The lead single from Gaga's "ARTPOP" lands at the top spot.
Lady Gaga zooms from No. 16-1 on Dance/Electronic Songs with “Applause,” riding enormous gains all around.
Her 15-spot leap is the most in the eight month history of the Dance/Electronic Songs chart, beating the 12-1 jump of Baauer¹s “Harlem Shake.” Only “Shake” and “Gentleman” by PSY reached No. 1 in two weeks or less.
The song takes home the Greatest Gainer/Airplay award and enters at No. 4 on Dance Streaming Songs, collecting 79% of its 2.9 million streams from YouTube. Sales of 218,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, are enough to spur a No. 1 debut on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, her fourth No. 1 and ninth top 10 on that tally.
