Lauren Daigle's "You Say" ties the record for the most weeks spent atop Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart, as it logs a 61st week at No. 1 (on the chart dated Sept. 28). It matches the reign of Hillsong United's "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)," which began its 61-frame rule in December 2013.

"Say," which first hit No. 1 on Hot Christian Songs on July 28, 2018, drew 5.6 million U.S. streams in the latest tracking week, according to Nielsen Music, and tops Christian Streaming Songs for a 57th week (second only to Skillet's "Monster," which has dominated for 236 weeks since 2013).  

With 5,000 downloads sold, "Say" leads Christian Digital Song Sales for a record-extending 56th frame.

"Say" led Christian Airplay for 17 weeks starting in September 2018 and crossed over for a two-week command on Adult Contemporary, where it spends its 20th week in the top three.
