Beck’s ‘Up All Night’ Crowns Adult Alternative Songs Chart

The song is Beck's third No. 1 on the list, all since 2014.

Beck earns his third No. 1 on Billboard‘s Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart, as “Up All Night” ascends 2-1 on the 40-position ranking dated Dec. 9.

“Night” is the second leader from Beck’s recently released album Colors. “Dreams” ruled the ranking for 12 weeks over two years ago, beginning on the list dated July 11, 2015.


Beck’s latest No. 1 continues a later-career chart resurgence of sorts. He earned his first Adult Alternative Songs No. 1, “Blue Moon,” in 2014. In contrast, his other airplay chart-toppers both reigned on Alternative Songs in prior decades: “E-Pro” (2005) and “Loser” (1994).

Concurrently, “Night” rises to a new peak on Alternative Songs (4-3). On the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, the track holds at its No. 5 peak for a third week in a row, attaining 8.7 million audience impressions in the week ending Nov. 26, according to Nielsen Music.

The song scored a nomination for best music video earlier this week for next year’s 60th Grammys.

Colors, Beck’s 13th studio LP, debuted at No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts dated Nov. 4, earning 46,000 units in its first frame.
