Product Sticky in list/grid view. Is there no way to make

Product Sticky in list/grid view.
Is there no way to make a product 'sticky' just like posts??
I have mp_list_global_products sorted by date so the newest are seen. There is one special product I'd like to always appear there. I've tried mp_product with product id but it won't easily slot into the 3 column grid I have going on....
