    Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise” joins an exclusive club of songs that have topped Billboard’s weekly airplay chart for half a year or more, as the track rebounds 2-1 to earn its 26th nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on Gospel Airplay.

    The song becomes one of only seven tracks that have dominated a Nielsen BDS-based airplay ranking for six months or more.

    Billboard ‘s Gary Trust writes: ”Noticeably, Gospel Airplay boasts three of the seven longest airplay chart reigns. Coincidence? Likely not. The momentum of certain gospel hits can steamroll, as, after they grow ubiquitous at radio, or sometimes simultaneously, they become popular with church choirs, worship leaders and ministers of music, thus, finding new audiences with congregants that may or may not be gospel radio listeners. That appeal, invariably, elongates the songs’ relevance and familiarity and can prolong their dominance on gospel radio.”
