The song halts the record 30-week reign of Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens."
"Believer," the lead single from Imagine Dragons' upcoming third studio album, rises 2-1 on the chart dated March 25. The song is the Las Vegas band's second leader on the list. Imagine Dragons first led Hot Rock Songs for 23 weeks in 2013 with "Radioactive," the second single from their debut full-length, Night Visions.
"Believer" dethrones Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens," which had dominated for 30 weeks, a record dating to the chart's June 2009 inception. It also stops the duo's streak of leading the chart for all weeks between the charts dated Jan. 9, 2016, and March 18, 2017, except for one: May 14, 2016, when Prince's "Purple Rain" ruled following the icon's April 21 death.
