Tasha Cobbs Leonard Gets ‘Name’ Recognition for 10th Top 10 on Hot Gospel Songs Chart
Plus, Joshua Rogers' first Gospel Airplay top 10.
Tasha Cobbs Leonard notches her 10th top 10 on Billboard‘s streaming-, airplay- and sales-powered Hot Gospel Songs chart, as “You Know My Name (Live)” flies 11-3 on the Feb. 16-dated list.
The song becomes her third No. 1 on the Gospel Streaming Songs chart (1.2 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music), following “Your Spirit” (13 weeks on top in 2018) and “Break Every Chain” (three, 2015).
The original studio version of “Name,” featuring Jim Cravity, reached No. 8 on Hot Gospel Songs last June. Along with the studio take’s presence, the live version is benefitting from extra exposure after syndicated gospel program The Willie Moore Jr. Show recently featured it when it won a social media song contest.
Artist/pastor Cobbs Leonard ties James Fortune & FIYA for the third-most Hot Gospel Song top 10s, dating to the chart’s 2005 inception. Kirk Franklin leads with 13, followed by Marvin Sapp (11).
Joining “Name” at No. 3 on Hot Gospel Songs, Cobbs Leonard’s “This Is a Move” ranks at No. 5. She is the first female artist to hold multiple positions in the top five since Tori Kelly claimed three on Sept. 29, 2018 (matching Lecrae for the weekly record) and scores her second twofer, after “For Your Glory” (No. 1) and “Jesus Saves” (No. 3) on May 16, 2015. She is one of seven artists overall to double up in the top five simultaneously and one of three women; Tamela Mann tallied six such weeks in 2017.
On Gospel Airplay, Joshua Rogers earns his first top 10 as “Pour Your Oil” rises 11-9. His second chart entry follows 2013’s No. 19-peaking “So Good.”
