Plus, chart action for Fred Jerkins & Lauren Daigle.

For King & Country, the duo of brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, nets its fifth No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart, as "God Only Knows" rises 2-1 on the April 13-dated tally with 10.1 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.

As "God" hits the summit in its 13th chart week, the act ties its fourth leader, 2018's "joy.," for its fastest flight to No. 1. On the airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart, "God" places at No. 2 for a sixth week, the tandem's best rank, first achieved by "joy."

On Gospel Airplay, Fred Jerkins' "Victory," featuring Last Call, ascends 2-1, marking each act's first leader on the list. The song rises 5-3 on the multi-metric Hot Gospel Songs chart, powered largely by 2.7 million in radio reach.

Meanwhile, Lauren Daigle's crossover hit "You Say" extends its rule atop Hot Christian Songs to 37 weeks (41.6 million airplay impressions; 8 million streams; and 16,000 downloads sold). The song ties Hillsong Worship's "What a Beautiful Name" (2017-18) as the chart's second-longest-leading No. 1, after Hillsong United's "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)," which dominated for 61 weeks starting in December 2013.

"You Say" continues to score multi-format airplay, as it keeps at its No. 6 high on Adult Contemporary and No. 20 best on Pop Songs, while reaching the top 20 (21-20) on the all-genre Radio Songs chart.
