Chart Irregularity Not Applicable in Canada

Christian Retailing May-June Print Music ChartFrequently we are reminded that the non-white population demographic in Canada is quite distinct from our U.S. friends.  Every once in awhile, it shows up in the Christian music charts. A decade ago (or more) Fred Hammond frequently charted in the top spots on American lists, but few Christian retailers we surveyed at the time could remember ever selling one of Hammond’s albums. So when Deitrick Haddon showed up in the top spot in the current print edition of Christian Retailing with LXW — League of Extraordinary Worshipers — we decided to go to YouTube to hear some of the music. The genre is unmistakably a mass choir, gospel sound; but what really caught our eye initially was the low view numbers (in the hundreds) on the YouTube videos we were watching. (We since found some higher ones; so apologies to my Twitter followers.) One video has a banner thanking people for keeping the album on the Billboard charts, but we couldn’t find anything in the Christian listings there that corresponds to the current chart position at Christian Retailing.
