Plus, moves for Shane Codd, Alesso & Katy Perry and Years & Years.

Meduza and featured act Hozier hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Feb. 5) with “Tell It to My Heart.” The song marks the first leader on the list for both acts.

“Heart” is drawing core-dance play at a variety of full-time dance outlets, including Music Choice’s Dance/EDM Channel, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and SiriusXM’s BPM, according to MRC Data. (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.)
