UPDATED: Frankmusik Vanishes I'm Blind

Sigh. After last week's rant over Frankmusik not faring nearly as well on the U.K. chart with "Confusion Girl" as the equally decent "Supernova" by Mr Hudson, he's now dropped out of the Top 40 entirely. Correction: My bad, he's at #32, as Paul and Scopitone Saturday pointed out in the comments. My craving to rush off for Chinese food had me momentarily blinded! So, hurray, Vincent Frank!

The Top 10 is pretty much unchanged this week, save for the fact that the Black Eyed Peas now have a simultaneous #1 single on both shores, with "I Gotta Feeling." Whoop-de-doo. I guess we should acknowledge the fact that here in the States, the BEPs have set a record with the most consecutive weeks (17!) at the top of the Billboard Hot 100—12 with "Boom Boom Pow," and now five with "I Gotta Feeling."

Elsewhere on the Brit chart, Little Boots pops up at #33 with "Remedy" two weeks ahead of the single's physical release.

Alright, F this—I'm off to get dim sum.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "I Gotta Feeling" - The Black Eyed Peas *1 week*
2. "Beat Again" - JLS
3. "Supernova" - Mr Hudson feat. Kanye West
4. "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" - Pitbull
5. "Evacuate The Dancefloor" - Cascada
6. "Sweet Dreams" - Beyonce
7. "Bulletproof" - La Roux
8. "Paparazzi" - Lady Gaga
9. "When Love Takes Over" - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland
10. "Poppiholla" - Chicane
