Marshmello and Bastille bump 2-1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Sept. 29) with "Happier." The coronation halts Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey's record 33-week reign with "The Middle."

"Happier" rules with 26 million in all-format radio audience (up 21 percent), 13.8 million U.S. streams (up 20 percent) and 12,000 downloads sold (up 17 percent), according to Nielsen Music.

Marshmello earns his third No. 1 on the chart and alt band Bastille banks its first. Only three acts have earned more No. 1s on the chart (which launched in 2013) than Marshmello: The Chainsmokers (six), Calvin Harris and Zedd (four each). Previously, Marshmello reigned with his Selena Gomez collab "Wolves" (11 weeks, November 2017-February 2018) and "Silence," featuring Khalid (one week, December 2017).

Additionally, "Happier" extends its No. 1 runs to four weeks on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales and three weeks on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs. It also pushes 10-7 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay and 42-28 on Dance Club Songs.

Speaking of Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Martin Garrix sails 19-8 with "Ocean," featuring Khalid. Boosted by plays of a David Guetta remix on SiriusXM's BPM channel, "Ocean" is Garrix's sixth top 10 and Khalid's fourth.
