English singer-songwriter Pixie Lott leads a slew of new entries in the upper echelons of the UK Top 40 Singles Chart as her new single ‘All About Tonight‘ storms in at # 1, making it her 3rd # 1 and her 12th consecutive top 20 hit in the UK. This one’s pretty infectious, and check out those damn legs in the sexy video for this funky electro-dance jam!
Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera refuse to budge anywhere as ‘Moves Like Jagger‘ stays put at # 2 for yet another week. British-Irish girl group The Saturdays score their 10th UK Top 10 hit as ‘All Fired Up‘ blasts in at # 3. An impressive feat, considering that they’ve been around for just 4 years. The girls glam it up and look fantastic in their new video.
Pop royalty Leona Lewis debuts at # 4 with ‘Collide‘, the first single from her 3rd album ‘Glassheart‘ scheduled for release on the 28th of November, 2011. The song ran into trouble a while ago when allegations of plagiarizing a song ‘Penguin‘ by Swedish singer Avicii was levied on Leona. Guess the matter was settled cuz the song has now been credited to both Leona Lewis and Avicii. This time around, Leona seems to have chosen a different sound, going the dance-pop way rather than releasing a power-ballad. Her voice still remains the strong point of ‘Collide‘ though, and the result sounds like a potential hit for Leona.
Last week’s topper on the singles chart Example debuted at # 1 on the Top 40 Albums Chart with his new album ‘Playing In The Shadows‘, while Adele’s ‘21‘ moves up 2 places to # 2 in its 33rd chart week. Adele also moves down a notch to # 8 with her début album ‘19‘, that spends an astonishing 130 weeks on the chart. Legend Doris Day creates history as she becomes the oldest artist of all time to début in the top 10 of the UK Top 40, as her first album in nearly 2 decades, ‘My Heart‘ enters the charts at # 9.
