his lone No. 1 to date, So Proud, which launched atop the chart dated Feb. 25, 2012, with 12,000 sold, his best sales week so far. His third LP, Worth Fighting For, began at its No. 2 peak in 2015.

The A Great Work title-track re-enters Hot Gospel Songs at No. 18, a new best rank. It climbs 17-15 on Gospel Airplay, up 26 percent in plays.
