BUILDING A HIT: Tegan and Sara, aided by comedy troupe the Lonely Island, score their first Hot Dance/Electronic Songs listing, as "Everything Is AWESOME!!!" opens at No. 11, fueled by 32,000 first-week downloads sold. The track is from the soundtrack to the box office-topping animated film "The Lego Movie" (which also contains three non-dance interpretations of "AWESOME!!!" by other artists).
'TALL' TALE: Also debuting on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs is Afrojack's "Ten Feet Tall" at No. 22. The cut, which premiered in a Bud Light commercial during Fox's broadcast of the Super Bowl (Feb. 2), sold 7,000 downloads last week, good for its No. 24 entrance on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs.
LUCKY No. 13: Katy Perry scores her 13th consecutive (and overall) No. 1 on Dance Club Songs with "Dark Horse" (the Billboard Hot 100's No. 1 title for a third week), courtesy of remixes from Goldhouse, Manhattan Clique, Country Club Martini Crew and 4FRNT, among others.
Perry extends her record for the most leaders in a row since the chart's Aug. 28, 1976, inception as a national survey for the second time this year; "Unconditionally" gave her 12 straight No. 1s on the chart dated Jan. 4. The streak, which began with "Waking Up in Vegas" in August 2009, includes all of Perry's chart hits after her first two, 2008's "I Kissed a Girl" (No. 25 peak) and "Hot N Cold" (No. 32).
With her 13th No. 1, Perry's march up the list of acts with the most Dance Club Songs No. 1s continues, as she ties Whitney Houston and Lady Gaga for ninth place. Here are the artists with the list's most toppers:
19, Janet Jackson
16, Mariah Carey
16, Kristine W
15, Donna Summer
14, Jennifer Lopez
13, Whitney Houston
13, Lady Gaga
13, Katy Perry
12, Enrique Iglesias
SLOW 'BURN': Ellie Goulding collects her second No. 1 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, as "Burn" climbs 2-1. Only seven songs needed more than Goulding's 18 weeks to ascend to No. 1 dating to the chart's August 2003 launch. Krewella's "Alive" (32 weeks) holds the record for completing the longest journey to the top.
Goulding previously led the survey for two weeks in September 2012 with her breakthrough smash "Lights."
