Zedd 'Stay's Hot On Dance Charts
Zedd zooms into the top five on Dance/Electronic Songs (7-4), sporting Airplay and Digital Gainers honors for "Stay the Night," featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore. The song rises on Dance/Mix Show Airplay (4-3) and bullets on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (5-5) with its second-best sales week (31,000, up 21%, according to Nielsen SoundScan), ahead of just-released remixes from Tiesto, Nicky Romero and DJ Snake, among others.
"Stay" also moves up Dance Streaming Songs (12-10; 1.1 million U.S. streams, including 44% from Vevo and 33% from Spotify, up 16%, according to Nielsen BDS), accelerates into the top 10 on Dance Club Songs (11-6) and steps up the Billboard Hot 100 (58-51).
'ANIMALS' KINGDOM: Martin Garrix captures the Streaming Gainer on Dance/Electronic Songs (9-8) and improves on Dance Streaming Songs (9-6, up 29%) thanks to a flurry of user-generated clips of "Animals"; 77% of its 1.5 million streams are from YouTube. Fans have used Vine to film clips of their friends standing around, acting normally in ordinary places (i.e., on the sidewalk or at the supermarket) while the song plays. When the beat and the muffled "animals" lyric kick in, they drop to the ground, laying still.
Garrix also climbs on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (8-6; 21,000, up 21%), while the song's momentum carries him it to a new Hot 100 high (87-75).
REMIXED & 'RECHARGED': Linkin Park's remix album "Recharged" tops Dance/Electronic Albums and lands at No. 10 on the Billboard 200. Its sales of 33,000 are the third-best in a single week for any dance/electronic album this year; only Avicii's "True" and Atoms for Peace "Amok" sold more (50,000 each).
Linkin Park's set features "A Light That Never Comes," a collaboration with Steve Aoki, which bounds 17-11 on Dance/Electronic Songs. DJ Vice, DJ Enferno, Dirtyphonics and Schoolboy are among other remixers on the compilation.
RIHANNA TURNS 21: Rihanna scores her 21st No. 1 on Dance Club Songs with "What Now" (2-1), padding her lead over Janet Jackson (19) for the second-most toppers in the chart's 37-year history. Madonna leads with 43 No. 1s. Remixes from R3hab, Firebeatz and Guy Scheiman contribute to Rihanna's latest triumph, her fifth song to chart and third No. 1 from her "Unapologetic" album.
From the chart's 1976 start to the present, here are the artists with the most No. 1s on Dance Club Songs:
Janet Jackson, 19
Mariah Carey, 16
Kristine W, 16
SUMMER RETURNS: The late Donna Summer returns a classic to Dance Club Songs, as "MacArthur Park 2013," hailing from the new remix album "Love to Love You Donna," debuts at No. 39. She spent five weeks at No. 1 on the survey in 1978 with her original "MacArthur Park Suite."
New remixes from Laidback Luke have powered Summer's posthumous club play thus far, with new interpretations from Rosabel on the way.
