Garrix Zooms; Icona Pop, Avicii and Kaskade Climb the Dance Chart

Martin Garrix

Martin Garrix zooms ten spots, the largest positional jump on the Dance/Electronic Songs chart, with festival banger “Animals” (32-22). Taking 66% of its points from sales, the song is also seen vaulting 38-17 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (9,000 units, up 86%).

Icona Pop’s “All Night,” boasting debut-week sales of 31,000 units according to Nielsen SoundScan, glides in at No. 6 on No. 13 on Dance/Electronic Songs and No. 6 Dance/Electronic Digital Songs. The act’s “I Love It,” meanwhile, continues to reside in the top five of both charts.

Avicii is up a notch on Dance/Electronic Songs (6-5) with “Wake Me Up!,” the Greatest Gainer for both Digital (53,000 units, up 15%) and Streaming (1.5 million streams, 54% coming from Spotify). The track should make further strides this week as the song’s official video hit Vevo on July 29, the day after the streaming tracking period ended this week.

Kaskade claims his 12th top 10 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay as “Atmosphere” rises 11-9.  Since the chart launched 10 years ago this month, only three acts have had more top 10s: Rihanna (19), David Guetta (18) and Britney Spears (14). No featured vocalist is listed because, for the first time in his career, Kaskade is the one singing.  “Atmosphere,” also the title track of Kaskade’s new album (Sept. 10), features remixes by AMTRAC, Chocolate Puma and GTA.

Cher captures her eighth No. 1 on Dance Club Songs as “Woman’s World” jumps 2-1.  The song previews “Closer To The Truth,” her first original studio album since “Living Proof” in 2002.  Produced and co-written by Paul Oakenfold, the track has been remixed by R3hab, Danny Verde, Tracy Young and David Morales, among others. Reaching the pinnacle in a scant five weeks, the ascent matches Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” for the quickest climb to the top this year.  “Woman’s World” has been the Greatest Gainer each week since its debut in the July 13 issue.

Enrique Iglesias previews his upcoming studio album with “Turn The Night Up,” released digitally on July 30, and already on Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 17 thanks to immediate airplay.  Produced by The Cataracs and remixed by Laidback Luke and Ralphi Rosario, the song makes an initial impact on the Pop Song radio chart as the top debut and greatest gainer at No. 30. Iglesias’ new mobile app, Enrique Freak Out, uses enLink Media technology to allow fans to insert their own photos into the song’s video and then share it with interested parties.
