Lady Gaga’s ‘Dawn of Chromatica’ Returns to Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart After Vinyl Release

Plus, moves for Flume, ODESZA, The Chainsmokers & GAYLE.

Lady Gaga is back on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart with Dawn of Chromatica, following its Feb. 4 release on vinyl. The remixed set of songs from her 2020 No. 1 Chromatica re-enters at No. 6, having earned 2,700 equivalent album units (up 412%), with 2,300 from physical sales – 2,200 on vinyl, in the Feb. 4-10 tracking week, according to MRC Data.

It’s the second time that Dawn has returned to the chart after its arrival on a new configuration: Its CD release spurred 3,200 units, with 2,700 from sales, bringing the set back at No. 5 on the Dec. 4, 2021, survey.

Dawn debuted at No. 1 on the Sept. 18, 2021-dated chart (11,000 units), marking Gaga’s seventh leader, tying her with Louie DeVito for the most dating to the chart’s 2001 inception. Its success also contributed to Gaga earning the No. 1 ranks on Billboard’s 2021 year-end Top Dance/Electronic Artists and Top Dance/Electronic Albums Artists recaps.

THAT’S SOMETHING Australian DJ/producer Flume enters the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart at No. 12 with “Say Nothing,” featuring fellow Australian singer MAY-A. Flume’s 20th chart entry, and MAY-A’s first, previews Flume’s album Palaces, expected May 20. The track opens with 1.4 million U.S. streams. Flume has notched two top 10s: “Never Be Like You,” featuring Kai (No. 3, 2016), and “The Difference,” featuring Toro Y Moi (No. 10, 2020).

Additionally on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, ODESZA opens at No. 17 with its 14th chart hit, “The Last Goodbye,” featuring Bettye LaVette, who earns her first. It’s ODESZA’s highest debut and second-highest rank, after breakout hit “Say My Name,” featuring Zyra (No. 16, 2015). “Goodbye” garnered 913,000 domestic streams in the tracking week.

Notably, “Goodbye” interpolates LaVette’s 1965 song “Let Me Down Easy.” The legendary artist boasts seven top 10s, including two No. 1s, on Billboard‘s Blues Albums chart (and was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2020).

NEW ‘HIGH‘ On the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, The Chainsmokers roll to new heights with “High” (11-6), the duo’s 11th top 10. The pop-leaning track is drawing mix show attention and, thanks to an up-tempo Quinten Circle remix, among others, core-dance play on SiriusXM’s BPM, iHeartRadio’s Pride Radio network and WZFL (Revolution 93.5) Miami. (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, GAYLE grabs her first top 10 with “abcdefu” (17-7). With remixes from Nitti Gritti and Fat Tony & Medun, the pop/alternative track gains core-dance airplay at BPM and SiriusXM’s Diplo’s Revolution.
