"Roses (Imanbek Remix)" becomes his first leader.

Saint Jhn ascends to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated April 25) with "Roses (Imanbek Remix)" (2-1). His first leader also treks upwards on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, pushing 30-26.

"Roses (Imanbek Remix)" rules the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart for a fourth frame, with 13.7 million U.S. streams, up 5%, in the week ending April 16, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The track also returns for a second week at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, with 6,000 sold, up 3% (2-1). On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, the song ranks at No. 3 after three weeks peaking at No. 2.

Saint Jhn, the Brooklyn rapper-singer born Carlos St. John, first released "Roses" in July 2016. Kazakh producer Imanbek's remix arrived last September, spurring the song's global chart surge. It led the Official UK Singles chart for two weeks beginning March 28 and has hit the top 10 of multiple international surveys.

Notably, Saint Jhn becomes the first male soloist to top Hot Dance/Electronic Songs without any other billed artists in over five years, since Mr. Probz prevailed for 11 weeks in 2014-15 with "Waves." That track was similarly buoyed by a significant remix, by Robin Schulz, that outperformed its original acoustic-leaning pop version.

Plus, and fittingly for springtime, "Roses" marks the first title to have hit No. 1 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs twice dating to the chart's 2013 inception. The Chainsmokers' different composition by the same name ruled for 14 weeks in 2016, with their "Roses" making for a corsage of sorts, as it features none other than singer Rozes.
