Sugababes Remixes Give "About You Now" An Early U.K. Chart Boost

If 50 Cent and Babyshambles are your cup of tea, then hoo-ray, it's a très fab U.K. singles chart for you to celebrate this week. But for us lovers of all things melody 'n sass, it's the #35 entry of Sugababes' "About You Now" that gives something to doff our caps over. It appears based on digital sales of the single's remix EP ahead of the October 1 physical CD release. Additionally, last year's hits set from the 'babes, Overloaded: The Singles Collection, flies up 128 positions on the U.K. album chart, to #71.

James Blunt's All The Lost Souls lands the #1 album spot. Looking ahead, it'll be interesting to see how Shayne Ward's long-delayed "If That's OK With You" -- now double-A sided with "No U Hang Up" -- and the PWL comeback single from The Sheilas fare on next week's chart.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Beautiful Girls" - Sean Kingston *4 weeks*
2. "Ayo Technology" - 50 Cent feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland
3. "Hey There Delilah" - Plain White T's
4. "Stronger" - Kanye West
5. "1973" - James Blunt
6. "Delivery" - Babyshambles *new*
7. "She's So Lovely" - Scouting For Girls
8. "The Pretender" - Foo Fighters
9. "Shut Up And Drive" - Rihanna
10. "The Way I Are" - Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson & D.O.E.

    Well no sign of The Sheilas in the top 75 on downloads, so who knows how the physical release is going to fare. I for one hope they make it!

    naturally the more interesting stuff happens outside the top ten. Huge huge media push for RyanDan - no single to be seen in thetop forty (though i suspect their more of an albums act - time will tell next week) yet Billiam on a tiny label debut at 32 mainly based on tours of schools and gay clubs on downloads alone.
    I'm a little worried for Shayne - i am hoping that people won't start thinking "wait, that's his new single? Thats been out ages..."
