Burning Lights Tops Billboard 200 Tweet
Accumulating the biggest first-week sales numbers of his history-making career, GRAMMYÂŽ winner and multi-platinum recording artist Chris Tomlinâs latest album, Burning Lights, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. With more than 72,000 units sold, Burning Lights marks Tomlinâs first trip to the top of the Billboard 200 and only the fourth time in history that a Christian music album has entered that chart at No. 1. The scans for Burning Lights, released via sixstepsrecords, reflect a 60 percent increase over first-week sales of Tomlin's last studio album, 2011âs And If Our God Is For UsâŚ, which moved 45,000 units.
The success of Burning Lights this past week comes on the heels of an outpouring of acclaim from national media including The New York Times, USA Today and Billboard, among many others. As one of the most acclaimed worship leaders of our time, critics have applauded Burning Lightsâ âsolid songwritingâ and âstirring melodies,â underscoring Tomlinâs efforts of crafting songs for the church that cross cultures and generations. The day of its release (Jan. 8), Burning Lights claimed the No. 1 spot on the iTunesÂŽ Christian & Gospel Albums Chart.
