American Idol's Blake Lewis Scores No. 1 Dance Hit
"Dance music has always been a passion of mine, from my younger days rocking the mic at all the Seattle raves, to making the dance floor shake now. This album represents me from my roots," said Lewis. "I am so happy that more and more people are responding to my music – that has always been my original goal and I'm so stoked to be topping these charts, it's such a compliment to the countless hours I've put into creating this music!"
Lewis' American Idol competitor Jordin Sparks is the only other former top-two finalist to top the Dance/Club Play Songs chart and Kelly Clarkson is the only other American Idol performer to top the Hot Dance Airplay chart back in 2005.
