An up-close chat with the singers of the Billboard Hot 100's No. 3 smash 'Ho Hey.'
"We never really thought it would do what it did. It's kind of an unlikely tune to reach as many people as it has," Wesley Schultz, lead singer and guitarist for the Lumineers admits of the folky, stomp-and-clap "Ho Hey," the group's debut hit that bullets at No. 3 in its 33rd week on the Billboard Hot 100.
Still, the song has become a multi-format smash, topping Billboard's Rock Songs, Alternative, Adult Pop Songs and Triple A charts. Parent album "The Lumineers" this week reaches No. 1 on the Rock Albums chart this week at last in its 42nd frame.
