UK Chart Roundup: Cover Drive Talk That Talk At #1 With "Twilight"

At first, with Barbadian quartet Cover Drive, I was all like, who's this Rihanna knockoff ho. Then with their second single "Twilight," I was all, way to throw every popular search word at the wall and see if it sticks.

Turns out that the jam has completely grown on me. Sure, it's basically a 2.0 of "What's My Name" — but is that such a bad thing to aspire to? Not when it takes you to the top of the UK chart.

Meanwhile, kudos to Sia for managing to score two Top 10 singles at the same time, courtesy of her features on David Guetta's "Titanium" (which is up to #2) and Flo Rida's "Wild Ones" (new in at #5).

The UK Top 10:

1. "Twilight" - Cover Drive *new* *1 week*
2. "Titanium" - David Guetta feat. Sia
3. "Domino" - Jessie J
4. "Mama Do The Hump" - Rizzle Kicks
5. "Wild Ones" - Flo Rida feat. Sia *new*
6. "Antidote" - Swedish House Mafia feat. Knifeparty
7. "Somebody That I Used To Know" - Gotye feat. Kimbra
8. "Stronger" - Kelly Clarkson
9. "Good Feeling" - Flo Rida
10. "International Love" - Pitbull feat. Chris Brown

    This might sound like a cliche but I am definitely liking the Gotye track featuring Kimbra. There is another great song off Gotye's new album called "Save Me" - definitely worth checking out.
