Lauren Daigle’s single “You Say” breaks record for most weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart.
The Grammy Award-winning singer’s single made history for being at the top of the chart for 62 weeks. It surpassed Hillsong United’s “Ocean (Where Feet May Fail)” that was at the top for 61 weeks.
“I really pondered the journey of the song ‘Oceans,’ and I remember seeing the impact that song made on so many people. It was just so beautiful to me,” Daigle said after finding out that her song made chart history. “I hoped that I could be a part of something that shakes the earth like that song. I didn’t know that would ever happen, and I had no idea that ‘You Say’ would be something that would parallel the life of ‘Oceans.’ ”
The inspirational song now has the longest reign since the survey launched in 2003. Lauren Daigle’s other single “Rescue” has been on charts for 30 weeks.
The Louisiana native continues to make history with her album “Look Up Child” being on top of the Top Christian Albums for its 42nd week. The album is now the longest-reigning collection on Billboard’s Top Christian Album chart.
