UK Charts: Cascada prevents MJ from getting double whammy.

English Electro-dance singer, Cascada prevents Michael Jackson from gaining a double whammy in this week’s UK charts. Cascada, enters the singles charts at #1 with her latest “Evacuate The Dancefloor” while Jackson settles at #2 with “Man in The Mirror”.

Jackson still has 13 of his singles enter the top 40 this week. Second highest placer is his 1980’s classic “Billie Jean” which lands at #10. Jackson also has 7 of his albums reach the top 75 of the UK albums chart with “The Essentials” topping off the cliff. “Number Ones” slips to 3.

Last week’s #1 La Roux, slips to 3 this week with “Bulletproof” while GaGa dips a notch but still is in the top 5 with “Paparazzi”.

Second biggest new entry this week belongs to Jamie T which sees his latest single “Stick ‘n’ Stones” marching up at #15.

Although quite disappointing, The Saturdays gains up 7 places this week upon the release of their latest single “Work”. They jumped from #29 to #22 this week.

La Roux also sees her debut album settling at a #2 position. If only MJ hadn’t died, she’d be #1. I guess. click HERE for a review of “La Roux”.

    Of all the artists, did it have to be Cascada that held Michael Jackson off from that number one spot? I mean the song's not that bad but THE SATURDAYS ARE BETTER! hahah.

    well The Saturdays would have place top twenty if it weren't for the MJ songs i guess. I remember the week Princess Diana died and Kylie's comeback single peaked at 22 also which was considered disappointing. I'd say perhaps people don't want pop, but then Cascada's number one so who knows?! Work is the 5th single from a decent selling album though…

    I like Cascada's single. Haha. But I do think if MJ hadn't died, as Paul said The Sats would've had landed a much higher position.

    Re: Paul

    Yep. There's still hope for the Sats. I believe.
