According to Billboard magazine, gospel duo Mary Mary broke the record for the longest chart-run by a group on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with their Grammy winning single, "God in Me."

The hit record from their album, The Sound, has spent 64 weeks on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, surpassing Dru Hill's "In My Bed," which spent 63 weeks on the chart from 1997-98.

To add to the impressive feat, the duo also holds the longevity record among gospel songs on this chart, surpassing Kirk Franklin's "Looking for You," which ran for 60 weeks in 2005-06.

Last month, Mary Mary took home a Grammy Award in the Best Gospel Song category for "God in Me." This was the duo's third Grammy Award. To add to an incredibly successful year "God in Me" celebrated seven consecutive weeks at the #1 spot on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart.

Mary Mary was also a big winner at the 25th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards tying for the most wins and taking home every trophy the group was nominated for including the Song of the Year Award for "God in Me" and the Group/Duo of the Year Award. Mary Mary also won an American Music Award and a BET Award for The Sound.
