Lauren Daigle song 'You Say' spends 100 weeks at top of Christian chart

by Cara Bentley

Christian singer Lauren Daigle has thanked fans for keeping her single at the top of the Christian songs chart for two years. 

'You Say' has been No.1 for a record-breaking 100 weeks and has spent 112 in the chart. 

It was written by her, Jason Ingram and Paul Mabury and is from the album 'Look up Child', which also holds the record for longest time at the top spot of the Top Christian Albums chart and has only just been pushed out of the way by Lecrae's new album. 

Daigle told Billboard how she reacted to the news: "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 honoured 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."

The song has received attention outside the Christian music industry as well, doing well in the general pop charts and winning Daigle a Grammy award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance in 2019.
