Collision Records artist Christon Gray recently released his debut album with the label, School of Roses. The album was highly anticipated in the Christian Hip-Hop market, but was also expected to get attention from people within the secular R&B genre. Billboard Magazine recently announced that the album moved 8,000 copies to move into #9 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10. Check out an excerpt from Billboard’s article below:

Debuting in the top 10 of the list is Christon Gray’s “School of Roses” which moves 8,000 copies to open at No. 9 with Hot Shot Debut honors. The 25-year-old singer/songwriter/producer/rapper has already graced multiple Billboard charts as a member of Christian rap outfit W.L.A.K. (We Live as Kings), whose self-titled debut set opened at No. 1 on Gospel Albums in March 2013 (with 6,000 sold). Gray took a more secular approach to his Collision Records debut, focusing on love, relationships and real-life situations as opposed to strict praise and worship-related matters.
