As you may be aware if you read the news on HNHH this morning, Lecrae's new album Anomaly debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling over 88,000 copies opening week. Not only is this an achievement in and of itself, it's the first time an album has debuted at #1 on both the Gospel Albums chart and the Billboard 200.
The race between Lecrae and Jhene Aiko for the Billboard 200 #1 spot was a close one, but Lecrae has come out on top. The rapper's new album Anomaly snagged a #1 debut, after moving a reported 88,299 units, according to Hits Daily Double.
Lecrae's upcoming album, Anomaly, is due out September 9th, and today, the rapper has given us yet another leak from the project. "All I Need Is You" is a bouncy R&B-leaning track, built off of a funky guitar line, and punchy bassline.
Both Lecrae and Andy Mineo were two rappers featured on our recent list of 5 Christian Hip-Hop Artists Infiltrating the Mainstream, and as they continue to do just that, they're linking up for a tour centered around Lecrae's new album Anomaly.
In 2012, Christian spitter Lecrae made history by becoming the first rapper to win the "Best Gospel Album" Grammy for his project Gravity, which featured contributions from Big K.R.I.T., No Malice, 9th Wonder, Boi-1da and many more.
