UK Chart Roundup: Stooshe Are Doing Just Okay

I like Stooshe enough, but I'm not sure if they're a great girl group just yet. Sure, "Black Heart" wound up on Chart Rigger's 10 Best Pop Singles Of 2012 list. And "Waterfalls" was an okay, if entirely unnecessary, cover. So now we're on to "Slip," the latest single to promote the band's London With The Lights On album. It's a fairly nice spoonful of retro Motown, the likes of which we've heard a multitude of times before. The song makes a so-so leap into the Top 40, up to #12 this week.

So, "okay," "nice," "so-so"...all of this is to to say that maybe Stooshe will truly break out with an original, trademark sound and a spectacular string of singles with album #2? Something tells me, this far into things their first go around, it's just not going to happen yet.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Get Lucky" - Daft Punk *4 weeks*
2. "Let Her Go" - Passenger
3. "Heart Attack" - Demi Lovato *new*
4. "Can't Hold Us" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
5. "Waiting All Night" - Rudimental feat. Ella Eyre
6. "Blackout" - Wretch 32 feat. Shakka *new*
7. "So Good To Me" - Chris Malinchak
8. "This Is What It Feels Like" - Armin Van Buuren
9. "Play Hard" - David Guetta feat. Ne-Yo & Akon
10. "Endorphins" - Sub Focus feat. Alex Clare *new*
