Last week, The Lumineers’ “Ophelia” rose to #1 on the Mediabase alternative airplay chart.

This week, it retains its throne.

“Ophelia” received a format-leading ~2,907 spins during the May 29-June 4 tracking week. Up 20 spins from last week’s mark, the tally keeps The Lumineers’ single ahead of the pack.

Blink-182’s “Bored To Death” is the closest competitor. Up two places, it claims #2 on the strength of its ~2,647 weekly spins (+33).

Spun ~2,582 times this week (+150), Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Dark Necessities” follows at #3. It was #5 last week.

The Strumbellas’ “Spirits” (#4, -1 | ~2,572, -108) and twenty one pilots’ “Ride” (#2, -3 | ~2,562, -152) complete the Top 5.

While there are some positional shifts, there are no new additions to the Top 5 this week. There is, however, a new arrival within the Top 10.

Up one place, KONGOS’ “Take It From Me” earns #10 on this week’s Mediabase alternative chart. It received ~1,579 weekly spins (+169).
