Dance Club Play chart entries

From the inception of the Billboard Dance Club Play chart (also known as Club Play Singles, and formerly known as Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance/Disco) until the week of February 16, 1991, several (or even all) songs on an EP or album could occupy the same position if more than one track from a release was receiving significant play in clubs. Beginning with the February 23, 1991 issue, the dance chart became “song specific,” meaning only one song could occupy each position at a time. Therefore;

  • “Your Love Is So Good for Me” and “Top of the World” was a double A-side 12″ single, so these two count as one No. 15 on this chart.
  • “Lovin’, Livin’, Givin'” and “What You Gave Me” was a double A-side 12″ single, so these two also count as one No. 35 on this chart.
  • “The Boss”, “No One Gets the Prize” and “It’s My House” all appear on Ross’ The Boss album, so these three count as one No.  on the Club Play chart.
  • “Upside Down” and “I’m Coming Out” was a double A-side 12″ single, so these two also count as one No. 1 on this chart.
  • “Mirror, Mirror” and “Work That Body” was a double A-side 12″ single, so these two also count as one No. 14 on this chart
