Skrillex, Fred Again.. & Flowdan’s ‘Rumble’ Rolls Into the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart’s Top 10

Plus, moves for the DJ with PinkPantheress & Trippie Redd; Wuki's Stevie Nicks makeover; and Armin van Buuren.

Skrillex, Fred Again.. and Flowdan fly into the top 10 on Billboard‘s multimetric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Jan. 21) with “Rumble,” up from No. 15 to No. 10. The song, released Jan. 4 and which debuted on the Jan. 14 tally from just two days of data, reaped 2.8 million streams and sold 1,000 downloads Jan. 6-12, according to Luminate.


“Rumble” marks the sixth top 10 for Skrillex and the first each for Fred Again.. and Flowdan. Skrillex boasts one leader: “Where Are You Now,” with Diplo and Justin Bieber, for two weeks in 2015.

Concurrently, “Rumble” roars on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (13-4) and enters Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (No. 11).

But there’s more from Skrillex: His “Way Back,” with PinkPantheress and Trippie Redd, opens at No. 13 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs. The track, which starts with 1.8 million streams, is Skrillex’s 38th entry, dating to “Right In,” which hit No. 24 just after the chart began in January 2013. “Back” marks the third appearance for Trippie Redd and the first for PinkPantheress.

‘Seventeen’ at 50

Wuki, aka DJ/producer Kris Barman, debuts on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with “Edge of Seventeen” at No. 50. It’s Wuki’s first solo Billboard charted title, following a run with Innerpartysystem, which hit the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart with the EP Never Be Content (No. 15, 2011).

“Seventeen” – with unbilled vocals by U.K. singer Clementine Douglas – is a cover of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and legendary Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks’ classic “Edge of Seventeen (Just Like the White Winged Dove),” which scaled Mainstream Rock Airplay (No. 4, September 1981) and the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 11, April 1982). More recently, Miley Cyrus interpolated the song, with Nicks, in “Edge of Midnight (Midnight Sky Remix),” a reworking of Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky,” a No. 14 hit on the Hot 100 in 2020.

‘Dice’ Is Winning

Shifting to the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, Armin van Buuren bursts into the top 10 with “Roll the Dice,” featuring Philip Strand (14-8). van Buuren’s 11th top 10 and Strand’s first, the song is drawing core-dance airplay on Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel, iHeartRadio’s Evolution and KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, among other outlets. (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.)
