TobyMac Earns New Top 10 on Hot Christian Songs Chart

TobyMac returns to familiar territory on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart: the top 10. Plus, moves for Gateway Worship Voices & Jekalyn Carr.

TobyMac returns to familiar territory on Billboard‘s Hot Christian Songs chart: the top 10.

The genre star’s “Move (Keep Walkin’)” saunters 11-8 on the list (dated June 4), buoyed by a 7 percent jump to 3,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 19, according to Nielsen Music; on Christian Digital Songs, the track lifts 10-9.

TobyMac earns his 17th Hot Christian Songs top 10, the fifth-best sum in the chart’s history (which dates to 2003). Chris Tomlin leads with 24, followed by Casting Crowns (22), MercyMe (21) and Jeremy Camp (19).

VOICES CARRY NEW SET TO TOP 10: As Top Christian Albums is ruled by Joey & Rory’s Hymns for a 13th week (8,000 sold), the new self-titled set from Gateway Worship Voices arrives at No. 10 with 2,000 sold. Gateway Worship Voices is essentially a brand extension of the worship team Gateway Worship. Those featured as part of the collective on the new set include Kari Jobe, Anna Byrd and Rebecca Hart, among others.

Including its latest, Gateway Worship has placed nine titles, and seven top 10s, on Top Christian Albums, starting with 2008’s No. 2-peaking Wake Up the World. Its prior entry, 2015’s Walls, became its first No. 1 (Oct. 24; 12,000 sold).

CARR RIDE: On Hot Gospel Songs, Jekalyn Carr’s “You’re Bigger” surges 14-8. On Gospel Airplay, the song climbs 15-12 (up 29 percent in plays). Carr scores her second Hot Gospel Songs top 10; her 2013 debut entry “Greater Is Coming” rose to No. 7.
