UK Chart Post: Rihanna Spanks JLS

JLS' second offering from their new album Jukebox (out Monday), "Take A Chance On Me," has become the boy band's sixth single to chart at either #1 or #2 in the UK (in this case, #2) and their eighth consecutive Top 10 hit overall. Sadly, I lost interest in these four guys after their first album, as the music just keeps getting more and more bland.

Meanwhile, Rihanna and Calvin Harris' "We Found Love" returns to #1 for a fourth non-consecutive week. Here in the States, the song has been #1 on the Hot 100 for two weeks, while it's also topped the charts in Canada, Sweden, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Finland.

Over on the UK album chart, Grand Dame Of The Elevator Dirge Susan Boyle bumps Florence + The Machine off the top with her third straight #1 LP Someone To Watch Over Me.

2011 is really going out with a whimper, isn't it?
