UK Chart Roundup: Gary Barlow Has A Royal Diamond Jubilee Debut With 'Sing' EP

Gary Barlow's Diamond Jubilee tune "Sing" may have settled for a debut just outside of the Top 10 (at #11) on the UK single chart, but its parent EP has entered at #1 on the album roundup.

The rainy jubilee celebration is of course happening today in a very grey London, and the Buckingham Palace-held Diamond Jubilee Concert, which Barlow, Elton John and Paul McCartney are performing at, goes down tomorrow.

Here's Queen Elizabeth II's fleet of boats (over a thousand) in the flotilla going down the River Thames today.

Barlow co-wrote "Sing" with Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber, and the EP's chart-topping debut means Paloma Faith's Fall To Grace is forced to enter at #2 on the UK album chart, while Scissor Sisters go in at #4 with their fourth LP Magic Hour.

Meanwhile, poor Saint Etienne tumble from #26 to #91 with Words And Music By Saint Etienne in the album's second week on the chart.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Feel The Love" - Rudimental feat. John Newman *new* *1 week*
2. "We Are Young" - fun. feat. Janelle Monae
3. "Euphoria" - Loreen *new*
4. "When She Was Mine" - Lawson *new*
5. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen
6. "Where Have You Been" - Rihanna
7. "Too Close" - Alex Clare
8. "R.I.P." - Rita Ora feat. Tinie Tempah
9. "Drive By" - Train
10. "Chasing The Sun" - The Wanted

    The Gary Barlow song? Does he even sing on it? Anyhoo, who cares? It's shit.

    The Loreen single is not a new entry, this is its second week, climbing from No. 85 to No. 3.
