Each week, Billboard Dance looks at songs & albums rising on Billboard's dance charts.

3LAU featuring Yeah Boy, "On My Mind"

Las Vegas-based DJ/producer 3LAU (real name: Justin Blau) blows onto Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated June 3) at No. 38 with "On My Mind," featuring Yeah Boy. It's the seventh chart hit for the DJ, whose Bounce Haus by 3LAU show can be heard every Saturday night on SiriusXM's BPM. "On" marks the second chart appearance for Australian act Yeah Boy (aka Johnny Castro), who teamed with 3LAU on last summer's "Is It Love"; Castro, as half of duo Parachute Youth (along with Matt Kvon), reached No. 2 on Belgium Digital Song Sales with "Can't Get Better Than This" in 2012. Core dance stations such as Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel, KNHC (C89.5) Seattle and BPM are putting "On" on-air most often.

Hardwell & Austin Mahone, "Creatures of the Night"

Dutch DJ Hardwell and Texas native Austin Mahone enter Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 36 with "Creatures of the Night." The track collected 582,000 U.S. streams and sold 2,000 downloads in the week ending May 18, according to Nielsen Music. While the collab is the sixth chart hit for Hardwell, Mahone earns his first. Concurrently, Mahone's "Lady" (featuring Pitbull) rises 4-2 on Dance Club Songs, where it's also his first entry.

Zia, "The Cool"

Australian songstress Zia (full name: Zia Moreau) zooms 19-9 on Dance Club Songs with "The Cool." Her first chart hit and top 10, Zia describes the catchy house track as a "rhythmic celebration of cool friends and hot club nights." "The Cool," written by Zia and produced by UK-based Geoffrey Ahn, was remixed by StoneBridge, DJ Kue and Damien Hall, among others.
