‘God’s Not Dead’ and ‘Pray for Me’ on the Billboard Hot 100 Albums chart

On Wednesday night, “God’s not dead” and “Pray For Me” climbed the Hot 100 albums chart to No. 4 and No. 1, respectively, according to Nielsen SoundScan data. 

Meanwhile, “Gods Eyes” became the first new song to enter the Hot 200 since April 1, 2017. 

(For those who are unfamiliar with the Hot Streaming Songs chart, here it is.) 

Gods Eye, from “The Mummy,” topped the Hot R&B/Pop Songs chart for eight weeks in a row, while “Praise the Sun” became No. 8. 

“God’s the most important man in my life, but I still can’t get over how amazing it was to sing it live.

I’m still amazed at how many people are listening to it,” says singer/songwriter Drake. 

And for those who might not have heard of Drake before, here’s what he has to say about the song. 

The song is about how the world is going, but you can’t escape your fear.

It’s the way we make it, Drake says.

And I just feel like it’s a great song to sing live.
