Sigala. and James Arthur's "Lasting Lover" lifts 2-1 on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Dec. 5).

On the multimetric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, Cannons shoot to their first top 10 with "Fire for You" (11-10). The song by the Los Angeles trio earned 691,000 U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week. It also bullets at its best ranks on Alternative Airplay (No. 6) and Adult Alternative Songs (No. 29).
