Country legend Dolly Parton has now become a dance music #1 titleholder.

One of the most unexpected collaborations in dance music history, "Faith" featuring Dolly Parton and Mr. Probz by Galantis, just reached number one on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Digital Sales chart. Unsurprisingly, this marks the first time the country music legend has gone #1 on an electronic music chart.

Interestingly enough, the previous title holder Kygo also featured a legendary non-EDM artist, in the form of his track "Higher Love" with the late Whitney Houston. Although this is the first time Parton has reached number one on a dance chart, according to Billboard, she has charted in the Top 100 several times over the past few decades. 

Just this week, the Swedish duo announced a 2020 tour in honor of their upcoming album. Prior to that, they were forced to cancel some upcoming shows due to an ankle injury sustained by member Christian Karlsson

The entire Dance/Electronic Digital Sales chart can be viewed here. To view past the top three entries, Billboard requires you to be a paid PRO member. 

"Faith" ft. Mr. Probz by Galantis and Dolly Parton is out now. You can download and stream the genre-crossing single here.
