Gotye Is First To Top Hot 100, Alternative & Dance Charts Simultaneously
Recently, Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” hit #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart, meaning that it’s the first song ever to top these three categories. Via Billboard:
“Somebody” leads the Alternative airplay chart for a 10th frame and reaches No. 1 on Dance Club Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay. The song is the first to top all four tallies and just the third shared leader on Alternative and Dance/Club Play Songs, following U2’s “Discotheque” (1997) and New Order’s “Regret” (1993)
Popular remixes from dudes like Tiësto helped shore things up on the dance side.
