Ariana Grande attends the Billboard Women In Music 2018 on Dec. 6, 2018 in New York City. 

'Losing It' and 'Thank U, Next' make moves.

Australian producer and DJ Fisher (full name: Paul Fisher) scores his first No. 1 on a Billboard chart, as "Losing It" lifts 2-1 on the Dance Club Songs survey (dated Dec. 22). The song dethrones Lady Gaga and Bradley  Cooper's "Shallow," which ruled last week.

"Losing It" hits No. 1 in its 17th week on the chart. In the history of Dance Club Songs, only two titles have taken longer to lead: Juliet Roberts "Caught in the Middle" in July 1994 (19 weeks) and Tom Tom Club's "Wordy Rappinhood"/"Genius of Love" in January 1982 (18 weeks).

"Losing It" recently earned Fisher his first Grammy nomination, as the track is up for best dance recording at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, to be held in February. The song is competing against Above & Beyond's "Northern Soul," featuring Richard Bedford; Disclosure's "Ultimatum," featuring Fatoumata Diawara; Silk City and Dua Lipa's "Electricity" and Virtual Self's "Ghost Voices."

"Losing It" concurrently rises 25-22 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande earns her 11th top 10 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, as "Thank U, Next" vaults 22-10. At the same time, prior single "Breathin" bumps 10-8.

"Next" concurrently spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Breathin" ranks at No. 14 (after reaching No. 12 a week earlier).

Here is a recap of Grande's top 10s on Dance/Mix Show Airplay:

Title, Peak Position
"Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea, No. 2, 2014
"Break Free," featuring Zedd, No. 1 (3 weeks), 2014
"Bang Bang," with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj, No. 5, 2014
"Love Me Harder," with The Weeknd, No. 1 (3 weeks), 2015
"One Last Time," No. 4, 2015
"Into You," No. 9, 2016
"Side to Side," featuring Nicki Minaj, No. 3, 2016
"No Tears Left to Cry," No. 3, 2018
"God Is a Woman," No. 6, 2018
"Breathin," No. 8, 2018
"Thank U, Next," No. 10, 2018

After notching her first three Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10s in 2014, Grande sets a new best by earning her fourth top 10 of 2018. She ties Marshmello and Post Malone for the most top 10s on the chart this year.
