From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hot Dance Singles Sales (formerly known as Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales) is a chart released weekly by Billboard magazine in the United States. It measures the sale of commercially released singles that deal with dance music and remixes. It was formerly known as Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales, when the chart was restricted to sales of the 12" Maxi Single and CD Maxi Single format, but in recent years, singles only released in the CD Single format have apparently been counted too.

The Hot Dance Singles Sales once included non-dance songs and singles without dance remixes if they were released as maxi singles, including singles by such artists as the Industrial metal band Ministry and alternative rock band The Smiths. It was felt that this rule misled the chart's purpose of measuring the sales of dance music, and thus non-dance/non-remix maxi singles have more recently been excluded from this chart. As a result, although many non-dance acts release singles today in the maxi single format, they are not included in this chart unless the single includes dance remixes.
