Lauren Daigle’s chart-topping, record-breaking hit song You Say has just made history, becoming the biggest Christian song of all time. You Say has topped Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs for 62 weeks running, making it the longest time a song has held that coveted number one spot.
Christian Headlines reports, “The previous contender, Oceans by Hillsong United, was the inspiration behind the 28-year-old’s success. Oceans sat at number one on the chart for 61 weeks.”
Daigle shared the story behind You Say in a behind the scenes look at its creation:
“This song is just a reminder of identity. A reminder that, when I’m weak, He’s strong, so how do I change that and bring that into my everyday life?” Daigle said. “When I feel inadequate, how is it that there’s always these moments where I feel like God just steps in and supersedes my inadequacies.”
Daigle’s monumental accomplishment comes days after she announced a headline arena world tour, starting in Australia.
