Chart performance[edit]

In the United States, "Dynamite!" did not make the Billboard Hot 100, but it hit number one on the Dance Club Songs chart (where it was her only number-one hit in general),[1] and it peaked at number eight on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.[2] Lattisaw was just 13 years old when she made it to number-one and was the youngest act to have a number-one single on the Dance Club Songs chart at that time.
