X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” Remains #1 at Alt Radio; Beck, Elle King Go Top 10

X Ambassadors (NBC)

Separated comfortably from the rest of the pack, X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” earns a third straight week atop the Mediabase alternative airplay chart.

“Renegades” tops this week’s chart on the strength of the 3,029 spins it received during the June 21-27 tracking week. Its nearest competitor again came in the form of twenty one pilots’ “Tear in My Heart,” which received 2,579 spins within the official seven day tracking window.

Already a comfortable #1, “Renegades” continues to enjoy significant weekly airplay gains. This week’s spin total of 3,029 bests last week’s mark by a healthy 252 spins. Only two alternative songs enjoyed greater weekly gains.

Neither of those songs is yet within striking distance of #1.

Both, however, reach the Top 10 on this week’s chart.

Beck’s “Dreams” leads the charge. Thanks to its 1,697 weekly spins (+679), it rises ten places to #6 on the listing.

Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s,” which ranks as alternative’s second-greatest gainer, rises four places to #9 this week. It received 1,512 (+310) tracking week spins.
