P!nk Hits No. 1 on Dance Club Songs Chart With 'What About Us' ... t-about-us
10/19/2017 by Gordon Murray

Plus, Tiesto debuts with his latest 'Clublife' compilation.

P!nk parades to the pinnacle of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Oct. 28) for the first time in five years, and for a third time total, as "What About Us" rises 2-1.

Remixed by Cash Cash, Barry Harris and Madison Mars, among others, the track hails from P!nk's new studio set, Beautiful Trauma, which is expected to launch at No. 1 on the Nov. 4-dated Billboard 200.

She scores her second top 10 of 2017 -- marking her first set of multiple top 10s in a calendar year -- as Stargate's "Waterfall" (featuring P!nk and Sia) hit No. 7 in August.

P!nk has placed 15 songs, including seven top 10s, on Dance Club Songs, dating to "There You Go," which reached No. 8 in March 2000. She first hit No. 1 in January 2002 with "Get the Party Started" and returned to the top a decade later with "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" in October 2012.

Additionally, "What" rises 11-10 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, where it's P!nk's 17th top 10; among women, only Rihanna (the leader among all acts, with 29) and Mariah Carey (23) have notched more.

On Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Tiesto takes hold at No. 17 with Clublife, Vol. 5: China. The set starts with 2,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music. China, the fifth in the DJ's global series, dating to 2011's No. 3-peaking Clublife Volume One: Las Vegas, is his 21st entry, second only to Armin van Buuren's 31.

On Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, Tiesto's "Carry You Home" (featuring Stargate and Aloe Blacc) ranks at No. 37, up 8 percent to 470,000 U.S. streams.

Halsey's 'Bad at Love' Debuts on Streaming Songs Chart ... ongs-chart
10/19/2017 by Kevin Rutherford

Also, Post Malone and Lil Pump continue rises in the chart’s top 20.

Halsey slots her second track as a lead artist onto Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart (dated Oct. 28) with “Bad at Love,” which bows at No. 47 with 11.8 million streams earned in the week ending Oct. 12, a 15 percent boost, according to Nielsen Music.

The debut comes as the track continues to make headway on U.S. radio, as the track rises 17-16 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, and debuts at No. 49 on the all-format Radio Songs chart. Further, "Bad at Love's" Streaming Songs chart arrival follows the release of a remixes EP for the song, with new takes on the single provided by Dillon Francis, Autograf and more. That also helps the song leap 49-40 for a new peak on the Billboard Hot 100.

Halsey’s previous single, “Now or Never,” peaked at No. 30 on Streaming Songs (June 24) and she led the chart for 12 weeks as the featured act on The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” last year.

Meanwhile, Post Malone’s surprise viral hit “I Fall Apart” continues to find a new life on streaming services, climbing 18-11 on Streaming Songs (20 million streams; up 26 percent) while reaching a new peak of No. 3 on the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart, which pulls in only on-demand audio streams in the U.S. (a chart Malone leads for a fifth week with “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage).

As a result of the breakout streaming success, I Fall Apart” will be serviced to rhythmic radio, impacting Oct. 17.

The Streaming Songs chart’s greatest gainer is Lil Pump, whose “Gucci Gang” jumps 16-9 with 20.8 million streams, up 28 percent. The song’s gain is twofold: in addition to continually increasing fanfare as the song gains in radio and sales metrics as well, it also leaps due to the release of Lil Pump’s new self-titled mixtape, released Oct. 13, which concurrently debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 (46,000 units).

“Gucci” is the rapper’s first top 10 on Streaming Songs and also becomes his first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, moving 46-32.

Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: Martin Solveig, Fenix & Lisa Williams, Carbon Based Lifeforms ... a-williams
10/19/2017 by Gordon Murray

French DJ/producer Martin Solveig scores his seventh entry on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, as "All Stars," featuring Alma, arrives at No. 39 (on the list dated Oct. 28). The track takes the majority of its airplay from three core-dance outlets: SiriusXM's BPM, Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel and KNHC (C89.5) Seattle.

Solveig tallies his second chart appearance of 2017, after pulling into No. 9 with "Places," featuring Ina Wroldsen, in April. "Stars" is also the second total entry for Finnish singer Alma (real name Alma-Sofia Miettinen), whose featured vocals on Felix Jaehn's "Bonfire" helped bump the track to No. 26 a year ago. Fittingly, given their backgrounds, "Stars" has already connected internationally, including among its haul a No. 2 peak on Belgium Digital Song Sales.

Moscow-native Fenix (real name Alex Mamonov) celebrates his first top 10 on a Billboard chart as his collaboration with singer Lisa Williams, "California Sun," soars 11-6 on Dance Club Songs. The Russian DJ first found his way onto the ranking with "All Around the World," featuring Chris Casino (No. 14, July). "Sun" marks Williams' sixth chart appearance and second top 10, following "Higher Love," which reached No. 3 in May. "Sun" was remixed by Ralphi Rosario, Hoxton Whores and Tavo, among others.

"California Sun," Fenix tells Billboard, "came to life because of my love for the summer, and I imagined doing a song with this in mind. The talented Lisa Williams took the track and elevated it to a level which gave it the right emotion. Once I got the vocals, it took me three days to complete the record. It was organically produced and just felt right."

And now, Fenix marvels, "Wow, my name in the top 10 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart … this is unbelievable, a true honor."

