The Black Keys “Fever” lengthens its lead at Number One on the Alternative Rock to 11 weeks. For the seven-day tracking period ending August 2, “Fever” accumulated 11.382 million impressions, which represents a loss of 179,000 for the week. Its lead over the format’s runner up song Big Data and Joywave’s “Dangerous” is 635,000, well within reach given the song gained 840,000 impressions (and the format’s fourth greatest gainer).

Just one notch further down this week’s Alternative Rock Chart, Vance Joy’s “Riptide” captures the formats greatest gainer, up an impressive 1.483 million impressions to 10.699. With this tracks outstanding growth, “Riptide” could jump both “Fever” and Dangerous next week. Either way, this week looks to be the last for “Fever” leading the Alternative Rock Chart.
