Nick Jonas Conquers Dance Club Songs Chart, Madonna Climbs
Nick Jonas jets to the top of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart with "Jealous" (2-1). The pop smash utilized remixes from Bent Collective, the Rooftop Boys and Ugo, among others, in its journey to the summit.
While it's Jonas' first No. 1 (and chart entry) as a solo act, "Jealous" marks his second trip to the top 10 overall: he reached No. 10 in 2009 as a member of the Jonas Brothers with "Paranoid."
On the Billboard Hot 100, "Jealous" ranks at No. 10 (after reaching No. 8) with a 40 percent gain in overall activity. Fueled by Christmas-week purchases, the track song sold 188,000 downloads in the week ending Dec. 28 (up 124 percent), according to Nielsen Music. It has scanned 1.1 million since its release.
New Material: Madonna motors forward on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with each of the three songs that she debuted last week. "Bitch I'm Madonna," featuring Nicki Minaj, lands one spot short of the top 10 (14-11), while first official single "Living for Love" also leaps three rungs (16-13). "Unapologetic Bitch" jumps four notches (26-22) and "Bitch I'm Madonna" scanned 17,000 units in its first full sales week, up 33 percent. (The tracks were rush-released on Dec. 19, so their first chart-tracking week was abbreviated). By contrast, the other two tracks posted modest sales gains: "Living" is up 4 percent to 11,000, while "Unapologetic" ups by 2 percent to 8,000.
