Another Week, Another Couple Grand For Shakira

This week finds "Hips Don't Lie" still gyrating away at the top of the UK singles chart, plus a couple American R&B hits belatedly making an appearance in the Top 10. One of which, "Me & U" by Cassie, is actually quite good. Also, it's been some time since Arctic Monkeys had a single out in their home country. Going in at #4, "Leave Before The Lights Come On" follows the April release of the band's EP, Who The Fuck Are The Arctic Monkeys.

Elsewhere, good ol' Beyoncé debuts at #21 with grand ol' "Déjà Vu", based on downloads alone. Can she best the #4 U.S. peak the song had, once the physical single is released this coming week? The excitement of it all...

The UK Top 10:

1. "Hips Don't Lie" - Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean *5 weeks*
2. "Ridin'" - Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone
3. "Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away)" - Dave Guetta Vs. The Egg
4. "Leave Before The Lights Come On" - Arctic Monkeys *new*
5. "Everytime We Touch" - Cascada
6. "Me & U" - Cassie
7. "Ain't No Other Man" - Christina Aguilera
8. "You Give Me Something" - James Morrison
9. "Unfaithful" - Rihanna
10. "Dancing In The Dark" - Micky Modelle Vs. Jessy *new*

    Arctic Monkeys really spunked fast as Paul might say. They have not really been able to sustain that first CD, perhaps because everybody had it before they had it.

    Shakira. Oy.

    yay! I was trying to work spunked and dude into my vocab this weekend and it is starting to pay off... in chart matters, i am looking forward to the chart over the next couple of weeks - will be interesting to see how Keane's Crystal Ball does and also The Feeling Never Be Lonely. Notice how their glorious debut album is rocketing back up the charts. Viva DSG!
