Brandon Lake’s ‘Gratitude’ Hits 20 Weeks Atop Hot Christian Songs Chart

Mr. Nimbus | 01/04/2024

Brandon Lake’s “Gratitude” reaches a milestone 20th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs chart dated Jan. 6, 2024.

The song, which first reached the Hot Christian Songs apex on the ranking dated Feb. 4, 2023, becomes one of only eight hits to have reigned for at least 20 weeks since the list launched in June 2003 – and the first by a male soloist.

Longest Leading Hot Christian Songs No. 1s:

  • 132 weeks, “You Say,” Lauren Daigle, beginning in July 2018
  • 61 weeks, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail),” Hillsong United, beginning in June 2013
  • 37 weeks, “What a Beautiful Name,” Hillsong Worship, beginning in February 2017
  • 26 weeks, “Something in the Water,” Carrie Underwood, beginning in October 2014
  • 24 weeks, “In Jesus’ Name (God of Possible),” Katy Nichole, beginning in March 2022
  • 23 weeks, “Word of God Speak,” MercyMe, beginning in August 2003
  • 20 weeks (to date), “Gratitude,” Brandon Lake, beginning in February 2023
  • 20 weeks, “Thank God I Do,” Lauren Daigle, beginning in May 2023

As Lake becomes the first solo male to pull off the accomplishment, six of the eight longest leading Hot Christian Songs No. 1s feature female lead singers. (“Gratitude” joins MercyMe’s “Word of God Speak” as the other song above with lead male vocals.) Meanwhile, Lauren Daigle is the only artist with two hits to lead for 20 weeks or more: “You Say” and “Thank God I Do.”

“Gratitude” garnered 1.6 million official U.S. streams and 1.1 million in all-format radio audience and sold 1,000 downloads Dec. 22-28, according to Luminate.
