Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: SOPHIE, David Guetta & Showtek, Rudimental & Major Lazer


Each week, Billboard Dance looks at songs & albums rising on Billboard’s dance charts.

SOPHIE, Oil Every Pearl's Un-Insides

Scottish producer/DJ SOPHIE starts at No. 20 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated June 30) with Oil Every Pearl's Un-Insides. The set earned 2,000 equivalent album units, roughly half from traditional album sales, in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. SOPHIE scores her best sales week and chart position, eclipsing that first album, Product (No. 23, 2015). Oil also earns a No. 3 entrance on Dance/Electronic Album Sales, giving the dance/pop producer her first top 10 on a Billboard albums chart.

David Guetta & Showtek, “Your Love”

Superstar French DJ/producer David Guetta, teaming with Dutch DJ duo Showtek (brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen), sails onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 19 with “Your Love.” The collaboration bows with 881,000 U.S. streams and 3,000 downloads sold, the latter also good for a No. 8 launch on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Guetta has now 31 charted titles, second only to Calvin Harris' 32, while Showtek has scored six; those, one was its previous track with Guetta, “Bad” (featuring VASSY), which hit No. 11 in 2014.

Rudimental & Major Lazer featuring Anne-Marie & Mr. Eazi, “Let Me Live”

London-based electronic act Rudimental, with Major Lazer and featuring Anne-Marie and Mr. Eazi, leaps onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 20 with “Let Me Live.” The track gathered 1.2 million domestic streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the tracking week, also sparking a No. 23 start on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. It's Rudimental's first top 20 and third total entry on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and the 23rd appearance for Major Lazer, the second for Anne-Marie and the first for Mr. Eazi. The track previews Rudimental's forthcoming album Toast to Our Differences, due Sept. 7.
