Zedd and Selena Gomez‘s “I Want You to Know” debuts at Number 9 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. The song sold more than 12,000 downloads, according to Nielsen Music. “I Want You to Know” is Zedd’s sixth Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, which ties him with Calvin Harris for the most Top 10 songs on the chart. Harris currently has two Top 10 singles on the chart including, “Outside” at Number 2, and “Blame” at the Number 7 position. The electronic chart is actually a new music category on Billboard, which launched in 2013. Zedd co-wrote “I Want You to Know” with Ryan Tedder and Kevin Drew, and it will be featured in the EDM DJ’s upcoming sophomore album. The song is also ranked at Number 6 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart, after it was released on February 23rd.
Coldplay’s “A Sky Full Of Stars” is the Number 8 song on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Besides the band’s success on the music charts, Coldplay’s Chris Martin is celebrating his new title as the Curator of the Global Citizen Festival. The singer will be the festival’s curator for the next fifteen years, which was established by the United Nations. The Global Citizen Festival is just one of the seventeen goals on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals list, which hopes to put an end to global poverty by the year 2030. Martin believes the goal can be accomplished by making the event as glamorous as possible, and getting big names like Beyonce to help promote it.
Chris Martin wants to make the seventeen goals just as famous as the music event, and he believes it starts with bringing awareness to all of the 193 countries in the world. Martin has already reached out to the founder of Live Aid, Bob Geldof. Both charities share the common goal of ending poverty, and so Martin wants them to work together, instead of competing against one another. The singer hopes to get all of the charities, that promote ending property, involved in the festival, including the non-governmental organizations. The Global Citizen Festival committee includes Richard Curtis (Creative Director), Hugh Evans (Global Poverty Project CEO), and Amina J. Mohammed (UN special advisor). Chris Martin will officially begin his role as the curator of the Global Citizen concert on September 26th at New York’s Central Park.
