Dance Top 40?! When did this get renamed? Billboard still says the chart is called Dance Radio Airplay. OmegaWikipedia 14:09, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

Why is this listed like this? Why not in the more traditional way like the Hot 100? Without the notes, and repeating the song when needed.? --Crunkier21 (talk) 02:23, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree, this format is bad - the article is going to get huge. The songs should be placed in lists like all other charts and countries and all of this commentary needs to be removed. The little comments/tidbits can easily be placed into the songs' articles. - eo (talk) 16:00, 24 January 2008 (UTC)
The number ones list needs to be spun off into their own articles, this will forever continue to grow. I was going to get started on this in the next day or two. I also still feel that the column featuring "commentary" needs to be deleted completely. This kind of information belongs in the individual song articles. No one has commented on this in a while - any thoughts before I move these? - eo (talk) 20:17, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
It's been months now - I will work on these today. I'm going to use the basic format of all other "number-ones" lists and I'll include the remixer(s) column. The commentaries do not belong here so I'm getting rid of them. All of that info can be placed into the articles for the individual songs. - eo (talk) 12:16, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Move done: The lists of number-ones have been removed from here and onto their own pages, organized by year (same formatting as the countless other number-ones lists in Wikipedia). This will prevent the article from becoming monstrously long. Gone are the POV chart commentaries on each song - this type of information belongs in the song articles, not in lists. Also removed is the "Artists with most number-ones" list. This chart is way too new to warrant such a list - most artists at this point are tied for 2, 3 or 4 number-ones.... it is just not necessary at this point. - eo (talk) 16:56, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

It seems it's no longer featured online... 21:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

The links for the current chart go to the Dance Club Play songs chart. Wolfer68 (talk) 19:11, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Changes to this chart, including name[edit]

I cannot find it on or (maybe someone can help finding the source link?) but here is the latest from the print edition, issue date November 19, 2001, from "Over the Counter" column by Keith Caulfield:

"Effective this week, Billboard's Dance Airplay chart is renamed Dance/Mix Show Airplay, as its source of data is widely expanded. Formerly a ranking based on airplay at six dance-formatted reporters (four terrestrial radio stations, plus SiriusXM's BPM channel and Music Choice's Dance/Electronica channel) the plays-based list expands to include mixshow plays on mainstream top 40 and select rhythmic stations that have submitted their hours of mixshow programming, as monitored by Nielsen BDS, to Billboard. Following the change in methodology, which affords a fuller view of national dance radio airplay, Rihanna's 'We Found Love', featuring Calvin Harris, rebounds 11-1." - eo (talk) 18:52, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Pop artists[edit]

Recent edits by a single editor have removed text that explains that some artists on the dance/mix show chart are not, in fact, dance artists and that these artists appear on the chart because their songs were remixed. The rationale provided for these edits is that the removed text is "personal commentary" and unsourced. Please discuss how the removed text is commentary when it is inherent fact, and therefore, unnecessary to cite a source. (talk) 04:50, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

It is common knowledge that the performers under discussion are not dance music performers. Even the extensive Wiki articles themselves about these performers don't suggest that the individuals are dance music artists. I'm not sure a source can be found to "prove" that these people are *not* something; it's like trying to prove or disprove the existence of God. Not all text in Wiki articles requires a source if the text describes a fundamental truth ("the sky is blue", for example, does not require a citation). The deleted text appears to be appropriate in providing context to why performers who are not dance artists have appeared on this chart. 55401612MSP (talk) 06:03, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Fastest climb[edit]

Adele wasn't the first artist to reach the top in just four weeks, as stated in this article by Billboard. BrunzPOP (talk) 23:13, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
