Anabel Englund and MK (aka Marc Kinchen) vault from No. 11 to No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated April 10) with “Underwater.” It’s Englund’s second topper, following “Picture Us” last October, and MK’s first.
“‘Underwater’ is a song that encapsulates my complete essence,” Englund tells Billboard. “So, to know that listeners are taking me in through their ears and hearts all over the country to the point where it has reached No. 1 makes me so elated. Thank you, USA, ilysm!”
The track, which sports remixes from Dombresky, Nightlapse and Redfield, among others, earns a share of the record for the biggest leap to No. 1 dating to the chart’s August 2003 inception. It joins Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” (2009), Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris (2011), and David Guetta’s “Stay (Don’t Go Away),” featuring Raye (2019), all of which also soared 11-1.
“Underwater” gains thanks to notable increases on core-dance stations, including KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco (91 plays, up from 76); Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel (79, up from 72); and WZFL (Revolution 93.5) Miami (53, up from 31), according to MRC Data. The Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart measures radio airplay on a select group of full-time dance stations, along with plays during mix shows on nearly 80 top 40-formatted reporters.
Shifting to the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, the Bee Gees’ ’70s classic “More Than a Woman” re-enters at a new No. 7 high, its profile boosted thanks to a surge of activity on TikTok. It’s the group’s second top 10 on the chart (which premiered in January 2013), after fellow ’70s disco anthem “Stayin’ Alive” (No. 6, last December, following the release of the group’s HBO documentary How Can You Mend a Broken Heart).
“Woman” earned 2.6 million on-demand U.S. streams, up 50%, and sold 1,000 downloads, up 34%, in the week ending April 1. Concurrently, the track soars 21-9 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs. It re-enters at No. 13 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales.
Further on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, producer ATB (aka, Andre Tanneberger), Topic and A7S ascend 12-10 with “Your Love (9PM).” The first top 10 for ATB and the second each for Topic and A7S, “Love” collected 1.8 million on-demand domestic streams, up 19%, and sold 500 downloads, up 121%, in the tracking week.
“Love” also lifts 10-7 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay and bows at No. 18 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. The track reimagines ATB’s breakthrough “9PM (Till I Come),” which reached No. 7 on Dance Club Songs in 1999.
