Meanwhile, “Hopes” leads Alternative Songs for a fifth week and Adult Pop Songs for a second week. The song is just the fourth to top those two airplay charts and Pop Songs simultaneously, dating to the March 1996 inception of Adult Pop Songs in Billboard’s pages in March 1996. (Pop Songs began in October 1992 and Alternative Songs, in September 1988.)

Senses Fail have announced that they’ll be changing up the lyrics of the songs when they re-record their debut EP.

Noël Wells has shared her new song “Star.”
