Billboard names Skillet Top Christian Streaming Songs Artist for second year in a row
2016 has most definitely been a great year for Skillet's hit track "Feel Invincible." The track recently went to #1 on both the Active (Mediabase) and Mainstream (BDS) Rock charts, and has made history by spending 19 weeks at the top of the Christian Rock chart, the most weeks ever since the chart's inception on Billboard.
The video for "Feel Invincible" has been viewed over 21 million times on YouTube and streamed over 16 million times on Spotify. "Feel Invincible" has also been a hit in the sports world, having been used by the NFL's Monday Night Football, Major League Baseball (MLB), National Hockey League (NHL), WWE during their Battleground Pay-Per-View, TBS' E-League and Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Sports Awards. The No. 1 song was also chosen by the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) for use throughout the entire 2016 football season.
Additionally, the debut Christian radio single from UNLEASHED "Stars" hit #1 at Christian Hot AC and continues to climb the National Christian Audience, and AC Monitored and Indicator charts heading into 2017.
Loudwire named UNLEASHED as one of their Top 20 Albums of 2016 saying "Skillet has come into their own in recent years, making a successful crossover from the Christian Rock charts to the Mainstream Rock charts. That continues with their UNLEASHED album, an eclectic effort led by the anthemic single 'Feel Invincible.' There is plenty of potential to go deep here, with the arena rocker 'Back From the Dead,' the ballad 'Watching For Comets' and the album closer 'The Resistance' feeling radio ready and instantly addictive."
"Feel Invincible" was also selected as one of the Top 20 Rock Songs of 2016 by the outlet, saying "This one will get you up and moving! Skillet's chart-topper 'Feel Invincible' quite simply is undeniable. This uplifting rock anthem has that kick in the pants to get you going and it feels like the ultimate sports anthem. That's probably why it's been co-opted for many a sports promo over the last year. Raise your fists and rock along."
"The UNLEASHED Tour" Garners Skillet their Most Successful Mainstream Tour of their Career as U.S. dates sold out in Minneapolis, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Cleveland and more. In the fall of 2016 Skillet also wrapped their most successful European headline run to date with the trek including sell out and packed crowds in cities including London, Paris, Vienna, Budapest and more.
