Congrats to REPUBLIC SVP/Rock Formats DENNIS BLAIR, Sr. Director Rock & Alternative Promotion JOHN DIMAIO, and the rest of the team on LORDE "Royals" leaping from fourth to #1 this week on the MEDIABASE Alternative chart.
It's the first time in 17 years that a female solo artist has hit the top spot at Alternative. The last time it happened was TRACY BONHAM's "Mother Mother" in 1996.
