Alison Wonderland’s ‘Awake’ Arrives at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums

Plus, moves for Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa, Marshmello & Anne-Marie, PNAU & Lisa Stansfield.

Alison Wonderland debuts at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated April 21) with Awake. Of the set’s 7,000 equivalent album units, 4,000 are from traditional album sales, according to Nielsen Music.

Awake earns the Australian DJ her career-best sales week and second leader, following Run (which debuted with 3,000 sold) in April 2015. Wonderland is the first solo female to reign since Feb. 25, 2017, when Lady Gaga led with The Fame, the record-extending 107th week at No. 1 for the 2008 set; before Wonderland, Lindsey Stirling was the last woman to debut atop the chart, with her 2016 release Brave Enough that September.

Concurrently, two tracks from Awake start on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, “Church” (No. 35) and “No” (No. 44). “Church” also ranks at No. 18 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, after reaching No. 16.

‘KISS’ ON THE LIST: Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa leap 14-2 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with “One Kiss,” which debuted a week earlier from three days of airplay. The track, released April 6, soars with 7.7 million U.S. streams, 21,000 downloads sold and 12 million in all-format airplay audience. Harris earns his record-padding 15th top 10 and Lipa lands her second.

“Kiss” starts at No. 2 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, helping Harris pad his mark for the most top 10s among all acts since the chart’s April 2013 inception, 12; The Chainsmokers follow with nine top 10s.

“Kiss” also enters at No. 2 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, good for Harris’ 21st top 10 and pushing him a step closer to leader David Guetta (28 top 10s since the list’s 2010 launch).

Plus, in vaulting 34-7 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, “Kiss” becomes Harris’ 16th top 10, second only to Guetta and Rihanna (24 each) in the chart’s nearly 15-year lifespan.

‘FRIENDS’ ASCENDS: Atop Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Marshmello and Anne-Marie each earn their second leader as “Friends” rises 2-1. Marshmello first topped that chart on Dec. 16 with “Silence,” featuring Khalid, while Anne-Marie first reigned as featured (with Sean Paul) on Clean Bandit’s “Rockabye” in February 2017.

Elsewhere on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, PNAU pounces 12-9 with “Go Bang,” its first top 10.

STANSFIELD RETURNS: Lisa Stansfield visits Dance Club Songs for the first time in 15 years with “Never Ever,” new at No. 34. The track, remixed by Rob Hardt, Mike Cruz and others, marks the pop/R&B singer’s first appearance since a remix of her 1990 classic No. 1 “All Around the World,” titled “All Around the World (Norty Cotto Remix),” reached No. 34 in May 2003. Stansfield owns seven No. 1s, the most recent of which, “I’m Leavin’,” led in April 1998.

“Never” is from Stansfield’s April 6-released studio album, Deeper, which debuts at No. 7 on Germany Albums, No. 15 on the Official U.K. Albums chart and No. 44 on Independent Albums (selling 1,000 copies in the U.S.).
