Jelly Roll has earned his second No. 1 at Country Radio with his faith-filled, uptempo anthem, ‘Need A Favor’.

The song has overtaken Luke Combs’ streaming giant, ‘Fast Car’, which continues to break a range of chart records, making Jelly Roll's triumph this week all the more impressive.

‘Need A Favor’, which appeared on the Nashville native's acclaimed debut country album, Whitsitt Chapel, finds Jelly opening up about his complicated and seemingly transactional relationship with God. The genre-blending crooner vulnerably asserts, “I only talk to God when I need a favor / And I only pray when I ain't got a prayer”.

This accessibility of this down-to-earth, imperfect spirituality is something that courses throughout the entirety of Whitsitt Chapel, such as on the likes of ‘Nail Me’, ‘Halfway To Hell’, ‘Hungover In A Church Pew’ and the Lainey Wilson-assisted ‘Save Me’.

This theme also pervaded Jelly Roll's first ever Country Radio No. 1, ‘Son Of A Sinner’, which topped the charts at the start of 2023, setting the tone for what's shaping up to be an outstanding year for the trailblazing singer-songwriter.

Shortly after earning his debut country chart-topper, Jelly Roll took home three awards at the CMTs in April, before ‘Son Of A Sinner’ was then certified Platinum.

It surely won't be long before ‘Need A Favor’ becomes his second Platinum country song, with the energising track predicted to remain at No. 1 for a number of days to come.

Although Jelly's next official single is yet to be confirmed, you'd imagine it will be his blockbuster Lainey Wilson duet, ‘Save Me’. The two performed the introspective ballad at the 2023 ACM Awards, and it remains one of the most popular cuts on Whitsitt Chapel.
