Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: Dynoro & Ina Wroldsen, Flying Lotus, Don Diablo

Dynoro & Ina Wroldsen, Flying Lotus and Don Diablo are this week's Dance Chart Upstarts.

Dynoro & Ina Wroldsen, “Obsessed”

Lithuanian DJ/producer Dynoro and Norwegian singer Ina Wroldsen debut at No. 20 on Billboard‘s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated May 11) with “Obsessed.” Dynoro charted one prior title on the tally, as “In My Mind,” with Gigi D’Agostino, hit No. 4 last October. Wroldsen also scored a top 10 in her sole previous appearance, reaching No. 9 in 2017 as featured on Martin Solveig’s “Places.” “Obsessed” obtains airplay from core-dance affiliates, including KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and WCPY Chicago, according to Nielsen Music.

Dynoro tells Billboard, “I’m overwhelmed on the support of my last single [“Mind”] and really excited for my new track with the incredibly talented Ina Wroldsen. Thanks to everyone who’s believed in me.”

Flying Lotus feat. Little Dragon, “Spontaneous”

Los Angeles-based electronic producer Flying Lotus (real name Steven Ellison) makes his first foray onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, starting at No. 50 with “Spontaneous,” featuring Swedish act Little Dragon. The track previews Lotus’ forthcoming album Flamagra (May 24). While the track is his first to impact a songs chart for the genre, Lotus has a decade-plus history on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, including three top 10s and a No. 1, You’re Dead! (2014). This week’s debut is powered by streaming, as the track drew 463,000 U.S. streams in the week ending May 2.

Don Diablo with Jessie J, “Brave”

Dutch DJ Don Diablo, with vocals from London-based singer Jessie J, debuts at No. 19 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales with “Brave.” It’s Diablo’s top chart position and his second appearance, following “People Say” (featuring Paije; No. 25, February 2018). It’s also the top rank and second visit for Jessie J, again as the vocalist for a producer, following her feature on David Guetta’s “Repeat” (No. 45, 2011). “Brave” sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week.
