Madonna crowns Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Sept. 3) with the arrival of her remix collection Finally Enough Love. The icon adds her third No. 1 on the chart — which began in 2001 — and first in a decade, following Confessions on a Dance Floor (13 weeks at No. 1, 2005-06) and MDNA (four, 2012).
As previously reported, the new album also enters the Billboard 200 at No. 8, with 30,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week (Aug. 19-25), according to Luminate. With the debut, Madonna becomes the first woman with newly charting Billboard 200 top 10s in the 1980s, ’90s, 2000s, ’10s and ’20s.
The retrospective of previously released dance remixes is culled from Madonna’s 50 No. 1s on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. (Four remixers of those hits – Tony McGuinness, of Above & Beyond, William Orbit, Shep Pettibone and Tracy Young– recently discussed their experiences remixing the Queen of Pop with Billboard’s dance director, Katie Bain.)
Zedd & Morris Return
On the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, Zedd, Maren Morris and BEAUZ’s “Make You Say” soars in at No. 5. Zedd ties Marshmello for the fifth-most top 10s (13) dating to the chart’s 2013 inception (Kygo leads with 23), while core country star Morris earns her second and BEAUZ logs its first.
“Make” is Zedd’s second collaboration with Morris, after “The Middle” (also with Grey) spent 33 frames at No. 1 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs in 2018, becoming the No. 1 song of that year. “Make” bows with 3.8 million official streams and 800 downloads sold in the U.S., also good for openings on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (No. 7) and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 5).
Additionally on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Alesso and Zara Larsson storm 28-15 with “Words,” which wins top Streaming Gainer honors. Spurred by the Aug. 19 release of its Majestic Remix, “Words” vaulted by 44% to 1.4 million streams.
New Airplay Top 10s
Shifting to the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, Steve Aoki adds his fifth top 10 and singer HRVY scores his first with “Save Me” (11-7). The track is gathering core-dance airplay on Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and SiriusXM’s BPM, among others. (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.)
Not to be outdone, Dillon Francis also darts to his fifth Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10, while ILLENIUM earns his fourth and EVAN GIIA gets his first, with “Don’t Let Me Let Go” (12-9).
