UK Chart Roundup: Pharrell's "Happy" Back At #1, But Here Comes Route 94's "My Love"

Pharrell manages to climb back up to the #1 position with "Happy" on the UK chart for a fourth non-consecutive week, two full months after the song first reached the top. The first week "Happy" spent at the peak began on December 29, 2013. After being interrupted by Pitbull and Ke$ha's  "Timber" for a week, Pharrell's Oscar-nominated track went back to #1 for two more weeks, beginning on January 12, before relenting to the four-week reign of previous chart-topper, "Rather Be" by Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne.

Speaking of Jess, she also lent her vocals to Route 94's excellent, housey dance jam "My Love," which was just released in the UK and has already topped the iTunes chart. (It's also available on US iTunes.)

While I like "Happy," I'm hoping "My Love" knocks it for a loop next week on the chart.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams *4 weeks*
2. "Money On My Mind" - Sam Smith
3. "Rather Be" - Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne
4. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J
5. "Say Something" - A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
6. "Red Light" - Blame & Tiesto *new*
7. "Let Go For Tonight" - Foxes *new*
8. "Stay The Night" - Zedd feat. Hayley Williams
9. "All Of Me" - John Legend
10. "Can't Rely On You" - Paloma Faith *new*
