Lauren Daigle’s You Say Breaks Records, Stays at Number 1 on Billboard Charts for 100 Weeks
Just in case you missed it, Lauren Daigle recently achieved something that is, quite frankly, mind blowing! You Say has been number 1 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart for 106 weeks. ONE HUNDRED AND SIX WEEKS! That’s over 2 years!! Wow!
As the official Billboard article says, “The genre-bending ballad is the first track to rule for 100 weeks on any of Billboard‘s multi-metric “Hot”-named song charts, which, like the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, blend streaming, airplay and sales data, as tabulated by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.”
Lauren Daigle had the following to say about her achievement…
When I was a little girl, I would dream of moments like this. 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. 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 that “You Say” has spent 100 weeks on @billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart! Thank you ALL!!
