Doja Cat collects her first No. 1 on a Billboard dance chart, clawing 3-1 with "Say So" on the April 25-dated Dance/Mix Show Airplay survey.

The track, which has remixes from Jax Jones, Snakehips and Friend Within, among others, sports spins across the chart's panel, including on such core-dance affiliates as iHeartRadio's Pride Radio (as monitored on WFLZ-HD Tampa, Florida), KNHC (C89.5) Seattle and Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

(The Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart measures radio airplay on a select group of full-time dance stations, along with plays during mix shows on nearly 80 top 40-formatted reporters.)

"Say So" also marks Doja Cat's first top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 (8-5), a week after it became her first No. 1 on any radio ranking; it rules Rhythmic Songs for a second frame.

HIGHER 'LOVE': Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Lady Gaga surges into the top 10 with "Stupid Love" (12-8). She adds her 10th top 10, and first since "Applause" (No. 10, 2013).

"Stupid" is Gaga's highest-peaking track on the chart since "Born The Way," which led the list for a week in April 2011. The latter became Gaga's third leader, after "Bad Romance" (one week at No. 1, 2010) and "Poker Face" (15 weeks, 2009).

MAKING WAVES: On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, where SAINt JHN takes over at No. 1 with "Roses (Imanbek Remix)," two tracks reach the top 10.

Surf Mesa surges with "ily," featuring Emilee (11-7), marking the inaugural top 10 for both acts. The track also sails 14-5 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, up 70% to 3.9 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 16.

Plus, Alesso adds his third Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10 and Liam Payne picks up his first, as they bow at No. 8 with "Midnight." The track, released on a Wednesday (April 8) as opposed to the industry standard of Friday, debuted last week on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 21) from only two days of sales. Following its first full frame of tracking, "Midnight" motors to No. 2, selling 5,000.
