Fifty Shades of Grey: Remixed, a compilation of songs from the hit film's soundtrack, arrives at No. 3 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated May 23).

The predominantly downtempo electronic 10-track set sold 2,000 units in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. Cuts range from Robotaki's bleep-heavy version of Awolnation's cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire" to Oliver Kraus and Brian West's spooky mix of Sia's "Salted Wound" and Kaskade's party-ready reconstruction of Skylar Grey's "I Know You." The Weeknd is the only act with multiple tracks on the album: "Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)," as interpreted by Marian Hill, and "Where You Belong," remixed by Sohn. Plus, Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" receives a remix by Gazzo (as the single  rules the Dance/Mix Show Airplay char for a sixth week).

Album Review: The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Soundtrack Hits Hard Enough to Leave a Lasting Mark

'MORE' DEORRO: On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Deorro and Chris Brown enter the top 10 with "Five More Hours" (11-10). The new version of Deorro's original "Five Hours" (which peaked at No. 14 in September) swaps vocals from DyCy for those by Brown and is out via Ultra (instead of Le7els/PMRD).

"More" breaks into the top 10 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (11-8), boasting nearly 2 million U.S. streams (led by 59 percent from Spotify). It also gains by 18 percent to 8,000 sold.

'FOREVER' BEGINS: Staying with Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, the Hot Shot Debut belongs to Alesso with "If It Wasn't for You" (No. 35). The track is the fourth to chart from the Swedish DJ's forthcoming set Forever (due May 26).

Previously, Alesso hit No. 24 on the chart with "Tear the Roof Up" and No. 2 with "Heroes (We Could Be)," featuring Tove Lo. He concurrently lifts 15-14 with "Cool," featuring Roy English (and which ranks at No. 2 for a second week on Dance Club Songs).

"Wasn't" debuts at No. 37 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (with 3,000 sold), where it's his first song to chart without a featured act.

FLY, ROBIN S. COVER: Further down Hot Dance/Electronic Songs is another version of the oft-covered Robin S. classic "Show Me Love" (No. 42). This new tropical house version, by Dutch DJ Sam Feldt and featuring vocals from Kimberly Anne, sold 5,000 downloads, good for a No. 20 debut on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs. It was 22 years ago that the Robin S. original hit No. 1 on Dance Club Songs (May 8, 1993).

JONAS JUMPS TO No. 1 : On Dance Club Songs, Nick Jonas notches his second No. 1 with "Chains" (3-1). He first led the list with "Jealous" (Jan. 10). Remixes from Audien, Dan Farber and Mike Hawkins, among others, help "Chains" lock up the chart's top spot.
