At eight weeks on top of the Billboard Christian Songs chart, Mandisa’s Overcomer has become the longest-running number single by a female artist. It passes Joy Williams’ Hide (2005). Congratulations, Mandisa!
I predicted last week that the strongest possible spoiler for Overcomer would be Big Daddy Weave’s The Only Name (Yours Will Be, but that song reverses course, and drops 3-5 this week. At number two – AGAIN – is Matthew West’s Hello My Name Is, which should be – DESERVES TO BE – the number one song of the year. I think it’d be pretty epic if Matthew could get back to number one.
Meanwhile, two former number two songs return to the Top 10 after dropping out for a couple of weeks – Sidewalk Prophets’ Help Me Find It reenters at number 10, while The Afters’ Every Good Thing does it better with a number 9 re-entry.
