FKA Twigs debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Nov. 23) with Magdalene.

FKA Twigs debuts at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated Nov. 23) with Magdalene. The set starts with 11,000 equivalent album units (5,000 in album sales), according to Nielsen Music.

The British singer-songwriter adds her second No. 1, following her first full-length, LP1, which topped the chart in September 2014. Magdalene is her fifth title to make the chart and fourth top 10, a run which commenced with EP2 (No. 5, October 2013).

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Twigs boasts six songs from the set, including “Sad Day,” the chart’s leading debut at No. 16, as it logged 1.6 million U.S. streams in the tracking week. Plus, “Holy Terrain,” featuring Future, which hit No. 18 in September, returns to the list at No. 22 with 995,000 clicks.

THEIR ‘TURN’ AT No. 1: Riton and Oliver Heldens hike 5-1 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with “Turn Me On,” featuring Vula, the first No. 1 for all three acts. The track is drawing airplay across multiple core-dance outlets, including KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and SiriusXM’s BPM.

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.

“Turn,” which samples both Yaz’s “Don’t Go” (No. 1 on Dance Club Songs for two weeks in 1982) and First Choice’s “Doctor Love” (No. 8, 1977), was remixed by Martin Jefferson and Kastra, among others. The track took in 343,000 U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week, contributing factors to its 28-25 improvement on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs. “Turn” also jumps 34-27 on Dance Club Songs and restarts at No. 21 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales.

GOOD ‘THING’: Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, David Guetta and Martin Solveig swing 11-9 with “Thing for You.” The song is Guetta’s record-extending 26th top 10 (ahead of runner-up Rihanna, with 24) and Solveig’s sixth.
