Plus, new top 10s for Steve Aoki & BTS, Diplo & Ellie Goulding and Feenixpawl.

Swedish singer Robyn rockets in at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Nov. 10) with Honey, earning 15,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. With 11,000 from traditional album sales, Robyn scores her second-best pure sales week, following the slightly higher opening sum of 2010's Body Talk, her last full-length before Honey.

The new set, which also tops Dance/Electronic Album Sales, is Robyn's third No. 1, and first leading LP, on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, following the EPs Do It Again and Love Is Free in 2014-15.

Four Honey tracks have hit Hot Dance/Electronic Songs: lead single "Missing U" (No. 18 in August), the title track (a re-entry at No. 26, a new peak) and, debuting this week, "Ever Again" (No. 31) and "Human Being" (featuring Zhala, No. 49).

Also on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Steve Aoki achieves his fifth top 10, and featured act BTS earns its first, with "Waste It on Me" (11-6). The track drew 5.8 million U.S. streams and sold 13,000 downloads in its first full tracking week (ending Nov. 1). Plus, Ellie Goulding and Diplo each notch a fifth top 10 on the chart, debuting at No. 10 with "Close to Me," featuring Swae Lee, who logs his first (4.2 million streams; 4,000 sold).

Plus, Australian DJ duo Feenixpawl flies 11-5 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "Neon Sky," featuring singer Mikayla, marking the first Billboard top 10 for both acts.
