Debut No. 28 "Every Breaking Wave" U2
U2 visits the Adult Contemporary chart's top 30 for the first time in nearly 23 years, as "Every Breaking Wave" crashes the list at No. 28. Aided by airplay at iHeartMedia-owned stations, the ballad marks the band's fourth appearance in the region. U2's Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" reached Nos. 23 and 16, respectively, in 1987 and "One" rose to No. 24 in 1992.
