The duo dethrones Major Lazer & DJ Snake's "Lean On." Plus, Armin van Buuren extends a record on Top Dance/Electronic Albums.
Things are looking rosy for The Chainsmokers, as the pair collects its second No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Jan. 9) with "Roses" (2-1). Featuring vocals from Rozes (aka, Elizabeth Menzel), the DJ duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart dethrones Major Lazer and DJ Snake's "Lean On" (featuring MO), which led for 23 weeks (all consecutively, dating to Aug. 1). At least for now, "Lean" falls three weeks short of tying Avicii's "Wake Me Up!" for the most weeks at No. 1 (23) since the chart's January 2013 launch. The Chainsmokers become one of only five acts to have scored as many as two No. 1s in that time; they first led with "#SELFIE" for two weeks in spring 2014.
"Roses" reaps a hat trick of Hot Dance/Electronic Songs honors for the second straight week, earning top Airplay, Digital and Streaming Gainer status. The track racked 39 million all-format audience impressions (up 4 percent), sold 59,000 downloads (up 46 percent) and drew 5.7 million U.S. streams (up 6 percent) in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music.
