Dance/Electronic Digital Songs is a weekly chart that ranks the best-selling digital dance and electronic singles in the United States, according to Billboard. Although it originally started tracking singles the week of January 2, 2010, it did not become an official chart until the issue dated April 3, 2010.
The Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart tracks the 50 most popular downloaded dance music singles, including tracks that are exclusively available online only. This chart also includes previously released dance and disco songs that became available for downloading, which means that songs like "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by Dead or Alive are eligible to chart.
On January 17, 2013, Billboard added a new chart, Dance/Electronic Songs, which tracks the 50 most popular Dance and Electronic singles and tracks based on club play, single sales, radio airplay, digital downloads, and online streaming. As such, this chart serves as the main component for the Dance Club Songs, Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Dance Single Sales, and Dance/Electronic Digital Songs charts.
The chart's first number one was "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga in the January 23, 2010 issue and Gaga's songs spent so far (as December, 2014) a total of 1025 weeks on the chart. The chart's longest running number-one is "Bulletproof" by La Roux, reigning at the lead position for 18 consecutive weeks.
