By Chelsea Lewis ,

Avicii has managed to take the number one spot on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Avicii was at the top spot with his single "Wake Me Up!" and now "Hey Brother," also by the Swedish DJ, has taken over the top spot.

Last week, "Hey Brother" was at the second spot on the Dance charts, Billboard reported. The single sold 74,000 downloads this week. To date "Hey Brother" has sold over 907,000 units.

"Hey Brother" features the un-credited bluegrass vocals from Union Station's Dan Tyminski.

"Wake Me Up!" was at the top of the charts for over 26 weeks.

Avicii is the first artist to have two No.1 tracks on the charts since the chart was created in 2013.

Digital Spy reported that Avicii will be working with Madonna on an upcoming track. The Material Girl recently posted a picture on Instagram announcing that she was headed into the studio with the "Hey Brother" producer.
