Plus, moves for Steve Aoki & Galantis, David Guetta & Anne-Marie, Odetari, Depeche Mode and more.

Calvin Harris claims the mark for the most No. 1s in the history of Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart all to himself, as “Miracle,” with Ellie Goulding, rises to the top of the tally dated May 20. Harris adds his 13th leader on the list, which began in August 2003, moving one ahead of both David Guetta and Rihanna.


The trancey “Miracle” is Goulding’s sixth topper and second with Harris, after “Outside” in 2015. Here’s a look at Calvin Harris’s record 13 Dance/Mix Show Airplay No. 1s.

“Miracle” is drawing core-dance airplay on KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and WCPY (Dance Factory FM) Chicago in the May 5-11 tracking week, according to Luminate. (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 around 60 top 40-formatted reporters.)

Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Steve Aoki, Galantis and Hayley Kiyoko bound 16-10 with “Hungry Heart,” the sixth, 10th and first top 10 for each respective act.

Shifting to the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, David Guetta, Anne-Marie and Coi Leray lock in top Streaming Gainer honors with “Baby Don’t Hurt Me” (5-4), after the song’s official video premiered May 5. The track, a reworking of Haddaway’s 1993 hit “What Is Love,” earned 3.6 million official streams in the United States in the week ending May 11, up 15%. It also drew 7.3 million radio airplay audience impressions, up 13%, and sold 1,000 downloads, up 20%.

Concurrently, “Baby” bumps 13-6 on the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart, giving Guetta his ninth top 10, Anne-Marie her second and Leray her first. It also pushes 5-3 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales.

Sticking with Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, viral sensation Odetari debuts at No. 8 with “Good Loyal Thots.” His second top 10 in quick succession, after “Narcissistic Personality” (No. 10, May 6), garnered 3.4 million streams in its opening frame. That figure also sparks a No. 11 start on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs.

Meanwhile, Depeche Mode claims the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart’s top Sales Gainer award for “Ghosts Again” (30-19). The lead single from the act’s LP Memento Mori is up 103%, following the May 5 release of official remixes by Chris Liebing and Luke Slater, Miss Grit, Davide Rossi and more. “Ghosts” also gathered 542,000 streams, up 52%.
