The ballad is the first song to have topped both AC & Christian Airplay.

Lauren Daigle lands her first No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart, as "You Say" ascends 2-1 on the Aug. 10-dated ranking.

The ballad dethrones the longest-leading hit in the chart's history: Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," after 33 weeks in charge.

With "You Say" having topped the Christian Airplay chart for 17 weeks beginning last September, the song is the first to have led both that list and the AC survey. (AC launched, as "Easy Listening," in 1961, while Christian Airplay originated in 2003.)  

"You Say" concurrently tops the airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart for a 54th week, a reign second only to the 61-week domination of Hillsong UNITED's "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" in 2013-15.

Meanwhile, "You Say" parent album Look Up Child rules Top Christian Albums for a 42nd week, with 12,000 equivalent album units (up 5%), according to Nielsen Music.
