Alt18 Countdown on Sirius XM, 7/24/21: Twenty One Pilots holds at No. 1; Olivia Rodrigo jumps

Milky Chance

Another week at No. 1 for Twenty One Pilots and their disco jam “Saturday” on the Alt18 Countdown. Glass Animals holds at No. 2 with “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.”

I missed the last two weeks traveling, so not sure who is new or who jumped around the countdown, but Olivia Rodrigo is up to No. 5 with “brutal,” while WILLOW and Travis Barker have a bop with the SEO-unfriendly “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l.” SEB also has something going with “seaside_demo,” which has 38.6 million plays on Spotify, to date. He can’t thank TikTok and Harry Styles for the boost.

I didn’t catch the name of the new SEB track at No. 17. If you know it, email me here.

Keeping things short this week with the new countdown less than 24 hours away. I’ll swing back and report on the 7/17/21 countdown so we have a full record for the year.

Playlist links below. I’m back and active on the Discord here.

Sorry again for being away. I meant to keep things updated, but it was just too nice out in the woods. Back at it now.

Update: I have a new Spotify playlist called “AltCharts” featuring alternative music from popular charts. You can follow it here.
