Billboard Chart Moves: The Pretty Reckless Rules Mainstream Rock with "Heaven Knows"!

-- The Pretty Reckless: A rare format hit with female vocals tops the Mainstream Rock radio airplay chart, as the Pretty Reckless' "Heaven Knows" ascends 2-1.
With the track sung by the band's Taylor Momsen (first known for her acting on the CW's "Gossip Girl"), a female vocalist croons the chart's top title for just the second time in 24 years; Halestorm, fronted by Lizzy Hale, reigned for two weeks last April with "Freak Like Me."
Prior to the leaders, no female had sung a Mainstream Rock No. 1 since Alannah Myles' "Black Velvet" ruled for two weeks in February/March 1990 (three years before Momsen was born).
