DJ Khaled scores his first No. 1 in his maiden appearance on Billboard‘s faith-based Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs charts as “Use This Gospel (Remix),” featuring Kanye West and Eminem, rockets in at the summit of both surveys (dated Sept. 10).
The song also marks Eminem’s first appearance on the spiritual tallies, while West earns his fifth No. 1 on each ranking.
West initially recorded “Use This Gospel,” with his version featuring Clipse and Kenny G. Released on his 2019 album Jesus Is King, it hit No. 3 on Hot Gospel Songs and No. 6 on Hot Christian Songs that November. The set spent logged 67 weeks at No. 1 on Top Gospel Albums and eight frames at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums.
The updated version of the song launches with 8.6 million streams and 4,000 downloads sold in the Aug. 26-Sept. 1 tracking week, according to Luminate. It also blasts in atop the Christian Streaming Songs, Gospel Streaming Songs, Christian Digital Song Sales and Gospel Digital Song Sales charts.
“Use This Gospel (Remix)” is the first No. 1 debut on both Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs since West’s “Hurricane” last September.
West’s other leaders on the lists are “Follow God”; “Wash Us in the Blood” featuring Travis Scott; and “Praise God.” “Follow God” is from Jesus Is King, while “Hurricane” and “Praise God” are from West’s 2021 LP Donda, which has dominated Top Gospel Albums for 53 weeks (and counting) and Top Christian Albums for 46 weeks.