Swedish ambient duo Carbon Based Lifeforms (Daniel Segerstad and Johannes Hedberg) earns its inaugural Billboard chart appearance, debuting at No. 12 on Dance/Electronic Album Sales with Derelicts. The act's fifth album and first in six years, Derelicts took over two years to complete. Carbon Based Lifeforms elected to make a music video for track "Accede" in order to present images of archival NASA space landscapes, nature clips and fire dancers. The act promoted the release with parties in Helsinki, Finland and in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden, among other international locales.

August Burns Red & Camp Bow on Top Christian Albums Chart ... bums-chart
10/19/2017 by Jim Asker

August Burns Red earns its fifth No. 1 & Camp collects his 11th top 10.

Pennsylvania hard rock band August Burns Red debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart (dated Oct. 28) with its eighth studio full-length, as Phantom Anthem arrives with 19,000 equivalent album units (17,000 in traditional sales), according to Nielsen Music.

The set marks the band's fifth Top Christian Albums No. 1 and fourth to arrive in the penthouse. Its most previous set, Found in Far Away Places, notched the group's strongest sales week, opening at No. 1 with 29,000 sold on the chart dated July 18, 2015. The act's other leaders: Leveler (2011), Constellations (2009) and debut entry The Messengers (2007).

At No. 2 on Top Christian Albums, The Answer, the new set from singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp, enters with 13,000 units (12,000 in pure album sales). Camp's 10th LP grants the 39-year-old Lafayette, Indiana, native his 11th Top Christian Albums top 10, a total that includes six leaders. He reached the top 10 in his first chart appearance, with the No. 10-peaking Stay in 2004.

"Word of Life," the first single from The Answer, lifts to new highs on Christian Airplay 5-4 (up 5 percent to 8 million audience impressions) and Hot Christian Songs (11-8, after having become the band's 21st top 10 on the Sept. 23-dated tally, the fourth-highest total in the chart's history).

Bruno Mars' 24K Magic Tour Tops $129 Million Earned (and Counting) ... ion-earned
10/20/2017 by Bob Allen

Bruno Mars has topped $129 million in ticket sales so far from the ongoing tour in support of 24K Magic, his third studio album released in November of 2016. The most recent report of box office activity from the tour’s producer, Live Nation, includes $76 million in revenue from the pop star’s current trek through North American cities that runs through Nov. 11. Sales from this trek through the U.S. and Canada earn Mars a slot on Billboard’s weekly recap of Hot Tours (see list below).

The 24K Magic Tour launched earlier this year in Europe with a slate of arena dates through 34 cities that stretched from March 28 until June 15. The North American leg followed after a brief four-week break, beginning with a July 15 performance at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Through the tour’s Oct. 10 performance at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia (the last show included in this week’s report), a total of 659,190 sold tickets at 42 concerts in 32 cities produced the $76 million North American gross.

Nine venues on the trek hosted Mars for two performances, but only Chicago’s United Center booked the tour for three nights. With sellouts at each show, the Windy City arena logged a total of 47,942 fans in attendance on Aug. 16, 18 and 19 with sales hitting $6.3 million. It is the singer’s highest-grossing North American engagement this year and ranks second among all the dates reported worldwide since the tour began in the spring. Only London’s O2 Arena logged a higher gross with £5.1 million ($6.6 million) earned at four performances in April.

Now nearing the end of his first run stateside, Mars is set to wrap the 17-week jaunt with a four-show stint at The Forum in Los Angeles on Nov. 7, 8, 10 & 11. Shows in Latin American markets are booked for the remainder of 2017 and early next year, followed by a trek through Australia and New Zealand.

Gwen Stefani's 'Christmas' Debuts at No. 1 on Holiday Albums Chart ... bums-chart
10/20/2017 by Keith Caulfield

It’s not even Halloween yet, but Christmas albums are already starting to hit the charts, including Gwen Stefani’s new You Make It Feel Like Christmas. The album debuts at No. 1 on the Holiday Albums chart dated Oct. 28 with 10,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 12, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 9,000 were in traditional album sales.

The set also enters at No. 51 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The Holiday Albums and the Billboard 200 charts rank the week’s most popular holiday albums, and all-genre albums, respectively, based on their overall consumption. That overall unit figure combines pure album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

You Make It Feel Like Christmas is Stefani’s first holiday effort, and follows her Billboard 200 No. 1 album This Is What the Truth Feels Like, released in 2016.

The Holiday Albums chart is a seasonal Billboard tally, which is compiled and published weekly from October through early January each year. The Oct. 28 edition of the list is the second week of the chart’s current season.

Also on the new Holiday Albums chart, Alabama’s American Christmas debuts at No. 4, Fantasia’s Christmas After Midnight enters at No. 4, and Elvis Presley’s Elvis Christmas With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra bows at No. 6.

Upcoming holiday album releases include Sia’s Everyday is Christmas (due Nov. 17), Lindsey Stirling’s Warmer in the Winter (Oct. 20) and a deluxe reissue of Pentatonix’s Billboard 200 No. 1 effort A Pentatonix Christmas (Oct. 20).

In 2016, while overall album sales declined 16.8 percent (falling from 241.4 million in 2015 to 200.8 million in 2016), the sales of Christmas albums rose 10.6 percent (climbing from 7.2 million to 7.97 million).
