The Glitch Mob & DJ Snake Score No. 1s on Dance/Electronic Charts

Plus, moves for Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa and Chantel Jeffries.

The Glitch Mob (Justin Boreta, Edward Ma and Joshua Mayer) garners its second No. 1, and first in four years, on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated May 19), as See Without Eyes opens with 7,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. With 6,000 from traditional album sales, the collection also starts at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Album Sales.

Eyes is the act’s fifth Top Dance/Electronic Albums entry, a run that began with 2010’s Drink the Sea, which reached No. 15, and its first leader since its prior original full-length, Love Death Immortality, in March 2014.

SNAKE’S FIRST No. 1: Shifting to Dance Club Songs, DJ Snake snares his first No. 1 with “Magenta Riddim” (2-1). Fueled by its original version and its Lumberjack and Nalli Agon remixes, among others, the song is Snake’s fifth chart entry; he debuted with his Dillon Francis collaboration, “Get Low,” in April 2014. “Magenta,” Snake’s first unaccompanied appearance, has easily bested his previous high set by “Lean On,” with Major Lazer and featuring MO (No. 18, 2015).


Snake, who will be performing at this year’s Hot 100 Festival, also hit Dance Club Songs twice in 2016, with “Middle,” featuring Bipolar Sunshine (No. 33), and “Let Me Love You, featuring Justin Bieber (No. 19).

GRANDE HITS TOP 10: On Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Ariana Grande grabs her eighth top 10 with “No Tears Left to Cry” (11-10). Among those are two toppers: “Break Free” (featuring Zedd, 2014) and “Love Me Harder” (with The Weeknd, 2015). Mix show airplay of the poppy original is aided by remixes from Junior Sanchez and DJ Mike D. (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 approximately 80 top 40-formatted reporters).

‘ONE’ GAINS AT No. 2: Turning to Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa’s “One Kiss” earns all three gainer awards at No. 2. The track drew 26 million in radio audience (up 15 percent) and 10.8 million U.S. streams (up 8 percent) and sold 9,000 downloads (up 14 percent) in the tracking week. “Kiss” is also the Greatest Gainer on Dance Club Songs (9-3).


WORTH THE ‘WAIT’: New to the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10 is DJ Chantel Jeffries, storming in at No. 10 with “Wait.” Featuring Offset and Vory, “Wait” marks the first appearance on the chart for all three acts, and the first entry on any Billboard tally for Jeffries and Vory. “Wait” earned 2.6 million U.S. streams and sold 4,000 downloads in the tracking week, also good for a No. 4 bow on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales.
