Plus, moves for Sting, DJ Regard, Kygo, Whitney Houston, Shawn Mendes, Cheat Codes & Daniel Blume.

Gorgon City and Kaskade cruise 2-1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Aug. 17) with "Go Slow," featuring Romeo. It's the second No. 1 for both lead acts and the first for vocalist Romeo. "Slow" ascended to the top solely on the strength of the original mixes.

Previously, Gorgon City (the UK-based duo of Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott) topped the chart with "Go All Night," featuring Jennifer Hudson (January 2015), while Kaskade conquered with "Everything" (May 2005).

Additionally on Dance Club Songs, Sting soars to his eighth top 10 with "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free 2019" (14-9). The new version, one of six songs produced by Dave Aude for Sting's My Songs set, was remixed by Tom Stephan, among others. With the move, the "2019" version eclipses the peak of Sting's original, which hit No. 10 in September 1985.  

"When Sting asked me to produce some songs for My Songs, I asked if I could also work on 'If You Love Somebody Set Them Free,' as it's one of my all-time favorite Sting songs," Aude tells Billboard. "It's the only one that I totally flipped on its head, and the result is pure dance floor magic. I'm beyond proud."

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, DJ Regard drives 21-13 with "Ride It." With 3 million U.S. streams (up 23%) and 1,000 downloads sold (up 24%) in the tracking week ending Aug. 8, "Ride" earns top Streaming and Sales Gainer honors. The Ferizaj, Kosovo-based Regard also realizes his first-ever appearance on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart (No. 23).

Heading to Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Kygo and Whitney Houston lift 11-6 with "Higher Love." Kygo's fourth top 10 is Houston's first, more than seven years after her passing. It's her second total appearance, after "Try It On My Own" reached No. 36 on Aug. 16, 2003, the week of the chart's inception. The original "Higher," by Steve Winwood, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a week in August 1986.

Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, two other tracks secure top 10 status: Shawn Mendes snags his second such hit with "If I Can't Have You" (13-9), while Cheat Codes also collect their second top 10, and Daniel Blume earns his first, with "Who's Got Your Love" (12-10).
