Kylie Minogue captures her 14th No. 1 on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart, as “Dancing” rises 2-1 (on the list dated May 12). The Australian icon ties Dave Aude, Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull for 10th place on the list of acts with the most leaders in the chart’s nearly 42-year history; Madonna reigns with 46 No. 1s (see below).
The original poppy “Dancing” was remixed for clubs by Anton Powers, Illyus & Barrientos and Initial Talk, among others.
The track, from Minogue’s Nashville-inspired album Golden, is her first Dance Club Songs entry since fall 2015, when “The Other Boys” (by NERVO featuring Minogue, Jake Shears & Nile Rodgers) became her 13th topper. “Dancing” is Minogue’s first No. 1 as a lead act in four years, since “Into the Blue” in April 2014.
Minogue scored her first of 18 top 10s and 23 chart hits 30 years ago this spring, when “I Should Be So Lucky” reached No. 10 (on June 4, 1988). She earned her second top 10 and first No. 1, “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” nearly 12 years later in 2002.

FROM KYLIE TO KYGO: Kygo returns to the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10, cruising 15-8 (one spot off its No. 7 high reached in March) with “Remind Me to Forget,” featuring Miguel. The top Streaming Gainer, “Remind” rounded up 5.4 million U.S. streams in the week ending May 3, up 34 percent, according to Nielsen Music. With its official video released May 6 (after the Thursday, May 3, close of the May 12-dated charts’ streaming tracking week), further gains could show on next week’s rankings. Kygo’s cut also commands an 18-7 improvement on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs, where it’s his fifth top 10 (and Miguel’s first).
Kygo, whose Kids in Love Tour hits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, May 11, also rises 9-4 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums with Kids in Love (4,000 equivalent album units earned, up 9 percent).
‘MINE’ IS HIS FIRST TOP 10: On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Bazzi bounces into the top 10 (11-7) with his first chart entry, “Mine.”
Also surging is Ariana Grande, whose “No Tears Left to Cry” soars 39-11. It’s only the third track this year to reach No. 11 or higher in as few as two weeks, following Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa’s “One Kiss,” which cruised 34-7 in its second week, and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey’s “The Middle,” which motored 24-4 in its second frame.
