Malaysian Band Paperplane Pursuit Beats Maroon 5 On Its 6th Week On The US Billboard Chart
Six weeks ago, homegrown band Paperplane Pursuit broke into the US Billboard Mainstream Top 40 Indicator Chart at #40 with their single 'Feel Good', joining the ranks of chart-topping artists like Taylor Swift, One Direction, Demi Lovato, and Ed Sheeran!
The Billboard Mainstream Top 40 Indicator Chart maps out the 40 most listened to songs in a particular week on US Billboard radio, meaning it does not include non-Billboard stations, non-USA stations, or web stations. In contrast with the National Airplay Chart, the Indicator chart is non-monitored, meaning that the radio stations are not listened to but made up of what the stations say they have played, usually upon mass request.
For the uninitiated, Paperplane Pursuit - made up of lead vocalist John O, drummer Andrew Yap, and guitarist Isaac Ravi - have been in the music scene since 2009. So far, the band has released 2 full-length albums - 2011's 'Malaysia 2.0' and 2014's 'Higher'
The latest chart rankings, updated on 7 October, saw them at the #30 spot - one step up from last week - placing them ahead of Adam Lambert, Maroon 5, and Little Mix
From their breakthrough into the charts, the band has steadily climbed to #30 the week before last, before dropping one spot to #31 last week.
Right now, these guys need all the help they can get to keep climbing up the charts, so here's how you can help:
Great job, Paperplane Pursuit! We're pretty sure your fans (and all of us, really) are super proud of you guys!
