Matthew West has topped both the Billboard Christian Airplay chart and Mediabase Christian AC chart with “Me On Your Mind,” his 25th No. 1 (12th as an artist and 13th as a songwriter). West is set to release a duet version of the track featuring Anne Wilson on Aug. 12.
The poignant track, penned by West with Jeff Pardo and Anne Wilson, has garnered over 12 million streams and follows his other chart-toppers “What If,” “The God Who Stays,” and “Truth Be Told.”
“I woke up to the news that ‘Me on Your Mind’ is No. 1 and I’m completely blown away,” shares West. “I am thankful for an amazing team at Provident Label Group, and specifically to Jeff Cruz, Charles Van Dyke and the amazing radio team who have championed one song after another and carried them to our radio friends across the country.”
He continues, “I remember telling my wife the idea of this song about how God has us on his mind while we were on a walk one day. I was looking ahead as we walked down the road and didn’t hear much of a response from her. But when I turned to look at her, she had tears in her eyes and quietly said, ‘You need to write that song.'” He adds, “It was a rare moment when I could tell a song was going to be special even before it was finished. It’s exciting to see the song resonate in a similar way with so many people and I hope all who hear it will be powerfully reminded that no one is just a face in the crowd. We are known, seen, listened to, and loved by the God of all grace.”
On Aug. 21, the reigning K-Love Fan Awards Male Artist of the Year will bring his headlining show, “A Night of Worship at the Mother Church with Matthew West and Friends,” to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
He’s also set to take the stage at the Nashville Songwriter Awards on Sept. 20 performing alongside Thomas Rhett, Walker Hayes, Babyface and more. The five-time Grammy-nominated artist will release his sixth book, The God Who Stays, on Sept. 6.
