“It’s amazing what can happen when people collaborate,” Wilson says.
Singer Bryan Andrew Wilson is making a joyful noise on gospel radio. His latest radio single, “I Put You First,” debuts at No. 29 on this week’s Billboard Gospel Airplay chart with the gospel genre’s fifth highest spin increase of the week. The soulful ballad also made its bow at No. 26 on the Mediabase Gospel Airplay chart.
Wilson wrote the song with his brother Aaron Wilson and family friend, Lolitia Newman. “It’s amazing what can happen when people collaborate,” Wilson says. “My brother said Lolitia had a piece of a song and he wanted to know my opinion of it.,” Wilson explains. “It was just a chorus but I felt like something was there. So, I fleshed out the chorus and added verses. Then, my brother added some stuff and now, it’s on the radio. It’s incredible what can happen with just an idea and each person contributing some part to transform the idea into a reality.”
The passionate song of devotion to God was produced by Amos P. Saint Jean (Jonathan Nelson, Shekinah Glory Ministry, The Potter’s House) and it is featured on Wilson’s “The One Percent” album: http://smarturl.it/IPutYouFirst Wilson’s VEVO page hosts a lyric video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NogN0BVCeVI
“The message of the song is simple,” says Wilson. “No matter what’s going on in life. No matter how many hours you’re working, no matter what chaos is going on with your family, this songs says to make time for God and put Him first in your life and when you do that, he’ll take care of everything.”
