UK Chart Roundup: Gary Barlow Lands First Solo #1 In 15 Years

Gary Barlow racks up his third solo #1 single on the UK chart with "Sing" in the same week the parent EP retains its hold atop the album chart. Last week "Sing" debuted at #11, but has now jumped to the top following Gary's performance of the Queen's official Diamond Jubilee song outside Buckingham Palace earlier in the week.

Meanwhile, the last time Gaz hit the top by himself in his home country was in 1997, when the Madonna and Shep Pettibone co-write "Love Won't Wait" became his second consecutive chart-topper, after "Forever Love."

But let's get down to brass tacks... doesn't he look like some gay daddy who got lost while wandering to from Old Compton Street in the pic above?

1. "Sing" - Gary Barlow feat. The Commonwealth Band *1 week*
2. "Whistle" - Flo Rida *new*
3. "We Are Young" - fun. feat. Janelle Monae
