At a time when Christian albums are making tremendous waves on hip-hop and electronic-dance music charts, Collision Records artist Christon Gray is making his presence known.

The R&B singer and We Live As Kings rapper’s new album, School of Roses, released yesterday and debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes R&B charts, above John Legend and Toni Braxton & Babyface—although both of those albums released more than a month ago.

Perhaps even more impressive, though, is Gray’s ascension to the Top 10 of the iTunes general charts. Currently sitting at No. 8 on the “Top Albums” listing, School of Roses has climbed as high as No. 5. 

The project, which was highly rated by NRT, is currently charting above major-label new releases from pop duo Karmin, the TV show Glee and electronic dance music artist Avicii. 

Gray is in good company in the iTunes Top 10, with Erica Campbell (of Mary Mary) hitting No. 7 with her solo debut, Help, and Kari Jobe’s Deluxe Edition of her latest, Majestic, reaching No. 5.
