My Top 10 Hits – Week 198

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday November 29TH 2020:

Happy 35TH Anniversary !  35 years ago this weekend this weekly hit music chart was born. Aside from a 3-year hiatus (1992-1995) and a 7-year hiatus (2010-2017) this chart has been going strong ever since I was a teenager living in the south of England. It’s gone through many different genres of music from pop to hip hop to hard rock to electronic dance to Christian. We’re in the 198TH week of this current era that started in the middle of February of 2017, and the hits keep counting up !

Andrew Ripp becomes the 3RD artist in a row to secure the # 1 spot with his very first hit (following Cain and Matty Mullins). His “Jericho” is my new # 1 smash this week – the 13TH # 1 smash of 2020 – and the 55TH # 1 smash over the past 198 weeks. We’ll see if it can hold on into and through the month of December to wrap-up 2020.

We Are Messengers have moved-up strongly over the past couple of weeks from # 10 to # 7 to # 5. “Image Of God” is their 6TH hit since 2017. They are currently my # 10 artist overall since 2017.

20-year-old Cade Thompson has my highest new entry this week at # 8. It’s his very first appearance on my chart. When I first heard this song on K-LOVE I instantly loved it. I actually thought it was Ryan Stevenson at first, and then I finally looked it up and realized that it’s Cade Thompson. This is a quick follow-up to his earlier single this year – “Provider” – which I liked for its quirkiness, but it failed to make my chart due to a lack of radio airplay (probably because it was too quirky).

Here’s the official lyric video for Cade’s new hit, “Every Step Of The Way”:

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
