The Black Keys Top Alternative Airplay Chart With ‘Beautiful People’

The Black Keys snag their seventh No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart via “Beautiful People (Stay High),” which rises to the top of the March 23-dated tally.

The song becomes the duo’s first ruler since “Wild Child” led for two weeks in May 2022. The act first reached No. 1 with “Tighten Up,” a 10-week topper beginning in November 2010.

Concurrently, “Beautiful People” ranks at No. 2 on the Adult Alternative Airplay chart, descending after a five-week command. It also remains at its No. 22 high on Mainstream Rock Airplay.

On the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock & Alternative Airplay chart, the tune places at its No. 3 best for a seventh straight week, with 5.7 million audience impressions, up 4%, March 8-14, according to Luminate.

The most recently published multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs list (dated March 16) found “Beautiful People” ranked at No. 49. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 436,000 official U.S. streams March 1-7.

“Beautiful People” is the lead single from Ohio Players, The Black Keys’ 12th studio album, due April 5 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch/Warner Records. The LP’s predecessor, Dropout Boogie, debuted at its No. 2 peak on the Top Rock & Alternative Albums chart in May 2022. It has earned 149,000 equivalent album units to date. On the Billboard 200, the set launched at its No. 8 best, marking the act’s sixth top 10. The Black Keys led the all-genre chart with Turn Blue in May 2014.

All Billboard charts dated March 23 will update on on Tuesday (March 19).
