TobyMac has once again taken the the top spot on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart and debuted Top 5 on Billboard's Top Albums Chart with his latest studio recording, The Elements. Being described as "Brave," "compelling" and "fresh," media have taken notice of the latest 11 track collection of music from the 7X GRAMMY® winner.
"It's electronic arena rock sounds right in step with the millennials in Twenty One Pilots or Imagine Dragons." -- USA Today & The Tennessean
"The Elements is a true work of musical art. It is raw, authentic and powerful." -- Digital Journal
"The new record features his signature catchy hooks, but adds a reflective and slightly somber tone, the result of his experience the past few years."- Guideposts
Among the most talked about tracks on the record is "Starts With Me" centered around racial unity. Tennessean called it "overt," Music Row notes it as "the most arresting on the album" and CBN called it a "powerful one." "Scars" which he shared with Billboard upon the announcement of The Elements was "closest" to him, has also been one of the most asked about on the project -- including from CCM which noted him as the innovative music man.
On top of the chatter, radio listeners continue to resonate with "Everything" which is currently at No. 3 at Hot AC, No. 6 at AC Indicator, No. 5 at Christian Airplay and No. 7 at AC Monitored. The track follows "I just need U." which marked the multi-platinum selling artist's biggest song in six years.
