Anabel Englund earns her first Billboard No. 1, bounding from No. 7 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Oct. 31) with “Picture Us.” Englund’s second top 10 on the tally follows “So Hot,” which hit No. 2 in May.
“Picture” is snapping up a plethora of core-dance radio play, including on leaders KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and WCPY Chicago, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. (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 nearly 80 top 40-formatted reporters).
Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Illenium leaps 16-5 with “Nightlight,” with play on KMVQ-HD2, SiriusXM’s BPM and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel, among other core-dance outlets. It’s Illenium’s second top 10 and first since his one-week No. 1 with The Chainsmokers, “Takeaway,” featuring Lennon Stella, last November.
“Nightlight” also notches Illenium his third top 10 on the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart, where it jumps 14-9. The track, also stable at its No. 8 peak on the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs survey, earned 3.1 million U.S. streams in the tracking week ending Oct. 22.
Over on Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Autechre arrives at No. 7 with Sign. The set starts with 3,000 equivalent album units, nearly all from album sales, amounting to the act’s best career sales week and highest-ever chart position. Autechre’s first charted title since 2013 is its second top 10, over 17 years after its inaugural entry Draft 7.30 (No. 9, April 2003).
Meanwhile, on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Master KG rises 12-9 with “Jerusalema,” featuring Burna Boy and Nomcebo Zikode. It’s the first top 10 on the chart for all three acts.
