Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has stormed the charts with “Somewhere On A Beach,” the lead single from his forthcoming studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville), out May 27. It cruises to the No. One spot on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts this week and shows no signs of slowing down. The infectious track has also earned GOLD status by the RIAA ahead of the album’s release and spends its second week atop the Canadian radio charts. The fastest rising single of Bentley’s career, “Somewhere On A Beach” continues to resonate with fans for the fourth week on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
“‘Somewhere On A Beach’ is setting up our summer just like we wanted and putting fans in the mood to party out on the tour,” shares Bentley. “It’s hard to believe your 14th No. one hit could be your fastest rising. I’m blown away at the reception of the new music, and I can’t wait to start peeling back more layers of the album with the other songs.”
Up one place, Bentley’s “Somewhere On A Beach” takes #1 on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart. It seizes the throne from Chris Young & Cassadee Pope’s “Think Of You,” which slips to #2 after a single week on top. Not simply the week’s leader in chart points, “Beach” also ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s most played and most heard song.
Just below the aforementioned “Think Of You” is Old Dominion’s “Snapback,” which holds at #3. Dustin Lynch’s “Mind Reader” repeats at #4, while Blake Shelton’s “Came Here To Forget” rises one place to #5.
