‘Ted Lasso’ Sync Puts Martin Solveig & Dragonette’s ‘Hello’ on Dance/Electronic Charts

In the tracking week ending Sept. 23, “Hello” earned 515,000 on-demand U.S. streams, up 167%, and sold 4,000 downloads, up a whopping 11,017%, according to MRC Data. The latter figure makes for a re-entry on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart at No. 2, a new peak for the song, besting its prior No. 3 high in June 2011. Overall, it’s the 83rd chart week for “Hello,” which debuted in December 2010 and had last charted in August 2012.

In February 2011, “Hello” began a four-week reign on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and led Dance Club Songs for one week.

“Hello” is one of several songs receiving a spotlight in Ted Lasso, the Emmy Award-winning comedy starring Jason Sudeikis.

CODD COMMANDS: Shane Codd surges to the Dance/Mix Show Airplay summit with “Always on My Mind,” featuring Charlotte Haining (4-1). It’s the first Billboard leader for both acts. The song is drawing-dance attention at airplay leaders SiriusXM’s BPM, KMVQ-HD2 San Francisco and Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel.

In Codd’s prior appearance on the chart, he hit No. 2 in March with “Get Out My Head.”

NEW ‘MUSIC’: Steve Aoki and Armin van Buuren start at No. 26 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with “Music Means Love Forever.” The 32nd chart hit for Aoki and 12th for van Buuren opens with 560,000 domestic streams.

The song marks the latest team-up for the genre stars, who launched their own branded SiriusXM channels, Steve Aoki Remix Radio and A State of Armin, in February.
