Illenium and Nina Nesbitt surge to No. 1 from No. 4 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated April 8) with “Luv Me a Little.”

Up 45% in plays March 24-30, as the survey’s Greatest Gainer, the track is drawing core-dance airplay on SiriusXM’s BPM, Music Choice’s Dance/EDM channel and iHeartRadio’s Evolution network, among other outlets, according to Luminate.


The track turns somber source material into a hit. Says Illenium, “This song’s about one-sided relationships and overinvesting in people who don’t give you that love back.”

Illenium, originally from Illinois, notches his fourth Dance/Mix Show Airplay No. 1. Nesbitt, from Scotland, leads the list for the first time.

Illenium’s three previous No. 1s, for a week each, on the chart: “Takeaway,” with The Chainsmokers and featuring Lennon Stella (November 2019); “Nightlight” (November 2020); and “Hearts on Fire,” with Dabin and LIGHTS (April 2021).

“Little” previews Illenium’s self-titled album, due April 28.
