ILLENIUM "Nightlight" Rises to #1 on Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay & Mediabase Dance Radio Chart



Platinum crossover electronic artist and producer/DJ ILLENIUM’s “Nightlight” rises to #1 to claim the top spot on both the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart and Mediabase Dance Radio Chart. This is ILLENIUM’s first concurrent #1 on both charts as a solo producer. “I’m so excited to see everyone connecting with ‘Nightlight’. Feels so good to finally get to show the world what I’ve been working on.  To see it resonate with everyone as much as it has with me is always the goal. Thank you so much to all the radio programmers and to all the DSPs for all the love!”, shares ILLENIUM.

Since its August 28 release via 12Tone Music, the track has amassed over 40M global streams and continues to grow week over week with consistent playlisting along with significant core radio play that has led to this dual chart feat. Two volumes of remixes have followed featuring MOTi, Michael Calfan, LNY TNZ and more. Of this achievement, Steve Bartels states "All of us at 12Tone are thrilled to be able to be a part of another artist first---in this case-- ILLENIUM’s first dual chart #1. We are very appreciative of ILLENIUM’s belief in us and are thankful to all of radio, the programmers and DJ's, the DSP’s and the remixers that helped to bring this incredible new song--"Nightlight"-- home to the top."

“Nightlight” is ILLENIUM’s first single since his 2019 album Ascend, which has over 1 billion streams and became his first number one on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, reaching his highest peak on the Billboard 200. His latest single, “Paper Thin” with Tom DeLonge (blink-182) and Angels & Airwaves has over 3M streams in its first week.

ILLENIUM’s 40-date North American Ascend headline tour featured a massive production consisting of a five-piece live band and sold out landmark venues including Madison Square Garden, STAPLES Center, Chase Center, and three consecutive nights at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

As one of the most successful crossover electronic artists today, Denver-based producer/DJ ILLENIUM, née Nick Miller, has elevated dance music via his bold, progressive take on the genre. His expansive sound, which mixes elements of celestial electronic, mellow alternative, rock-fuel dubstep, emotional indie and pop-tinged bass music, has topped the U.S. charts, and garnered more than 4 billion collective streams.
