UK Chart Roundup: Cher Lloyd Is A Colossal Flop

It's hard to believe that a song as annoying as "With Ur Love" exists, or that Max Martin had a hand in writing it, or that you could actually feel the need to strangle Mike Posner even more so than usual after hearing his nasally rap on this trash. Alas, X Factor loser Cher Lloyd's latest single is indeed real, and it goes into the UK chart at #4 this week.

Over on the album chart, Florence + The Machine's Ceremonials captures the top spot after selling about 90,000 copies in its first week. Here in the States, Sony chucked out Susan Boyle's Someone To Watch Over Me the same week as Florence's album and Justin Bieber's Under The Mistletoe, while in the UK, the label probably knew that Flo and SuBo would be too much competition for each other, and thus held Boyle over for release until this week.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Read All About It" - Professor Green feat. Emeli Sande *2 weeks*
2. "We Found Love" - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
3. "Earthquake" - Labrinth feat. Tinie Tempah
4. "With Ur Love" - Cher Lloyd feat. Mike Posner *new*
5. "Moves Like Jagger" - Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera
6. "Lego House" - Ed Sheeran
7. "Sexy And I Know It" - LMFAO
8. "Wherever You Will Go" - Charlene Soraia
9. "Mr. Know It All" - Kelly Clarkson
10. "Without You" - David Guetta feat. Usher
