Coldplay [ABC]

A week that began with Coldplay’s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance ends with news that the band’s “Adventure Of A Lifetime” is the new #1 song at alternative radio.

While the song actually suffered a loss in weekly airplay, it still outpaced Cage The Elephant’s reigning champion “Mess Around” during the official tracking week. It thus still grabs the top spot on Mediabase’s chart.

Up one place, “Adventure” received ~2,918 spins during the February 7-13 tracking week (-12). “Mess Around” slips a spot to #2 with ~2,891 spins (-91).

Twenty One Pilots’ former multi-week #1 “Stressed Out” holds at #3 thanks to its ~2,473 weekly spins (-89), while Foals’ “Mountain At My Gates” rises a spot to #4 on the strength of ~2,263 plays (+4).

Thanks to a weekly spin count of ~2,250 (+87), Nothing But Thieves’ “Trip Switch” climbs one place to #5. This marks its first Top 5 appearance.
