Well, he’s done it. Calvin Harris reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Dance/Electronica chart two albums in a row.
Calvin Harris careens onto Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1 with Motion (35,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan). Motion, which includes cameos from Ellie Goulding, Haim and Gwen Stefani, among others, also motors onto the Billboard 200 at No. 5, marking the highest chart position and best sales week for a DJ since Skrillex’s Recess debuted on April 5 (No. 4, 47,000). Motion is Harris’ second Dance/Electronic Albums No. 1, following 2012’s 18 Months.
Additionally, “Blame” also reached #1, “tying Avicii as the only acts with two toppers each since the chart’s Jan. 26, 2013 inception.”
