OMG!!! Lecrae's "Anomaly" Is No.1 Album On Billboard 200!!! | Drops "Non-Fiction" In Celebration


Lecrae is the proof that whatever the world can do, a Christian should do it better!!!

lecrae1billboardChristian rapper Lecrae keeps breaking records and now he has earned his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 as his new Anomaly opens atop the list. It sold 88,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 14, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s also the first chart-topper for Lecrae’s label, Reach Records.

Anomaly‘s launch is Lecrae’s best sales week, trumping the 72,000-unit start of 2012’s Gravity, which debuted and peaked at No. 3. (Gravity was also Lecrae’s highest-charting album — and only top 10 — until Anomaly‘s arrival.)

Anomaly is the Grammy winner’s sixth No. 1 on the Gospel Albums chart and his fifth leader on Christian Albums. (Most Christian hip-hop releases are eligible to appear on both sales charts.)

Thus, Anomaly is the first title to crown both Gospel Albums and the Billboard 200, and just the fifth set to lead both Christian Albums and the Billboard 200. In terms of the latter achievement, it follows Chris Tomlin’s Burning Lights (in 2013), TobyMac’s Eye on It (2012), LeAnn Rimes’ You Light Up My Life — Inspirational Songs (1997) and Bob Carlisle’s Butterfly Kisses (Shades of Grace) (1997).

In celebration of the new milestone, Lecrae drops “Non-Fiction” where he reflects on his journey,” Reach Records added. “It’s our gift to you. We are excited about the days ahead and glad to share this moment with you.”
