In an interesting turn of events, after only three weeks atop Billboard’s Christian Songs chart, Chris Tomlin’s Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies) slips to number two, as a former number one song, Kristian Stanfill’s One Thing Remains returns to the top for the third time in its chart life and for a fourth week overall. MercyMe’s You Are I Am, the most likely contender to the throne, stays at number three, even as most of the songs in the Top 10 remain stationary and no new songs enter the Top 10 for a fourth week in a row.
That may change, though, as tobyMac’s Steal My Show scores a sharp increase from 14-11 this week. Should tobyMac enter the Top 10 next week – I’m sorry, but I’m sorta rooting for Matthew West’s Forgiveness to slip to #11, I can’t believe I’m saying this – this will complete the dcTalk reunion in the Top 10, the first time the three members of the legendary 90s group were in the Top 10 at the same time. With Michael Tait now leading Newsboys (currently #8 with Your Love Never Fails) and Kevin Max fronting Audio Adrenaline (comfortably ensconced at #9 with Kings and Queens), my fervent hope that we’ll see all three members of dcTalk in the Top 10 at the same time with their own careers, may actually come true! Yay!
