Also, another top 10 "Victory" for Elevation Worship.

Big Daddy Weave notch their sixth leader on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart, as "I Know" rises 2-1 on the list dated April 25, up 7% to 11.6 million audience impressions in the week ending April 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

"In those times when we're feeling abandoned, feeling like we're forgotten, we know that God is good," frontman Mike Weaver, who co-wrote the song, tells Billboard. "He is with us and for us even in the most terrible seasons of our lives. That's what this song is about. We're so thankful for people receiving that message and standing on what they know."

With six Christian Airplay No. 1s, the outfit ties for King & Country for the eighth-most in the history of the chart, which launched in 2003. MercyMe leads with 17.

Plus, with its 16-week jaunt to the Christian Airplay apex, "I Know" completes Big Daddy Weave's second-fastest trip to No. 1. Its first leader, "Every Time I Breathe," took 14 weeks to reach the top in 2007.

Also on Christian Airplay, Elevation Worship earns its fourth top 10, as "See a Victory" advances 11-9, up 9% to 7.6 million in audience. The song is the worship collective's first entry in the tier since "Resurrecting," which hit No. 4 in April 2019.
