UK Chart Roundup: Cee Lo Green Says Take That, Robbie Williams And Gary Barlow

Midweek chart figures showed that Cee Lo Green's "F**k You" (or "Forget You" in its clean version) was outselling what was probably expected to be a #1 duet from Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow, "Shame."

And now that all is said and done, the Take That gents indeed have to settle for a #2 debut in the wake of Cee Lo's four-letter charge to the top. Oh, well—at least the pair have the That's epic, soaring single "The Flood" on the way. If that one gets harshed on the way to #1 in November, I'd be highly surprised.

Interestingly, "Shame" now makes the highest charting UK single with Gary Barlow listed as the artist since his 1997 jam "Open Road" reached #7. God, where is time going?

Like "Shame," Robbie Williams "Bodies" also hit #2 last October. Both he and Gary were featured on the Helping Haiti charity cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts," which debuted at #1 earlier this year.

Also appearing on that one was Kylie Minogue, whose "Get Outta My Way" debuted at #12 last week but drops to #31 on the new chart. Boooo!
