The track also tops Adult Alternative Songs for a third week.

The Lumineers' "Gloria" reaches No. 1 on both the Rock Airplay and Alternative Songs rankings dated June 22. It also leads Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart for a third week.

"Gloria" rises 2-1 on Alternative Songs, becoming the folk rock act's fourth leader and first since "Cleopatra," which led for two weeks in March 2017.

On the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, "Gloria" ascends 3-1, up 9% to 9.3 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music. The Lumineers earn their second leader and first since their breakthrough hit "Ho Hey" in September and October 2012; since, all five of the band's entries have reached the top 10 (with 2016's "Ophelia" spending an entire year on the tally, having peaked at No. 2 behind Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Dark Necessities," which ruled for 14 weeks).

"Gloria" is The Lumineers' second song to triple up atop Rock Airplay, Adult Alternative Songs and Alternative Songs charts and the first to dominate all three lists simultaneously.

"Gloria" is the lead single from III (due Sept. 13), The Lumineers' third studio album and first since 2016's Cleopatra.
