The always-pioneering Hillsong UNITED made history this month as it became the first Christian act to have a project atop Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
In the week ending March 9, Nielsen/SoundScan reported the band sold 7,000 of their brand-new White Album (Remix Project), which features EDM reimaginings of previously released Hillsong UNITED tunes. That album also hit No. 4 on Christian Albums, marking the band's ninth entry on that Billboard chart.
In response to the Electronic/Dance charting success, Hillsong UNITED posted on their Facebook page: "Humbled and honoured about this! Hope this reaches people that need to see HIM!"
The band also marked another historic milestone with Billboard recently, as their current runaway hit, "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" made a leap to the Billboard Hot 100, making it the first No. 1 on the Christian Songs chart to reach the Hot 100. That single is in its 16th week top the Hot Christian Songs chart.
According to Billboard, Hillsong Church's various worship projects have claimed 32 entries on the Christian Albums chart, with 16 of those reaching its top 10. On the Billboard 200, Hillsong has notched 19 hits, going as high as No. 5 in 2013 with Zion by Hillsong UNITED.
