Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Hillsong UNITED continues to make waves with their top-selling song, "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)," as they received their first No. 1 radio single in their 15 plus year career. This song comes from ZION, the band's most successful and fastest selling album to date, which released February 2013.

Since the release of ZION last year, "Oceans" continues to chart on four Billboard single charts, including the Hot 100 (13 weeks), Christian Digital Songs (31 weeks), Hot Christian Songs (31 weeks) and Christian Streaming Songs (22 weeks) charts. UNITED has received an overwhelming response to the song that has been the No. 1 Hot Christian Song for 22 straight weeks. The official lyric video has received more than 9.8 million views.

"Last year when ZION released, we saw 'Oceans' climb the sales charts as well as the positive fan response to this song," shares Grant Hubbard, Capitol CMG Label Group, Vice President/National Promotion. "Knowing the song was so special and resonating with the listeners, we wanted to get it into the hands of the radio programmers. UNITED continues to make history with this album and this song, and we are so thrilled to see them receive their first well-deserved No. 1 radio single."

In 2013, UNITED had an outstanding year with ZION's release topping iTunes overall and debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200. The group also toured around the world, including the U.S and selling-out top venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Hollywood Bowl, Radio City Music Hall and more. This year UNITED released The White Album [Remix Project] that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Dance/Electric Albums chart and remains on the chart seven weeks after release. The album also had a limited run on vinyl for Record Store Day earlier this month.
