Krewella returns to Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Timberlake hits the Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10 & Francis & Kygo are Club kings.

Krewella clocks in at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated June 11) with its third entry, EP Ammunition. The set sold 3,000 copies in its debut week, according to Nielsen Music. The set is the electro-dubstep act's first non-single release since downsizing to a duo of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf. Previously, Krewella topped the chart with Get Wet in October 2013; it had hit No. 6 with EP Play Hard in April that year.

The lead single from Ammunition, "Beggars" (credited to Krewella x Diskord), has reached No. 24 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs and No. 33 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.

SWEET: Also on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, South African act Die Antwoord returns at No. 7 with Suck on This: Pre-Candy Mixtape (1,000 sold). It's the act's fourth top 10 and serves as the follow-up to its only No. 1 so far, 2014's Donker Mag.

CASHING IN: Galantis grabs its second top 10 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "No Money" (12-10). The Swedish duo hit No. 9 with "Runaway (U & I)" last August. Galantis' latest galvanizes top Streaming Gainer honors with 3.5 million U.S. streams, up 26 percent (as the song lifts 14-11 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs). "Money" also reaches the top 10 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (18-10), up by 49 percent to 5,000 sold. The track, which was remixed by Dillon Francis, MOTi and others, concurrently debuts at No. 35 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay.

'STOP' GOES TOP 10: Justin Timberlake tallies his ninth Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10 with "Can't Stop the Feeling!" (11-10). The superstar last ranked in the region three years ago with the No. 7-peaking "Suit & Tie," featuring Jay Z. Timberlake has notched four No. 1s on the tally, the last via his feature on Madonna's "4 Minutes" (also featuring Timbaland) nearly eight years ago, on the chart dated June 7, 2008.

'OVER' AND ABOVE: Lastly, Dillon Francis and Kygo collect their first No. 1 each on Dance Club Songs with "Coming Over" (2-1). It's also the first leader for featured vocalist James Hersey. Although it was originally released last August on Francis' EP This Mixtape Is Fire (which debuted at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums), remixes from Tiesto, Tommy Trash and Roy Greco, among others, arrived this year.

Francis rules Dance Club Songs after one prior appearance, his DJ Snake collaboration "Get Low," which spent a week at the chart's No. 50 anchor position (April 19, 2014). Kygo and Hersey reign in their first trips to the chart (although Kygo has logged 13 entries on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart).
