By Hannah Goodwyn
CBN.com — Worship artist Chris Tomlin's new album is burning up the Billboard 200 chart. Sitting at No. 1, Burning Lights is this week's top-selling album across all genres.
At 73,000 copies sold, Tomlin celebrates his first No. 1 on the prestigious Billboard chart, surpassing Taylor Swift, One Directon and Bruno Mars. This feat is garnering attention from big names in the media, including mentions on The Hollywood Reporter and Los Angeles Times.
Tomlin posted the following reaction on his Facebook page yesterday:
"Thank you everyone for the heart and love you gave to Burning Lights. Billboard #1, wow!"
On his Twitter page, Tomlin thanked those who helped make Burning Lights a reality:
"Thank you to @shelleygiglio @m_mccloskey @sixstepsrecords for your heart and love into Burning Lights! Billboard #1 wow!"
"Thank you and congratulations in order to @jason_ingram for bringing his genius and heart to the music of Burning Lights! Countless hours:)"
"Thank you goes out to @edcashstudio and @dmuckala for their production on Burning Lights. Amazing work..."
"To do anything significant or great, it takes an amazing team...I know this full well on this day. They are the strength of Burning Lights"
Burning Lights is the fourth Christian album to make it to No. 1 on Billboard 200. Last year, TobyMac broke the 15-year drought when his latest album, Eye On It, made it to the top.
