Kierra Sheard brings Kanye West’s reign with the #1 Gospel album for the last 6 months to a halt with her latest “KIERRA.”
Her latest album marks the first new No. 1 on Top Gospel Albums since Kanye West’s first entry in the genre, Jesus Is King, which debuted atop the list dated Nov. 9, 2019, and governed the chart for 25 frames.
Sheard earns her fifth Top Gospel Albums No. 1, all of which have arrived at the summit. She last led with Graceland, her most recent LP before Kierra, in August 2014.
“It’s been several years since my last album, so I’m thankful that the music and the messages are resonating with people,” the award winning singer told Billboard. “I pray that Kierra inspires everyone that hears it to rely on their faith. The response has been amazing and I’m excited and truly grateful.”
