Beck scores his second leader on Adult Alternative Songs as “Dreams” rockets 7-1 in just its second week on the tally (dated July 11). “Dreams” makes the fastest flight to No. 1 on the list since Dave Matthews Band’s “Funny The Way It Is” ascended in just two weeks in 2009.
Beck scored his first leader on Adult Alternative Songs just last year with “Blue Moon,” a single from his most recent album, Morning Phase (which won the Grammy for album of the year). The funky new song will precede his 10th studio album and also lifts 13-6 on Alternative Songs.
This is Shinoda’s first release as Fort Minor since 2006 and first entry on the list (which began in 2009). Fort Minor previously reached as high as No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Where’d You Go” in 2006. Shinoda has said a new album is possible and he will perform as Fort Minor, but no release has been announced beyond the new song.
