Michael Franti & Spearhead Return to No. 1 on Adult Alternative Songs With ‘I Got You’

Michael Franti & Spearhead top Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart for the first time in a decade, as “I Got You” rises 2-1 on the list dated Sept. 12.

The roots rock band scores its second leader on the chart, after “The Sound of Sunshine” ruled for eight weeks beginning in July 2010.

In between its two No. 1s, the group tallied five entries, earning a pair of No. 5 hits with “Hey Hey Hey” in 2010 and “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” in 2013.

The group ends the second-longest stretch between No. 1s in the Adult Alternative Songs chart’s 24-year history: a week short of 10 years. It narrowly passed Ryan Adams, who waited two weeks shy of 10 years between “New York, New York” in 2001 and “Lucky Now” in 2011. The record belongs to The Killers, who went 10 years and four months between between “Read My Mind” in 2007 and “The Man” in 2017.

“I Got You” is the lead single from Franti & Spearhead’s LP Work Hard & Be Nice, which debuted at No. 8 on the Americana/Folk Albums chart in July.
