UK Chart Roundup: The Black Eyed Peas Cock Block Willow Smith, Kylie Has Seen Better Days

So maybe The Black Eyed Peas are simply a singles act now? Their shit new song "The Time (Dirty Bit)" has topped the UK chart, thereby holding Willow Smith back at #2 with "Whip My Hair." Meanwhile, the group's album The Beginning had a disastrous debut at #17 last week but has now managed to scrape its way up to #9.

Kylie Minogue has a dismal chart week with "Better Than Today", which is at #32 in its official week of release. Not since digital-only single "The One" went to #36 has the poor broad has such a tragic showing on the UK chart.

Of course, Kylie doesn't fair nearly as bad as poor Joe McElderry, who lands with a thud at #68 with "Someone Wake Me Up." Yay, X Factor—it's now as relevant as American Idol!
