Flume’s ‘Palaces’ Moves In at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart

Plus, moves for Farruko, Lizzo and Alesso & Zara Larsson.

Flume debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated June 4) with Palaces. The set opens with 7,600 equivalent album units earned in the May 20-26 tracking week, according to Luminate.

It’s the second leader for the Australian DJ/producer, following Skin (June 2016), as well as his fourth top 10, after Hi This Is Flume: Mixtape (No. 2, April 2019) and Skin Companion EP I (No. 3, December 2016).

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, the new set’s “Highest Building,” featuring Oklou, bows at No. 12 with 1.6 million U.S. streams. It’s one of nine debuts from the LP, which also spurs three re-entries, led by “Say Nothing,” featuring MAY-A, at No. 18 (1.1 million streams, up 239%). Flume pads his count to 31 career appearances on the chart, a sum that includes two top 10s: “The Difference,” featuring Toro Y Moi (No. 10, March 2020) and “Never Be Like You,” featuring Kai (No. 3, July 2016).


Farruko’s Fourth Top 10

Farruko adds his fourth Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10 as “Nazareno” debuts at No. 9. The song starts with 1.6 million domestic streams and sales of 500 downloads, also good for a No. 15 bow on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. Plus, the Latin-EDM crossover enters Hot Latin Songs (No. 47).

Farruko’s other Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10s are “El Incomprendidio,” with Victor Cardenas and DJ Adoni (No. 4, October 2021), “Pepas” (nine weeks at No. 1, beginning in August 2021) and “On My Way,” with Alan Walker and Sabrina Carpenter (No. 8, April 2019).

‘Time’ Flies

On the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, Lizzo leaps to her third top 10 with “About Damn Time” (21-9). The song follows her 2019 No. 1s “Good as Hell” (two weeks on top) and “Truth Hurts” (nine).

With radio-ready remixes from Purple Disco Machine and Kue, among others, “Time” is drawing core-dance attention on Channel Q, iHeartRadio’s Pride Radio and SiriusXM’s Diplo’s Revolution, along with a smattering of mix show plays. (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 70 top 40-formatted reporters.)

A Few More ‘Words’

Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Alesso scores his 12th top 10 and Zara Larsson zips to her fourth with “Words” (11-10). The track concurrently holds at its No. 10 high on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, first attained a week ago.
