Kirk Franklin has achieved a historic milestone by spending his 100th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Gospel Songwriters chart (dated March 11). He is the first person to reach this milestone on a songwriters chart. In June 2019, Billboard launched various genre-specific rankings and Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts, including Christian, gospel, country, rock & alternative, R&B/hip-hop, R&B, rap, Latin, and dance/electronic. Franklin expressed his gratitude to his supporters, saying that as a songwriter, nothing is more rewarding than seeing your work resonate with people on a deep level. He feels humbled by the support he has received and thanks everyone who played a role in bringing his music to life.
