The act is the first with two leaders on the list in 2020.

Tame Impala scores its second No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart, as "Is It True" tops the tally dated Oct. 24, rising 2-1.

It's also the band's second ruler in a row, following "Lost in Yesterday," which reigned for a week in May.

Tame Impala is the first act in 2020 to score more than one No. 1 on Adult Alternative Songs.

Concurrently, the song reaches new highs on both Alternative Airplay, where it jumps 22-19, and the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock Airplay chart, where it zooms 20-15 with 2.6 million audience impressions, up 17 percent, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

"Is It True" is the latest single from The Slow Rush, Tame Impala's fourth studio album, released in February. It debuted as the group's first No. 1 on Top Rock Albums and at a career-best No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200, and has earned 361,000 equivalent album units to date.
