RNR News and Notes

It took over 10 years - but someone has finally matched Coldplay's Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends accomplishment of having three songs from the same album reach number 1 on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart.

 

And that band - Cage the Elephant ... with their album Social Cues 

 

 

The songs "Black Madonna" , "Ready to Let Go" and the title track, "Social Cues" have now all reached the top spot for airplay on the radio.  

 

These songs bring the band's tally of #1s to five ( "Come a Little Closer" and "Mess Around" were their others) and they are now tied  for the 10th most Number 1 hits in this category with The Black Keys, Florence + the Machine and The Lumineers. Coldplay and U2 lead all acts in the category -  with 13 No. 1s each. 

 

Take a moment out of your day and revisit the last time we saw Cage - along with Beck and Spoon when the Nightrunning Tour hit Merriweather Post Pavilion last summer HERE
