UK Chart Roundup: I'd Hit It With Olly Murs

I really don't have the strength to bother with this week's #1 single on the UK chart. Utter shit.

That said, Olly Murs latest jam "Thinking Of Me" is worthy of its #4 entry, while Jessie J's "Do It Like A Dude"—which the blogosphere collectively masturbated over but nobody bought—flops in at #25.

Elsewhere, Kylie Minogue flies up to #40 with "Better Than Today" two weeks ahead of the single's official release date. (For more on mine and other bitches' thoughts on Jessie J and Kylie's singles, see the latest edition of Pop Trash Addicts' Pop Panel.)

Over on the Brit album chart Take That retain the top spot after selling more than 208,000 copies of Progress in week number two. That gives the LP a grand total of 728,000 copies moved since its release.


The U.K. Top 10:

1. "Heroes" - The X Factor Finalists 2010 *new* *1 week* 
2. "Your Song" - Ellie Goulding
3. ""Love You More" - JLS
4. "Thinking Of Me" - Olly Murs *new*
5. "Only Girl (In The World)" - Rihanna 
6. "The Flood" - Take That
7. "Like A G6" - Far East Movement feat. The Cataracs & Dev
8. "Firework" - Katy Perry
9. "Make You Feel My Love" - Adele
10. "What's My Name" - Rihanna feat. Drake

    I yawned the first time I heard "Thinking of Me," but it has really grown on me. As for Jessie J, this track just felt like a preview than a full-fledged single. "Price Tag" should be the big hit, but I guess that's out in March.

    Not sure where you got your numbers from for the Take That album in week two, but it was down over 60% week on week.

    Thanks, Andy! Got some bad info, I s'pose. Fixed!

    John, just feeling lukewarm on Jessie J at the moment. Time will tell?
