“Seeing ‘Dance’ go to No. 1 is a huge honor, especially as a co-writer,” Davis tells Billboard of the track, which he penned with Lonnie Fowler. “I moved to Nashville with the hopes of maybe one day having a No. 1, and this being my second means the world to me. I have an amazing team around me that makes these things possible. Especially during such a trying time in our country right now, this is uplifting. I’m very grateful.”
