Craig David Dances Past Kylie And The Spice Girls

Remember when a suave, sophisticated Craig David sent classy pop choons like "Fill Me In," "Walking Away" and "7 Days" fluttering up the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with all the smooth ease of a bottle of Cognac before a one-night stand?

Yeah, well screw that! Now Craig's gettin' his sold-out, ghetto, '80s samplin' machine on and kicking hot jams like "Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)" into the U.K. Top 10 (#7). Love the retro Bobby Brown fly girls! And the tiger? Class.

Outside the Top 10, as mentioned yesterday, Spice Girls debut at #20 with "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" based off download sales ahead of the single's physical availability. Kylie Minogue fares better, entering at #12. Though for all the collective hype surrounding these six broads and their comebacks, you'd expect higher positions -- especially since Sugababes landed at #1 a month ago on downloads alone.

Anyway, congrats to Robyn for hanging in there and only falling one notch to #18 with "Handle Me." Good tune, that.

On the U.K. album chart, Britney Spears sees Blackout plunge from last week's debut of #2 to #13. It'll be interesting to see how much it drops here in the States. So far her chart positions for Blackout and "Gimme More" (#3) have been equal in both countries.

Of course, this is all trivia that will pass Britney by, as she's likely more concerned with shoving a frappucino straw up her coffee filter. Oops!...

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Bleeding Love" - Leona Lewis *3 weeks*
2. "Rule The World" - Take That
3. "Apologize" - Timbaland feat. OneRepublic
4. "Valerie" - Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse
5. "Home" - Westlife
6. "About You Now" - Sugababes
7. "Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)" - Craig David
8. "Gimme More" - Britney Spears
9. "No One" - Alicia Keys
10. "Uninvited" - Freemasons feat. Bailey Tzuke
