Celine Dion is back at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart for the first time since 2008.
The Canadian superstar’s song “Ashes”, from the “Deadpool 2” soundtrack, claimed the top spot, thanks to remixes by DJs Steve Aoki and Riddler, among others.
“First off, I’m a Celine Dion fan,” Riddler told Billboard. “So when I was asked by Columbia Records to be one of two official remixers, I kinda fanboyed. I knew Steve Aoki was already doing a mix, so I decided to go in a different direction.”
Released amid Pride celebrations going on worldwide, the remix took off on the club scene.
“Several of my DJ peers played my version during their Pride sets,” Riddler said. “Because of my radio background, I also made sure the remix was something that mix shows could work into other similar records. ‘Ashes’ has been doing very well in my sets and the social media support from Celine Dion’s fans has been great!”
“Ashes” is Dion’s third song ever to reach No. 1 on the dance-club songs chart after “Misled” in 1994 and “Taking Chances” in 2008, and is her sixth song overall to make the chart’s Top 10.
