Plus, moves for DJ Snake, Alan Walker & more.

Sia snags her sixth No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated June 25), as "Cheap Thrills," featuring Sean Paul, rises 2-1. The track, which is nearing the Billboard Hot 100's top 10 after surging 19-13, is the first Dance Club Songs leader for Paul, as well as his first entry on the list (even though he's been appearing on Billboard charts since 2000). Remixes from Le Youth, Hex Cougar and John J-C Carr, among others, helped Sia and Paul sail to the summit.

Sia first hit Dance Club Songs eight years ago with "The Girl You Lost to Cocaine," which reached No. 8 in February 2008, becoming her first of eight top 10s. Her second top 10, David Guetta' "Titanium," featuring her vocals, peaked at No. 3 in 2012, with its 30 total weeks the second-most that any song has spent on the chart since it became a 50-position ranking (down from 80) in March 1985. Since then, only Icona Pop's "I Love It," featuring Charli XCX, has logged more chart weeks -- 32.

Here is an updated look at Sia's six Dance Club Songs No. 1s:

Title, Date Reached No. 1

"Wild One" (Jack Back feat. David Guetta, Nicky Romero & Sia), May 5, 2012
"She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)" (David Guetta feat. Sia), Nov. 24, 2012
"Chandelier," Aug. 16, 2014
"Elastic Heart," April 4, 2015
"Déjà vu" (Giorgio Moroder feat. Sia), Aug. 1, 2015
"Cheap Thrills" (Sia feat. Sean Paul), June 25, 2016

'TALK' TALK: DJ Snake soars onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 13 with "Talk," featuring George Maple. The track sold 5,000 downloads and drew 1.4 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music, as it also begins at No. 9 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs and No. 24 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs. "Talk" is the second single from the forthcoming first album, due later this year, from Snake (real name: William Grigahcine) and the follow-up to "Middle," featuring Bipolar Sunshine. That track spent eight weeks peaking at No. 3 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs (beginning March 26) and currently ranks at No. 5. The French DJ, teaming with Major Lazer and featuring MO, scored the No. 1 Hot Dance/Electronic Songs track of all of 2015 with "Lean On," which spent 23 weeks at the top.

Australian singer Maple marks his first Hot Dance/Electronic Songs appearance with "Talk." He previously charted two tracks on Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists, including "Talk Talk" (No. 11, Sept. 2014), from which the new "Talk" evolved.

'SLEEP,' WALKER: Norwegian producer Alan Walker sings his way onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, debuting at No. 26 with "Sing Me to Sleep." The follow-up to his first top 10, "Faded," which places at its No. 8 peak on the chart for an eighth week, starts with 5,000 sold (and debuts at No. 10 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs). "Sleep" also leads Emerging Artists for a second week.

Meanwhile, "Faded" continues to climb Dance/Mix Show Airplay (7-3) and Dance Club Songs (9-7), powered by a host of high-profile remixes, including from Tiesto, Dash Berlin and Kryder and Tom Staar.

HIGH 'REACH': Classixx collects its first top 10 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums with Faraway Reach (No. 5, 1,000 sold). The DJ duo of Michael David and Tyler Blake first charted three years ago with Hanging Gardens. Although that album peaked at No. 13 upon its June 1, 2013, debut, its first-week sales were double those of Reach.
