Steve Aoki seizes his second No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Nov. 24) with Neon Future III. The set starts with 6,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 15, according to Nielsen Music. With 1,000 from traditional album sales, Neon also arrives at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Album Sales.

Neon Future.I became Aoki's first Top Dance/Electronic Albums No. 1 in October 2014. Neon Future.II followed, hitting No. 2 in May 2015. III is Aoki's sixth Top Dance/Electronic Albums top 10, dating to his first, Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles (No. 8, February 2008).

Lead III single "Waste It on Me," featuring BTS, holds at No. 11 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, after reaching No. 6. Plus, Aoki's blink-182-featuring track "Why Are We So Broken" bows at No. 36. That song, the rock act's first on any Billboard dance chart, collected 521,000 U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week.

BLUE DEBUTS: Additionally on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Jonas Blue bolts in at No. 6 with Blue (4,000 units). Although this is his debut full-length, Jonas Blue reached No. 4 in September 2017 with a DJ-mixed compilation, Jonas Blue: Electronic Nature: The Mix 2017.

Blue track "Polaroid," with Liam Payne and Lennon Stella, rises 26-25 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs (following its No. 20 peak upon its Oct. 20 debut) and 23-17 Dance Club Songs. The track sports remixes from CID and Jonas, Hugel and Nolan van Lith, among others.

LIPA'S LATEST LEADER: Silk City (the duo of Diplo and Mark Ronson) and Dua Lipa light up the top spot on Dance Club Songs with "Electricity" (2-1). The first No. 1  for the DJ team and sixth for singer Lipa was remixed by Pink Panda, Dirty Disco and MK, among others.

The track is Lipa's third leader of 2018, the most of all acts this year. She previously led in 2018 with "One Kiss" (with Calvin Harris, June 2) and "IDGAF" (April 28). Jonas Blue, Sabrina Carpenter, Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, Tony Moran, Diana Ross and VASSY have all scored two leaders apiece in 2018.

"Electricity" also ignites on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, climbing into the top five for the first time (6-5), boasting 3.6 million domestic streams and sold 3,000 downloads.

A NEW 'HIGH': Panic! at the Disco dashes 18-8 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "High Hopes," marking the act's first top 10 on the chart. "High" claims its second frame at No. 1 on the Alternative Songs airplay tally and becomes Panic's first top 10 since 2006 on the Billboard Hot 100.
