Lil Wayne & SIDEPIECE Debut on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart With ‘A Milli (Remix)’
Plus, moves for Bizarrap & Shakira, BUNT. & Nate Traveller and The Chainsmokers & Cheyenne Giles.
Lil Wayne, teaming with SIDEPIECE, bows on Billboard‘s multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Jan. 28) with “A Milli (Remix)” (No. 16). The collab, a remix of Lil Wayne’s 2008 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs No. 1, earned 869,000 U.S. streams from its Jan. 13 release through Jan. 19, according to Luminate.
Lil Wayne’s fifth Hot Dance/Electronic Songs entry, and first as a lead act, marks his highest debut and second-highest rank, after only his featured turn on David Guetta’s “Light My Body Up,” also featuring Nicki Minaj (No. 13, 2017).
“A Milli (Remix)” brings the third appearance — and top-charting — for SIDEPIECE, the duo of Nitti Gritti/Ricky Mears and Party Favor/Dylan Ragland. Previously, the act reached No. 25 with its Diplo collab “On My Mind” in January 2020.
Concurrently, “A Milli (Remix)” debuts on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 21).
’53’ = 1
Bizarrap and Shakira each reign for the first time on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (6-1) and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (2-1), with “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” Meanwhile, the team-up jumps 7-2 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, with 20.2 million streams, 7.9 million in airplay audience and 9,000 sold Jan. 13-19 (its first full tracking week, following its Jan. 11 release at 7 p.m. EST). It also crowns the Hot Latin Songs chart (16-1) and enters the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 at No. 9.
German DJ/producer BUNT. (aka Levi Wijk) and singer Nate Traveller debut at No. 15 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart with “Clouds.” It’s BUNT.’s second and top showing, after “Old Guitar” (No. 45, 2016), and the initial chart appearance for Traveller. “Clouds” starts with 920,000 stateside streams.
Chainsmokers, Giles Debut
Further on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, The Chainsmokers and Cheyenne Giles arrive at No. 17 with “Make Me Feel.” The track, which begins with 899,000 streams, is The Chainsmokers’ 52nd charted title, the fourth-most among all acts dating to the chart’s inception 10 years ago this week. Only David Guetta (73), Kygo (61) and Marshmello (53) have more. “Feel” is the first Billboard chart entry for singer Giles.
