Plus, moves for Toni Braxton, Anggun and CamelPhat & Elderbrook.

Australian producer Tom Budin and London-based vocalist Luciana lunge 2-1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Jan. 6) with "X With U." The first leader for Budin and seventh for Luciana was remixed by Supermini & Frankie Romano and Exodus & Shawn White, among others.

Luciana recently told Billboard, "I wrote 'X' after I'd heard a girl at a club say to her friend in the toilet that she should have spent the night with a guy she had met earlier; she should have gone with her instincts and just hung out with him so that they could've enjoyed each other. It's so much better to regret the things you have done rather than the things you didn't."

BRAXTON'S BACK IN TOP 10: Also in the Dance Club Songs top 10, Toni Braxton bounds 14-7 with "Coping." It's the veteran R&B singer's first top 10 since her fifth No. 1, "I Heart You," in June 2012. "Coping" (her first entry since "Heart") boasts remixes from the likes of StadiumX, Disco Killerz and Eden Prince.

Braxton earned her first two toppers in 1996: "You're Makin' Me High"/"Let It Flow" and "Un-Break My Heart," which, as it ruled for four weeks beginning Dec. 21, 1996, was on top 20 years ago this week. She led again with "I Don't Want To" (1997) and "Spanish Guitar" (2000).

ANGGUN RETURNS: Further on Dance Club Songs, Anggun appears on a Billboard chart for the first time in nearly 19 years, as "What We Remember" debuts at No. 50. Remixed by Ralphi Rosario, Dirty Disco, Love to Infinity and others, the track is the Indonesian star's first chart action since "Snow on the Sahara" reached No. 16 on the tally, and No. 22 on Adult Pop Songs, in 1998.

BUBBLING UP: On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, U.K. DJ duo CamelPhat (Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala), teaming with London-based Elderbrook (Alexander Kotz), earn their first top 10 each with "Cola" (12-10). Remixed by Franky Rizardo and Mousse T., "Cola" crowned the Nov. 11 Dance Club Songs chart.
