Tiesto & Charli XCX’s ‘Hot in It’ Ignites on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart

Plus, moves for Kygo & Dean Lewis, Beyonce and Drake.

Tiësto and Charli XCX burn a path onto Billboard‘s multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated July 16) as “Hot in It” debuts at No. 10. The track earned 2.9 million U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the July 1-7 tracking week, according to Luminate.

The track is Tiësto’s seventh top 10 dating to the chart’s 2013 inception, following “The Motto,” with Ava Max (No. 2 peak, this March); “Don’t Be Shy,” with Karol G (No. 4, October 2021); “The Business” (No. 2, March 2021); “Jackie Chan,” with Dzeko and featuring Preme and Post Malone (No. 3, September 2018); “Wasted,” featuring Matthew Koma (No. 5, July 2014); and “Red Lights” (No. 5, May 2014).


For Charli XCX, “Hot” is her fourth top 10, after “Beg for You,” featuring Rina Sawayama (No. 10, this April); “Out Out,” with Jax Jones, Joel Corry and Saweetie (No. 9, October 2021); and her feature on Icona Pop’s “I Love It” (No. 1 for two weeks, May 2013).

Concurrently, “Hot” debuts on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (No. 5) and Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs (No. 16).

‘Loved’ Story

Additionally on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Kygo and Dean Lewis enter at No. 17 with “Never Really Loved Me.” With 1.6 million domestic streams and 700 downloads (also good for a No. 9 bow on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales), the track is Kygo’s 57th entry, second only to David Guetta’s 67 in the chart’s history. It’s also Kygo’s 36th top 20 showing, again second to Guetta (38).

“Loved” is Lewis’ second appearance on the chart, after “Used to Love,” with Martin Garrix (No. 10, 2019).

‘Break’-ing Through

Meanwhile, on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, Beyoncé bounds to her 12th top 10 with “Break My Soul” (11-6). The song is collecting core dance airplay on KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, Channel Q and iHeartRadio’s Pride Radio, among others. (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.)

Simultaneously, “Break” sizzles at No. 1 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs (for a second week) and Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (third each).

Plus, Drake surges to his eighth Dance/Mix Show Airplay top 10 with “Massive” (17-9). The song is scoring core-dance attention on WZFL (Revolution 93.5) Miami, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and SiriusXM’s Diplo’s Revolution.
