'Can't Stop' Justin Timberlake, as 'Feeling' Flies to No. 1 on Dance Club Songs
JT scores his first leader on the list since 2008. Plus, moves for Calvin Harris, Sia & Metronomy.
Justin Timberlake jets to the top of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated July 23), as "Can't Stop the Feeling!" climbs 3-1. He earns his sixth No. 1 on the chart and first since 2008, when he was featured (with Timbaland) on Madonna's leader "4 Minutes"; he'd last reigned as a lead artist with "LoveStoned" in 2007.
Notably, Timberlake tops the chart without the aid of officially commissioned remixes. However, versions from Barry Harris, Fenix and Erick Decks, among many others, have helped bring "Feeling" to club crowds.
Calvin Harris earns top Airplay Gainer honors on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna (No. 2), which drew 107 million all-format radio audience impressions, up 7 percent, in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. It bullets at No. 5 on the all-format Radio Songs chart, while ruling Dance/Mix Show Airplay for a sixth week. The collab, up 5-4 on the Billboard Hot 100, also tops Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs for a third week (16.4 million U.S. streams, up 3 percent).
"This," revealed to have been co-written by Harris' now-ex Taylor Swift, became Rihanna's 25th No. 1 (second only to Madonna's 46), and Harris' fourth, on the July 9 Dance Club Songs chart. The track then became the first to lead Dance Club Songs for multiple weeks, also topping the July 16 tally, since Avicii's "Wake Me Up!" (also two weeks) in summer 2013.
Shifting to Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Sia sails to her fifth top 10, and first as a lead artist, with "Cheap Thrills," featuring Sean Paul (13-10). Of her four prior top 10s, she rose highest as featured on David Guetta's "Titanium" (No. 2, 2012). "Thrills" led the Dance Club Songs chart dated June 25.
Finally, on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Metronomy debuts at No. 8 with Summer 08 (1,000 copies sold). The U.K. group's other charted title, Love Letters, also entered (with 2,000 sold) and peaked at No. 8 in 2014.
