The remix, re-imagined by Kupper from Garland’s legendary 1961 album, Judy at Carnegie Hall, debuted as the chart’s No. 1 Breakout track; in following weeks it was the Hot Shot Debut (No. 41) and a Power Pick (No. 30), all with a bullet, and it continues to move up the list. This week, the track is No. 26 (with a bullet), in sync with today’s commercial release debut. The remix’s success adds to Eric Kupper’s impressive tally of more than 120 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club chart, including his history-making three consecutive No. 1 remixes in 2018-’19 for Diana Ross’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “I’m Coming Out/Upside Down”, and “The Boss”, released by Motown/Ume/Universal Music Canada.
