Lenny Kravitz Goes Highest With First Dance Chart No. 1 'Low,' Calls It 'An Honor'
"No. 1 on the Dance Club songs chart is an honor, especially because it is outside my typical genre," Kravitz says.
Lenny Kravitz collects his first No. 1 on any Billboard dance chart, as he lifts 2-1 on the Nov. 10-dated Dance Club Songs survey with "Low" (2-1). The track was remixed by David Guetta, Tom Stephan and Junior Black, among others.
Kravitz tells Billboard, "Having the No. 1 position on the Dance Club songs chart is an honor, especially because it is outside my typical genre. I've also known David Guetta before he came to fame, so the fact that he helped bring all of these mixes to No. 1 brings it full circle."
"Low" isn't the first No. 1 song to which Kravitz has had his name attached on Dance Club Songs. He drew credits as a producer and writer on Madonna's "Justify My Love," which reigned for two weeks in January 1991.
As an artist, Kravitz owns three other Dance Club Songs entries: "Black Velveteen" (No. 6, 2001), "Stillness of Heart" (No. 13, 2002) and "Superlove" (No. 2, 2013).
The rocker has topped several other Billboard charts in his lengthy career, including Mainstream Rock Songs twice, with "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" (in 1993, for two weeks) and "Fly Away" (1998, three). His breakthrough pop hit "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over" ascended to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1991.
