Gospel crooner, Jason Nelson‘s first album in three years, Close (Jaelyn Song Music /Tyscot / FairTrade), has debuted at No. 5 on the Music Connect Current Gospel Albums sales chart for the week ending August 20th.
The twelve-track set features a mix of soulful, up-tempo tracks, as well as the solid worship ballads for which he’s known. The album’s first radio single, “Residue,” is currently No. 8 with a bullet on the Billboard Gospel Airplay chart.
Close is Nelson’s most adventurous music collection yet. It boasts up-tempo R&B-styled tracks such as “Close” and “Show Me the Meaning.” Then, there are also poignant worship ballads like “Holy,” “What A Name,” and “Breathe.” Osby Berry, known for his collaborations with Cross Worship, shows up for the anthem-styled praise and worship track, “You Are.”
Grammy® winning R&B star, Chrisette Michelle’s velvet-like vocals blend seamlessly with Nelson’s golden tone on the wispy track, “Absent Minded.” It could easily fit into a playlist of R&B ballads such as “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar and H.E.R. or “Say So” by PJ Morton and Jojo. As a bonus, the album closes with a stripped-down acoustic rendition of the song.
