Marshmello Dominates Nielsen Music’s Mid-Year 2019 Dance/Electronic Charts

Marshmello dominates Nielsen Music’s mid-year 2019 dance/electronic charts. The masked producer’s “Happier,” with Bastille, is both the most streamed and biggest selling dance/electronic track so far this year, while his Fortnite Extended Set is the genre’s most popular album. (See charts, below.)

During the tracking period of Jan. 4 through June 20, 2019, “Happier” collected 528.7 million on-demand streams (audio and video combined), while also selling 246,000 digital downloads. As for Fortnite, it earned 212,000 equivalent album units in that span of time.

Equivalent album units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported on-demand audio streams generated by songs on an album, or 1,250 paid subscription on-demand audio streams generated by songs on an album. (For the sake of clarity, equivalent album units do not include listening to music on broadcast radio or digital radio broadcasts.)

Overall equivalent album units for the country genre totaled 9.1 million through June 20. That represents 3% of the total volume across all genres (305.2 million).

The biggest selling dance/electronic album so far in 2019 is an effort that is more than 10 years old: Lady Gaga’s The Fame. Released in 2008, the album sold 19,000 copies between Jan. 4 and June 20 of this year.
