Milky Chance’s “Stolen Dance” Hits #1 at Alt, Fall Out Boy Reaches #21

Already in the Top 40 at hot adult contemporary radio, Milky Chance’s international crossover “Stolen Dance” finally reaches #1 on the radio format where it made its (American) name.

According to Mediabase, “Stolen Dance” leverages a weekly spin count of 2,823 to rank as alternative radio’s most-played song.

“Stolen Dance” reaches the chart’s apex by leapfrogging Vance Joy’s multi-week leader “Riptide.” That song, which is also in the top forty at Hot AC, now holds #2 on the strength of 2,785 during the September 7-13 tracking period.

Other top five alternative hits include Big Data’s former #1 “Dangerous (featuring Joywave)” (#3), Dirty Heads’ “My Sweet Summer” (#4) and Weezer’s “Back to the Shack” (#5). The former two songs hold at last week’s positions. The lattermost tune rises one place to make its first Top 5 appearance.

Other movers at alternative this week:

— Bastille’s “Flaws” surges two places to reach a new high of #9.

— Death from Above 1979’s “On the Verge” track “Trainwreck 1979” enters the Top 15 at #15.

— Meg Myers’ “Desire” jumps one spot to a new peak of #20.

— Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries,” which launched this week, begins its chart run at #21. It received 540 plays during its first week of availability.

— Arctic Monkeys’ “R U Mine?” elevates eight places to a new high of #28.

— Twin Atlantic’s “Heart and Soul” enters the Top 30 at #29.

— Bleachers’ “Rollercoaster” surges eighteen places to #30.

— Jack White’s “Would You Fight for My Love?” reaches the Top 40 on the strength of an eight-position gain to #39.
