Each week, Billboard Dance looks at songs & albums rising on Billboard's dance charts.
Starley, "Call on Me"
Pop singer Starley starts at No. 38 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated March 11) with "Call on Me," her first chart hit. Seattle's full-time dance-formatted KNHC (C89.5) leads in radio airplay, granting the Ryan Riback-remixed track more than twice as many plays (34) in the tracking week ending Feb. 26 as any other format outlet, according to Nielsen Music. KNHC program director JB McDaniel tells Billboard of the remixed track, "We discovered it in December and put it on a head-to-head new music feature, where our listeners voted for it enthusiastically and repeatedly." The global hit, which reached No. 6 on the Official UK Singles chart (Feb. 11), "spent almost a full week knocking off other big records. That's when we knew it was going to be a great song in the station's rotation. It's been in our top category since December and shows no signs of stopping."
