WOW HITS 2020: WHAT’S YOUR PREDICTION (PART 5)? [FINAL PREDICTIONS]

So, a few months has gone by, and here we are in July 2019, and so what does that mean? One final WOW Hits 2020 predictions, of course! We all know that WOW Hits is the album that causes many polarising views out of any album of a Christian nature, that releases each and every year. And since my last prediction in mid-May, we’ve come to hear some more great songs of hope and encouragement. Should WOW Hits 2020 be timely to current radio songs and trends, or should they stick with proven artists and songs time and time again? Maybe, a bit of both. Here’s hoping this year’s compilation gets it right, but it’s highly doubtful. So ahead of the official WOW Hits 2020 release in either early October or late September, and the official WOW Hits 2020 track listing releasing in August sometime; here’s my fifth and final educated guess at the tracklist for WOW Hits 2020. Happy predicting!

  3. okay, i’m a little concerned here….

    I found a website, it’s German (not sure if I trust it, though) and it’s about WOW Hits 2020. It says

    Due to expiring contracts the “WOW Hits 2020″ will not be published! As a good alternative, however, the label “Capitol Christian Music” has now created the following Best Of Album: “SOZO Playlist: Top Christian Hits”

    Not sure if I trust it though

    1. I did in fact find another website that says this:

      Article no. 095000967 | Published / Captured: 28-09-2019 | Edition: 1 | Language: English | Cover: CD | Label: SCM Hänssler | Shipping weight: 100 g | Dimensions: 142 x 125 x 11 mm

      I don’t know what’s going on to be sure

      1. I did, in fact, find the SOZO Playlists album. If they’re replacing WOW Hits with this tracklist, they’re losing their minds.
        1. Everything- tobyMac
        2. Who You Say I Am- Hillsong Worship
        3. Haven’t Seen It Yet- Danny Gokey
        4. Trust In You- Lauren Daigle
        5. Build My Life- Pat Barrett
        6. Is He Worthy?- Chris Tomlin
        7. Dead Man Walking- Jeremy Camp
        8. Red Letters- Crowder
        9. You Know My Name- Tasha Cobbs Leonard ft. Jimi Cravity
        10. Reckless Love- Cory Asbury
        11. YOUR NAME IS POWER- Rend Collective
        12. Changed- Jordan Feliz
        13. Greater Things- Mack Brock
        14. Fighting For Me- Riley Clemmons
        15. Another In The Fire- Hillsong UNITED

  4. Also, don’t worry about my prior comment. I have an alternative album if WOW Hits don’t get made, my Christian Hits album. I can give you the Spotify and YouTube links if you want..

  8. Hi guys,

    I’ve been speculating what WOW could do with WOW Hits 2020 lately as well (if the SOZO playlist doesn’t replace it), and been enjoying your posts. They give one food for thought.
    Here is some honest speculation of my own:

    I noticed that WOW made a few similarly good and poor decisions with WOW Hits 2018 and WOW Hits 2011-omitting a highly popular song by MercyMe, having one double-up song on disc 1, choosing Matthew West’s latest-practically new-radio single, and a few other things.
    With WOW Hits 2019 and WOW Hits 2012, there are other similarities. As some examples, there are 2 double-up songs on disc 1 and 1 on disc 2, a song by MercyMe (from an album that came out just the year before), no song by Newsboys present, arguably an untimely track from NEEDTOBREATHE, and a song by Skillet being #7 on disc 2.

    Now, these WOW Hits do have differences between each other, and have similarities with other WOW Hits cds. For example, WOW Hits 2011’s song choice for Jeremy Camp was not the current single, but their WOW Hits 2018 choice was. WOW Hits 2016 Deluxe Edition is the only other WOW Hits cd besides WOW Hits 2019 Deluxe Edition featuring a chart-topper by Citizen Way and Blanca as a solo artist. And from comparing the tracklists, one sees both WOW Hits 2016 and 2019 dropped the ball with many things done correctly the previous year (WOW Hits 2015 and 2018, respectively) that many Christian music fans had appreciated. WOW does not tend to copy entire tracklist decisions, despite parallels here and there.

    So, pending what happens, we could see several repeated strengths and weaknesses between WOW Hits 2020 and WOW Hits 2013 (or 2017), variably brightening or dimming the value of the album as a whole. Yet, WOW may do something completely outside our imagination, or mash up the decisions of WOW Hits 2009, 2013, and 2017 if they wanted to. This connection may not exist. Whatever they choose, it’ll still be nice to see what happens, and ponder how close/far we were.

  9. Jesus Freak Hideout says under its ‘Music Out This Week’ heading on the right side of its home page that “SOZO Playlists: Top Christian Hits” by Capitol/Sparrow will release Friday August 30th, if not earlier this week. I hope that list isn’t the same one that was listed in a previous comment, because this gives me a bad feeling it might be.

  10. If WOW Hits 2020 is not going to be made, this is what I would do here:

    Disc One:
