Paul McCartney’s new solo album “Egypt Station” hasn’t dropped yet, but it’s already scoring him some new milestones. For the first time in two decades, the music legend has earned himself a top 10 spot on the Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart.
McCartney’s single “Come On To Me,” released back in June, currently ranks at six on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs airplay chart. It marks his first solo airplay top 10 since 1997, when his “Flaming Pie” track “The World Tonight” peaked in the ninth spot on the same chart. Hear the track to the right.
It may be his first solo Adult Alternative airplay top 10 ranking, but it’s certainly not his first high-ranking airplay spot in recent years when it comes to collaborations. McCartney’s feature on the 2015 hit by Rihanna and Kanye West “FourFiveSeconds” ranked sixth on the Pop Songs and Rhythmic songs charts after its release. The music legend also saw the top 10 on multiple R&B/hip-hop airplay charts for West’s “All Day” that same year.
