Lil Baby & Kirk Franklin Victorious Atop Hot Gospel Songs Chart With ‘We Win’

Plus, Brian Courtney Wilson earns his second No. 1 on Gospel Airplay with “Still.”

Lil Baby and Kirk Franklin‘s “We Win,” the first single from the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack, due July 9, blasts in atop Billboard’s airplay-, sales- and streaming-based Hot Gospel Songs chart dated June 5.

The collaboration, released on May 21, marks the first entry on a gospel chart for hip-hop star Lil Baby. Franklin adds his record-extending eighth leader, and third time arriving in the penthouse.

“I’m humbled. There are so many dope gospel artists in this genre, and I’m honored to shed some light on the music that we make,” Franklin tells Billboard. “What else can I say but thank you. Thank you to the Father for letting me borrow something for this record, to Lil Baby for jumping on the track and to everybody that helped make this record possible.”
