COIN Cashes In First Adult Alternative Airplay No. 1

"Chapstick" leads a decade after the band formed.

COIN earns its first No. 1 on a Billboard songs chart, as “Chapstick” rises to the top of the Adult Alternative Airplay tally dated Feb. 26.

The band, which formed in Nashville in 2012, scored previous airplay chart success with “Talk Too Much,” which hit No. 8 on Alternative Airplay in February 2017. “Chapstick” is COIN’s second entry on that chart, having reached No. 16 on the Feb. 12 survey.

As COIN reigns with its first Adult Alternative Airplay entry, it’s the second act to earn an initial leader on the list in 2022, following Band of Horses with “Crutch” (Jan. 8). COIN is the first act to reign in its first appearance on the chart since The Marias, whose “Hush” hit No. 1 last September.

On the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart, “Chapstick” ranks at its No. 20 high for a third week, with 1.6 million audience impressions, according to MRC Data. COIN previously appeared on the chart with “Talk Too Much,” which reached No. 16 in January 2017.


“Chapstick” introduces Uncanny Valley, COIN’s fourth studio album, due March 25.
