Florence + The Machine, Newton Faulkner Top UK Charts!


Florence Welsh – you talented creature you! For all the accolades this woman has received in this part of the world, the fact that she has yet to earn a UK # 1 single is preposterous, shocking and rather unfair. Thankfully all that changed last night (hallelujah). With a little help from Calvin Harris (what a surprise), Florence + The Machine’s ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)‘ soars in at # 1 on the UK Top 40 Singles Chart, earning the songstress supreme her first EVER # 1 single! ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)‘ knocks off Maroon 5’s ‘Payphone‘ featuring Wiz Khalifa from the penthouse.

Over at the UK Top 40 Albums Chart, English singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner collects his second UK # 1 album as ‘Write It On Your Skin‘ debuts at the top, narrowly beating game-changing Hip-Hop vocalist Frank Ocean’s sexuality revealing album ‘Channel Orange‘ which comes in at # 2 selling barely 3,000 copies less than the # 1 album.
