Tame Impala

The track lifts 3-1 on Adult Alternative Songs.

Tame Impala scores its first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart with "Lost in Yesterday," which rises 3-1 on the Adult Alternative Songs list dated May 30.

Over Tame Impala's airplay chart history, the band previously peaked at a No. 8 best on Alternative Songs with "Elephant" in October 2013.

"Lost in Yesterday" previously became Tame Impala's first top 10 on Adult Alternative Songs, surpassing the No. 11 high of "Patience" (June 2019), and is the group's first top 10 on any airplay chart since "Elephant."

Tame Impala becomes the second act in a row and third overall in 2020 to nab its first Adult Alternative Songs No. 1. Fellow veteran rockers The Strokes preceded them with four-week leader "Bad Decisions," after Black Pumas ruled for a week in February with "Colors." (Additionally, Nathaniel Rateliff scored his first solo No. 1, "And It's Still Alright," following three leaders with his band Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats.)

Concurrently, "Lost in Yesterday" holds at No. 7 on Alternative Songs after reaching a No. 6 high. On the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, the track rises 5-4 (4.8 million audience impressions), a new high for the act; "Elephant" peaked at No. 12.

"Lost in Yesterday" is from The Slow Rush, Tame Impala's fourth studio album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts dated Feb. 29. Previous Slow Rush single "It Might Be Time" hit No. 39 on Adult Alternative Songs in December.
