"Something Just Like This," with The Chainsmokers, is Coldplay's first leader on the list since "Viva La Vida" in 2008.
Coldplay notches its first No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart since 2008, as "Something Just Like This," with The Chainsmokers, climbs 3-1 (on the list dated June 10). The song is Coldplay's first leader on the survey since "Viva La Vida," which reigned for eight weeks, from the charts dated Aug. 23 through Oct. 11, 2008.
Coldplay ends the longest break between No. 1s on Adult Pop Songs: eight years and eight months. The band passes the six-year, four-month and one-week gap between Train's "Calling All Angels" in 2003 and "Hey, Soul Sister" in 2010, while Maroon 5 waited five years, 10 months and a week between "She Will Be Loved" (2004) and "Misery" (2010). (The chart began in Billboard magazine in March 1996.)
