PASSENGER Lands At #1 On The Billboard Heatseekers Chart; N. American Tour Sold Out

After 35 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, internationally renowned songwriter Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has landed at #1!

With an additional 11 Hot AC stations adding “Let Her Go” into rotation this week, the hit single also jumps up the Billboard Hot AC Chart to enter Top 30. In the U.S., Hot AC adds are coming in weekly, and already include 104.3 MYFM (LA), Fresh 102.7 (NYC), Mix 104.1 (Boston), Alice 97.3 (San Francisco), Mix 96.5 (Houston) and various SiriusXM stations (The Pulse and 20 On 20). In Canada, the song has been added to AC & Hot AC stations 104.9 CHUMFM, 98.1 CHFI and 99.9 Virgin (Toronto), 92.5 The Beat (Montreal), 102.7 The Peak (Vancouver) and the ROUGE FM network throughout Quebec. This week, “Let Her Go” also makes it debut on the Hot 100 chart, sitting at #95.

The UK-troubadour, who is this month’s VH-1’s “You Oughta Know” Artist, made his U.S. national TV debut and morning TV debut on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Live! With Kelly And Michael, respectively.

Now #1 in 16 countries, “Let Her Go” is Platinum in the UK, Gold in Canada and over 2 million copies sold worldwide and 77 million YouTube views for the official music video.

With 30+ cities on his headlining summer tour, Passenger's North American tour is completely sold out with the exception on one remaining date on track to sell out shortly. Keeping true to his roots, Passenger has been busking in various cities around the country in addition to playing his proper live gigs. He tells USA Today in his “On The Verge” feature, “Everything I've built has been from the ground up, self-funded, and playing on the streets keeps me honest and connected."
