Cortez collects his first Gospel Airplay No. 1 in four years.
Zacardi Cortez earns his third No. 1 on Billboard's Gospel Airplay chart (dated Nov. 10) and first in over four years, as "Oh How I Love You" lifts 2-1 in its 36th week, increasing by 4 percent in plays in the week ending Nov. 4, according to Nielsen Music.
"Love" is Cortez's first leader on the list since "1 on 1" ruled for five weeks beginning Feb. 1, 2014.
Cortez first reigned as featured, with Shawn McLemore, on James Fortune & FIYA's 19-week No. 1 "I Believe" in 2010-11. Concurrently, Fortune's "Favor of God," featuring Cortez (the former's 12th Gospel Airplay top 10 and the latter's sixth), returns to its No. 9 high.
