Plus, Rita Ora rules Dance Club Songs and chart action for Jonas Blue & Armin van Buuren.
Calvin Harris tops Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Sept. 9), as "Feels," featuring Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean, lifts 2-1. Harris earns his fourth No. 1, the second-most of all acts since the chart's January 2013 inception; The Chainsmokers lead with six No. 1s.
"Feels" is the second topper for Williams, again in a featured role; he first led as featured on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," for 13 weeks in 2013. Perry and Big Sean each their first No. 1 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.
Harris previously crowned the chart with "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna, for three weeks in 2016; "Blame," featuring John Newman (one week, 2014); and "Summer" (four weeks, 2014).
"Feels" felt the impact of 55 million in all-format airplay audience, 12.6 million U.S. streams and 25,000 downloads sold in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. The collab is also No. 1 for a fifth week on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales and at No. 2 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, following a three-week reign. "Feels" slips No. 5, from its No. 4 peak, on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, while climbing 20-16 on Dance Club Songs.
No. 1 CLUB 'SONG': Rita Ora rules Dance Club Songs for the first time in three years with "Your Song" (2-1), her fifth leader on the list. The track was remixed by Cheat Codes, Disciples and Sick Individuals, among others.
All five of Ora's chart entries have hit the top, starting with "How We Do (Party)" in July 2012. She followed in November 2012 with "R.I.P.," featuring Tinie Tempah, and added two more leaders in 2014: "I Will Never Let You Down" and "Black Widow" (by Iggy Azalea featuring Ora).
HEY 'MAMA': Jonas Blue barrels 15-6 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "Mama," featuring William Singe. It's the second top 10 for the U.K.-based DJ/producer and the first for singer Singe. "Mama" also becomes Blue's highest-peaking track on the chart, besting the No. 10 high that "Perfect Strangers," featuring JP Cooper, reached in October 2016. Blue first hit the chart in May 2016, driving to No. 14 with his trop-house cover of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," featuring Dakota. Earlier this year, Jonas Blue's "By Your Side," featuring Raye, reached No. 19.
"Mama" has now moved higher on Dance/Mix Show Airplay than on any other Billboard dance/electronic chart, although it has achieved top 10 status on three others, peaking at No. 9 on Dance Club Songs and No. 10 on both Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. "Mama" was remixed by Offaiah, Syn Cole and Pola & Bryson, among others.
VAN BUUREN BOWS: Armada label co-founder and trance king Armin van Buuren adds to his record for the most charted titles in the 16-year history of Dance/Electronic Album Sales with his 35th entry, A State of Trance: Ibiza 2017, a debut at No. 7. Tiesto trails with 20 entries. State is van Buuren's fifth album to chart in 2017, the most of all acts (Flume follows with four).
