The 1975’s ‘being Funny in a Foreign Language’ is This Week’s Most Popular New Song, According to Fans!
This week’s most popular album is the newest release from 1975, Being Funny in a Foreign Language.
The British pop-rock band’s fifth studio album was selected as the best new album of the week in a Billboard poll published on Friday (Oct. 14).
Blink-182 (“Edging”), Lil Baby (“It’s Only Me”), Nessa Barrett (“Young Forever”), and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (“Return of the Dream Canteen”) all lost to Being Funny in a Foreign Language.
All I Need to Hear, “Happiness,” “Part of the Band,” and “I’m in Love With You” are among the album’s previously released singles created by Jack Antonoff. The album is more of the same for diehard fans of the band, with the same shimmering, alternative-tinged pop music.
The 1975’s best-known single, “Oh Caroline,” features synths reminiscent of the 1980s and collective efforts from all five members that harken back to their first album and their second album, respectively titled The 1975 and I Like It When You Sleep.
With over 18% of the vote, Blink-182’s new song “Edging” came in second in the fan-voted poll, behind Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Tom DeLonge (vocals/guitar), Mark Hoppus (bass/vocals), and Travis Barker (drums) of pop-punk trio Blink recently announced their reunion for a new album and world tour.
Lil Baby’s latest album, It’s Only Me, came in second, with 11.5% of the vote, followed by the “other” category, which received 12.3%.
