Albums by Chet Faker (No. 6), Swedish House Mafia (No. 7) and Duck Sauce (No. 10), plus the various artists effort "The Space Project" (No. 9), round out the onslaught of top 10 bows.
Only once before had as many as five albums debuted in the top 10: Titles by The Chemical Brothers, Erasure, The Riddler & Vic Latino, M83. and Lemon Jelly did so (at Nos. 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8, respectively) on Feb. 12, 2005.
'TURN,' 'TURN,' 'TURN' ('TURN'): DJ Snake and Lil Jon, in their fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, capture a triangle of chart honors with "Turn Down for What," the chart's top Airplay, Digital, and Streaming Gainer.
"Turn" tallies a 10th week at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, with 120,000 sold (up 26 percent). The cut spends a third week at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, garnering 4.5 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS. On the airplay side, "Turn" travels 9-8 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay and cruises 38-23 on the all-format Radio Songs chart (44 million audience impressions, up 28 percent). On the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, it rises 8-7, reaching a new peak.
GUETTA'S 'BAD': David Guetta and Showtek shoot up Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Bad" (36-20). Featuring Vassy's vocals, it's the top debut on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (No. 36, 4,000 downloads sold, up 45 percent), while posting a 202 percent streaming gain (264,000 U.S. streams, with 61% from Spotify).
Guetta's presence on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs is also evident on two other top 20 tracks, his own "Shot Me Down" (No. 15) and Afrojack's "Ten Feet Tall," (16-14), which Guetta remixed.
NOW THAT'S 'SOMETHING': A Great Big World hits No. 1 on Dance Club Songs with its first charted effort, "Say Something" (2-1). The song becomes the eighth leader for duet partner Christina Aguilera. Remixes (although not available commercially) by Marc Stout, Riddler and Bent Collective, among others, helped power "Something," a ballad in its original form, to the top.
