The international hit single “Let Her Go” from Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has debuted at #37 on the Billboard Hot AC Chart, with an additional 23 Hot AC stations adding the single into rotation this week. The UK-troubadour, who will be featured as VH1’s “You Oughta Know” Artist throughout August, made his U.S. national TV debut two weeks ago on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, where he performed alongside Rickey Minor and the Tonight Show Band. He will make his national morning TV debut on Live! With Kelly And Michael on Thursday, August 1.
Now #1 in 16 countries, Platinum in the UK, Gold in Canada, and with over 2 million copies sold worldwide and nearly 70 million YouTube views, “Let Her Go” is beginning to take over North American airwaves. In the U.S., Hot AC adds are coming in weekly, including 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 and 99.9 Virgin (Toronto), 92.5 The Beat (Montreal), 102.7 The Peak (Vancouver) and the ROUGE FM network throughout Quebec.
Nearly all of Passenger’s 21 North American tour dates are sold out, with the remaining four cities on track to sell out by next week. 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." Last week, 104.3 MYfm caught up with Passenger while he busked in Los Angeles prior to his sold-out show at the El Rey.
