Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here’s this week’s chart:

There’s no change at the top of my chart, as MercyMe hold on for a 6TH consecutive week at # 1 with their 2ND single from their upcoming album. “inhale (exhale)” drops online on Friday April 30TH 2021, and it’s a 16-track album that starts with “inhale” and ends with “exhale”. “Say I Won’t” is the 14TH track on it, and the one right after it – “Almost Home”. The 2 tracks have spent a combined 18 weeks (and counting) at # 1. (“Almost Home” was # 1 last Resurrection Sunday 2020.)
BUBBLING UNDER just outside my Top 10 is debut artist Leanna Crawford with her song “Mean Girls”. She’s from the Seattle Washington area. She’s been writing and performing music for God for about 9 years now, and “Mean Girls” appears poised to be her breakthrough smash onto Christian radio. Personally – the first few times I heard “Mean Girls” on the radio I thought it to be a strange song for K-LOVE to play. Why are they playing a teen pop ballad ? Am I still listening to K-LOVE ? After a dozen or so “spins” of hearing it – now I’m singing along to it. I’m starting to learn its lyrics too. I especially like this part of the song:
♫ I smile and I pretend it doesn’t hurt
But the older that I get it just gets worse
Lord – find me and remind me that my worth
Is worth so much more than their words ♫
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.
