Plus, moves for Major Lazer, J Balvin, The Chainsmokers & Illenium.

P!nk prances to her seventh No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Sept. 28) with "Can We Pretend," featuring Cash Cash, which earns its first.

The song, remixed by Sigala, MOTi and Bart B More, among others, is P!nk's second leader in 2019, after "Walk Me Home" in June, and her fifth in a row dating to "What About Us" in October 2017. Dating to the reign of "What," only Ariana Grande has earned more No. 1s, with six. "Pretend" previously became P!nk's 19th chart entry and 11th top 10.

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Major Lazer leaps 27-9 with "Que Calor," featuring J Balvin and El Alfa. Lazer's ninth top 10, Balvin's second and El Alfa's first earned 4 million U.S. streams and sold 4,000 downloads in its first full tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. The collaboration soars on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (20-2), while vaulting 19-1 on Latin Digital Song Sales and launching at No. 13 on Hot Latin Songs (which, like Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, blends streaming, airplay and sales data).

Plus, The Chainsmokers score their 10th Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10 with "Takeaway" (14-8). It's also the first top 10 each for co-lead act Illenium and featured singer Lennon Stella. The track reached No  3 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs in August.
