Marvin Sapp hits No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel Airplay Chart

Marvin Sapp’s “You Kept Me” has achieved a remarkable feat on the Billboard Gospel Airplay chart, spending two weeks at the number one position. This milestone comes in its 37th week on the chart, rising from #2 to the top spot. Featured as the second single from Sapp’s 14th album, “Substance” (Elev8/ThirtyTigers), the song is readily available on all digital music platforms.

“You Kept Me” was crafted by the combined talents of Marvin Sapp, Jarmone Davis, Christopher Leach, and Aaron Lindsey. It follows the success of “All in Your Hands,” Sapp’s previous hit that not only reached #1 on Gospel radio but also secured a nomination for Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song at the 54th NAACP Image Awards.

This ballad stands out with its heartfelt gratitude expressed to God, acknowledging His presence through both triumphs and trials.

“In this time of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, a dominant feeling is our thankfulness to God for maintaining our well-being – in health, emotions, and finances. We survived when many didn’t, and it’s because God preserved us. ‘You Kept Me’ embodies our appreciation for this,” remarks Sapp.

Producer, co-writer, and musician Aaron Lindsey highlights the significance of Sapp’s iconic voice for “You Kept Me.” He shares, “Recognizing the song’s potential, we focused on conveying God’s steadfastness and hoped to uplift and bless listeners with the song’s message. Our intent was to make every aspect of the song – from the arrangements to the smallest details – a testament to God’s unwavering presence in our lives, regardless of our circumstances.”
