David Guetta gathers his landmark 30th top 10 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated July 24), as “Heartbreak Anthem,” with Galantis and Little Mix, leaps from No. 16 to No. 6. The achievement extends Guetta’s lead for the most top 10s among all acts dating to the chart’s August 2003 inception. Rihanna follows with 24.
“Heartbreak,” the seventh top 10 for Galantis and first for Little Mix, is drawing leading core-dance airplay at Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and iHeartRadio’s Evolution Network, 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.)
Meanwhile, the track surges 16-8 on the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart, marking Guetta’s sixth top 10, Galantis’ third and Little Mix’s first. “Heartbreak” earned 3.2 million U.S. streams, up 33%, in the tracking week ending July 15. (Tchami’s remix, released July 15, added to the song’s activity.)
On Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales, “Heartbreak” became Guetta’s 39th top 10 upon its debut (No. 5, May 29). That sum also leads all acts, with Kygo next (30) since the chart began in 2010.
In other Guetta news, his track “Hero,” with Afrojack, hits a new high on the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (48-22). Following the July 9 release of remixes by Nicky Romero and others, it spiked by 162% to 511,000 U.S. streams. The song reached No. 3 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay.
Additionally on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Zara Larsson lands her third top 10 with “Right Here” (14-9). Plus, Shouse, spurred by a remix by none other than Guetta, scores its first top 10 with “Love Tonight” (17-10). The latter also rises to new heights on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales (6-4) and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs (15-12).
