Powered by the greatest weekly airplay gain for a song inside the Top 15, Bishop Briggs’ “River” enters the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase alternative airplay chart.

The artist’s breakthrough single, which is the alternative format’s current iHeartRadio “On The Verge” selection, received ~1,795 spins during the June 19-25 tracking week. Up a healthy 207 plays from last week’s count, the tally earns “River” the #10 position on the latest chart.

It was #11 last week.

“River” is the lone addition to the Top 10 on this week’s chart, which features a new #1 in Blink-182’s “Bored To Death.”
