Noah Kahan & Post Malone’s ‘Dial Drunk’ Tops Alternative Airplay Chart

For the first time for each, Noah Kahan and Post Malone lead Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart as “Dial Drunk” lifts to the top of the survey dated Sept. 16.

The song has far surpassed Kahan’s previous best on Alternative Airplay, set by “Stick Season,” which reached No. 21 in February.

Malone previously peaked as high as No. 23 on Alternative Airplay with “Circles” in February 2020.

Kahan and Malone are the first solo artists to reign on Alternative Airplay in over a year. The last was BoyWithUke, who led for a week in July 2022 with “Toxic.” In between, 16 songs by groups reigned.

“Dial Drunk” concurrently rules Adult Alternative Airplay for a second week. It’s Kahan’s first No. 1 there; the version predominantly played on adult alternative radio is the original featuring only Kahan.

On the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay tally, “Dial Drunk” remains at its No. 3 best with 3.6 million audience impressions, Sept. 1-7, according to Luminate.

On the most recently published multimetric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart (dated Sept. 9), “Dial Drunk” ranked at No. 18, following its No. 3 debut and peak in June. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 8.9 million official U.S. streams and 2,000 downloads in the Aug. 25-31 tracking week.

“Dial Drunk” is on the deluxe edition of Kahan’s album Stick Season, which arrived June 9 after the standard version was released in October 2022. It has earned 727,000 equivalent album units to date.

All Billboard charts dated Sept. 16 will update on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
