Adele Says 'Hello' to Dance Charts Thanks to New Remixes
Plus: David Guetta is back with a "Bang."
On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Adele arrives at No. 24 with the Billboard Hot 100's top title, "Hello." Originally a ballad, "Hello" has received dance remixes from, among others, Pink Panda, Dark Intensity and Paul Damixie, enabling its uptempo airplay.
Adele has enjoyed success with midtempo and slow songs on mix shows before, reaching No. 2 in June 2011 with "Rolling in the Deep," No. 5 with "Someone Like You" later that year and No. 3 with "Set Fire to the Rain" in early 2012.
Adele enjoys a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 while "Hello" notches a second week atop the Hot 100.
Also noteworthy on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, the Chainsmokers soar into the top 10 with "Roses," featuring Rozes (14-6). It's the third top 10 for the EDM duo, following "#Selfie" (No. 2, March 2014) and "Let You Go," featuring Great Good Fine OK (No. 10, August 2015).
The original "Bang," featuring Sia, peaked at No. 25 in December 2014 and was released from Guetta's album Listen, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums.
