Lecrae’s ‘Anomaly’ Album Tops Billboard Charts
It's not everyday that an album by a Christian rapper dominates the Billboard charts. Lecrae just pulled off that feat his seventh studio album, 'Anomaly.'
In fact, this is the first album of its kind to be on the Billboard 200, Digital Album, Rap Album, Christian Album and Gospel Album charts simultaneously. The effort sold 88,000 copies in its first week.
And it's likely the 34-year-old's star will shine even brighter after tomorrow night (Sept. 18), when he visits 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' to perform the album track 'All I Need' alongside the Roots.
'Anomaly' features guests such as Crystal Nicole, Kari Jobe and Andy Mineo, to name a few. The project is the follow-up to Lecrae's 2012 LP, 'Gravity,' which sold an impressive 70,490 units in its first week of release.
This Grammy-winning rapper's popularity is continuing to soar in 2014. His brand of hip-hop provides some much needed balance in a world filled with lyrics of fancy cars, naked women and violent imagery.
