UK Charts: Beyonce, Leona triumph this week

Sorry for the late post…

Britain’s Leona Lewis and American superstar Beyonce have triumphed against their respective competitors this week namely, Dido and the X-Factor stars.

Beyonce’s “If I Were A Boy” knocked off the 3 week #1 “Hero” performed by the X-Factor finalists.

The Killers is also rising in the chart position this week with their latest single “Human” ups a notch from #4 to #3 this week.

Katy Perry’s follow up to “IKAG”, “Hot N Cold” climbs to a new peak of #5 from #7 last week.

The Highest new entry in the top 40 is Snow Patrol’s “Run” which re-surfaces the charts after 4 years at #28 beating Robyn and Christian Falk’s collaboration “Dream On” which debuts at #29.

In the albums chart, Leona Lewis is back at #1 with the deluxe edition of her debut CD “Spirit” which became the fastest selling debut album of all time. She defeated Dido, which was #1 in the midweek albums chart with her third CD “Safe Trip Home”.

I’m guessing Leona should’ve had a double whammy this week if it weren’t for the evil tactics of Simon Cowell allowing the download for Leona’s “Run” starting on December 1. Her vesion of the Snow Patrol original went to #1 in the Irish Singles Charts this week and her deluxe CD at #2.

1. (3) Beyoncé: ‘If I Were A Boy’
