Imagine Dragons sets fire to another “Billboard” record

Imagine Dragons sets fire to another “Billboard” record

Imagine Dragons has earned yet another Billboard milestone.

Thanks to their new single “Natural,” Dan Reynolds and company are the first artists to simultaneously own each of the top four spots on the publication’s Hot Rock Songs chart, which combines radio airplay with sales and streaming data.

“Natural,” which was released in July, currently sits at number four on Hot Rock Songs. “Believer” is slotted right in front of it at #3, while “Whatever It Takes” and “Thunder” occupy spots #2 and #1, respectively.

While ID is the only band to monopolize the top four spots on Hot Rock Songs, one other artists has held the top three spots at the same time: Twenty One Pilots. The duo achieved that feat with “Ride,” “Heathens” and “Stressed Out.”

As for other Billboard records ID has set, in May they became the first act to chart four singles on the Hot 100 for at least a year.

“Natural” is a standalone single, and will soundtrack ESPN’s coverage of the upcoming college football season, while “Believer,” “Whatever It Takes” and “Thunder” appear on Imagine Dragons’ latest album, Evolve. The band is currently on a U.S. tour behind the record.
