“Make Me Want To” rose from 3rd position to the top spot on the Country Airplay chart dated March 7 after gaining by 12% to 33.2 million audience impressions in the week ending March 1, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“I’m super-thankful to radio, my management team, band, label and booking agency for their hard work and never giving up on this song,” Allen told Billboard. “And to my co-writers, Paul Sikes and Jennifer Denmark: You are special talents with great hearts.”
The song topped the chart in its 58th week on the survey, completing the longest journey to No. 1 in the history of the chart, which launched in January 1990.
