DJ Snake's 'Let Me Love You' Remix With R. Kelly Hits Dance Charts
The new version joins the original featuring Justin Bieber. Plus, Dua Lipa leaps to her first Dance Club Songs leader.
The new "Love" swaps Bieber's vocals for Kelly's and contains different lyrics (so, although sonically similar to the original, it's treated as a separate entry). The first title on the chart for R&B star Kelly bows with 25,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music, also good for top 10 arrivals on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 5) and R&B Digital Song Sales (No. 9).
Concurrently, Snake's first "Love," featuring Bieber, earns top Digital Gainer honors on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs (at its No. 2 peak for a whopping 12th week), up 154 percent to 103,000 (with sales for most songs up noticeably in the week ending Dec. 29, due to holiday shopping). The track also returns to the top of Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (2-1).
Meanwhile, Snake's album Encore jumps 15-6 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums (1,000 copies sold, up 43 percent), achieving its best chart position in four months.
STATE OF 'MIND': On Dance Club Songs, Dua Lipa lifts 2-1 with "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)," reigning in her first appearance on the chart. The track, which topped the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists list dated Oct. 1, sports remixes from Night Moves, Alex Metric and Black Saint, among others. The song remains in the Pop Songs chart's top 25 and has received notable mix show plays at the format's WBBM Chicago and WDZH Detroit.
