The most-Shazamed song during Wednesday’s Billboard Music Awards on NBC wasn’t a rock, country or mainstream pop song. Instead, it was a Christian tune.


Lauren Daigle’s “You Say” off of her most recent album ‘Look Up Child’ was the most-Shazamed song during the awards show, beating out performers such as Mariah Carey, DJ Khalid, and Panic! at the Disco, Billboard reported.

For those wondering what Shazam is, this is an app that identifies songs by listening to them. The song accounted for 25 percent of all Shazams during the broadcast and even beat out the combined Shazams for three songs by the Jonas Brothers.

‘You Say’ has enjoyed rare mainstream success for a ‘Christian song’, receiving play on mainstream radio stations and has landed in the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100 in January. It also stood atop Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart for 17 weeks.

Here’s a list of the Top 10 list for the most-Shazamed songs during the Billboard Music Awards:

1. Lauren Daigle, You Say

2. Jonas Brothers, Medley

3. Dan + Shay & Tori Kelly, Speechless

4. Khalid, Talk

5. Mariah Carey, Medley

6. Halsey, Without Me

7. Panic! at the Disco, Hey Look Ma, I Made It

8. BTS featuring Halsey, Boy with Luv

9. Ciara, Thinkin Bout You

10. Kelly Clarkson, Broken & Beautiful

It’s a power-packed and favored season for Lauren Daigle as she also won three awards at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. She won the award for Best Christian Artist, Best Christian album for her album Look Up Child, and Best Christian Song for “You Say.”

Looks like it’s about to be an amazing year for Lauren and we cannot wait to witness what the rest of the year has in store for her.
