'I Feel Love' is Smith's third leader.

Sam Smith rises 3-1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Jan. 25) with "I Feel Love."

Smith scores their third leader, following "Promises" (with Calvin Harris, in October 2018) and "Omen" (by Disclosure featuring Smith; October 2015).

"Love" is a faithful cover of Donna Summer's 1977 classic, which peaked at No. 3 that August. Summer also sent a newer mix of the song to No. 9 in October 1995.

"Love" has also hit the chart by other acts, including Messiah (No. 15, 1995), Vanessa-Mae (No. 19, 1998) and even Blue Man Group featuring Venus Hum (No. 7, November 2003).

Smith's version was remixed by DJ Strobe and Sebastian Manuel, among others.
