Sigala, Ella Eyre "Came Here For Love"

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

Sigala & Ella Eyre, "Came Here for Love"

London-based DJ/producer Sigala (real name: Bruce Fielder), teaming with Ella Eyre, soars onto Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated July 8) at No. 35 with "Came Here for Love."

The song scored 690,000 U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week (ending June 22), according to Nielsen Music. It's the fourth chart hit for Sigala, the titles of which all contain "love," following "Easy Love" (No. 16, 2015), "Sweet Lovin'," featuring Bryn Christopher (No. 37, 2016), and "Give Me Your Love," featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers (No. 44, 2016). The new track is the first Hot Dance/Electronic Songs hit for vocalist Eyre, whose "Waiting All Night" (by Rudimental featuring Eyre) hit No. 2 in 2013 on Euro Digital Song Sales.

Way Out West, Tuesday Maybe

British DJ duo Way Out West (Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff) wades onto Dance/Electronic Album Sales at No. 7 with Tuesday Maybe. Although the pair has been releasing music for two decades, Tuesday is its first to crack a Billboard album sales chart. The duo has placed two tracks, including one top 10, on Dance Club Songs: "The Gift," featuring Miss Joanna Law (No. 39, 1997), and "Mindcircus," featuring Tricia Lee Kelshall (No. 6, 2002). Tuesday marks the act's first Billboard chart appearance in 15 years, since "Mindcircus."

ZETA, Zeta

ZETA zooms onto Dance/Electronic Album Sales at No. 9 with its self-titled debut LP. It's the first-ever Billboard chart appearance for the act, a U.K.-based trio of songwriters/producers Paul Ortiz and Katie Jackson and vocalist Daniel Tompkins. Somewhat uncommonly for 2017, the '80s synth-pop and industrial-influenced set credits no featured acts.
