Kirk Franklin‘s all-star single “My World Needs You,” featuring Sarah Reeves, Tasha Cobbs and Tamela Mann, ascends 2-1 in its 24th week on Billboard‘s Gospel Airplay chart (dated July 15).

Franklin and Mann each complete their fifth trip to No. 1 on Gospel Airplay, tying James Fortune & FIYA for the most leaders in the chart’s 12-year history. (More on Fortune in a moment …)

Cobbs earns her second Gospel Airplay No. 1, after her debut single “Break Every Chain,” which topped the list for seven weeks in 2013. Reeves, known more in the contemporary Christian genre, scores her first Gospel Airplay leader in her first appearance on the chart. (She has just inked a new deal with Word Records.)

“World” is the third single from Franklin’s Losing My Religion album, following “123 Victory,” featuring Pharrell Williams, which peaked at No. 2 on Gospel Airplay (June 25, 2016) and ruled Hot Gospel Songs, which blends airplay, streaming and sales data (Sept. 10, 2016).
