Walk the Moon’s ‘One Foot’ Steps to No. 1 on Alternative Songs

The band earns its second leader, following "Shut Up and Dance."

Walk the Moon ascends 2-1 on Billboard‘s Alternative Songs airplay chart with “One Foot,” the lead single from its new LP What If Nothing.

The track is the band’s second leader on the list, following the four-week No. 1 “Shut Up and Dance” in 2015. The group boasts two other top 10s: “Anna Sun” (No. 10, 2012) and “Different Colors” (No. 7, 2015).

Concurrently, “Foot” paces into the top five (6-5) on the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart with 8 million audience impressions (up 6 percent) in the week ending Jan. 21, according to Nielsen Music. The track also bullets at No. 28 on Adult Alternative Songs.

Like “Dance” before it, “Foot” has earned crossover support, as it continues its ascent on Adult Pop Songs (13-12) and Pop Songs (24-22). “Dance” ruled the former chart for eight weeks in 2015.

What If Nothing, Walk the Moon’s third studio album, debuted at No. 3 on the Alternative Albums chart dated Dec. 2, tying 2015’s Talking Is Hard for the band’s best bow (it later spent a week at No. 1), earning 14,000 equivalent album units in its first week.
