Kirk Franklin Lands No. 1 Record, Makes Gospel Music History


Kirk Franklin has a lot of awards and titles under his belt, but he just scored a new one this week for best first-week digital single for “Wanna Be Happy?” Not just for this month, or this year, but in the history of gospel music sales.

He actually beat his own record from back in 2011 for “I Smile,” which sold 11,008 digital units in its first week.

“Wanna Be Happy” sold 11,882 digital units and comes from Franklin’s upcoming 11th studio album due November 2015. It’s his first single in four years.
