    Christian Artist Lauren Daigle’s ‘You Say’ Places #1 On Billboard Chart, Beating Out Mainstream Artists Like Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran

    Grammy Award-winning Christian artist Lauren Daigle has seen immense success over the last year, following the release of her album Look Up Child. 

    Many of the songs from the album have hit the top of the Christian charts, but a few, “You Say,” in particular, has spent time towards the top of the secular music charts.

    This past week “You Say” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart, beating out Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You.” Beating out Maroon 5’s song was substantial because it had spent the last 33 weeks at No. 1, and set the record for the longest hit to sit at No. 1.

    Aside from placing No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart, “You Say” has also placed No. 1 on the top of the Christian Airplay for 17 weeks since last September.

    According to Billboards Hot Christian Songs, the song has also had the largest amount of airplay, steaming, and sales, sitting at No. 1 for the past 54-weeks.

    Not only did she top the Hot Christian Songs chart, but in January, “You Say” was on both the Christian Airplay and Adult Pop Songs charts, making her the first female to sit on both.

    At the Billboard Awards in May, Daigle was also mentioned as “You Say” was the most ‘Shazamed” song of the year, which is a music service that helps you find the title of a song by the music.

    Daigle has seen incredible success with her entire album “Look Up Child,” as well which set a new record for Billboard last month, sitting on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums for 44 weeks. The album has been No. 1 for 39 weeks which is a new record for Billboard.

    It’s no surprise to anyone who has followed Daigle’s journey over the past year, that she has received both a secular and Christian appeal.

    In a January interview with 104.3 FM, the singer was asked if she considered herself a Christian artist, even though her music was becoming more mainstream.

    “I feel like those labels get put on you by other people,” Daigle said. “I was reading articles, I read them here in there, and one of them said Christian artist and the other ones said just artist. But I think part of me is just an artist because it encompasses everything. That’s kind of how I see myself.”

    “I remember talking so much about, ‘Let’s just make sure that we make music that we believe in that’s pure, true sound and something that we love, and it’ll transcend wherever it’s supposed to go. But let’s make sure that it’s pure authentic to who we are,’” she added.
