The track reigns in its 29th week.

Shaed hits No. 1 on Billboard's Rock Airplay chart with "Trampoline," which ascends 2-1 on the July 6-dated ranking.

The act's first leader takes over at the top in its 29th week on the tally with 8.9 million audience impressions, up 6%, according to Nielsen Music.

"Trampoline" completes the third-longest trip to No. 1 in the Rock Airplay chart's decade-long history, after Fitz and the Tantrums' "Out of My League" (33 weeks, 2013) and Cold War Kids' "First" (30 weeks, 2015).

Shaed is the first act to score a first Rock Airplay No. 1 in 2019 and is the first act in just over a year to lead in a first chart visit, following lovelytheband with "Broken" (June 9, 2018).

Shaed, a three-piece led by vocalist Chelsea Lee, is the first group led solely by a woman ever to top Rock Airplay. Honorable mention to Fitz and the Tantrums, via "Out of My League"; the act mostly sports lead vocals by frontman Michael Fitzpatrick, although Noelle Scaggs provides backing and occasional lead vocals.

Three songs by lead solo women have topped Rock Airplay: Lorde's "Royals" (2013) and "Team" (2014) and Alice Merton's "No Roots" (2018). Two women have also reigned in featured roles, both in 2012: Kimbra on Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" and Janelle Monae on fun.'s "We Are Young."

"Trampoline" led the Alternative Songs airplay chart for two weeks in June and hit No. 28 on Adult Alternative Songs in May. It bullets at No. 14 on Adult Pop Songs and No. 33 on Pop Songs while lifting 84-77 on the all-genre, multi-metric Billboard Hot 100.
