Galantis, David Guetta and Little Mix lift from No. 2 to No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Aug. 14) with “Heartbreak Anthem.” The second leader for Galantis and first for Little Mix, “Anthem” is the 11th topper for Guetta. Dating to the chart’s start in August 2003, only Calvin Harris and Rihanna have more, each with 12.
“Anthem” is excelling at multiple core-dance outlets, including SiriusXM’s BPM, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel, according to 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.)
On the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, the track remains at No. 7, after reaching No. 6, with top Sales Gainer honors, up 82% to 1,000 sold in the week ending Aug. 5. It also surges 14-7 on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales. The track is discounted to 69 cents in the iTunes Store, while the group celebrated a milestone just ahead of the tracking week: its 100th career week in the top 10 of the Official UK Singles Chart, a first for an all-female group. Meanwhile, a Clean Bandit remix of “Anthem” was released Aug. 6.
