“Listen To Your Heart” hits #1 on Dance Radio Airplay chart


NEW YORK (UPDATED) - On Billboard's Dance Radio Airplay chart, the cover version of "Listen To Your Heart" by D.H.T. reached the #1 position this week, leaving behind acts like Gwen Stefani with "Hollaback Girl" and Kelly Osbourne with her latest single, "One Word."

  Meanwhile, the song rises another six places up to #30 on its sixth week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single is still highlighted with a gold tint, meaning that it is still expected to climb more.

  "I think their version is totally OK," Per says to The Daily Roxette when asked what he thinks of D.H.T.'s covers. "There's an 'unplugged' version that is ummm, sort of good. It feels like they like the original because they are very true to our version, except for the techno part of course! But it's sort of the same vocals… nice and open," Per tells TDR. "So, go D.H.T.!, Per cheers. "Let's hope it goes to #1 on the 'big chart' as well!"

  Robbins Entertainment, the duo's US record label, continues to invest money in promotion. An industry publicist was hired last Friday and a new music video was shot in a studio here in New York on Tuesday.
