Hillsong Worship finally scores a #1 Billboard Airplay hit. After 33 weeks on the chart, the Australian team’s worship favorite “Who You Say I Am” claims the penthouse position. This is also the team’s second #1 song following “What a Beautiful Name,” which spent 9 weeks at #1 beginning April 8, 2017.
“Who You Say I Am” replaces Lauren Daigle’s “You Say,” which dips to No. 2 after 17 weeks in the Christian Airplay at #1. On the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart, Hillsong Worship’s hit holds at its No. 2 high for a ninth week.
With more than 20 million career album sales and over 1.5 billion career streams, Australia-based Hillsong Worship has helped shape praise & worship over the last two decades through its catalog of songs that continue to be sung by an estimated 50 million churchgoers worldwide each week. Their award-winning single “What A Beautiful Name” spent nine consecutive weeks at #1 atop the National Christian Audience radio chart and remains the #1 most consumed track in Christian music. Concurrently, the single was named Billboard’s No. 1 Hot Christian Song of the Year topping its Hot Christian Songs chart (which blends airplay, streaming and sales data) on Feb. 25, holding strong in the No. 1 position for 34 weeks (through the chart dated Feb. 3, 2018).
