Singer Lauren Daigle’s latest album, Look Up Child, has become the longest-reigning album on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart.
The compilation spent 39 weeks on top of the chart, making it the longest reign in the Nielsen Music era. Look Up Child surpassed Switchfoot’s The Beautiful Letdown which spent 38 weeks on top of the Christian charts in 2004-05.
Daigle’s LP debuted at No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums Chart in September 2018. It also reached No. 3 on the overall Billboard 200 chart following its release, beating out popular secular musicians such as Drake, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B that week.
The Louisiana native further made history with the album’s lead single, “You Say.” In January, the songstress became the first female to have a song both on the Christian Airplay and Adult Pop Songs. Daigle is holding the duel chart title along with The Fray’s “How to Save a Life,” which was released in 2006-07.
At the time, “You Say” also entered its 18th week at No. 1 on the Christian charts which made it the longest reign for a female artist.
