CCM artist Lauren Daigle reaches a historic milestone this week when her hit single "You Say" spends a 100th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart (dated Sept. 5). This makes "You Say" the longest reigning #1 song on the Hot Christian Songs chart.
To date, the song has drawn 2.3 billion in radio airplay audience and 605.7 million U.S. streams and sold 929,000 downloads. Daigle wrote "You Say" with Jason Ingram and Paul Mabury. It was released as the lead single from Daigle's third studio LP Look Up Child, which bowed at No. 1 on Top Christian Albums in September 2018
"When I was a little girl, I would dream of moments like this," Daigle tells Billboard. "Upon hearing the news, I called my family. We laughed. We cried. We made jokes. We celebrated."
"I am so honored and want to thank all the people involved in achieving this accomplishment," Daigle says. "I may sing and write, but there are many people working behind the scenes. My sincere gratitude goes out to them. To be a part of a song that has not only made history but has lived inside the homes of families raising babies, widows needing comfort, teenagers needing a friend, those who have lost and those who have gained, that is a gift I'll never fully put into words. Simply amazed! Thank you."
Meanwhile, Daigle is launching a series of outdoor shows she's calling "Autumn Nights." Check out the announcement below:
