The song has now ruled both the Alternative Songs & Adult Alternative Songs charts.
The Head and the Heart notches its second No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs airplay chart, as "Missed Connection" rises 3-1 on the list dated July 27 with a 14% gain in plays at the format in the week ending July 21, according to Nielsen Music.
The band first led with "All We Ever Knew" for a week in December 2016, which was also its first-charting title on the tally. It followed with the No. 21-peaking “Rhythm & Blues” in May 2017 prior to the ascent of “Missed Connection.”
The new No. 1 previously topped Adult Alternative Songs for a week in June, becoming the band’s third leader.
