The Pretty Reckless’ “Follow Me Down” is in hot pursuit of the multi-week #1 standing achieved by predecessors “Messed Up World” and “Heaven Knows.”
It moves one step closer this week.
Thanks to the week’s greatest spin gain (+121), the latest “Going to Hell” single rises three places to #11 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. The song received a 761 weekly spins from the mainstream rock stations monitored by Nielsen BDS.
(“Follow Me Down” is also rising on Mediabase’s corresponding active rock airplay chart. That chart’s second-greatest weekly gainer (+117), “Follow Me Down” rose to #12 on the strength of its 871 weekly active rock spins.)
In spending five weeks atop Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs, the aforementioned “Heaven Knows” tied Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” as the chart’s longest-reigning song with female lead vocals.
When “Messed Up World” rose to #1, it made The Pretty Reckless the first female-led band/group to score consecutive #1s since The Pretenders did so with “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and “My Baby.”
TPR was the only band to achieve that feat with its first two charting singles.
