You Deserve It, the sixth album from JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise, has been highly anticipated for months. The excitement created by the album’s self-titled first single has translated into a monumental debut for the project as JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise lands at #1 on three sales charts, and Top-5 on three additional major music charts. Additionally, the celebrated ensemble lands impressively at #33 on the Billboard Top-200 Albums chart.

This exciting debut is especially significant for Hairston, who released the project March 10th on his own Jamestown Music label. “We wanted to establish a system for how we are going to do things at Jamestown Music. I wanted to test everything out with my own project first,” says Hairston. “This response is overwhelming, and I am grateful.”
