'22 Jump Street' Soundtrack Makes Top 5 Chart Debut on Dance Chart
The soundtrack to the box office champion “22 Jump Street” debuts at No. 4 on Dance/Electronic Albums with 2,000 units sold in the week ending June 15, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The companion album to the action comedy, starring Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube, is chock full of EDM songs which dot Billboard's various Dance/Electronic charts, including Tiesto’s “Wasted,” featuring Matthew Koma.
"Wasted" holds in the top 10 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs while claiming Digital Gainer honors (24,000 downloads, up 31 percent). The sales sum lifts “Wasted” 8-4 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, granting Tiesto his second top five on that list, following his previous single, “Red Lights” (No. 4 peak). Look for Tiesto’s major label album debut, “A Town Called Paradise,” to debut on Dance/Electronic Albums next week. Also included on “22 Jump Street” are former Hot Dance/Electronic Songs hits such as “Get Up (Rattle)” (No. 15 peak) by Bingo Players, “Express Yourself” (No. 40) by Diplo, “Freak” (No. 43) from Steve Aoki, Diplo & Deorro, and Duck Sauce’s “NRG” (No. 47).
'HANGOVER' ARRIVES: PSY, assisted by Snoop Dogg, debuts at No. 4 Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 4 with “Hangover.” The debut, fueled by streaming and sales, is the highest in the short history of the chart, which premiered on Jan. 26, 2013. “Hangover” glides in at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, only the first time a song has debuted at the top since the chart’s inception just over a year ago. The first? PSY, with “Gentleman.”

“Hangover” garnered 7.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending June 15, nearly all from YouTube, according to Nielsen BDS. PSY also penetrates Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, where he enters at No. 8 (16,000 units).
NEW HEIGHTS: Above & Beyond also makes waves on Dance/Electronic Albums, scoring their second top 10 with “Anjunabeats: Volume 11” (24-6, 2,000 units). The trance trio previously charted with four other editions of their “Anjunabeats” series, never reaching higher than No. 12. While having charted nine albums overall, the act has placed six on the chart since 2010: only David Guetta (7), Tiesto (8), and Armin Van Buuren (10) have charted more albums in that time period. Above & Beyond’s highest-peaking album remains “Group Therapy,” which reached No. 4 three years ago this week.
A CONTINUING MAU5-TALE: As forecasted a week ago Deadmau5 debuts on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with a song from his brand new double album, “while(1<2),” for the fourth consecutive week. This time it’s "Phantoms Can’t Hang” (No. 16, 17,000 downloads sold). Previously, “Avaritia” debuted at No. 22, “Seeya” hit at No. 25, and “Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer” entered at No. 20. Cumulatively, the four songs have sold 83,000 units so far. Look for the album, released June 17, to hit near the top of Dance/Electronic Albums next week.
RITA DOESN’T DISAPPOINT: Rita Ora reaches the Dance Club Songs summit for the third time in as many tries with “I Will Never Let You Down” (3-1). The track follows Ora’s 2012 chart-toppers “R.I.P” and “How We Do (Party).” Remixes from R3hab, Steve Smart and WestFunk, Gregor Salto, and others contributed to Ora’s chart triumph.
