Purity Ring registers its second No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, as WOMB starts atop the April 18-dated tally with 6,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
WOMB follows Another Eternity, which spent three weeks atop the chart in 2015. The electronic act adds its third top 10, a total that also includes Shrines (No. 2, 2012).
The new set has yielded two tracks on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, “stardew” (No. 36, March 7) and “peacefall” (No. 32, April 4).
On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Krewella collects its second leader with “Greenlights” (3-1). The act’s 11th chart hit and fifth top 10 is its first No. 1 since its debut, “Alive,” which led for three weeks in May 2013.
“Greenlights” is drawing airplay at core-dance outlets, led by KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, SiriusXM’s BPM and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel. (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.)
Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, two tracks trek into the top 10 for the first time. Gryffin earns his third top 10 with “Body Back,” featuring Maia Wright, who tallies her first (13-9), while Steve Kroeger and Skye Holland each make their first top 10 trip with “So Close” (17-10).
Looking at Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Kygo collects his 15th top 10, and Sasha Sloan scores her first, as “I’ll Wait” debuts at No. 5. Kygo bows at No. 5 for a second straight week, following “Like It Is,” with Zara Larsson and Tyga, last week. Kygo continues in third place for the most top 10s since the chart’s January 2013 inception, after The Chainsmokers (19) and Calvin Harris (18).
Additionally, “Wait” becomes Kygo’s sixth No. 1 (and Sloan’s first) on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, selling 10,000 downloads in the week ending April 9. Plus, with 3.4 million U.S. streams, “Wait” waltzes in at No. 5 on Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs.
Continuing on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Illenium earns his third top 10, and Excision and I Prevail each tally its first, with the arrival of “Feel Something” at No. 8. The track opens with 8.9 million U.S. streams and 5,000 sold.
