"'Love Tonight' is a simple song by a little Melbourne band made by friends, for friends about love, connectedness and solidarity," Shouse says.

Swedish House Mafia lifts into the top 10 of Billboard's multimetric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Aug. 7) as "Lifetime," featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake, shoots from No. 31 to No. 9. It's Swedish House Mafia's second top 10, after "Don't You Worry Child," featuring John Martin (No. 2, 2013). "Lifetime" is the first top 10 for each featured act.

The July 19-released track, which debuted a week earlier from four days of data, surges following its first full week of availability. "Lifetime" landed 1.9 million U.S. streams and 1.5 million radio airplay audience impressions and sold 500 downloads in the week ending July 29, according to MRC Data. Concurrently, the track bows on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 19) and Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (No. 20) charts.

"Lifetime" is the second new offering from the recently reunited Swedish House Mafia. "It Gets Better" started a week ago at No. 13 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.

Additionally on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, Farruko's "Pepas" flies 6-2 following the July 27 release of a new version with Lil Jon. With 5.4 million domestic streams, up 68%, "Pepas" also parades 9-1 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, becoming Farruko's first leader. Plus, "Pepas" pounces 14-3 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, selling 1,700 downloads, up 126%.

Farruko also scores on Billboard's Latin charts, including the airplay-, sales- and streaming-blended Hot Latin Songs list, securing his 11th top 10 as "Pepas" jumps 13-6 in its fourth frame. The track pushes Farruko to his fourth No. 1 on Latin Digital Songs (5-1) and ninth top 10 on Latin Streaming Songs (18-5) and surges 35-13 in its second week on Latin Airplay, with 5.8 million audience impressions, up 53%, in the week ending Aug. 1.

On the Billboard Hot 100, Farruko adds his sixth career entry, as "Pepas" arrives at No. 81.

Shifting to the Dance/Mix Show Airplay list, Shouse, the Melbourne, Australia-based duo of Ed Service and Jack Madin, surges to its inaugural leader with "Love Tonight" (4-1). The 2017 original, remixed in 2021 by David Guetta, is earning core-dance airplay at the likes of leaders SiriusXM's BPM, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel. (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.)

"'Love Tonight' is a simple song by a little Melbourne band made by friends, for friends about love, connectedness and solidarity," Shouse tells Billboard. "The fact that the song has connected so strongly with the global community during a time of crisis and to hear these voices soar across the world is a beautiful and special thing. With the incredible support across U.S. dance radio, we feel the love and we hope this song can continue to help people re-embrace one another in joy."
