Brandon Lake scores his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart as Coat of Many Colors blasts in atop the survey (dated Nov. 4). Released Oct. 20, the 16-track set earned 9,000 equivalent album units through Oct. 26, according to Luminate.

The 33-year-old singer-songwriter from Charleston, S.C., leads the list for the first time among four appearances. He previously hit the top 10 with his first entry, House of Miracles, which reached No. 6 in June.

“Today I am in awe and wonder of how God continues to use this music to love and encourage others,” Lake tells Billboard. “It’s something I will never get used to. I have learned that most of our life is not lived in the palace – it is us enduring pit after pit. My prayer is that this album would meet you where you are and help remind you that God is with you in the pit.”

Concurrently, the lead single from Coat of Many Colors, “Praise You Anywhere,” hops 4-1 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart. It drew 5.6 million airplay audience impressions and 2 million official streams in the U.S. in the tracking week.

Lake tops Hot Christian Songs with a third title (among five top 10s), following his featured turn on Elevation Worship’s “Graves Into Gardens,” which led for two frames weeks in February 2021, and his own “Gratitude,” which dominated for 15 weeks beginning this February. He is the only act to have led the chart with multiple songs this year.

Lake co-authored “Praise You Anywhere” with Hank Bentley, Ben Fielding and Jacob Scooter, while Bentley and Scooter co-produced the track.

Lake is also the first artist this year to open at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums while simultaneously hitting the top of Hot Christian Songs. TobyMac last achieved such a double-up in September 2022, when his album Life After Death arrived at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums as “The Goodness,” featuring Blessing Offor, rose to the Hot Christian Songs summit.

Currently on his Coat of Many Colors Tour — which launched earlier in October and includes supporting act Benjamin William Hastings — Lake makes his next stop in Greenville, S.C., on Nov. 5.

Mariah Carey Scares Off Halloween and Jumps Right Into Christmas Season: ‘It’s Time’

There are good reasons why Mariah Carey is considered the Queen of Christmas. One of them is her punctuality. MC wasted exactly zero minutes getting into the holiday spirit in what has become her annual ritual of warning the Lambily that Christmas is coming, but they should not jump the gun and start stringing lights before Halloween is over. “Not yet,” she likes to tell them.
