‘Ted Lasso’ Sync Puts Martin Solveig & Dragonette’s ‘Hello’ on Dance/Electronic Charts

Martin Solveig and Dragonette's 2011 hit "Hello" impacts a pair of Billboard's Oct. 2-dated dance/electronic charts, following its inclusion in the Sept. 17 airing of Apple TV+'s Ted Lasso.

Martin Solveig and Dragonette‘s 2011 hit “Hello” impacts a pair of Billboard’s Oct. 2-dated dance/electronic charts, following its inclusion in the Sept. 17 airing of Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso (the ninth episode of the series’ second season).

“Hello” bows at No. 11 on the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, marking the track’s inaugural appearance on the list, which began in January 2013. Solveig’s ninth charted title and Dragonette’s second, “Hello” is now the highest peaking song for both acts. (The survey, which premiered in 2013, permits — like the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 — older tracks with new activity to appear if ranking in its upper half.)


In the tracking week ending Sept. 23, “Hello” earned 515,000 on-demand U.S. streams, up 167%, and sold 4,000 downloads, up a whopping 11,017%, according to MRC Data. The latter figure makes for a re-entry on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart at No. 2, a new peak for the song, besting its prior No. 3 high in June 2011. Overall, it’s the 83rd chart week for “Hello,” which debuted in December 2010 and had last charted in August 2012.

In February 2011, “Hello” began a four-week reign on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and led Dance Club Songs for one week.

“Hello” is one of several songs receiving a spotlight in Ted Lasso, the Emmy Award-winning comedy starring Jason Sudeikis.

CODD COMMANDS: Shane Codd surges to the Dance/Mix Show Airplay summit with “Always on My Mind,” featuring Charlotte Haining (4-1). It’s the first Billboard leader for both acts. The song is drawing-dance attention at airplay leaders SiriusXM’s BPM, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel.

In Codd’s prior appearance on the chart, he hit No. 2 in March with “Get Out My Head.”

NEW ‘MUSIC’: Steve Aoki and Armin van Buuren start at No. 26 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with “Music Means Love Forever.” The 32nd chart hit for Aoki and 12th for van Buuren opens with 560,000 domestic streams.

The song marks the latest team-up for the genre stars, who launched their own branded SiriusXM channels, Steve Aoki Remix Radio and A State of Armin, in February.
