Kings of Leon Wrap Quickest Trip to No. 1 on Adult Alternative Airplay in a Year

After four years away, Kings of Leon are back at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Airplay chart.

“The Bandit,” the lead single from the quartet’s upcoming studio album, rises 2-1 in its fifth week on the tally to crown the ranking dated Feb. 20.

Kings of Leon notch their fourth Adult Alternative Airplay No. 1. The band first ruled with two-week leader “Use Somebody” in August 2009, followed by seven weeks atop the chart with “Radioactive” beginning in December 2010. The third one was a doozy: “Waste a Moment” dominated for 15 weeks beginning in October 2016, slotting into a tie with Coldplay’s “Clocks” in 2003 for the second-longest reign in the chart’s 25-year history. The record-holder, U2’s “Beautiful Day,” led for one week longer, for 16 total weeks on top in 2000-01.
