Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: Martin Solveig, Morgan Page & Tritonal

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

Martin Solveig featuring Ina Wroldsen, “Places”

Solveig scores his sixth Dance/Mix Show Airplay hit with “Places” (new at No. 35), featuring Ina Wroldsen, who earns her first. The bouncy track benefits from airplay at core dance outlets KNHC Seattle, iHeartRadio’s “Evolution” affiliate WFLZ-HD Tampa, Florida, and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel. Solveig’s breakthrough, “Hello,” with Dragonette, topped the chart six years ago for four weeks.

Morgan Page featuring Lissie, “Don’t Give Up”

Page propels onto Dance/Mix Show Airplay for the eighth time with “Don’t Give Up” (No. 37). It’s also the third chart entry for vocalist Lissie, all as a guest on Page’s productions: she previously guested on “The Longest Road” (No. 14, 2008) and “Open Heart” (No. 25, 2015). “Don’t” draws much of its airplay from such dance-rooted stations as SiriusXM’s BPM, WFLZ-HD and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM.

Tritonal + Sj featuring Emma Gatsby, “Hung Up”

Tritonal, with Sj (aka Seth Jones) and featuring singer Emma Gatsby, lifts 47-42 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with “Hung Up.” It’s the seventh chart hit for the Austin-based house/trance duo of Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed and the first each for Sj and Gatsby. “Hung” hooked 522,000 U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 12, according to Nielsen Music.
