Today on the show, we chat with Mark Foster of Foster the People! The frontman called in to the Pop Shop from the road to talk about the slow-burning success of the group's crossover hit "Sit Next to Me." Though the single and its parent album, Sacred Hearts Club, were released a full year ago in July 2017, "Sit Next to Me" is now a top 20 hit on Billboard's Pop Songs chart after rising to the top five on Hot Rock Songs in May.
