Todd Dulaney & Smokie Norful Top Gospel Airplay Chart With ‘Satisfied’
Todd Dulaney‘s “Satisfied,” featuring Smokie Norful, ascends to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Gospel Airplay chart (dated Sept. 17). In the tracking week ending Sept. 11, the song increased by 7% in plays, according to Luminate.
The coronation marks the sixth for Dulaney and the third for Norful on Gospel Airplay. It’s also the fifth in a row for Dulaney – a new record streak over the chart’s 17-year history. Norful, meanwhile, reigns again after a record wait of over 15 years.
“Satisfied” follows Dulaney’s “Revelation 4,” which led for a week last September. Before that, “Psalms 18 (I Will Call Your Name)” topped the survey for a week in October 2020; “You’re Doing It All Again,” featuring Nicole Harris, led for one frame in September 2019; and “Your Great Name” dominated for eight weeks beginning in March 2018.
Dulaney one-ups Jonathan McReynolds, who boasts an active streak of four Gospel Airplay No. 1s (encompassing his career total), having most recently led with “Grace” in August 2021. McReynolds could extend his streak and tie Dulaney with his latest single, “Your World,” which pushes 18-17 for a new high (up 6%).
Prior to his record run, Dulaney first hit Gospel Airplay as featured on Jessica Love’s “I Draw Near” (No. 19, 2015); notched his first No. 1 with “The Anthem,” which reigned for six weeks starting in April 2016; and hit No. 3 in August 2017 with “Victory Belongs to Jesus.”
