Our most favoured to go #1 this week Diana Vickers gets what she deserves. The Blackburn born singer who rose to fame after appearing on the X-Factor zoomed to #1 this week as her debut single, ‘Once’ smashed competition from last week’s #1 Usher, Plan B and Chipmunk.
D.Vix as we call her is ready for the release of her debut album, ‘Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree’ which will be released in Ireland this Friday and in the UK next Monday. Can she maintain a #1 and have a double whammy two weeks from now? Let’s wait and see.
Usher, drops to #2 with ‘OMG’ after 1 week at the top. Chipmunk’s latest offering with Esmee Denters peaked at #2 in the midweeks but settled eventually at #3 with ‘Until You Were Gone’.
A big surprise in the top 10 is legendary pop icon, Tina Turner who sees her 1989 single, ‘The Best’ re-enter the top 40 thanks to the Rangers FC whom started a campaign to get Tina to #1. With this, Tina Turner is the female artist with the longest span in the history of the UK singles charts. Her first single to be released in the UK was release in 1966.
Fourth biggest new entry this week belongs to the Glee Cast. Their remake of the All-American Rejects track ‘Gives You Hell’ gives them their 9th UK top 40 single. ‘Gives You Hell’ is their first #1 single in Ireland which was announced last Friday
Kate Nash’s ‘Do-Wah-Doo’ suffers a 6 places drop to #21 this week. Her sophomore album released last Monday ‘My Best Friend Is You’ enters the albums chart at #8.
Other notable new entries in the top 40 include 3OH!3’s debut single in the US and their re-released UK single ‘Don’t Trust Me’ enters at #22. Glee also has 2 other songs in the top 40 with their cover of ‘Hello’ debuting at #35 and the 19-week old track ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ which peaked at #2 is back at #38.
