NEW YORK, NY – August 12, 2022 – After nearly 25 years as a Grammy-winning inspirational artist, television star and syndicated radio host, Erica Campbell is still celebrating her career milestones. This week, Erica is celebrating her first #1 gospel radio single as a solo artist. His latest offering, “Positive,” which was released in March, currently sits atop Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and the Mediabase Gospel Radio chart. “Positive” is the lead single from the highly anticipated full album set for release in Spring 2023 via My Block Inc.
“I’m so excited because I really wanted this song to change people’s moods,” the singer said in a video thanking fans for their support. “I wanted them to talk life about themselves and expect the big and know there is greatness inside of you. And you helped me do that! So thank you for helping me become #1 positive! Erica’s intent for the song is pretty clear in her lyrics, which she wrote alongside Juan Winans and Warryn Campbell (who also produced the song). “Positive” encourages listeners to lean into the assurance that comes from knowing that God is in control, even in uncertain times.
While “Positive” is her first bow at No. 1 on Gospel radio as a solo artist, Erica is no stranger to that No. 1 spot. Her 2015 single “I Luh God” with Big Shiz is topped Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart – a hybrid chart that includes radio, streaming and digital downloads. “Positive” entered that same chart 12 weeks ago and remains in the Top 20. The song is also Erica’s last single to hit the Top 10 on Billboard’s US Gospel Chart.
In addition to her continued success as a performer, Erica Campbell also touches fans’ lives as the host of the nationally broadcast morning show. Rise! Mornings with Erica Campbell. Currently available in over 30 markets nationwide via Reach Media, the show is setting a new bar for syndicated morning programming by creating a high-energy experience for listeners through a range of musical styles, powerful interviews, animated features and a new approach to news and listeners. commitment.
