Lauren Daigle rolls up her fifth leader on Billboard’s airplay-, sales- and streaming- based Hot Crisian songs chart, as “Hold on to Me” jumps from No. 5 to No. 1 on the June 5-dated list.

The single, released Feb. 26 as Daigle’s first new music in the Christian genre since 2018, hits the pinnacle after Daigle performed on the season finale of NBC’s The Voice on May 25.

The track also drew 1.8 million U.S. streams in the tracking week. On Christian Airplay, it pushes 9-8 for a new high, up 5% to 7.4 million in audience.

With five Hot Christian Songs leaders, Daigle boasts the most No. 1s among women since the chart began in 2003. Carrie Underwood ranks next with three. Among all artists, Daigle is tied for seventh place with Matthew West. MercyMe leads with 13 No. 1s.
