The Chainsmokers chug in at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated June 15) with World War Joy.

The four-track EP starts with 12,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, becoming the duo's fourth topper, following Collage (14 weeks at No. 1, beginning Nov. 26, 2016), Memories…Do Not Open (46 weeks, April 29, 2017) and Sick Boy (14 weeks, Oct. 6, 2018).

Meanwhile, Joy track "Call You Mine," with Bebe Rexha, bows at No. 3 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, the chart's highest debut this year. The Chainsmokers' 17th top 10 (only Calvin Harris, with 18, has more) and Rexha's fourth culled 8.3 million U.S. streams and sold 13,000 downloads in the tracking week.

The latter figure is also good for a No. 1 start on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, marking the duo's ninth leader and the singer's second. The Chainsmokers lead Nicki Minaj by two for the most No. 1s since the chart's January 2010 origin.

AVICII DEBUTS: Avicii opens at No. 2 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums with posthumous set Tim. Released on June 6 (the last day of the tracking week), the set arrives with 9,000 units; with 3,000 in traditional album sales, Tim begins at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Album Sales, marking Avicii's fourth leader.

P!NK'S "HOME" HITS No. 1: P!nk's "Walk Me Home" hits No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, aided by remixes from R3hab, Liam Pheifer and Until Dawn, among others. The track is her sixth No. 1, dating to her first, "Get the Party Started," in 2002.

ARMIN VAN HALEN: Van Halen leaps onto Dance Club Songs with "Jump 2019" (No. 47), thanks to a new Armin van Buuren remix. The original "Jump" is the band's only other entry on the chart, reaching No. 17 in 1984; the rock classic topped the Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks that year.
