Hillsong UNITED Continues to Break Records with Top Single "Oceans"
Internationally known worship band, Hillsong UNITED keep breaking records with their song "Oceans" (Where Feet My Fail)." It is their highest charting and selling single and cracks the longest reign on Billboard's airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Christian Songs chart as they marked their 24th week at the top. This shatters the record that has been in place since 2003 with MercyMe's "Word of God Speak."
This week UNITED graced the Billboard headline for chart moves in the company of Coldplay and Eric Church
Hillsong UNITED will be in attendance on June 1st at the K-LOVE Fan Awards as they perform the band's most successful single. They are nominated for "Worship Song of the Year" - fans can still vote for UNITED by going here
Earlier this month "Oceans" earned the band their first No. 1 radio single and the official lyric video has received more than 10 million views. This song comes from ZION, the band's most successful and fastest selling album to date, which released February 2013.
"Last year when ZION released, we saw 'Oceans' climb the sales charts as well as the positive fan response to this song," shares Grant Hubbard, Capitol CMG Label Group, Vice President/National Promotion. "Knowing the song was so special and resonating with the listeners, we wanted to get it into the hands of the radio programmers. UNITED continues to make history with this album and this song, and we are so thrilled to see them receive their first well-deserved No. 1 radio single."
Hillsong UNITED have always been groundbreakers and showed that again with their latest release, the White Album [Remix Project], they have made history. The album, released March 3, is the first Christian-based album ever to hit No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
The White Album [Remix Project] also debuted at No.4 on Billboard's Christian Albums chart its first week of charting. The project features a collection of 14 of their most popular songs from previously released UNITED projects, including fan-favorites "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)," "With Everything," "From The Inside Out," "Like An Avalanche" and ten more tracks remixed by various mix engineers and musicians.
