Tye Tribbett Posts First Billboard Top 10 Debut

Tye Tribbett-Greater ThanCongratulations to Tye Tribbett, whose brand new release Greater Than is already proving to be his greatest work to date. The new release debuts atop the Billboard Top Gospel Albums & Top Christian and Gospel Albums Chart, #4 on the Top Digital Albums Chart and #9 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, selling nearly 30,000 units. This marks Tribbett’s single greatest sales week in his career and his first Billboard Top 10 entry.

The 12-track release is fueled by the album’s lead single “If He Did It Before (Same God)” which currently sits at #3 on the Billboard Top Gospel Songs Chart. He’s also been on a feverish national promotional tour, making stops in nearly every major market across the country. Greater Than is the first release for Tribbett on the new imprint Motown Gospel and also serves the first release for the brand new label.

“The critics and the fans have spoken loudly and clearly,” says Bill Hearn, President & CEO Capitol CMG. “Tye Tribbett is back with his best work to date. The entire team at Motown Gospel is very proud to help connect Tye and these incredible new songs with music fans all over the world. Together we are off to an amazing start.”
