Lauren Daigle’s album sets new Billboard record

Christian artist Lauren Daigle’s album 'Look Up Child' has broken a Billboard record after being number one on the Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart for 39 weeks.

The album recently won her a Grammy, was certified platinum and beat popular secular musicians such as Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B to reach number three on the overall Billboard 200 chart.

The Louisiana native also made headlines in January when she became the first female to have a song on both the Christian Airplay and Adult Pop Songs chart.

 

Only The Fray's song 'How To Save A Life' has reached the same kind of widespread audience when they charted in 2006-7. 

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old Louisiana native debuted the video of "Rescue" which is the second single to be released from her third studio album, "Look up child".

  

Rescue is probably the most personal song from Look Up Child,” Daigle said in a statement.

“It was written for someone very close to me who was going through a difficult time. I wanted something that would comfort them in their time of need. That’s the purpose of the song, to give hope to people who feel lost.”
