‘Paris’ Drops Out of Hot 100 Top 10, ‘Closer’ Surges Back Into Top 3

This post was originally published on this site

The Billboard Hot 100 just updated and here’s how all of your favorite EDM acts are performing on music’s most prestigious chart!

Firstly, The Chainsmokers. “Paris” dropped out of the Top 10 from debuting at #7 last week to #13 this week due to a slowdown in digital sales and streaming, but with a huge jump in the Radio Play chart, perhaps it could bounce back the following week. That being said, “Closer” returned to the Top 3, snagging the spot back from “Black Beatles” and continues to make pop radio history. Since its debut in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 back in August at #9, “Closer” has remained on the Top 10 for 26 consecutive weeks – let’s see how long they can keep this up.

“Starboy” by The Weeknd and Daft Punk drops from #5 to #8 which rounds out dance music’s representation in the Top 10. If you look further down though you’ll see that there are still representatives from the dance music world hanging around. “Let Me Love You” is holding steady at #16 for the second straight week while “Starving” climbs back in the Top 20 on the backs of a successful week for Grey, Hailee Steinfeld, and Zedd both going platinum and breaking new ground on the Mediabase adult contemporary charts.

Xenia Ghali – Places feat. Raquel Castro

This post was originally published on this site

Having already collaborated with Wyclef Jean and reaching #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart, Xenia Ghali is a quickly rising star in the scene. Her most recent release, “Places,” came out on her own independent record label Funky Sheep Records and further demonstrates that Ghali is a name to remember.

The track begins soft, pierced with Raquel Castro’s lustrous vocals. The chords carry the listener into a groove that gets your body ready to dance. The bass filled drop is all you’d hope from a dance hit. Combining deep house elements with a little groove, Ghali creates an audio atmosphere that is hard to tear yourself away from.

You can take a listen to this dance hit below:

Party Favor Takes On GTA

This post was originally published on this site

Debuting an EP that hits top 10 on Billboard, iTunes and Radio is very difficult task but Party Favor accomplished that with his hit EP ‘Party and Destroy’. Now Party Favor is back with a great remix to GTA’s “Lil Bit Of This”, which was featured on their album several months back. The remix hits right at home with some great 808 slaps, melodic pitch synths and a downtempo’d ending that would make anyone yell “Aye” about 30,000 times.

The Chainsmokers’ “Paris” Enters Hot 100 At #7, Highest Debut Yet

This post was originally published on this site

The Chainsmokers made a lot of history with their #1 hit “Closer,” but their new hit “Paris” is already looking to go ever further. For starters, “Paris” debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts at #7, the highest debut for The Chainsmokers yet. (“Closer” debuted at #9.)

According to Billboard,

“The song, released Friday, Jan. 13 (and accompanied by an official lyric video), enters Digital Song Sales at No. 2 (92,000); Streaming Songs at No. 9 (14.6 million); and Radio Songs at No. 32 (37 million). The duo earns its fourth Hot 100 top 10 and bests the No. 9 debut of “Closer” for their highest arrival. Also notably, the act has also ranked in the Hot 100’s top 10 for 38 consecutive weeks, thanks to “Paris,” “Closer” and the No. 3-peaking “Don’t Let Me Down” (featuring Daya). The record among duos or groups: 48 straight weeks in the top 10 for Ace of Base in 1993-94. Perry holds the overall mark: 69 weeks in a row in 2010-11.

Eyewitnesses are reporting multiple gunmen involved in BPM shooting

This post was originally published on this site

Citing police confirmation, The BPM Festival released an official statement yesterday, January 16, which asserted that the attack at Blue Parrot nightclub which killed five people and injured fifteen more was the work of “a lone shooter.” Eyewitnesses, however, are contradicting BPM’s statement, claiming that the shooting was carried out by multiple gunmen – with some accounts reporting the number of assailants to be as high as five.

Billboard has published statements from several anonymized eyewitnesses detailing the events of the Blue Parrot shooting. A 28-year old Australian man who was at the scene of the shooting has told Billboard that he saw “five Mexican men in black leather jackets attempt to gain entry to the Blue Parrot.” The same attendee alleges to have later seen one of the men exiting the incident through a police perimeter in “a button-down shirt, fedora hat and glasses, and…no longer wearing a leather jacket.”

Billboard has reported the following information from the Sydney attendee’s testimony:

“They got denied because they didn’t want to be patted down…Three of them left out of our vision and two of them shot security guards at the entrance, ran in and aimlessly opened fire. There were two guys there, not one like the news incorrectly reports.

“Outside the club it seemed like there were people actually squaring up as though it might have been cartel-related…It gave them the feeling that something was about to happen.”

Billboard notes the similarities between the above attendee’s account and an unverified report by local Mexican publication, Semanario Playa News Aquí y Ahora.

Another eyewitness to the incident, who Billboard deems “an industry source,” vehemently denies the notion that the attack was carried out by a lone gunman:

“There’s no way there was just one shooter…I must have heard shots that happened from the beach or street. How can one guy be shooting all this and not get caught?

The same source told the publication that he heard three rounds of gunfire, and reports from other attendees of an assailant firing shots from a car.

An “internationally-known male DJ/producer” who escaped from the shooting further corroborated the story of multiple gunmen to Billboard, stating, “I just want people to know the truth, because it was not just some crazy lone gunman…I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel right.”

Billboard notes that they have contacted The BPM Festival and authorities for statement, but have not published any response at press time. After ten years in Playa del Carmen, BPM has been banned for future editions.

Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha’s ‘In The Name Of Love’ Goes Platinum

This post was originally published on this site

As Martin Garrix’s first single with Sony/RCA, “In The Name Of Love” was a remarkably successful tune. The track peaked at #24 on Billboard’s Hot 100, though it not as successful as neither Bebe Rexha’s or Martin Garrix’s previously charting tracks.

The track reached Gold certification on December 12th, 2016, and the RIAA has officially declared the song as Platinum certified on January 9th, 2017, meaning it’s sold over one million units in the United States. Under RIAA’s revised conditions, 150 streams are equivalent to one download, an amendment that factors hugely in today’s music landscape.

Moby Responds to Trump Asking Him To DJ Inaugural Ball

This post was originally published on this site

Have you ever wondered what Moby would play if he DJ’ed an inaugural ball? How about if he DJ’ed an inaugural ball for a president that he despises? It is a well known fact that Moby is not a fan of Donal Trump, exemplified by his songs “Trump is on Your Side” and “Little Failure.” To further his point of frustration with Trump’s election, Moby wrote an open letter to Billboard which essentially said, “i guess there will be some cold, bitter schadenfreude in spending the next 4 years watching middle america wake up to the fact that donald trump is an incompetent con-man.” 

Now, a representative from Trump’s team reached out to a booking agent who contacted Moby to notify him that Trump wanted him to DJ an inaugural ball. This didn’t go over well with Moby, no shock there, as you can see in his Instagram post below. He also created a Spotify playlist showcasing the exact songs he would include in his set if he were to DJ an inaugural ball for Trump. He didn’t say no to the offer, stating that he would do it in exchange for Trumps tax returns. So, maybe we’ll see Moby DJ an inaugural ball playing some of the heaviest protest songs AND get Trump’s tax returns.
