The album also landed in the Top 10 on Billboard's Album Sales chart. Additionally, My Jesus made recent label history, scoring the largest debut week in more than 15 years by a Capitol Christian Music Group-signed new artist.
In addition to topping Billboard's Christian & Gospel albums charts, Wilson's My Jesus dominated in other categories placing within the Top 8 on the following charts: Internet Albums, Digital Albums, Current Digital Albums, Current Albums Sales, Top Albums, and Album Sales.
"I never would've dreamed I'd be releasing a record to the world and it going number one in the first week," says Wilson. "God is so faithful, and I'm just blown away by His goodness! All Glory to God. Here's to all He will continue to do through this project!"
"Every once in a while, a special new artist comes along that stands out from the rest," shares Brad O'Donnell CCMG, Co-President.
