UK Chart Roundup: 5 Seconds Of Summer, Martin Garrix & Faul Shake Up The Top 10

And so Duke Dumont's Whitney Houston-sampling house jam "I Got U" is replaced atop the UK chart by Australian boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer and their song about American Apparel underwear, "She Looks So Perfect." Excellent.

The more interesting stuff is actually happening below this trash, as Faul and Wad Ad's re-swizzing of Pnau's 2007 song "Baby," now titled "Changes," goes in at #3. Little kiddies singing above a house beat? Saucy!

This brings us to Martin Garrix and Jay Hardway's dance cut "Wizard," which debuts at #7. Seventeen year old Dutch DJ Garrix hit #1 in the UK a few weeks back with "Animals" (which is currently at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100), so hopefully he's spending his newfound cash on something classy like back-alley Amsterdam hookers and blow.

1. "She Looks So Perfect" - 5 Seconds Of Summer *new* *1 week*
