Olly Murs UK #1 "Please Don't Let Me Go" Is An Old-Schooly Good Time
Anyway, the 2009 X Factor runner-up's debut single topped the UK chart this week. It's charming enough, and kind of makes me worried for Joe McElderry, who's been working on his own debut album with Dallas Austin, as evidenced by this not-staged-at-all (yeahright) photo.
Oh, yeah—Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" debuts at #2, which is where she's at on the Billboard Hot 100, too. I know what she'd have to do to get another #1 single, but Christian girls don't do that too often. Unless they're banging Russell Brand. Then it's kind of a prerequisite. So expect it to top the chart next week. Her same-titled album is #1 at least.
On a final note, Hurts' "Wonderful Life" drops from #21 to #33. The duo's album Happiness, a bright spot in this year's releases, is out tomorrow.
