DJ Snake scores his second No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, as Carte Blanche jumps 4-1 on the Aug. 10-dated survey.

The set, which debuted thanks to  just its first day of availability (July 24), earned 13,000 equivalent album units in its first full tracking frame (July 25-Aug. 1), according to Nielsen Music.

Blanche follows Snake's debut, Encore, which logged two weeks at No. 1 in August-September 2016.

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, six Blanche songs bow (bringing its total to nine charted entries), led by "Smile," featuring Bryson Tiller (No. 31). "Taki Taki," featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna and Cardi B (and included on the new set), started at its No. 2 peak last October and ranks at No. 5 this week, having spent its first 44 frames in the top 10.

The new album also contains collabs with, among others, Zomboy, ZHU, Sean Paul and Anitta.

CHAINSMOKERS TIE RECORD: The Chainsmokers and Illenium leap 20-3 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Takeaway," featuring Lennon Stella, after its first full tracking week. The Chainsmokers tally their 18th top 10, tying Calvin Harris for the most since the chart's January 2013 inception.

Illenium's second Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10 and Stella's first, "Takeaway" surges with 16,000 downloads sold and vaults 5-1 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, becoming The Chainsmokers' record-extending 10th No. 1 (and the first each for Illenium and Stella).

With 6.8 million U.S. streams, the track begins at No. 4 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs.

FISHER RIDES WAVE TO NO. 1: Australian surfer-turned-DJ FISHER ascends 2-1 on Dance Club Songs, with "You Little Beauty." His second leader, after "Losing It" (Dec. 22, 2018), hits the top without the aid of official remixes. "Beauty," however, boasts instant familiarity to club audiences, utilizing vocals from Cevin Fisher's (no relation to FISHER) 1999 No. 1, "(You Got Me) Burnin' Up" (which sports vocals from Loleatta Holloway).

MADEON'S FIRST TOP 10: Moving to Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Madeon bounds 23-10 with "All My Friends," his first top 10. The track eclipses the performances of his other two chart hits, "The City" (No. 14, 2013) and "You're On" (No. 39, 2015).
