Look Up Child is the third studio album by American contemporary Christian music singer and songwriter Lauren Daigle. It was released on September 7, 2018, through Centricity Music.[1] The album received the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.[2] It was nominated for Top Christian Album at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.[3]

Background[edit]

In an interview with Billboard's Jim Asker, Daigle said "I don't shy away from singing about my faith. I think it conveys honesty, and people see authenticity. More people are going to relate to my music if it's sincere. I believe that wholeheartedly. That's how you reach people that might not have felt that [the Christian genre] was their home before. I want this to be such a record of joy, such a record of hope, that people experience a childlikeness again. In the time of making this record, I had to remember who I was as a child. I want people to reflect on, 'The innocence of my childhood ... how do I see myself through those eyes again? How do I love myself like that again? Where's that joy? Where's that hope?"[4]

Singles[edit]

"You Say" was released as the lead single from the album on July 13, 2018.[5] It impacted Christian radio on July 9, 2018.[6] The song launched into the top five of the US iTunes Sales Chart upon its release, and debuted at No. 53 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Lauren's first entry on the chart, where it has so far reached a peak at No. 29.[7][8] It was released to Top 40 radio on January 15, 2019.[9] “You Say” has spent 35 weeks atop the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart, the longest of any solo artist in the chart’s history.

"Look Up Child" was released as the second promotional single. The song debuted at No. 33 on the Hot Christian Songs chart, and has reached a peak of No. 5. It was released to Christian radio on January 4, 2019, as the second single from the album.[10]

Promotional singles[edit]

"Still Rolling Stones" was released on August 10, 2018, as a promotional single.[11] The song debuted at No. 17 on the Hot Christian Songs chart. It peaked at No. 11.

Commercial performance[edit]

Look Up Child debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 with 115,000 album-equivalent units, of which 103,000 were pure album sales.[12] It is the highest-charting album by Daigle, and the highest-charting Christian album overall since Hard Love by Needtobreathe reached No. 2 on the chart in 2016. The album became the highest-charting Christian album by a woman on the Billboard 200 since LeAnn Rimes' You Light Up My Life peaked at No. 1 in 1997.[12]

As of January 2019, the album has sold 208,000 copies in the U.S.[13]
