Lauren Daigle Ties Carrie Underwood For No. 1 Record On Hot Christian Songs Chart

Lauren Daigle's "You Say" leads Billboard's streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart for a 26th week (on the list dated Jan. 26), tying Carrie Underwood's 2014 hit "Something in the Water" for the longest rule by a woman in the survey's 15-year history.

The songs share third place overall, beneath Hillsong United's "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" (61 weeks at No. 1 starting in December 2013) and sister act Hillsong Worship's "What a Beautiful Name" (37 frames beginning in February 2017). Both of those songs are also sung by women: "Oceans," by Taya Smith, and "Name," by Brooke Ligertwood.

"You Say," which was co-penned by Daigle, rules Christian Digital Song Sales for a 24th week (13,000 sold, up 7 percent, according to Nielsen Music) and Christian Streaming Songs for a 22nd frame (6.6 million U.S. streams, up 15 percent) and ranks at No. 2 on Christian Airplay after logging 17 weeks at No. 1.


"You Say" also continues its crossover at radio, debuting at No. 40 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, while bulleting at No. 8 on Adult Pop Songs and No. 19 on Adult Contemporary.

NEW TOP 10s: "Stand in Your Love" by Bethel Music's Josh Baldwin becomes his first top 10 on Hot Christian Songs (11-10). It hikes by 7 percent hike to 7.9 million impressions and holds at No. 7 on Christian Airplay.

Plus, Tamela Mann banks her 10th Gospel Airplay top 10 with "Potter" (12-10). Mann extends her mark for the most top 10s among women and ties Kirk Franklin for third place overall, after James Fortune & FIYA (12) and Marvin Sapp (11).
