Flying ‘High’: The Chainsmokers Top Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart

Plus, moves for Sam Feldt & Rita Ora, DVBBS & Icona Pop, Diplo & Miguel and ODESZA.

The Chainsmokers‘ “High” bounds from No. 6 to No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Feb. 26). Reigning in only its fourth week on the list, “High” wraps the fastest rise to the top since Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae’s “You,” which needed just three weeks last May (and went on to rule for 11 weeks).

The duo also matches its quickest Dance/Mix Show Airplay coronation, as “Closer,” featuring Halsey, hit No. 1 in its fourth frame in September 2016. It led for a record 20 weeks.

“High” is The Chainsmokers’ eighth No. 1 on the chart, pushing them past Madonna for a solo claim of the fourth-most toppers dating to the ranking’s 2003 inception. Calvin Harris and Rihanna boast 12 each, followed by David Guetta with 11.

The poppy “High” is receiving mix show play as well as core-dance attention (thanks to an up-tempo Quinten Circle remix, among others) on SiriusXM’s BPM, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM Channel and WZFL (Revolution 93.5) Miami, 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.)

Continuing on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Sam Feldt scores his second top 10, and Rita Ora earns her fourth with “Follow Me” (13-9). The track is earning the entirety of its airplay on the chart’s reporting panel from core-dance outlets, including Music Choice, WZFL and iHeartRadio’s Evolution Network.

Similarly, DVBBS darts to its second Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10 and Icona Pop collects its fourth with “Do It Anyway” (18-10). Likewise, core-dance airplay dominates, led by Music Choice, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and Evolution.

On the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, Diplo and Miguel debut at No. 8 with “Don’t Forget My Love.” Diplo’s fifth top 10 and Miguel’s second, “Love” locked in 2.4 million U.S. streams and sold 1,500 downloads in the Feb. 11-17 tracking week. Concurrently, the song starts on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 4) and Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (No. 13).

Also entering the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10 is ODESZA’s “The Last Goodbye,” featuring legendary soul singer Bettye LaVette (17-10). The first top 10 on the chart for both acts, “Goodbye” garnered 1.9 million domestic streams, up 106%, in the tracking week.

“Goodbye” eclipses ODESZA’s previous best, achieved in its first appearance with “Say My Name,” featuring Zyra (No. 16, 2015).

Aiding its profile going forward, the official video for “Goodbye” premiered Feb. 18.
