Lady Gaga’s Collabs With Ariana Grande & BLACKPINK Shine on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart

Plus, dance chart moves for Justin Bieber and Quavo.

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande bound 22-1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated June 6) with “Rain on Me.” The superstar pairing, which launched on the list last week based solely on its first three days of radio airplay, now benefits from a full week of airplay and its first seven days of streaming and sales data.

The 21-position catapult to No. 1 is the biggest since the chart’s January 2013 inception, eclipsing the 15-spot surge of Gaga’s first of three No. 1s, “Applause.” That track soared 16-1 on Aug. 31, 2013, and logged three total frames at the top. Gaga also led for two weeks this March with “Stupid Love.”

Both “Rain” and “Stupid Love” are from Gaga’s new album, Chromatica, released May 29.

“Rain” is Grande’s second Hot Dance/Electronic Songs topper, after “Break Free,” featuring Zedd, reigned for nine weeks in August-October 2014.

“Rain,” which concurrently blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, earned 31.4 million U.S. streams and 11.1 million airplay audience impressions and sold 72,000 in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The track starts at No. 1 on both the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales charts and debuts at No. 24 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay.

Also on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, another Lady Gaga collab from Chromatica, “Sour Candy,” with BLACKPINK, bows at No. 8. As Gaga adds two top 10s, she ups her total to six, the most of any female act in the chart’s history. She breaks out of a tie with Ellie Goulding, Nicki Minaj and Bebe Rexha, each with five top 10s.

“Candy,” BLACKPINK’s first Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10, collected 2.5 million U.S. streams and sold 7,000, also good for debuts at No. 17 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs and No. 3 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales.

GOOD ‘INTENTIONS’: Justin Bieber bumps 12-9 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with “Intentions,” featuring Quavo. Bieber banks his 17th top 10 and Quavo adds his fifth. Bieber boasts the fourth-most top 10s in the chart’s archives, after David Guetta (26), Rihanna (24) and Calvin Harris (18).
