UK Chart Post: Cheryl Cole's Second Decent Solo Single, "Call My Name", Is Rightfully #1

Apparently Cheryl Cole is all classy and ultra-famous now, and only goes by her first name, as evidenced by her billing on her third #1 single in the UK, "Call My Name." I've been a fan of this Calvin Harris-produced jam since it first sauntered into the pop lexicon back in April, and so I'm not to vexed to see this vocal torturess achieve some success this time around.

"Call My Name" is now Cheryl's third solo chart-topper in her home country, and all three of her #1s to-date have been the lead singles off her solo albums. If you ask me,  it's also this broad's first good single since her debut one, "Fight For This Love."

At any rate, "Call My Name" sold 152,000 copies in the UK over the past week, thus marking the best sales week for a single in the country so far in 2012.

But let's get down to brass tacks here: there's a fucking Precision Tunes karaoke version of Maroon 5's "Payphone" IN THE TOP 10 THIS WEEK (!!), since the real deal has yet to be made digitally available in the UK. That, FYI, is like 14 rungs lower than Glee cover version Hell.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Call My Name" - Cheryl *new* *1 week*
2. "Whistle" - Flo Rida 
3. "Sing" - Gary Barlow feat. The Commonwealth Band
4. "Princess Of China" - Coldplay feat. Rihanna
5. "Feel The Love" - Rudimental feat. John Newman
6. "We Are Young" - fun. feat. Janelle Monae
7. "The Power" - DJ Fresh feat. Dizzee Rascal
8. "Scream" - Usher
9. "Payphone" - Precision Tunes *new*
10. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen
