AJR has hit No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart with the single "Sober Up," which you can hear right here on ALT 106.7. The song just took the top spot on the chart, previously held by another ALT 106.7 favorite, Alice Merton's "No Roots."
"Can't really believe what we're looking at," AJR tweeted upon seeing the news. "Thank you to our team and everyone who's believed in these weird ideas."
"Sober Up" actually features guest vocals from Weezer's Rivers Cuomo. The song is on AJR's new album, "The Click," which dropped last year.
AJR will hit the road to promote "The Click" this spring. The show hits St. Andrew's Hall on April 15. Win tickets here. XO
SOBER UP IS OFFICIALLY TOP 10 ON THE ALTERNATIVE RADIO CHARTS. This is literally insane. We used to think of the "charts" as this alien thing that only superstars got to be on. If there's a lesson here, it's this: Genres are just unnecessary restrictions. Don't categorize yourself as anything that anyone else has done. Make up your own thing, with the hope that one day, it'll get so fucking big that they'll name that category after you.
