Zach Williams Adds Fourth Christian Airplay Chart No. 1 With ‘Less Like Me’

Zach Williams earns his fourth No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart (dated May 8) as “Less Like Me” rises from No. 3 to the top spot. In the tracking week ending May 2, the single increased by 11% to 9.7 million audience impressions, according to MRC Data.

Williams wrote the song with Hank Bentley and Mia Fieldes.

“This song was written to remind me of how imperfect we are as humans, and how all of our victories need to be pointed back to Him,” Williams tells Billboard. “So, with this No. 1, I will embrace the imperfection and point this win right back to God.”

As “Less Like Me” hits No. 1 in its 17th frame, it wraps Williams’ fastest trip to the Christian Airplay penthouse. “There Was Jesus,” with Dolly Parton, led for five weeks following its coronation in its 19th frame, on the chart dated Sept. 12, 2020; “Old Church Choir” reigned for 20 weeks after reaching the apex in its 18th week in August 2017; and his debut entry, “Chain Breaker,” led for 15 weeks after reaching the pinnacle in its 22nd week in November 2016.

Williams has banked his four Christian Airplay No. 1s among eight top 10s. His first top 10 this year, his version of the Yuletide standard “Go Tell It on the Mountain,” climbed to No. 3 in January.

Speaking of the holidays, Williams is working on a seasonal set due later this year. Before that, a deluxe version of Rescue Story, his second full-length, which debuted and peaked at No. 2 on Top Christian Albums in October 2019, is due, with six new songs, July 9.
