Plus, David Guetta and Jason Derulo score No. 1 firsts.
Zedd zips onto Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated June 6) with his first No. 1, True Colors. The DJ's sophomore effort starts with 39,000 units, according to Nielsen Music. His first album, Clarity, topped out at No. 2 and has sold 208,000 to date. Colors also opens at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The last time a DJ debuted as high on the big chart was April 5, 2014, when Skrillex entered at the same rank with Recess (47,000 sold).
Zedd's first single from Colors, the Selena Gomez-sung "I Want You to Know," spent six weeks atop Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and holds this week at No. 5. Meanwhile, new single "Beautiful Now," featuring Jon Bellion, rockets 14 positions to No. 6, becoming Zedd's seventh top 10. That's the most of any act since the chart's Jan. 26, 2013 inception: David Guetta and Calvin Harris follow with six top 10s each. "Beautiful," which Zedd performed on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 21, gains by 186 percent to 36,000 downloads sold.
