Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: Christina Aguilera, Felix Jaehn & Goldroom
Each week, Billboard Dance looks at rising songs & albums making moves on Billboard's dance charts.
Christina Aguilera featuring Nile Rodgers, "Telepathy"
Christina Aguilera soars into the Dance Club Songs top 20 in just three weeks with "Telepathy," featuring Nile Rodgers (up 28-18 on the Oct. 15-dated chart). The track, from the soundtrack to the Netflix series The Get Down, was remixed by Eric Kupper, Moto Blanco and Solidisco, to name a few. Aguilera has scored eight No. 1s on the chart, dating back to 2003's "Beautiful," while Rodgers has tallied three.
Felix Jaehn featuring Alma, "Bonfire"
Jaehn, whose remix of OMI's "Cheerleader" helped turn it into last year's Song of the Summer, is new at No. 30 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "Bonfire," featuring Alma. It's the second chart hit for the German DJ (and the first for vocalist Alma), who reached No. 15 in 2015 with his cover of Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody," featuring Jasmine Thompson. "Bonfire" has already reached the top 10 on multiple European charts. Of the domestic spins tallied in the tracking week, 38 percent were from networks, including Music Choice's dance/EDM platform and SiriusXM's BPM.
Goldroom, West of the West
Goldroom (a.k.a. Josh Legg) enters Top Dance/Electronic Albums at No. 16 with his first full-length album, West of the West. Opening track "Silhouette," which showed at No. 36 on the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart on July 30, has enjoyed airplay on SiriusXM's Chill channel, where the Boston-bred, Los Angeles-based producer was featured as a guest mixer on Sept. 30. He's taking his downtempo electro-pop sound on a U.S. tour with Autograf, through Nov. 12.
