The Chainsmokers notch their third top 10 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Feb. 27), as "Don't Let Me Down," featuring Daya, debuts at No. 7. The track sold 20,000 downloads and drew 2.6 million U.S. streams in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. The single also starts at No. 2 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs and No. 10 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs. "Don't" marks the first appearance on the three charts for teen vocalist Daya, although her pop breakthrough, "Hide Away," rises 23-20 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay.

"Don't" also becomes The Chainsmokers' third Billboard Hot 100 hit, debuting at No. 85, following "#Selfie," which reached No. 16 in 2014, and "Roses," featuring Rozes, now at No. 9 after hitting No. 6.

Speaking of "Roses," the hit leads Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for an eighth week. "Roses" also remains No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (13 weeks on top), Dance/Mix Show Airplay (six) and Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (five). On Dance Club Songs, "Roses" rises 16-12.

'OPUS' OPENS: On Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Eric Prydz prances in at No. 1 with Opus (4,000 sold). It's the first topper and second appearance for the Swedish DJ, who hit No. 14 in June 2012 with Eric Prydz Presents Pryda. Prydz also re-enters Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (No. 24; 3,000, up 157 percent) and debuts on Dance/Mix Show Airplay (No. 36) with "Breathe," featuring Rob Swire.

Opus also includes previous Dance Club Songs hits "Every Day" (No. 3, 2013) and "Generate" (No. 8, 2015), in addition to Dance/Mix Show Airplay entry "Liberate," (No. 14, 2014).

ODESZA HITS TOP 10: On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Odesza, the duo of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, scores its first top 10 with "Say My Name," featuring Zyra (12-9). The track hit No. 16 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs a year ago this month.

'OVER' AND ABOVE: Nathan Sykes scores his second Dance Club Songs No. 1 as a soloist with "Over and Over Again," featuring Ariana Grande, who earns her first leader (2-1). Sykes, a member of British boy band The Wanted, first led the list in August 2015 with "Kiss Me Quick." The Wanted, currently on hiatus, hit No. 1 twice, with "Chasing the Sun" (July 2012) and "I Found You" (January 2013). Grande previously rose as high as No. 3, with "Break Free," featuring Zedd, in October 2014.

Remixes from Jump Smokers, Elephante and Cahill, among others, helped send Sykes and Grande's collab to the summit.

END ZONE: Finally, following the band's Super Bowl halftime show performance Feb. 7, Coldplay rockets 13-3 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs with "A Sky Full of Stars." Sales increase 236 percent to 17,000, allowing the track to equal its No. 3 peak first reached in October 2014. The song, co-written and produced with Avicii, also soars 20-13 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, up 54 percent to 2.2 million U.S. streams.
