The Clark Sisters’ “His Love,” featuring Snoop Dogg, rules Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, rising 3-1 on the ranking dated May 15. In the tracking week ending May 10, it increased by 15% in plays, according to MRC Data.
“His Love” is the third Gospel Airplay No. 1 for The Clark Sisters and the first for hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, who adds his latest gospel chart honors.
Launched in their hometown of Detroit in 1980, The Clark Sisters comprise siblings Dorinda Clark-Cole, Jacky Clark Chisholm, Karen Clark Sheard and Twinkie Clark. (The act was first a quintet; Denise Clark Bradford left in 1986.)
“His Love” was authored by Ben Briggs III, Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Karen Clark-Sheard, Faith Evans, Kierra Sheard, J. Drew Sheard II, Jaila Simms and Snoop Dogg.
“On behalf of the Clark Sisters I would like to say that we are very, very excited,” Karen Clark-Sheard tells Billboard. “We are grateful for the gifts God gave us to be a blessing with our music. To know that we have another No. 1 is exciting, especially during this time and season in the country. The pandemic hasn’t afforded us the opportunity to travel a lot and perform, but our music being heard on radio stations nationally has been a vehicle for our ministry to reach the masses. Thanks to our fans that supported the project, and to gospel radio.”
“His Love” follows The Clark Sisters’ previous Gospel Airplay No. 1 “Victory,” which led for two weeks in June-July 2020. The act first reigned with “Blessed and Highly Favored” for seven weeks in June-July 2007.
