Sting’s enduring ballad “Fields of Gold” shines in new form on Billboard’s charts, as “Dreaming” — which reworks the song with Marshmello and P!nk — enters at No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales survey (dated Nov. 4).

The collaboration concurrently debuts at No. 12 on the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, also driven by 1.5 million official streams and 1.1 million in all-format radio audience. Plus, it starts at No. 34 on Adult Pop Airplay, where it’s Sting’s highest rank since 2006, when “Always on Your Side,” with Sheryl Crow, reached No. 11.

“Fields of Gold” rose to No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993. It also reached No. 2 on Adult Contemporary, marking Sting’s highest-charting title, and No. 24 on both Pop Airplay and Mainstream Rock Airplay. Released as the second single from Sting’s album Ten Summoner’s Tales, the song, which he solely wrote, has drawn 158 million official streams – and 5.3 billion in radio reach – to date.

“I always like it when [a] different mind takes one of my songs and adds something of their own to it,” Sting mused in an Instagram post spotlighting the release of “Dreaming.” “I never feel that possessive. I’m always interested to know where it can go.”

Added P!nk, “To meld all of the worlds … it’s fun. You can take something [and] make it new again.”

“Dreaming,” behind which Marshmello was the “prime mover,” notes Sting, is set to appear on the Tour Deluxe Edition of P!nk’s album Trustfall, due Dec. 1. The LP debuted at its No. 2 high on the Billboard 200 in March, becoming her ninth top 10 set.

“Dreaming,” meanwhile, marks Sting’s second charted dance makeover of one of his songs in as many years. His team-up with Swedish House Mafia, “Redlight” – which reworks “Roxanne,” a No. 32 hit on the Hot 100 for the Sting-fronted The Police in 1979 – reached No. 20 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs in March 2022.
