"The line 'your laughter is the sweetest sound I've heard' was actually inspired by my cute little nephew," Curious tells Billboard.

DJ Scotty Boy, teaming with singer Lizzie Curious, bumps 2-1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart with "Shine Your Love" (2-1).

(The new Dance Club Songs chart is dated Jan. 3, marking a rare Wednesday-dated chart, instead of the usual Saturday, as Billboard is adjusting how it dates its charts and magazine issues.)

Remixed by Louis Lennon, Dirty Werk and Mister Grey, among others, "Shine" is the duo's first original production and second leader together, following its cover of Olive's 1997 top 10 "You're Not Alone" (June 17). "Shine" also serves as the third total leader for Scotty (real name: Scott Schroer), after he topped the chart in 2014 with "Shiny Disco Balls," featuring Sue Cho. ("Shine" is Lizzie's second No. 1.)

"We knew we wanted to follow with an original song which had a really positive message," Scotty tells Billboard. "I had the guitar chords in my head for days and, when I hit the studio, the rest of the track just flowed out like it was meant to be. Once I heard Lizzie's vocals, I just knew we had a hit.

"We are thrilled to have reached No. 1 and are so pleased that everyone loves the song as much as we do."

Says Lizzie, "I was so inspired to write something really uplifting after hearing the feel-good vibes of the track and that catchy trumpet riff. On this song, the vocals are about all kinds of love. For example, the line 'your laughter is the sweetest sound I've heard' was actually inspired by my cute little nephew, who does indeed have a wonderful laugh!"
