Chart At A Glance

  • Jason Gray steps back up to #2 with “Remind Me Who I Am”, perhaps cutting short Bobby Tinsley’s tenure there with “Difference”.
  • Just slightly behind, Jimmy Needham scores his first Top 5 on my chart with “If I Ever Needed Grace”, up 2 spots this week after being parked at #7 for the past month.
  • Action slows down below my Top 10, until we get below #20. There, we have MercyMe’s “The Hurt & The Healer rebounding slightly to #22, and Jenny & Tyler’s “Little Balloon” newly peaking into my Top 25.
  • Further down, songs by Josh Groban and Sarah MacIntosh also rebound, while recent debuts by Curt Collins and Json jump nearly 10 spots each.
  • Finally, only 1 song debuts this week, Matthew West’s heartfelt “Forgiveness”, coming in at #48. “My Own Little World” was his last hit on my chart, almost 2 years ago now. Will this one fare well? We shall see in the coming weeks.

Top 50

Rank This WeekRank Last WeekSong Title, by Artist
For visual browsers only, Bullets (e.g., ▲ and ▼) appear on songs seeing a gain or loss of interest, regardless of movement. Upward bullets show gains—white for slight gains, aqua for high, and gold for very high. Downward bullets show losses—grey for slight losses, purple for high, and black for very high. “Jump Of The Week” and “Fall Of The Week”, when present, indicate songs with the biggest change in interest. Finally, songs below #50 become recurrents after 25+ weeks charting, or after 40+ weeks if they never peaked above #26. For more details, see my chart methodology.
