Noah Kahan Scores His First Airplay Chart No. 1 With ‘Dial Drunk’

Noah Kahan earns his first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart, as “Dial Drunk” rises to the top of the Adult Alternative Airplay list dated Sept. 9.

Kahan first reached Adult Alternative Airplay in 2018 with “False Confidence,” which hit No. 9 the following February. Prior to “Dial Drunk,” he logged his top peak with “Stick Season,” which reached No. 2 in November 2022. He boasts four top 10s on the tally, with, additionally, “Homesick” having hit No. 7 this May.

Concurrently, “Dial Drunk” leaps 5-2 on Alternative Airplay. It’s Kahan’s highest charting song there, having eclipsed the No. 21 peak of “Stick Season.”

On the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart, “Dial Drunk” bullets at its No. 3 high with 4.5 million audience impressions, up 3%, Aug. 25-31, according to Luminate.

The song is scoring success at other formats, too, as it holds at its No. 25 high on Pop Airplay and jumps 31-27 on Adult Pop Airplay. Boosting its airplay at those formats is its remix with Post Malone, released in July. (A DJ on SiriusXM’s Spectrum, which reports to the Adult Alternative Airplay chart, recently joked that the channel is playing the “pre-Malone” version.)

On the most recently published, Sept. 2-dated Hot Rock & Alternative Songs survey, “Dial Drunk” returned to its No. 3 best. In addition to its radio airplay, the song drew 9.6 million official streams (up 1%) and sold 2,000 downloads in the U.S. (up 2%).

“Dial Drunk” was first released, featuring Kahan only, on the deluxe version of his 2022 album Stick Season. After debuting at No. 5 on the Top Rock & Alternative Albums tally in October 2022, it rose to No. 1 on the June 24, 2023, sparked by the release of its deluxe edition. The set has earned 702,000 equivalent album units to date.

All charts dated Sept. 9 will update on Wednesday, Sept. 6 (a day later than usual due to the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. Monday, Sept. 4).
