Skylar Stecker scores her first No. 1 as a lead act on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart (dated Sept. 2) with “Only Want You” (2-1). The pop-leaning original was remixed by Alex Acosta, Dave Aude and Richard Vission & Loren Moore, among others.
The track is the singer’s second leader, following “Sweet Dreams,” credited to JX Riders featuring Stecker, a year ago. Stecker has notched two other top 20 hits: “Rooftop” (No. 11, July 2015) and “Crazy Beautiful” (No. 14, February 2016).
Stecker discussed her latest chart achievement with Billboard.
Billboard: What are your thoughts on hitting No. 1 for the first time as a lead artist and earning your second career leader?
Stecker: Having “Only Want You” hit No. 1 on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart is beyond exciting. We’ve been watching it climb but by no means did that prepare me for the phone call I received from my manager telling me the amazing news. This song has such a special place in my heart and it’s such an honor to see it at the top.
How did “Only Want You“ come about?
I had the opportunity to work with legendary producer Tricky Stewart and we hit it off right from the start. Once it was finished we just looked at each other and knew we had something special.
What‘s next for you?
I’m finishing a whirlwind summer tour with a show at the U.S. Open in New York and a show with Kiss 107 (WFKS) in Cincinnati. As we head into the fall, I’m looking forward to working on more new music and continuing to share my journey.
