“Stressed Out,” the blockbuster single from Fueled By Ramen recording group Twenty One Pilots, has ascended to #1 at Mediabase Top 40 and Hot AC radio outlets nationwide – the band’s first time topping the formats. “Stressed Out” has also exploded into the #2 position on Billboard’s “Hot 100” having recently reached #1 on both the “Alternative Songs” and “Hot Rock Songs” tallies.
The biggest single yet from Twenty One Pilots’ remarkable RIAA platinum certified second album, “BLURRYFACE,” “Stressed Out” has been certified 2X Multi-Platinum by the RIAA, earning more than 100 million streams thus far while its companion video – directed by the band’s longtime collaborator Reel Bear Media (“Fairly Local,” “Lane Boy,” “Car Radio,” “Guns For Hands”) – has scored over 101 million views and counting at Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel.
“Ride,” the most recent single from the worldwide smash “BLURRYFACE,” is rapidly shaping up as another chart sensation. The track is now a top 10 favorite on Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” and “Alternative Songs” charts, with its companion video – again directed by Reel Bear Media – currently at 22 million views via Twenty One Pilots’ own YouTube channel.
