FLAME tops Billboard chart
Posted by Chris Pugh
Clear Sight Music artist FLAME is off to a strong start with his new album, The 6th, which debuted at #1 last week on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart, while claiming the #2 spot on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart, #8 on the Rap Albums chart and #67 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album, distributed by Central South and Infinity Music Distribution, immediately shot to #1 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop Chart, and held court at #8 on the Top Albums Chart for the first week of release, sharing the Top 10 with albums from such chart-topping artists as Adele, Big Time Rush and Bruce Springsteen.
“Watching the album climb the charts is encouraging,” said FLAME. “Hearing about how the album is connecting with people is even more exciting.”
A GRAMMY®, four-time Dove Award and two-time Stellar Award nominee, FLAME has toured the world while running his own label, Clear Sight Music. His 2010 release, Captured, shot to #1 on the Billboard Gospel Chart and to #5 on the Billboard Christian Chart.
