Kirk Franklin Spends 20th Week at No. 1 On Gospel Songwriters Chart

Kirk Franklin rules Billboard‘s Gospel Songwriters chart for a 20th total week, as his hit single “Love Theory” logs its 38th week atop the Hot Gospel Songs survey (dated Oct. 26).

Notably, Franklin is the only act to lead the Gospel Songwriters chart, as he’s claimed the throne for all 20 weeks of the chart’s existence, dating to its June 15 inception.

Franklin is the only credited writer on “Love Theory.” He co-produced the track with Shaun Martin, Max Stark and Ronald Hill, and all four concurrently tie at No. 6 on the Gospel Producers chart.

The weekly Gospel Songwriters and Gospel Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot Gospel Songs chart; As with Billboard‘s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).

Atop the Gospel Producers chart, Ay’Ron Lewis leads for a third week, thanks to his production credits on James Fortune’s “I Am,” featuring Deborah Carolina, which places at No. 6 on Hot Gospel Songs; Zacardi Cortez’s “You Don’t Know” (No. 9); and Lisa Knowles-Smith’s “Great Big God” (No. 21).
