The song is the first to hit the century mark across all of Billboard's "Hot" charts.
The genre-bending ballad is the first track to rule for 100 weeks on any of Billboard's multi-metric "Hot"-named song charts, which, like the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, blend streaming, airplay and sales data, as tabulated by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
"When I was a little girl, I would dream of moments like this," Daigle tells Billboard. "Upon hearing the news, I called my family. We laughed. We cried. We made jokes. We celebrated."
"I am so honored and want to thank all the people involved in achieving this accomplishment," Daigle says. "I may sing and write, but there are many people working behind the scenes. My sincere gratitude goes out to them. To be a part of a song that has not only made history but has lived inside the homes of families raising babies, widows needing comfort, teenagers needing a friend, those who have lost and those who have gained, that is a gift I'll never fully put into words. Simply amazed! Thank you."
