Christon Gray released his new album School of Roses on Collision Records last week and peaked at #1 on the R&B iTunes chart. Billboard.com covered the success of the album today.
"Debuting in the top 10 of the list is Christon Gray's "School of Roses" which moves 8,000 copies to open at No. 9 with Hot Shot Debut honors. The 25-year-old singer/songwriter/producer/rapper has already graced multiple Billboard charts as a member of Christian rap outfit W.L.A.K. (We Live as Kings), whose self-titled debut set opened at No. 1 on Gospel Albums in March 2013 (with 6,000 sold). Gray took a more secular approach to his Collision Records debut, focusing on love, relationships and real-life situations as opposed to strict praise and worship-related matters."
Christon's charting positions are:
#5 R&B Albums
#9 R&B and Hip Hop Albums
#44 Top 200
