Marshmello and Bastille each notch their first No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, with “Happier” sitting at the top of the charts for 4-weeks straight at No. 1. Masked DJ Marshmello had previously hit a No. 2 high on Pop Songs with “Friends,” with Anne-Marie, in August. British alt band Bastille had hit a prior No. 3 high with its breakthrough single “Pompeii” in 2014.

The Pop Songs chart measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 167 mainstream top 40 stations. Pop Songs is the latest chart airplay that “Happier” has topped. It spends a fifth week at No. 1 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, while a week ago, it reached No. 1 on Alternative Songs.

“Happier” has also been climbing the Adult Pop Songs and Adult Alternative Songs charts.
