Sting storms to the summit of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Sept. 14) with "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free 2019" (2-1). One of six songs produced by Dave Aude for Sting's My Songs release, "Free" was remixed by Tom Stephan, among others.
Sting's original version of the song hit No. 10 on the tally in 1985. He earns his fourth No. 1, following "Send Your Love" (October 2003), "Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing)" (featuring Twista; August 2004) and an update of "Car," with Mylene Farmer (February 2016).
"When Sting asked me to produce for My Songs, I asked if I could work on 'If You Love Somebody Set Them Free,' as it's one of my all-time favorite Sting songs," Aude recently told Billboard. "It's the only one that I totally flipped on its head, and the result is pure dancefloor magic. I'm beyond proud."
