Imagine Dragons’ “Natural” remains the biggest song at alternative radio.

Played 3,908 times during the September 9-15 tracking period (+193), “Natural” celebrates a third week atop the Mediabase alternative radio chart.

Not simply enough for another week at #1, the spin count breaks the Mediabase record for most plays in a single week. “Natural” had just set that record one week ago.

Played 3,102 times during the tracking week (+168), AJR’s “Burn The House Down” spends another week at #2. Weezer’s “Africa” remains #3 with 2,827 plays (-59), while a spin count of 2,595 (+107) lifts Dennis Lloyd’s “Nevermind” one place to #4.

Walk The Moon’s “Kamikaze,” which received 2,572 plays (+52), slips one spot to #5.
