Axwell's Gonna Party Like It's 1990-Something

Kanye West's "Stronger" unseats Robyn from the top position of the official U.K. singles chart this week, though he remains stuck at #6 in the U.S. "Stronger" -- which builds its hook around Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" -- is a nice enough change for Kanye, but you can't help but wonder if the single isn't getting more attention due to all the macho yammering by 50 Cent about the forthcoming showdown the week both their albums are released in September.

Elsewhere, Swede DJ Axwell and Max'C's summer rave jam, "I Found U," enters the British Top 10, suddenly making things sound like it's 1992 again, as we goon out on the blue pills and dance holes into our shoes in an abandoned warehouse.

Rounding things out, Darren Hayes unfortunately drops out of the Top 40 after "On The Verge Of Something Wonderful" debuted at #20 last week, and Robyn's self-titled LP debuts at that same position this week on the U.K. album chart.

The U.K. Top 10

1. "Stronger" - Kanye West *1 week*
2. "With Every Heartbeat" - Robyn with Kleerup
3. "The Way I Are" - Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.
4. "Foundations" - Kate Nash
5. "Hey There Delilah" - Plain White T's
6. "I Found U" - Axwell feat. Max'c
7. "Big Girls Don't Cry" - Fergie
8. "Clothes Off" - Gym Class Heroes
9. "Love Is Gone" - Dave Guetta feat. Chris Willis
10. "Dream Catch Me" - Newton Faulkner

    i'm not a big kanye fan, though i really want him to beat out 26.2pence in his battle for chart supremecy. I find it a little discouraging that Darren has plummeted like a stone and Robyn's album, while hugely promoted, hasn't really done that well. And yet i'm not sure why it's discouraging...
    Nice to see Hard-Fi debut so high on downloads alone but Kt all the way down at 34 :( Boo you whores...
