Dance/Electronic Albums

Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Dance/Electronic Albums (formerly Top Electronic Albums) is a music chart published weekly by Billboard magazine which ranks the top-selling electronic music albums in the United States.[1] The chart debuted on the issue dated June 30, 2001. It originally began as a fifteen-position chart and has since expanded to twenty-five positions. Rankings are compiled by point-of-purchase sales obtained by Nielsen SoundScan data and from legal digital downloads from a variety of internet music stores.

Top Electronic Albums features full-length albums by artists who are associated with electronic music genres (house, techno, IDM, trance, etc.) as well as pop-oriented dance music and electronic-leaning hip hop. Also eligible for this chart are remix albums by otherwise non-electronic-based artists and DJ-mixed compilation albums and film soundtracks which feature a majority of electronic or dance music. The first number-one title on the Top Electronic Albums was the original soundtrack to the film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. The Fame by Lady Gaga has the most weeks at number one with 108 weeks and the most weeks on chart (with 241 weeks). She and the Daft Punk duo spent so far (as December 2014) 368 weeks on the charts with their works.

In 2019, Billboard added a companion chart, Dance/Electronic Album Sales, which tracks the top 15 albums based solely on physical sales, but with an emphasis on core Dance/Electronic artists.
